The “A” Word

Well, it's Lent.  As such, we've banished the "A" word from our vocabulary.  And thankfully, mercifully, blessedly no one's been hollering, "Mom!  She said the "A" word!" while out and about so far. That's because they're occupied with the OTHER "A" word. I blame...

Extra! Extra!

Sunday, the last day of the Christmas season, brought with it a lovely Christmas treat.  Jac, Max, Tess and I joined some dear friends to watch Little Women. Two things: First, I cried even before it began (darn those trailers!) and then all the way through.  Other...

Maxed Out

God bless Max. He keeps quietly proclaiming, "Blog post!" and making notes in my phone of the funny or traumatic or traumatically funny happenings around here. It's a hint to write, to not forget, to make available for the future. However, However. . . *insert excuses...

Mindless Mutterings

All day long I write things in my mind. Long, beautiful odes to my children or the laundry or the frost on the trees. Short, inspired poems for grating cheese. Witty, funny memoirs that will someday make up for the lack of baby books. Or would make up for that if I...

Wildlings

What is that wise and oh-so-pithy saying? "Failure to plan is a plan to fail?" Right. Planning.  That's what I should have done for school! Instead, I just kept saying yes to all the good things and then I happened to look around and realize I have been,...

In the Dark

To Gus, 6 days short of 8 months: In the dark, we walk. Twinkle lights bright through the window And your eyes soak up the glow. The creaking floors, my tired arms, They don't affect you. Awake, so awake, so I'm awake. In the dark, there is no rush. I cannot hurry...
