school do’s and don’t(s)

August 27, 2012

I DID IT!!! Oh dear God, I did it. Helena is at school, we are back home, Baby Brother is asleep and Lilly (AKA “middle one”) is sitting with me watching Sesame Street. Not to exaggerate but I feel like I just ran a marathon. AND the Kentucky Derby. But not riding a horse. But, […]

new [school] year’s resolution

August 24, 2012

banana-only ice cream!

August 11, 2012

I have a seee-cret. It’s something so yummy. Ever since I had Benji I crave nothing but sweets and junk food (temporary–I know. Adjusting to nursing again), and so I’m trying to find not-so-bad-for-you alternatives to eating chocolate chips straight out of the bag. And I stumbled upon something great. Something sweeeet.

it’s not you, it’s me

August 6, 2012

From the title you might think I am breaking up with you, dear reader,or that I’m (God forbid) ending the blog, but no! that’s not it! I am merely trying to explain why I’ve been so absent these past days. Okay, okay. You got me. I’ve met someone else. He’s balding, really. And drools, and […]
