Parenting Books


I am addicted. I have read so many parenting books that I can’t even keep them all in my library. I read one after another after another and swear that each one will be the ONE. Perhaps I should have my Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Kindle accounts revoked? I will read any […]

Optical Illusions


I suddenly have so many thoughts swirling through my head… As those of you who read here as regularly as I write… not…know that summer often brings a overwhelming amount of consideration to all things Max. I don’t know if it is simply an inevitable mathematical result because Sophie is […]

Ok… Nevermind


The title belongs to Hun who chided me a bit for whining yesterday.  As soon as I posted yesterday’s entry, Camp called to tell me that Max climbed to the top of the rock wall, rang the bell and then walked across a log plank… all by himself.  The camp […]

And the band played on…


A few days late with this post, but late is kind of my thing… We attended the Campbell School Band/Chorus/Orchestra concert last Thursday night and I cannot imagine a better evening.  Even though the band played three songs which all had only three notes and therefore sounded exactly the same, […]

me, me, me and a blog…


For years, I have written this blog, sometimes regularly, sometimes not so much… In fact, I was surprised to find out that this nonsense has been going on for about five years.  I write when I have nothing else to do or when I have too much to do, but […]
