My inspiration for this record of my days:

“The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less” -Anna Quindlen

Head banging

Trying to get Caleb to do anything that was not his idea is at least as pointless as banging your head repeatedly against the kitchen cabinets.

I should know.  I tried both today.  I prefer the head banging.


  1. grrr....don't give yourself a headache....or maybe that would be good...then you could have a little dr pepper....ahh....sorry girl...and I love the pic of your Jonah...he is so funny!

  2. I know it's not funny but it kinda is. Is it ok that I'm laughing....a little?
