It goes without saying that kids grow fast.  Time flies.  One day you’re bringing them home from the hospital, the next day you’re googling “how to get ink off of the walls without stripping the paint and owing a small fortune when we move out of this place due to the super strict rental contract”.

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 […]

Wow….three weeks without internet. That felt like an eternity. The good news is we’re back up and running- I think. And we are getting settled into our new house. There is so much to share, going all the way back to Christmas! Wow, does anyone even remember December anymore?? Anyway, this is just a little […]
