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

Why I love 2 year olds


This guy makes me smile so many times a day!  He spent the afternoon, happy as can be, wearing only his big boys, his new “fli-flops,” and his stickers.


He’s  a willing participant in whatever schemes his siblings think up:



And he’s full of enthusiasm!  He runs, jumps, and dances all day long.  If only I could borrow a fraction of that energy!


Having a 2 year old in the house makes life a lot of fun!
