Strep

Strep throat has hit our house. Claire and I are down and being treated. Caroline woke up this morning with a scratchy throat. Dang it.

Dog days

Some days just aren't a win. I took the day off today to hang out with the girls, as our babysitter had some things she needed to do today. The dog needed shots etc... and today was a good enough day for it. When I told the kids it was time to go and that... Continue Reading →

It was lovely. Except Nobody told me ANY jokes. Nobody fought over who got to hold my hand. There was... Continue Reading →

Only moderately crazy.

Today I felt crazy. Even crazier than normal. For the past 4-5 days Claire has been belligerent.  Every single thing I have asked her has gone like this. Me- "Claire, would you rather take your frog (toy) to your room or put it on the shelf?" (Trying to trick her into thinking she had a... Continue Reading →
