Remember that time I moved? (A Thankful Tuesday Post)

[caption id="attachment_6968" align="aligncenter" width="570"] print by Lily and Val via Pinterest[/caption] How many times have I written on this blog about moving? Too. Many. Times. Here's one. Here's another. Here's another. Four times in five years. And I did it one more (last! please let it be the last!) time, y'all. I ...

Thankful Tuesday: Tomatoes, Friends, Kite-Flying Wind

It's been a loooooong time since Thankful Tuesday peeked his little head out of hibernation. Consider this to be a groundhog day of sorts. Mr. Groundhog is coming out and looking for his shadow. And then going back into the warm den. I can't guarantee how long it'll be before I'm back and yapping away around here, but the ...

Thankful Tuesday: Noodle Situations, Tiger Hats

And, of course, that was the night Brooksie chose to bring out the drama by slurping a spaghetti noodle from the back of his mouth up into his nasal cavity. I’m not even making this up. There were lots of tears. He was really uncomfortable and I was ...

Thankful Tuesday: When your kid is proud of you.

Small things that I’m finding in my daily life: pleasant elderly people out for afternoon walks, people at parks who smile and say hello, the squirrel we made friends with on our picnic yesterday. Brooksie’s new scary monster sound This conversation I overheard between my boys Saturday:  August: Hi cuckoo Brooksie. ...

Thankful Tuesday: Joy in the Drudgery

Chris has been out of town for one whole day and already the boys have erupted into dramatic weeping shanigans. (Both lasting longer than 20 minutes.) I’m spent. Also, I’m thankful: For Brooksie’s intense love for his dad, even if yesterday his response to my comforting words, “Mama loves you,” were “No! ...
