I’m really excited about this, friends. It’s been a writing goal of mine this year to be published at The Huffington Post, and I’m thrilled that they decided to reprint this post I wrote last year for The Happiest Home. It’s all about holiday traditions, and why I don’t think we necessarily need to stress […]
I just love this photo of me and my firstborn walking the dock in Crystal Lake, IL in 2009. Today it’s part of my most recent post at The Happiest Home. Here’s a little snippet: From where I stood on that little island of new motherhood, it seemed like all the other moms were on a clearly […]
The kid-comparing continues (did you catch yesterday’s post?)! Here are the 8- and 9-month side-by-side photos. What do you think? Can you believe Baby Powers is 10 months today?! 8 months old and smiling… (also, just because: the girls in the same outfit and bonnet – though a few months apart, age-wise) 8 months old […]
Well, well. I’m not sure how best to follow up a blog post that went insanely viral. I’m going with the “do nothing for 2 months then post pictures of your kids that only their grandparents care to see” approach. Also these photos aren’t even recent. I do enjoy the side-by-side sibling collages but since […]
To my friends in the North: You know who you are. You woke up this morning more than a little bit giddy. You turned the page on your calendar to September and felt the first hint of a chill in the morning air (whether it was actually there or not). There’s a change in the […]
My oldest starts kindergarten this week. Since most of my clear memories of childhood start at around age five, I’ve been thinking about what she’ll remember about this year. This big day. I’m sure it won’t be the things I’m fretting over that she’ll remember. The world through her eyes is different, necessarily, than it […]
I’m only about four months behind on putting together these little photo collages, which isn’t bad as compared to some other projects I’m behind on. Since baby girl turns 6 months this weekend (WHAT.), it’s maybe now or never with these last few side-by-side comparisons. I vote now, if only so I can feel I […]
The earth never stops turning, you said on the way to school. The last day of school. Your last day of preschool. It was like you knew I would come home and write about it and so probably you should say something profound in the car on the way. So typically you, my cooperator, my […]
I have a couple of really close friends who are pregnant for the first time, and today over at The Happiest Home I wrote them a little letter. Here’s a little bit of the post: For just an instant I marveled at the vast distance between that new mom that I was and the one […]
Oh hey hi. I’ve got a little list of unrelated updates and things to click on for your reading pleasure, should you choose to follow me around the internet… …and should you not care at all about these updates, you can skim right on down to the end for some gratuitous cuteness and I’ll never […]
