This is not really a post about my kid’s poop

I can barely remember where I put my phone. I sailed through my second pregnancy, blissfully unaware of what was […]

The Lessons I Never Expected Canva to Teach Me

This is not a Canva tutorial.  I muddled my way through Canva, using mostly trial and error, and I have created a total of one hopefully share-able graphic. Dan is really good at computers. I’m not. Ever since I met him, he’s taken on the role of 24 hour on call technical support person. There […]

I didn’t have dental work, I have Bell’s Palsy

“I can drink with a straw today! Hooray:)” This was the text I sent to my mom and my sister this morning. My mom called me immediately, and my sister replied, “Super awesome!!!” (A love of exclamation points runs in our family). When the baby was ten days old, I discovered I had Bell’s Palsy. […]

Weaning: It’s not you it’s me.

Here is something I wrote a couple of months ago… I want to stop but I don’t know how.  One more time becomes one more day. Another day becomes another week and I’m no closer to quitting than I was months ago. Dan is patient with me, reserving judgment or comment. But we both know […]

Race Report: Santa Barbara International Half Marathon

Race morning began at about 3:30am, I’m not sure because I don’t tell time or do much of anything that good before sunrise. See, before we changed the clocks, Sweet Pea was getting up at about 5:45.
