Has it really been a month?

Ohmigosh – has it really been a month since I updated Liam’s Blog?  Wow.  Time flies when you’re having Holidays! Let’s see – what happened? I guess there were really two big blog-worthy events: Christmas! We hit Aunt Eva & Uncle George’s for Christmas Eve.  Grandpa was there, too, and Liam had a blast with…

Perspective

I just shamelessly stole this from a buddy’s blog, because it’s right on the money. Not that I’ve had this problem, necessarily…but, sometimes it’s “there”. Hovering. And, for what it’s worth, the article does not address the unique stresses of Working Moms, whom I think are rockstars. Just for the record. Regardless of your place…

The chip and the block…

So, continuing from my last post… Last night they watched “Meet the Robinsons“ for the first time, and BOTH of them were enthralled. Afterwards, Liam was very excited to tell me that “Wewis was fwying in a spaceshit!” (With emphasis on the last syllable – totally innocent, and hilarious!) Now, look at these profiles below….

A Good Day for Froggy Boots

It POURED all last night, and most of this morning. We had a break around mid-day, so we dashed out to the store for a few things. When we got home, I saw that we have “Lake O’Laughlin” in our front yard. It’s been mild…almost 70 today… …so we ran into the house, changed quickly,…

Better late than never… Liam and Santa, 2006 (Liam was 8 months) Liam and Santa 2007Liam was 20 months Liam and Santa 2008(Liam is 32 months…or two and two thirds, because Brian insisted that we stop counting in…

I call them "Crêpes Internationales de Plaisir"…

It’s early Sunday morning. Brian is sleeping in, and Liam and I are in the kitchen, all excited to make pancakes! He climbs up on his chair to watch, and can hardly stand the wait – “Oh, boy, Mama – cancakes! Nummies!” In goes the flour, the baking powder, the cinnamon. Crack goes the egg….

Ho, Ho, Ho!

Today was the day of our annual trek with Uncle Robert to MacArthur Center in Downtown Norfolk for the “Photo with Santa”. Liam has been looking forward to this all week, and the fact that the theme was The Polar Express was the cherry on the sundae of his happiness. All on his own, with…

I’m not ready. Nope – not ready.

I am not ready for Liam to give up naps. I’m not. I NEED that time in the middle of the day to get my act together, get some cleaning done, pay bills, return calls or just take a break…depending on what the morning held. I am old. Heck – sometimes I need a nap!…
