Austin folks: Bring the kids to this (free) show!

Austin folks: Bring the kids to this (free) show!

I got to see the dress rehearsal for “Jack and the Beanstalk”.  The kids were part of a test audience.  They were completely thrilled and (incredibly) sat still for 45 minutes, thanks to a fast pace and lots of audience participation. My good friend Nancy has put together this community theater and produced their first […]

cloth diapering and the crazed mom

cloth diapering and the crazed mom

So, I’ve mentioned the irony that Graham is on a disposable diaper box even though we cloth diaper.  I definitely don’t mean to sound like there isn’t a place for disposables.  In fact, we used disposables exclusively with Violet for good reason.  As promised, here’s one clueless crazed mom’s journey from disposable to cloth diapering: […]

Violet & Graham’s 1st slumber party

Anyone going to Europe?

Anyone going to Europe?

Because if you are, could you pick up a package of size 4 Pampers with me and Graham on it? Yes, 10 months after the last photo shoot, Proctor & Gamble finally made their decision.  According to the photographer, it’s the picture of Graham stacking a block on my head.  I wonder if I’ll ever […]

striped thumb

So apparently my thumbs are green and black striped.  Or maybe plaid.  It’s very complicated.  All I know is that after the Spring Flood ’09, some seeds in our flower bed came up, and some never appeared.  Those that did grow were in completely different places from the original site, or in a big clump […]
