Little Things

Today on the way to preschool/work, Skyler asked me “Mommy, when we get close to preschool, can you look at me in the mirror and smile like you did that one time when I wasn’t being happy?” I immediately smiled and agreed, and then just smiled to myself thinking about her simple request. I wouldn’t …

Happy Holidays

I’m a sap, I love the holidays. The decorations, the music, the traditions, the family time, the food, the memories. But oddly, despite my enjoyment of Thanksgiving and Christmas, I’m not the kind of person that goes overboard on Christmas decorations, Black Friday shopping for the best deals, or spending a fortune on gifts for …

Moments of Fall

So, I guess it’s still Fall, and will be till December 22nd! That means I have a Fall birthday this year, and actually, most of December is in Fall this year…what’s up with that? This seems so odd to me… Anyway, we’ve been busy, in a good way, and I don’t really have a lot …

Meh.

Getting stuck at home for too many days out of a week takes it’s toll on my well-being like not many other things in life. Over Thanksgiving break, Skyler caught some bug that has had her puking on and off since Thanksgiving night, and with that long weekend at home and now two additional days …

Almost Paradise

We leave for Florida in less than four days. My excitement and anticipation has become that usual mix of anxiousness and fear I get now that I’m a parent and we’re leaving our baby behind for a few days. The awful “what-ifs” run through my mind when I think about flying in an airplane, and …

Taking Care

It is the picture of Daddy-Daughter love: He is resting his head on her polka dot pillow, covered in her plush fleece butterfly blanket. She brings him a small stuffed bunny rabbit from her room, tucks it under the covers next to him, and rubs his head lightly with her little hand. She turns to …

Falling

Is October one of my new favorite months? The leaves are changing into gorgeous colors, the air is mild with windows open, butternut and acorn squash are abundant, and the Chiefs are finally lookin’ good. The only thing not to like are those extra chilly mornings that remind me of the coming Winter, which I …

Earning It

Florida vacation is just around the corner. Twenty days to be exact. And while I’ve been looking forward to it for the last few months, I haven’t been able to really daydream about it lately and focus on the reality of it’s approach like I’ve done for many past vacations, mainly because work is super …

Freakin’ Love

When we tell Skyler we love her, we often say it our favorite and slightly inappropriate way: “I freakin’ love you!” Yeah, “freakin’” is substitute slang for a not-so-nice word that doesn’t even make sense to say there, but it’s all about the intensity. Freakin’ love is strong, enthusiastic, unstoppable, and just plain silly. Even …

Sandwiches

This post has pretty much nothing to do with food. But it’s the only word I could come up with to sort of tie together all the random things I’m about to write. These are the hardest posts to title. So, “sandwiches” it is. Hopefully it will make sense when I’m done typing. The week …
