Our Sedona Vacation House is ready!
Today’s situation: All three of us are sick, I’m pregnant and aching all over. It hurts to move. Dad is working late. The boys are destroying the master bedroom and we’re watching Food Network nonstop. We ate ramen for dinner. But my boys are safe and happy and fed. That’s my story and I’m sticking […]
This regal lady left this earth today. 16 years my companion and 8 years for Dave. She converted many people I know from “cat-haters” to “cat-tolerators.” She was loved so hard… Sammy’s first word after “mommy” and “daddy” was “kitty.” She had immeasurable patience for little babies and even the slobbery dogs.

This morning’s episode of #extremeparenting is brought to you by “button up the nose.” Button up the nose, you are no match for me. I played many hours of “Operation” as a kid. I half expected Josh to buzz as I brushed the side of his nostril, but it was more like a few whimpers. […]
