Back to School

Finally, the big day arrived on Tuesday.   I’m not sure who was more excited — the kids, or me. 🙂 Last year I was a tad misty-eyed, sending my first born off on the big yellow bus, but I didn’t have that same trepidation this year with my new kindergartner. The 1st...

Super Sam Turns 5

Our oldest son/middle child turned a year older yesterday — how in the world did he get to be 5?!?  Sam is my strong-willed kid and can turn a good situation sour faster than I can bat an eye.  Though he can be obstinate and challenging, he is also such a tender and sweet...

This week marks Wendy’s last week as a kindergartner.  To prepare the students for first grade, they got to visit a real live first grade classroom.  Wendy was beyond excited to see her neighborhood friend H. in the class.  The kindergartners got paired up with a 1st grade buddy, who showed them around the...

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,...

12 Years of Bledded Wiss

This weekend marked our 12 year anniversary.  We celebrated by having a yard sale and convincing some friends to keep the kids (overnight!). Once we were footloose and fancy free, we cashed in on two Groupons I recently scored.   Without telling Mike our destination, I directed him into Clarendon where we found street parking. ...

The Big Boy Bed

We bought a “big boy” bed for A a few weeks back and talked up how exciting it was to have a new bed.  He was pretty jazzed about it, until it was time to sleep, then he wanted to go back to his “kib” (crib).   Since his tiny bedroom is quite crowded with...

Farewell, Old Friend

Today has been a low-key, kick it around the house, kind of day.  While we were in the backyard this morning, I reminded Mike that we should take a picture of his motorcycle so we could list it on Craigslist.  He agreed, and so we did. His bike is a 1998 Honda Hawk GT...

What we’ve been up to

About two weeks ago, Adam came down with a “touch” of croup.  He’d been coughing and had a bad night with the barking cough that led to time in the bathroom with the shower running and a call to the night nurse.  Thankfully, his coughing subsided and we avoided a 2am trip to the...

Ringing in the New Year with a Fizz, Stomp and a Bang

Our New Years was completely boring.  We did not take our usual trip to the little cabin in the big woods and we did not make any plans at home. Mike bought some sparkling cider for the kids and we let them have some in celebration, around 9pm. Then he and...
