Skelebration At Redmoon! The Last Weekend!

fish and suzy

Friends, over the weekend Skelebration was skelebrated by my children. (Remember way back to last week when I talked about touring the facility? Which sounds way more important that it ought?) This magical, seasonal, and otherworldly playground is a choose-your-own adventure of the spookiest kind- inside a theatre company’s lofty (and tricked out!) warehouse. And seriously. The theatrical explosion that is Redmoon has done it again. How they’ve managed to reinvent something which blew the minds straight outta the skulls {Read More}

That Time I Gouged Out My Eye: A Wedding Story.

Jasper

Last weekend, I had a simply awesome time helping my youngest sister pick out a gorgeous wedding dress with friends, my other two sisters, and my Mom. But this post is not about that. Jasper took his very first flight as well, and was a model citizen of the sky. This post is not about that, either.

As a member of the Stream Team, I’m gaga for the latest programming curated by Netflix- and only a teensy bit excited to share it with you guys. Where teensy=crazy-big. That said, all thoughts, opinions, and borderline-embarrassing love of The Mighty Ducks are my own. *** Parents live for milestones, right? Of COURSE. People don’t invest in baby books and shoe-bronzin’ because it sounds sorta fun, now do they? NO. It’s because they’re compelled. Like a compulsion. Like a never-ending, {Read More}

10 Months, Kid.

jasper 10 months

Hey there, 10 month-old. Fun factoid, Jasper: Did you know that 10 months is heart-stoppingly close to the number 12? As in months? As in A YEAR? You probably did know that, because you’re downright brilliant and advanced and kind of a remarkable all-around individual of the short-ish persuasion. But if I’m being honest with myself (which is usually the first thing to go right out the ol’ window when the topic of my children’s ages n’ stages comes up), {Read More}
