Reader of the Month

Reader of the Month

Okay, friends.  It is April 1, which means that it is time for a new Reader of the Month!  Allow me to introduce you to Christina. I have known who Christina is because she comments almost every day on my blogs.  But I actually “met” her through Twitter because she follows me and I now follow her.  I love getting to know my blog readers that way!  Christina has a beautiful family and I often check out her blog just to see what they are up to.  If you’ve got…

The Part Before the Nervous Breakdown

The Part Before the Nervous Breakdown

Let’s take a moment to dive into the inner sanctums of my emotional being right now and try to understand me for a minute. When I get stressed out, I get tired. When I get tired, I get easily annoyed. When I get easily annoyed, I begin to look for things to be mad at. When I look for things to be mad at, I find them. When I find them, I get mad. When I get mad, I fight with Chris. Ergo, because I am stressed out, I have…

Survival Guide: Traveling with a Baby

Survival Guide:  Traveling with a Baby

In the past few months, we have been traveling more than ever.  But what made us certified professional baby travelers was the 22 hour drive from Connecticut to Florida.  Followed by a six hour drive to Atlanta only two weeks later.  Bean isn’t perfect when he travels, but who is?  He gets fidgety and fussy, but for the most part we know when that’s coming and we can plan ahead.  I have learned that this is the most any parents can hope for when traveling with a baby.  You may…

Zero to Sixty really, really fast.

Zero to Sixty really, really fast.

All day on Saturday I got to play with one of the coolest toys I have ever experienced, all 265 horsepower of it.  I want to take this time to welcome and introduce the PORSCHE CAYMAN to The Man Cave, just know that you can come back anytime! Really.  Anytime. Words can’t even describe the experience.  You know in your car (and my car for that matter) when you pull out in front of someone and you step on the pedal but it only has so much juice.  Well in…

Lightsabers and Daddys

Lightsabers and Daddys

These are the times when I should put down the camera and intervene for the benefit of my child. I mean, the kid did just lose half his tooth.  Shouldn’t I feel the need to protect his eyes now more than ever? “Yes, that’s my baby over there.  The blind one with the missing front tooth.” But just about the time I realized I should step in as the adult in the situation… Chris stabbed Bean in the guts and he died a very slow, dramatic death. And then they…

Toasting the Bride

Toasting the Bride

On Saturday night after my cousin’s Eagle Scout ceremony, my aunt and uncle threw my sister and her fiance a wedding shower.  It was a lot of fun. But throughout the whole evening, I was reminded that their wedding is in exactly one month.  And you know what that means, don’t you? It means that I have to get thin, tan, and taller in exactly 30 days. But more than those things, it means that I have to give the toast at the wedding reception in 30 days. There are…

10 Monfs Old and Already in Need of a Toof Fairy

10 Monfs Old and Already in Need of a Toof Fairy

This weekend while we were living it up Eagle Scout style with my family, Bean had a little…mishap.  He was hanging out in the Man Cave at my aunt and uncle’s house, just hanging with the guys, watching a little March Madness.  This particular Man Cave was a lot nicer than Chris’ Man Cave in Connecticut and it came equipped with its own beautiful bar. Chris was standing at the bar and Bean was walking while holding on to the footrail at the bottom of the bar. And as Bean…

A Family Affair

A Family Affair

This past weekend, Chris, Bean and I rode to Atlanta with my parents for two very important events.  On Saturday morning, my cousin, Jake, had his Eagle Scout ceremony and then later that day was a bridal shower for my sister.  I was so excited to go because all the festivities were at my Aunt Joan and Uncle Tim’s house.  And I love my Aunt Joan and Uncle Tim! This is my Uncle Tim.  He is my mom’s brother.  When I was little, he was my wild and crazy Uncle…

The Best Time for a Chat

The Best Time for a Chat

Bean, I’d like to talk to you for a minute about your attitude this week.  Is this a good time for you? ZZzzzz…. Okay, good.  Bean, your Dad and I are becoming very frustrated with your attitude lately.  This whole screaming as if you were dying just because you want a Cheerio instead of a Puff has got to stop.  Not only does it scared the dogs and hurt my ears, it makes your Daddy want to give you to Goodwill.  And you don’t want to be donated to Goodwill,…
