Updates d’Instagram

Since I’ve been gone for so long, I thought it would be appropriate to do a “so this is what’s up” post full of instagram pictures. So… This is what’s up. My kid is still obsessed with The Lorax.  She’s got Lorax-dar and can tell if she sees the Lorax as a tiny little one […]

A Fabulous Foonf

Over the last two years (maybe more) I’ve spent an insane amount of time researching car seat safety.  I’ve posted about our extended rear-facing intentions before, most notably when we purchased the stunning Peg Perego Primo Viaggo Convertible. The law states that children must be kept rear-facing in the car until they are at least 20lbs […]

More Than Love

Many eons ago, I envisioned myself being a mom.  But back then, I had no idea what it would feel like to look at my child, my daughter, my life force and watch her grown. I look at this little person today, and she’s a real person.  She has likes and dislikes (namely, The Lorax and leaving the park) […]

18 Months

Yes, this post is coming at you three weeks late. Truly, I have a bag full of valid excuses for my lateness as well as my absence – some of which include, being perpetually sick with everything from the worlds worst cold EVER, pink eye, the flu (WHY?) for the better part of two months […]

Just Playing

The weather has been gorgeous the last few days. It’s about time! Arizona has been torturing us this year.  Higher temps, lasting longer, with these little teaser days where it’s beautiful. Well, I think the temps have officially broken. While most of the country is bundling up for snow (I wish!) we are finally able […]

Ariadne’s Favourite Thing – Stickers

A few months ago we realized that Ariadne was pretty taken with stickers.  It probably started when the TraderJoes cashiers got some new “fall” stickers in and started giving her a bunch at every visit.  Like she really needs an excuse to love that place more, right?? And then, after realizing how much she loved […]
