More Resel

This, right here, is why I don’t understand how single parents manage. If it were just me, who would be the kids’ wrestling partner? I am no good at wrestling with the children. Any time I try I end up just hugging them and tickling them, which is not what they want at all. Or, [...]

Because you all want to know…

GIRL! (Eli’s name suggestions so far: Bacon, Ice Cream, Poopy, and something along the lines of Gzhijyw. Really. He spelled it.) addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘Because+you+all+want+to+know%26%238230%3B’; addthis_pub = ”;

No buddy!

I haven’t yet explained to Henry that this sign really just invites in his enemies. addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘No+buddy%21′; addthis_pub = ”;

Merry Christmas!

Circular Reasoning

Ah, how I long for the days when you could just run in circles and it would pass for dancing. addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘Circular+Reasoning’; addthis_pub = ”;

Signs of the Times

Cookie baking aftermath: About to watch “Charlie Brown Christmas”: addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘Signs+of+the+Times’; addthis_pub = ”;

Christmas Presents I’m Most Excited About

Here’s what I’m excited to see the kids open in a week: I got Zuzu this Penelope Peapod doll, and I have to say it’s adorable. I have been on the fence about getting her a doll; she’s pretty into trucks and things, but she does love to cuddle with stuffed animals like they’re little [...]

This scenario, at least once a day

One of the boys fiddling with something breakable. Julie: Stop fiddling with that. It’s going to break. Boy continues fiddling. Julie: I said stop. That’s going to break. Fiddling continues. Julie: Hello! Over there! STOP! It’s going to BREAK! Other boy comes in and starts fiddling with breakable item. Julie takes breakable item away. Julie: [...]
