A backpack, a hammock, and a cleaning product.

A backpack, a hammock, and a cleaning product.

We were all playing outside a few weeks ago when Corban spotted it. The red kid mower, broken…and in the neighbor’s trash pile. We played with it for the last hour before its demise, and then we returned it to its resting ground. Corban still talks about that “wonderful red mower; it’s okay if it’s […]

Wee Love the Wee Ones

Wee Love the Wee Ones

Playdough gets out many fingers wiggles. Kissing hands make little ones giggle. Only cool cats rock out to fake tunes. While C & A trade (some) clothes in afternoons. I’ve reinstated independent readingin hopes that 15 minutes we’ll soon be exceeding.

We love babies.

We love babies.

Neighbor babies. Walking babies. New babies. Talking babies. Slouching babies. Never-took-a-paci-but-now-is-obsessed babies. Drooling babies. Love-expressed babies. Scratch that. He’s not a baby; he’s a preschooler!

Group shot wiggles

Group shot wiggles

Pumpkin Markering

Pumpkin Markering

I’ve been wanting to do something fall-y with my kids. And nothing screams fall more than pumpkins. While visiting an elementary school BFF over the weekend, her dad asked how many pumpkins we’d like to take home with us. And potatoes. And sweet potatoes. And acorn squash. All from his garden.

An end and a beginning

An end and a beginning

School’s out for the summer…which means I’m done babysitting for the summer! Which is a total joke for those of you who know me. Of course I’ll still be watching kids here and there. It’s in my DNA or something. (Is there a babysitter gene?) Just nothing formal or consistent, which is the exciting part! […]

While Jaeda naps…

While Jaeda naps…

…the big boys paint! And explore. Aiden always loves to explore. “AiDEN! It’s time to paint!” says bossy, task-oriented Corban to exploratory, free-spirited Aiden. Back to work.
