I know, I know. I say this every year. But for the love of whatever it is you love, people:

STOP ASKING THE BUSY PERSON! Find a lonely person. Find a new person. Reach out. Stop doing what’s easy because the busy person will always do it and then your task is done. The busy person is BUSY. 


Of Monkeys and Such

Curious George did a fantastic job of raising Little Red during my pregnancy with Boy Blue. As a result, when that impish toddler wasn’t trying to convince me to name his new brother after himself he thought we should name him George. 

The other night as I was tucking in the boys I asked Blue if he had any thoughts for naming the new baby. He replied “George,” then after a brief pause, “Lucas.”

When we shared the news with the boys that I was pregnant it was hard to tell how Blue felt about it because Red’s reaction was so huge it made the rest of us look unhappy by comparison. He screamed with joy and bounded across the room to smother me in hugs and kisses. And he said the two sweetest things:

“I’ve been wishing on dandelions for this.”


“Being a big brother to Blue was the best thing ever, I’m so glad he gets to experience that too!”
