What Do You Get…

When you combine: One brown sweatsuit (size 24 mos) Several pieces of craft felt: Some tan-ish curtain tie-back cording: And a semi-cooperative 18-month old? Why, just the MOST PRECIOUS puppy dog (or, as Sam says, Say-Say) EVER And one more (for good measure) from the school party

J is in the Trombone beginning band class at Tidwell Middle School and they had their first performance tonight.

Under the Weather

Published by under Family Time,Health/fitness

It’s just a fact of life that when you have kids, you have colds. Sam and I have been fighting one for more than a week now (combined). For the most part, he’s been a real trouper, never letting his faucet-nose stop him for a minute. Then, this weekend (of course when my symptoms REALLY […]
