So, this sketch surprised me. It's really about my step-mom. She passed away unexpectedly when I was about 20 years old. The story I had an interesting relationship with my step-mom. Without going into a lot of detail, I hadn't talked or seen her or my dad for at least 5 years. It was a… Continue reading The Hands That Hold
I know, I did it again. It has been quite some time since I have posted. I have been super busy. This time of year is all over the place for me and my family. On top of all the normal holiday stuff, we have 4 out of 5 birthdays to plan and prepare for… Continue reading Just Until Eternity
Yeah, this totally just happened. It is one of those moments when your glad you didn't make time to take a shower yet because you would be doing it again. Sometimes your just grateful for one shower, but to have to take two? I don't have time for that! Ever had a reflux baby? If… Continue reading Just Keep Your Mouth Closed!
Wow! It was a long eventful night last night! Really it was just a lot of work.

So, I am beginning to realize that most of the stories I have are best told by picture. I was in the kitchen being distracted and when I turned around there was sweet little Gemma. Apparently she had gotten the soap out of the bathroom and pumped it out on the fireplace. As we were… Continue reading Soap is not a toy

Hence my youngest boy William is going to have the toughest immune system ever! Babies find something and immediately it goes into there… Continue reading Where did you get that gum!?
Yup, he did it! I swear we just covered this! Well, maybe it was about a year ago. Check it out Don't Lick the Window. Apparently I was a little too specific. We were all over at my friends house yesterday. I was trying to get back home and had lost my keys (which I… Continue reading Don’t lick the car!
Seriously! Who knew that one would have to explain this! When we poop in our underwear, stop and change it! About a year ago we were visiting family and Vincent comes walking in the room, he is my oldest. This horrendous smell files the room. "Vincent," I asked, "Did you have an accident?" Now, Vincent… Continue reading No walking around poopy
