With just a few days before the big room reveal, I thought you might want a little tease. 🙂 When we set up the nursery for #1, we bought this bed: It was white with brass fittings back in those days. It comes with a trundle, so it makes out into a very uncomfortable queen… Continue reading Just a Tease….
This blog is as much about why I never get any research done as it is about the actual research. #1 has finally become a Super Senior (year five) and as such has moved out into his own place.

To think I would say that to one of my children, out loud. It was only there briefly, the eye roll. Her 11 year… Continue reading It was bound to happen…
