An Old Town Weekend

Dear Babes, It’s already been a few weeks since our return and yet you two are still going on and on about this year’s family vacation. You’ve been very much into animals lately, so for our trip this year we figured why not headline it with one of the most famous zoos in the country, […]

Random Musings #1

I’ve spent the majority of the past two months awake and breastfeeding a restless newborn. The times I’ve been just too exhausted to read or do anything constructive (which has been almost all of the time) I’ve resorted to watching TV. A lot of it.

It was quite the arduous process […]

There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in A Shoe…

Several weeks ago it was reported that Annegret Raunigk of Germany, age 65, is expecting quadruplets. She has already 13 children (the oldest of which is 44) and 7 grandchildren. I don’t believe it is anyone’s right or business to meddle into someone’s decision to procreate. One should be entitled to have as many children as […]

A Magical Weekend

Dear Babes, We did it! Daddy and I managed to get you to Disney World for the surprise of your short little lives, and all without you suspecting a single thing!  You’ve been asking to go to Disney World for the better part of a year now, and all we ever say is “We’ll see” […]
