Whoever You Are by Mem Fox


This is by far one of my favorite children's stories. I think everyone should read this heartwarming reminder of life's simplicity.

Baby On Board?


I've never understood the rationale behind putting a "Baby On Board" sticker on one's car. The sign hangs in place as if a potential accident is not going to occur because of this warning. I just don't get it.

Look what I can grow!

I have been known to kill cacti.

Because of my tainted plant care-taking history I am very proud to announce that these flowers came from our yard. Not only did I plant them and care for them but I give myself bonus points because I even remember their name! These are stargazer lilies and they are gracing our fireplace thanks to my green thumb.

to do list

I am a list maker. It is my way of organizing chaos, and today I realized my to-do list was quite humorous.

1. Change Bella's sheets asap! (rotten milk never smells good)

2. Buy hubcap (even though I replaced one two weeks ago....I really need to stop running into curbs)

3. Clean up dog puke (this seems like a recurring theme in my life now that Bella thinks it's funny to feed the dog)
