Obviously, I love the side-by-side sibling comparisons. And side-by-side photo collages in general. Here are the babes at two months. Please disregard my atrocious photography with the first two kiddos – this youngest baby might get gypped in some areas (what baby book?), but her photographs will be the best by far (thank you, big-girl […]
Did you do something new today? Something that yesterday you couldn’t do, or wouldn’t do? Something that tomorrow will seem easy and unremarkable but today…today it’s a big deal. Something that took every corner of your mind, body and self to muster the strength to do? Something that felt ugly and awkward to attempt, but […]
Well, it’s about time we wrapped up this here little home-improvement series, I think. Because I am many things, but a DIY blogger is NOT one of them. And because the inhabitant of the closet nursery is now 7 weeks old. And because there is a huge bag of clothes in the closet nursery that […]
All around me I see evidence of the things I’m not doing. The dog has been barking at the back door for 20 minutes and I’m not letting her in because her paws are muddy and I can’t wipe them off because I’m holding the baby. The kids’ noses are runny and I let them […]
Wishing my fellow mamas – especially some special kindred spirits who are also in newbornland these days – a day filled with roses, chocolate, wine and kisses… …where ROSES are the kind printed on a terrycloth handmedown sleeper, size NB but not for long, destined for spit-up before 9am. …where CHOCOLATE is swiped in secret […]
I may not have enough brain power to write thoughtfully yet on the idea of having three kids – presumably ALL THE KIDS that we’re going to have – here now on the same planet. BUT, lucky for you, photo editing requires less coherentness. Coherency. That thing where your brain works. So I’ve put together […]
When my sister was born, the pediatrician came to examine her in the hospital. He held her up with one hand, naked and red, as she bellowed in protest. “Well,” he told my mom. “She’s appropriately pissed.” Meaning, of course, that her reaction was to be expected. It wasn’t pretty, it hurt to watch, but […]
Nine days ago, this happened: Eight days ago, she opened one eye to the world: Seven days ago, one sister looked into the face of another, so alike in their newborn image it was as if she was looking back in time: Six days ago, I read bedtime stories to my daughters. Plural. (No, of […]
Wow, I am so much fun a serious buzzkill this time of year. A couple of weeks ago on The Happiest Mom I wrote about how I don’t try that hard to create family traditions and today I’m back there again, this time weighing in on whether I think Santa is a big lie (yes) […]
Oh, you didn’t know? We’re putting our third baby in a closet – come along for the ride! Here’s the first post and here’s the second. Here’s something to know about putting baby in a closet: no amount of creatively cropped and artfully filtered photographs will make the space look cute in pictures. When I […]
