Look Ma, No Training Wheels!

We love gliders (aka run bikes aka balance bikes aka pedal-less bikes).   Our older two kids have learned to ride by first learning to glide.   Now that our three year old is a master glider, I’ve been itching to get him on a “big boy bike.” Apparently, a downside of gliders is that once...

First Day of Preschool

Preschool actually started last week for young Adam, but I didn’t remember to take a picture until Monday.  And then he wouldn’t agree to pose for one, until after school. I’m glad he finally did because I :heart: this photographic evidence of what a cutie patootie he is. He is in a class for...

Back to School Busyness… and another first!

In preparation for Back to School, all three of my kiddos got haircuts.   We’ve been to different Arlington establishments, but this time I took all three to the Hair Cuttery.   My girl was thrilled to go to a “real” salon and especially loved getting her hair washed and using the bubble dryer. I was...

Did I mention?  Sam is 6!

Here it is July and I’ve completely forgotten to post about Sam’s birthday! He turned 6 during the last week of school and things were so hectic, I never got around to blogging about it.  In an effort to minimize the future therapy bill, I better make mention of our middle child’s birthday. We...

Wendy’s Good News

Since this blog is my attempt to chronicle the amusing and significant moments of our family life, I would be remiss if I didn’t share the most important milestone a person can attain. Last week, when I went to rouse the kids for school, Wendy informed me, with a shy but proud smile, that...

The perfect, snowed in activity

What do you do when you snowed in at home?   Start potty training! Overall, he’s doing great!  We have had a few accidents, of course, and I am still taking the lead in reminding him it’s time to “practice”, but he’s doing a great job. He’s even started telling me he needs to, which...

Yippee!  Adam is Three!

Sorry internet — did you think I forgot about you?  Only slightly.  I had to deal with a crashed hard drive (blech!) and then an overwhelming desire to redo my office.  I spent the better part of last week shopping at IKEA, assembling furniture, and finding a place for everything and putting it in...

Birthday Blessings

Yesterday was my thirty-somethingth birthday.  If there was ever a question as to whether I have reached my mid-thirties, I’m clearly there now. While in many ways, it was just a regular, schlep-the-kids-around kind of day, there were plenty of little touches to make the day special. For starters, there were adorable cards from...
