One Set of Rules

I try really, really hard not to have one set of rules for one of my girls and a different set for the other but sometimes it’s really hard. It’s going to be even harder when Baby #3 comes into the mix. It’s not that I play favourites or willingly give one of them more…

Birthday Season!

Birthday Season in our house is in full swing.  Poor Charlie, he is our outlier birthday.  Hopefully the next kid (or two) will have a birthday close to his so he doesn’t feel left out.  Of course he may like having his birthday far from everyone else as he won’t have to share a party…

Soccer Camp: Wednesday

Bob came into our bedroom at 2:00 am ready to talk. Right then. At 2:00 am. He wanted to talk about protocol droids (How are they different than medical droids?), raspberry lemonade (How do they squeeze out the raspberries?), and his favorite 2:00 am topic, death. “But if Meda was very old and got sick,…

Being Someone New

Have you ever drastically changed your haircut or color, gotten a new and different type of outfit for yourself, worn sexy make-up when you normally don’t wear any at all, or even ridden around in a sports car when you’re usually a minivan girl?  Have you noticed how just one simple outward change can affect your entire…
