What’s a parent to do when WE get sick?

It’s inevitable, someday mom and dad will come down with a cold and then what? Actually this happened last week. First Christi got something, and then passed it to me. We were worried about passing it to Lily, but there isn’t much a parent can do; is there? Yes, we washed our hands often and […]

It’s quiet, to quiet without anyone home.

It sure is quiet around this house without my girls. They’ve gone away for the weekend and I’m left to entertain the cats, do a few household items, and relax. This is the second time I’ve been away from my girls since Lily has been born and it’s weird. I get so use to being […]
