Note: No, Paige did not eat the Snickers bar. She’s six months old for crying out loud. Do you think I am nuts?

I’m sure that many mothers are looking forward to lazy mornings of sleeping in and breakfast in bed. But I’m no fool. After three years of motherhood, I know that ain’t happening here. Perhaps someday I can guilt them all into it. For now, I will take my personal treat of sleeping until 6 instead […]

The Scene: Eating dinner with the family. Paige in her Exersaucer next to the table. Paige: {{Shriek, shriek!}} Will: (Leaning over the side of his highchair to see her.) It’s okay, Paige. I love you.

Reflecting on Christmas 2007

Christmas has come and gone. I did most of my shopping online this year, even though I love the crowds (gasp, I know) and the decorated stores with carols playing in the background. It just wasn’t possible with a newborn and a toddler this year . . . Snow and ice prevented us from decorating […]

“Mommy, I want this,” Will said to me the other evening, holding up a bottle of pancake syrup – the kind I wish I could banish from our house since it is anything but natural. However, Will and my husband love it so it remains. “That’s syrup, sweet pea. You can’t just eat syrup! That […]

Many moons ago, I let all my blog readers know that our family was expanding. Well, the expansion is now complete, so to speak. Our newest little home chef arrived just before Thanksgiving at 7 lbs, 6 oz., so we are now officially a party of four. Everyone is doing well. Let’s hope little Paige […]

The heat wave in New England has subsided. After day after day of intolerable heat, it was cool yesterday (while it rained) and warm today. Thank goodness. The stifling heat is just too much for this pregnant woman to take. Fortunately, today also happened to be the day that Virtual Frolic and I had planned […]

The past week has been a blur of refrigerator repairmen, work, a quick turnaround freelance project and finding every spare minute to spend with Will. Though I always spend as much time with Will (not being in the same room, but really doing things with him), this week I happened upon one too many newspaper […]

Sunday afternoon was a blast. My good friend Virtual Frolic, Will and I went to Jones Family Farms in Shelton, Conn., to pick strawberries. It was the perfect day for it — not too hot, a nice breeze and a good amount of sun. As a little girl, I used to go strawberry picking with […]

Will LOVES pizza. It is quite possibly his all-time favorite food, though he is still a little young to say for sure. Nonetheless, whenever I ask him what he wants to eat for dinner, the answer is usually pizza (or, as he says it, peet-za). Knowing that my husband would be working tonight, I decided […]
