Happy Friday

A big week for the royal family. The Queens birthday and now a visit by the Obamas. With all this election business,  my admiration for President Obama grows. I’d love to know what they discussed but will focus on the glamour of the Cambridges. Kate is making me reconsider my plans for ice cream tonight, … More Happy Friday

Happy Friday

Mr. B brought Danny’s baptism items over last weekend and I’m so glad we’ll be able to use them for Lucas. Catholicism has always been more than a religion to me but part of my identity. Being mixed in the 90s wasn’t as common as it is today and being Catholic was a similarity shared … More Happy Friday

It’s Opening Day – a Detroit tradition – and although we are more of a basketball family, Lucas and I will check out the game this afternoon.

I’m seriously impressed with Cara and Matt’s old world skills and while I have no illusions about my own ability to learn them, I hope Lucas is interested in being an apprentice. As … More Good Friday

Happy Friday

It’s March Madness and we’re ready to cheer on the Spartans today (and the Irish tonight). It was another great week here. Lucas doesn’t have a schedule but he’s easy to care for since his needs are feeding, changing and holding. The latter is definitely his favorite these days and I’m often the only one … More Happy Friday

Happy Friday!

Growing up I always wanted a daughter. A few years ago I realized that was not a guarantee and I better brace myself for a son. I thought I was mentally prepared for no preference when I was pregnant but not quite. When we learned our baby was a boy, I wasn’t over the moon. … More Happy Friday!
