Wendy’s First Report Card

Wednesday March 12, 2008
By

I had my first parent-teacher conference today, to review Wendy’s progress in her first year of preschool.  She came home with a “report card” the day before so we could see how she had been assessed.  She received all Ms and Ps, which stands for “Mastered” or “Progressing.”  I, of course, zeroed in on...

Home Improvement?

Mike is the “project guy” in our house. I freely admit I contribute little to the effort. He’s good at it, generally knows what he’s doing, and the outcome is always positive. The same cannot be said for me. Despite, this, I decided it was time to give the nursery a makeover. We never...

Visit Daddy at Work Day

Last Friday, I took the kids in to meet Mike at work. He had fun showing them off, they had fun running amuck through the cubicles, and I had fun eating lunch at Chipotle afterwards. Note: this is not to say that I didn’t enjoy meeting Mike’s co-workers — they were very nice and...

Wendy’s Big Adventure

Wendy experienced another milestone in her young life … her first sleepover! She & Sam have spent the night with relatives, but this is the first time she spent the night at a friend’s house.  Yesterday, after preschool, I dropped her off at the Buttemeres, so she could spend the night with her friend...

I get by with a little help from my friends

Tuesday March 4, 2008

One of the reasons our transition to a party of five has gone so well is that our friends have been overwhelmingly generous in bringing us food. And since I’m not one to say no to a free meal, we have gratefully accepted *many* meals. I am blessed to be part of many great...

Who’s Your Daddy?

Adam is definitely one of the easier babies, but even he has fussy days. Sometimes I get tired of soothing, feeding, changing him and I long for a little me time. And sometimes I get a little self-righteous, thinking, “Why do I have to do all the work? Why doesn’t anyone ever give me...

Six Weeks … and we have a smile!

Adam now six weeks and doing great. He’s not quite as comatose as he started, but still sleeps lengthy portions of the day. The afternoons and evenings have become a little more fussy, but usually he will settle if he is held via arms, sling, or carrier. His right eye is still a little...

Umbilical Hernia

Although we still have a couple of weeks before we go back to the doctor, there is no doubt he has an umbilical hernia. It’s pretty weird to look at, so I am curious what the doctor will say. Typically surgery isn’t needed and it resolves on it’s own, so I guess we’ll find...
