Sterling lost his first tooth last night. He’d mentioned earlier in the day that he had bumps on the inside of his gums that hurt. I told him he must have scratched them up on toast or some such thing. He complained again later, so I looked to see what was going on. His adult […]
Liberty’s making pancakes – from a mix. She’s over an hour in and I just heard the first oil spray hit the pan. I can teach them how to cook… but how on earth do you teach them speed?! Sterling asked me how big a yard was. My reply was, “3 feet. 36 inches. A […]
Underthings proclamation and other short stories.
I was in a dressing room, trying on a purple maternity dress. Charlotte tagged along. “Mom! That dress matches your glasses!” Yes. Yes it does. “It matches your…” she searched for the next purple item she could name. “PANTIES, TOO!” Could you say that a little louder, dear? I’m not quite sure the cashier at […]
Dear Son, you drive me crazy sometimes.
I’ve had an empty container hanging on my wall for three months, waiting for me to be inspired and figure out how to use it in my attempts at decorating. I finally found something looking like this: at the local craft store. It was $10. It’s a bunch of sticks! We have five acres, surely […]
One day last week, I fought with a new hair pony that had a bow attached. The girls and I discussed how it was cute, but so hard to get the bow to lay correctly. The next morning, Sterling came to me, all excited. “I fixed it!” The bow was in two pieces, and the […]
Confusion with Ruby.
Ruby: “Sterling, you’re weird.” My ears perked up. I’m pretty sure she’s never heard anyone called weird before. I’m also nearly certain she has NO CLUE what it means. “The only person weirder than you is Satan,” she continued. Now I’m quite certain she has no idea what she’s saying. “No, you’re even weirder than […]
Remember the day I met my neighbor in Walmart? I made an update later and, well, nothing much has happened since then. I called to see if I could bring them a meal shortly after Christmas and was told, quite firmly, by the wife that they did not need my help. Uncertain what to do […]
Lazy summer days…
Ruby gets full enjoyment out of the swing. You know, as opposed to the lesser enjoyment she gets out of other things in life. No, not so much. Life is full speed ahead and quite the fun game for Ruby. (And she wears this dress about three days a week. As in, every time it’s […]
Here I sit, typing a post that can’t be published for another two days – I hope it’s only two days, anyway. Life without internet seems strangely quiet. I rather expected to have a bunch more free time, but I don’t. I have a bunch more nauseous and tired time instead. Something about a rolling […]
Just because I felt like it.
Pierce walked up to Sterling, grabbed his arm at the wrist and elbow, and bit him for all he was worth mid-forearm. He got enough skin it apparently didn’t hurt too bad, because in slow motion, Sterling realized he was being bitten, turned, saw Pierce, and hollered, “Pie-rce!” Pierce let go, looked up, saw I’d […]
