school daze

The countdown has begun: C will be three in only about two and a half weeks. Sometimes I look through the archives of my blog to revisit all the things we’ve been through together. I remember when I saw her shimmy-shake across the screen for the very first time. I remember seeing her heel slide across my […]

threading the needle

This evening I was in C’s room with my sewing box. She has a pile of clothes that have needed to be mended for awhile, and since I was off work today because of the snow we got last night, I figured today was the day that I would finally get to this task. C […]

No matter how you look at it, it's still just a dress.

My office is like your office. We were talking about The Dress on Friday. It’s white and gold!, proclaimed one camp. No, it’s black and blue!, said another. I shall live tweet this debate!, I declared as the resident social media manager. Don’t go looking for those tweets, though, because I quickly remembered that I had an […]

Cee Says the Darndest Things

So, it’s been what feels like a billion years since I gave a real update on C. She’ll be three next month (I know, right?!) and she’s starting preschool this Wednesday. On Thursday, she’s going to the dentist for the first time. Out of these things, she’s most excited about the dentist. Go figure. Cee […]

sharing is caring

Ahhhhh, can you feel it? Love is in the air. Or perhaps that is the sickly sweet smell of grapes that your child left behind the sofa three weeks ago. …. … …. OK, that’s totally what it was. Moving on.  Valentine’s Day is less than a week away, and if you’re anything like me, […]

I can think of only a few things that I love more than hanging out with bloggers. They include: 1. Cheetos. Even the allure of meeting fellow oversharers pales in comparison to the radioactive goodness of dried cheese dust. 2. Target during the SuperBowl. While the rest of the world was watching football yesterday, I was […]

hat’s your Saturday morning ritual? C’mon, we know you have one. Our theory is that Saturday mornings are universally regarded as the time to take stock in the things we love most. They’re reserved for the things that make us really happy. Taking long walks. Reading to our…

Your toddler doesn't care if you're on your period, and here's why you shouldn't either.

Of all the character traits that don’t serve me well as a parent, my reluctance to take myself less seriously is probably the worst. I had had a pretty crappy day. I overslept a few minutes, I ran into traffic on my way to work, and within an hour, I could tell that it was going to take […]

10 cakes

So, today is my birthday. I’m pretty excited that I made it to 33, and I’m going to be celebrating with B by taking a staycation in Memphis sans C this weekend. Tomorrow, we’re going to an animal mummies exhibit. Obviously. I usually write thoughtful, pensive blog posts on my birthday. If you’d like to […]
