He's Just 8

This is Calvin and one of his best buddies.

Calvin is a very tall 8 year old. Taller actually than all the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders in his school. He thinks it's great! We had our first experience with some disgruntled parents (from the opposing team) at his basketball game the other day. They were sitting behind us and complaining about the kid who "was probably 13 and his parents held him back so he'd be the tallest player on his team". I froze and didn't say anything at all. But if I could do it again I'd turn and politely say "nope, that's my sweet son and he's just 8. If you look closely you'll still see baby cheeks."  Maybe we'll need to start carrying his birth certificate with us. 


These two dressed alike the other day for school. They thought it was so funny when they came out for breakfast and realized they basically had the same outfit. Because they wear uniforms it's not unusual for the boys to do this. But pretty unusual for Charlotte who has a wider array of uniform clothes.

Baby Wearing

Margo loves (loves!) her babies. She says to me frequently "I want to be a mom SO bad" or "when am I going to be a big sister?"  We found an easy way for her to wear her babies this morning.

A Reason

The other night I was looking for a recipe that I knew I had made a couple years ago.  I couldn't find it in my recipe folder and that's when I remembered I had posted it on my blog.  That long lost blog of mine.  I hadn't even clicked on the link in well over a year.  I found the recipe (remember Lasagna Soup?) and then proceeded to spend the next 2 hours lost in a sea of memories.  I couldn't stop reading my own blog!  And that's when I remembered why I started blogging in the first place - I wanted a place to record all the memories.
When I started reading (and laughing and crying) I realized how much I had forgotten.  Funny stories, thoughts that I had when my children were younger, things I thought I'd never forget.  And guess what? I had forgotten.  So I'm going to try and do this again.
Somewhere along the line I got lost in thinking that my words needed to be more eloquent or that I should be posting serious thoughts.  And that's when blogging became pressure and stress.  So things will be short and sweet around here.  In fact I just downloaded an app on my phone that will hopefully make things even easier.
Put me back on your radar (or bookmark list). But I make no promises as to how often!

I'm coming back
