Having a little girl’s ears pierced

People have many different ideas about when to pierce little girls’ ears. I have several friends who have had their infant daughters’ ears pierced, and others who will make their daughters wait until a certain age. I got my ears pierced for the first time five years ago. That’s right, for most of my life [...]

Time to carve the pumpkin!

There are lots of families who carve grand, elaborate pumpkins this time of year. People download stencils and painstakingly scrape away at the pumpkin’s flesh to create cats, monsters, ghosts, or lovely fall trees. Yeah, we stick to the basics. Little guys on the table, big girls on chairs (much to their distress. Audrey really [...]

Pumpkin Picking

We love going to the pumpkin patch every October. Last year, Joel was just a little guy: But this year, he really enjoyed himself! We started out with a hayride, which everyone loved. Except Rich, who is allergic to hay, and got a hive on his wrist. Which happens every year. But he’s a good [...]

It wasn’t my fault this time

This evening, after Joel and Sydney were in bed, Audrey told me that one of her molars was loose. In our house, loose teeth are no longer a big exciting piece of news. Instead, I start dreading the four-stanza poem I’m going to have to write from the tooth fairy. And we all remember the [...]

Rainy day craft

Georgia and Sydney were getting a little stir-crazy on this rainy day off. With Audrey at a friend’s house and Joel napping, a craft was in order. I headed to my favorite site for craft inspiration, No Time for Flashcards, and found this cute idea. Now what to do? Looking for something to do? How [...]

Who wants another post about sick kids?

Sick, sick, sick. Do you want the long version or the short version? OK, short it is. My kids have been so sick this winter that we have not all been to church together in 5 weeks! And one gross detail, just for fun…One of my angels threw up in my mom’s jacuzzi tub last [...]

Georgia just had her 6-year checkup at the pediatrician’s office, and while she was there she had her vision checked. I am always curious when my kids have their eyes checked, because my vision is terrible. I literally cannot see the big “E” on the chart at the eye doctor’s office. I remember the day [...]
