Field(Day) Of Dreams

  Who remembers Field Day?! I always looked forward to this day in elementary school as one of the highlights (if not the single best day) of the entire school year. An entire day of limited (or none at all!) formal instruction that was instead filled with games, prizes, picnic lunches, Popsicles, music, the works. […]

We Are Done

  With the recent and abrupt self-weaning of my 2-year-old comes yet another stark realization: I think the growing of my family is done. There’s no “think”, actually.

Mini Mean Girls

Our First Night Apart

This pic of us tonight could possibly be the last of us breastfeeding. In just a few hours I will be boarding a plane and leaving you for the next few days. I should be asleep right now, but sleep won’t come. My nerves are bad and I am feeling extremely anxious. Not so much […]
