My sweet little Super Boy is growing up so fast, it's making my head spin. He's 7-1/2 years old, and it happened in the blink of an eye, I swear. Being pregnant again is bringing back all sorts of forgotten memories of Super Boy when he was a baby, and a toddler, and a preschooler … Continue reading he’s growing up!
So, I wrote early last week about how Super Boy was diagnosed with his first sinus infection in about three years, and how I was really sad to hear he had one, given that he had ONE BIG NON-STOP sinus infection from the time he was a baby until he was about 3-1/2 years old. … Continue reading not good
My poor little boy has been sick since mid-last week. It started with a little congestion and coughing that I first noticed last Wednesday. When he woke Thursday, it seemed worse, so I kept him home. I checked his temp and it was normal, but the cough was really bothering him, so I gave him … Continue reading not again!

Me: "Oh, really? Why do you say that?"Super Boy: "Because you look more like, um, 39 or 40." … Continue reading funny kid

It started like many others -- us sleeping in and missing Church (shame on us, shame on us), waking to the sound of rain on the rooftop and making pancakes for breakfast, which we ate in our jammies around the kitchen table.

First off, yesterday: Super Girl graduated from 8th grade! Yes, folks. This means we have a high schooler on our hands. Lord … Continue reading a big day

This has been a rough week. After a busy, action-packed weekend spent in good health, Super Boy woke up Monday morning with a headache and a low fever. No other symptoms, but already the alarms were starting to go off in my head because that was exactly how Super Boy started off when he had … Continue reading a sick boy and a plea to parents
For the past two summers, I've struggled with the start of the new school year. One part of me is terribly excited for Super Boy to embark on another fun adventure of learning, apart from me and life at home, where he's becoming his own person. He loves school, loves his classmates, has a passion … Continue reading mixed emotions
Have you ever gone go-karting? If not, I highly recommend going out and finding yourself a go-kart track where you can give it a whirl. It's fun. It's really, REALLY fun. Expensive, too, at least in this neck of the woods this year. Is it due to rising gas prices? Not sure. But it was … Continue reading I felt the need for speed.
