A Tessie Cold
Last week Tessie had a cold. It wasn't a bad cold.  She didn't have a fever.  She'd have a few coughing fits a day, but they weren't bad and her nose was runny but not particularly stuffy.  She could suck on her thumb and still breath. The first night the a...

Molly Loves You and Other Amazing Words
Sunday night, Maggie had already gone to bed when Sadie's bedtime rolled around, but she hadn't quite fallen asleep yet.  She was wrapped up in a quilt when she looked at me and said "Molly loves you." Molly is her favorite Bubble Guppy and "Molly loves you...

Finally Family Fun Night
For most of the last decade, Paul was gone on Friday and Saturday nights.  Before Sadie was born he worked 48 and 72 hour shifts at a group home, which meant sometimes parts of weekends were free, but often times he was gone. After that he began grad school...

The Bits of Advice I Have Left to Give: Mermaid Soap
Before I had kids I had the very common problem of knowing all there was to know about raising children.   Once I had two, when they were still both very small, but big enough to be easier than they were when they were tiny, I knew even more and had enough ...

A Rant, An Update, and that time I almost lost my mind
I planned on writing an update the night after we got back from the appointment with Tessie's pulmonologist, but I couldn't.  I was too angry (not at her doctor).  It would have been a rant and besides, I didn't have anything to tell you. So I held off, hop...

Super Tessie Update
I realized at around 3:30 this afternoon that it was unlikely that we were going to hear from the neurology office today and that we were heading into the weekend without any answers. And so, sounding truly pathetic, I called and left a message for her pedi...
