We've Moved!

Hey y'all,

I finally got our Wordpress blog up and running. Hopefully this means even more exciting blogging adventures in the future!

As of today, please bookmark our NEW site: and visit us over there from now on. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Has this ever happened to you?

Over the weekend we switched K's car seat to DH's car. Well, this morning K was supposed to go to preschool (for a glorious 3 hours!). At about 7 am DH left for work... WITHOUT switching the car seat back to my car.

Cut to a frame of me doing a dramatic movie scream in slow motion, "Noooooooooooo!"

This means all of my lofty hopes for the morning - exercise, groceries, homework for my web writing class -- are dashed. ARGH!

After I told K, "I guess we're not taking you to your playschool after all," we headed back inside and came up to my room to flop on my bed and catch a little Sesame Street. I thought a while about how we'll spend our new free time. It's a sunny day, so we'll probably head outside and play in the sandbox.

K interrupted my thoughts by snuggling up to me all of a sudden and announcing, "You are MY mommy!"

I guess there are a few million things worse than being "stranded" with your cuddly son on a beautiful fall morning.

That Which Is Expected Vs. That Which Is My Reality

I haven't had the energy to write long posts, lately, and I feel a little guilty about that, since my whole reason for doing this blog was to capture all of my adventures with Kibi before he grows up and goes off to college.

Well, in the spirit of feeling both guilty AND lazy, I'm devoting today's post to this link to a story I found on my new friend Betsy's blog. (Hi Betsy! BTW, I love your blog and your stories about your daughter, Z.)

I encourage you all to read it. Finished? Good. Now, don't you just feel better?
