Sam the Builder

Sam is a mechanically minded boy.  I marvel at how different he is from his sister.    I hate to generalize about these kinds of stereotypes, but he clearly sees the world from a different lens than her.  He always wants to know how things work and asks insightful questions to understand the working principle...

Mudders Day

I better get my Mother’s Day re-cap in before we hit Father’s Day. I had a lovely Mother’s Day thanks to a wonderful hubby and mostly wonderful kids (the kids are wonderful, they just have more moments of un-wonderfulness than their dad).    I generally don’t expect a lot from Mother’s Day — a chance...

Put a Poem in Your Pocket Day

Apparently today is National “Put a Poem in Your Pocket Day“, a day whose significance is being celebrated at our kids’ elementary school.    They are supposed to carry a poem in their pocket at school — there will be “poem police” who can issue tickets if the kids don’t have one (no word on...

Halloween/Fall Decor

We really don’t play up Halloween at our house and we certainly don’t have our yard decorated with bones and skeletons and scary things.  I’m fine with that, but this year, Wendy & Sam decided we were sadly lacking in festive decor.   So they added a few of their own special touches and I...

End of Preschool

Times is flying by and I’m only just now getting around to this post.   Sam’ preschool ended right before the Memorial Day Weekend.  It’s hard to believe his preschool tenure is over and in a few short months he will be starting kindergarten. He had a great time in preschool and had two wonderful,...

Aspirations

On the way to church today, 4yo Sam told us that when he grew up, he wanted to be (and I quote):  “A race car driver, a jet plane pilot, a tow truck driver, and a daddy.   Oh, and I wanna drive trains too.” We were amused.   I was doubly amused when he came...
