Different or Not So Different

Day nine, and I am just too tired to write much of anything. I haven’t adjusted well to the time change (thankfully the little man has!), so I’m feeling extra run down this week. Anyway, today’s prompt is: When was the first time that you realized that your home was not like other people’s homes? […]

Times of Tranquility

Day eight and I’m still remembering to post. Will wonders never cease? Today’s NaBloPoMo prompt is: Has anything traumatic ever happened to you? Describe the scenes surrounding a particular event. I gave this a pretty good think when I saw the prompt this morning. A few things came to mind: giving birth, when my husband […]

Family Balance?!

Here I am, up way to early in the morning because the little man woke up and asked for something to drink. He was, of course, asleep by the time I brought it to him. And, again of course, I couldn’t fall back asleep. I love my little man, but sometimes I think he is […]

A Blanket Without Eyes

Day five of NaBloPoMo, and I’d just like to lie in bed and forget about it all. Today has been one of those totally silly days where endless amounts of dumb things happen. Truthfully, I’m afraid to go make dinner. I may just burn down the house. I have burnt my finger, spilled dry spaghetti […]

Just a Hint of Fear

If you reread yesterday’s post, you might notice a bit of fear under all of the stiff-upper-lipness. Fear is something the little man inspires in me a lot. His ability to run out there (literally) and face the world head on is very frightening. It is sometimes the practical things that worry me (running into […]


Sick Day

We’ve been very lucky with the little man. In his three short years, he’s only been sick three times. Once with a minor cold, once with roseola (that was fun), and once again with a nasty cold today. Dealing with a child with a cold, especially with his first real serious cold, is an exercise […]

No Peanuts, Please

It seems like the little man is going to be That Kid. You know, the one that is allergic to peanuts, so no one can have peanut butter or store bought cookies, or any of that good stuff. Okay, that isn’t entirely true.  Yes, the little man is allergic to peanuts. We will always have […]

Looking Back on 2010 Resolutions

When I first sat down to write this entry, I was going to write about how I didn’t make any resolutions for 2010. And then I remembered that I did set some goals over on my needlework blog, Reflections in the Pond. So, I went to take a look, and lo and behold, I did […]

Winding Down the Year

With less than three weeks left in 2010, I feel like looking back and what I’ve accomplished and thinking about what I’d still like to do. 2010 started out pretty poorly, really. Baby Man threw up all over himself and me on our way to a family get together. That kicked off a year of […]
