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

What are little boys made of?

I know the saying goes “Frogs and snails and puppy dog tails.”  But our modern version seems to be a little different.

Around here, little boys are made more of legos, video games and FIREWORKS!

This year even Jonah spent $10 of his own money on a big pack them.


They seem to never be too old or too young to be obsessed with fireworks.
