Adoring Eyes

Reagan with sunglasses

Part of Perfect Moment Mondays… You know what’s amazing? No matter how we see ourselves, our children only see what they want to believe about us. No one believes we are more beautiful, more amazing or more intelligent than our kids. Well, at least until they become teenagers. Though I know this to be true […]

Rushing Easter

Easter egg haul

Part of Perfect Moment Mondays… We’re adjusting to Daddy being gone a lot again, after three years of having him home with us. But, this would be the first holiday we’ve navigated around his schedule. This meant he had to miss the annual Family BBQ and Easter Egg Hunt at preschool at which Reagan filled […]

Gettin’ Ready to Ride! Help Me Kick Cancer’s Bottom!

St. Jude Trike-A-Thon 2010

This will be my second year riding in the St. Jude Trike-A-Thon to raise money for pediatric cancer research. Last year I had to ride the Flintstone-style, foot-powered car to make it around the track, but, look out, cause this year I’m going all trike! That’s right. It’s gonna be full-on NASCAR when that checkered […]

When Old Becomes New Again

Old-fashioned Easter dress

Part of Perfect Moment Mondays… I’m not a saver. In fact, I’ve thrown plenty of things out that I come to regret later. Whether this is a symptom of just always being on the move and living in mostly modest square footage, or because I like being free of things after growing up in a […]

Parenting the Love and Logic Way

strong-willed child

It seems Danny and I have been misguided in thinking our newly-turned-four-year-old has been going through a “phase” these past two years. What we thought was just a stubborn streak that would subside with age, has only grown stronger. And the stronger it gets, the more we feel like we’re on the losing side of […]

An Ode to Hello Kitty

Sleep Chart

When you’re all of four-years-old, there is no such thing as too early to rise and shine. And, why is it that Mom and Dad get to sleep together when in my room all alone I’m expected to supine? So, you sneak into our room in the middle of the night, when you know we […]

From Pitocin to Party Princess: Reagan Turns Four

Baby Bird 051

Part of Perfect Moment Mondays… It was the wee hours of a cold Fat Tuesday morning in St. Louis when my water broke. Danny, a Louisiana boy, had every hope this meant we were going to have a Mardi Gras baby. But, 20 hours later of walking the hospital halls, waiting for labor to begin, […]

Valentine by Special Delivery

Valentine candy hearts

Part of Perfect Moment Mondays… They say that years three and four for children are known as the “magical years.” For sure, Reagan’s third year has been magical to witness. Holidays have only just started to hold significance, and if not for Valentine’s Day, we’d still be celebrating Christmas. Though our tree has been down […]
