It goes without saying I’m on the bad blogger list at the moment but I’m a worse Godmother! My calendar has Gwen’s birthday as today and it was yesterday. I feel awful about it! She’s been our practice baby and I could not love her more but apparently remembering her birthday is beyond me. I’m undoubtedly … More Happy Friday & (belated) Birthday Gwenie!
This weekend we checked off another item from our Fall List and went to Long Family Orchard. Danny’s sister recommended it last year and after this second visit I will officially declare it my orchard of choice. There are plenty of cider mills around but a smaller number offer U-Pick. Those that do are generally busy all the … More Long Family Orchard
We had Gwen this weekend and she’s growing up so fast. A few months ago she barely said anything, now she talks ALL the time. Sunday she barely paused for breath from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. After two years of regular visits she knows the rules and routine of the house inside and out … More Parenting Practice Part 4

The lessons learned from Gwen at (nearly) 1 hold true and I thought I’d update my observations. I know childless … More Parenting Practice Part 3
I don’t need to have children to know the worst part of parenting is potty-training. It’s an uphill battle and will occupy a lot of my weekend. For better or worse, Gwen loves to visit the bathroom but her success rate is about 1 in 20 visits. Those trips are exhausting but not the worst … More Happy Friday!
The look on her face reflects all the mischief she plans to get into now. Our borrowed baby Gwenie turned 2 this week! I can’t believe how quickly the time passes. I remember rushing to the hospital the day she was born. Traffic was horrible and GPS took us to the wrong place. I remember … More Happy Friday!
