We're Gonna Party Like It's Your Birthday


Ten years ago today, this little gentleman showed up and everything changed. I told Bob this morning that when I went into labor with him, the first thing I did was... my hair. My little step to control that which was wildly beyond my control. His entrance was loud and messy and not much has changed and I am delighted.

Having a baby was a great idea, especially since his father is ten years younger than I am and was able and willing to do so much of the heavy lifting. Bringing into the world a person who is part Mr. Rosenberg has been my best idea yet. Where once there was one of my favorite people, now there are two.

We started today with presents and balloons and chocolate chip pancakes at a weird diner. We started today with gratitude for our family and the life we have designed together. We started the day with love and coffee. We couldn't want for anything more.

Happy Birthday, Bob and Happy Baby-versary, Mr. Rosenberg. You guys are the absolute best.

A New One!


Guys! I'm part of a new parenting book collection called "True to Life Parenthood: The Only Handbook You'll Need." It's a swell collection of stories and tips and it's available in stores in Ireland, England and Australia OR on the website HERE. (You will be paying in Euros so you will feel quite cosmopolitan.) It's the perfect baby shower gift or present for the new mom in your life.

Bob and Mr. Rosenberg Took a Trip


"Mom? The Colorado trip was loads of fun. It was only the third time I've seen snow in my whole entire lifetime. We got in a snowball fight. One of the snowballs got Great Uncle Paul right in the face, all the way under his glasses. He was sort of ticked off. I don't blame hime, but I'm super glad I'm not the one who threw it."

I See His Point


"Mom! You can't eat these animal crackers."

"Why?"

"Because you eat vegan."

"Do they have dairy in them, or something?"

"No, Mom. They're animals."

Smacksy Sunday Links


How to handle difficult times.

Collect memories instead of stuff.

And dogs eating peanut butter.

Happy Sunday

Throwback... Um... Friday


Sometimes I get distracted and forget to post, like tonight when I'm sitting in the middle of a dance party and have to figure out how to post from my phone. 
Today I give you some Retro Bob and Teddy.
