Since I’ve been working and going to school for over a year now, I have noticed myself feeling judgmental or resentful toward Jeremy as a stay at home dad. Not a lot, but on occasion, like, when the house is a wreck and Jack has done nothing but eat chips and rampage all day.  In […]

Fall semester is over, and I am presently enjoying the second of two consecutive days off. I was going to wait to blog about my fall semester until after grades have been posted, but decided that I am proud of myself regardless of grades.

Well, our family’s annual end of summer cold has descended upon us. First me, I brought it home from work I’m sure, now Jack. If I’m lucky it will skip over Jeremy and grammy.  Poor Jack is all stuffy with a low grade fever. But he’s in a very good mood overall. We’re supposed to […]

Vacation, what vacation? There is no “vacation” when you are with a one-year-old boy. I’m completely exhausted. I have sore muscles and many bruises. Fortunately, I also have a fresh batch of memories of our baby boy and many wonderful pictures of Fort Bragg, and Glass Beach. Jack was a champ for the whole trip. Although he […]

On Saturday, the three of us (my Husband, Jack, and Myself) had our first overnight adventure at Great Aunt Elaine’s house. My Husband and I knew from previous adventures how much Jack loved to come Home after a long day of socialization and stimulation. So we were a little apprehensive as we approached our first […]

My son Jack and I were strolling thru Target the other day, and we went by the toy aisle. They had one of those large cage bins full of colorful beach balls out. There was a mother with her son, a boy a few years older than Jack, and he was making a selection from […]
