ADDition and Subtraction

This is one of those collection of random thoughts.  Sorry.  I’ve got too much swirling around in the old noggin for a nice, cohesive post. 1. First and probably most significant:  I’m a big pansy and have not yet taken … Continue reading

I’ll take Seasonal Characters for $300, Alex

Recession hits the Easter Bunny (sorry for the profanity) I’ve always enjoyed holidays.  Will and I are not religious at all, but I fully embrace the secular jocularity of certain events (Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Halloween).  For years, the Easter Bunny … Continue reading

Weighting room

Stella had her 2 month checkup (and the dreaded vaccinations) today.  We knew she had been growing.  We knew she wasn’t the tiniest baby on the face of the earth (hence my c-section).  We figured she was thriving; the pediatrician … Continue reading
