Have a holly jolly Christmas…

Nothing says Christmas like getting your picture taken with Santa.  And who on earth is jollier than St. Nick?  So, it should stand to reason that pictures with Santa Claus should be a happy event.  One reflecting joy, and excitement towards the upcoming holiday.   Or this:     So that was fun.  So yes, […]

Hey you entrepreneurs…

I might have stumbled across something brilliant.  First let me give you the back story on how I came across this idea. I finally found a place to get my hair done.  It took me about 10 months.  Which, you know, is both a long time and a short time depending on how you’re counting, what […]

It gets me every time…

I’ve gotten used to lots of things over here.  And I don’t mean “Oh, feel sorry for me.  It’s been such an adjustment”…blah, blah, blah.  No, just literally, you adjust because you have to.  Life goes on.  You figure things out, you do things a new way, and pretty soon you forget how it used […]

Board books are sooo boring…

Like most kids her age, Quinn LOVES books.  In fact, “reading” by herself is one of the things she does to stay entertained while I make lunch or clean up around the house.  That and throwing things in the toilet.  You know, both equally entertaining. She often takes her books to a large floor cushion we […]

What's with the toilet obsession?

Um, Quinn seems to be quite fascinated with the toilet these days.  Which would be awesome- if it involved sitting on it and you know, actually using it for its intended purpose.  No, her interest lies in tossing in objects and then having me fetch them out.  Ewww.  Seriously Quinn?  In the last day alone, […]

Dumb idea

I have mentioned before that closets don’t really exist here.  At least not the built in, don’t cut into the space of your room kind.  You pretty much have to buy a wardrobe or a schrank as they call it to house your clothes, shoes, and anything else you don’t want on display.  Most of […]

Defense…a letter from Quinn

In response to some of the bad publicity I’ve been getting lately (e.g. drawing on the walls and shredding the toilet paper; thanks Mom for going public with those) I wanted to submit my own version of things.  I am a delightful 16 month old who provides much joy on a daily basis.  Yes, I […]
