Aromatherapy
I went grocery shopping with Lily on Saturday.  Lily likes grocery shopping.  She gets to pick out her racecar(t) in red or blue and she sits somewhat snuggly, her legs looking long and too sharply angled as she sits diagonally across the front seat, but co...

Mischief Managed
Emma has officially entered her typical teenage years.  She's now spending most of her free time with friends, and has started asking for money between allowances. I
knew it was coming.  I just didn't expect it to be so sudden.  And
honestly...I'm happy f...

Just a Lil Walk V
This is the fifth "walk" for the Walter family.  Last year was the first time we did it without Leslie.  And probably I was a little too scattered to give the walk all my attention, but I think I can be forgiven.  This year, I have a redesigned logo, a tshi...

No Matter What
I was drying Lily’s hair after her bath. The drying of Lily’s hair takes place on my bed in my bedroom. She rests in the basket of my legs and watches the Wiggles while I dry and groom her hair, drawing out thick locks of hair like wet silk and brushing i...
I was drying Lily's hair after her bath. The drying of Lily's hair takes place on my bed in my bedroom. She rests in the basket of my legs and watches the Wiggles while I dry and groom her hair, drawing out thick locks of hair like wet silk and brushing it smooth as it dries.

Weekend Update
The tattoo guy hadn't contacted me by Thursday of this past week, so I figured I'd email him.  It's been a little over two weeks since we met and sat down to go over all the ideas...themes...features...look...of what I want him to do for me.  He said he's b...

Inevitability
I'm antsy.  Matrix is on in the background.  Lily is asleep.  Emma is showering.  I'm on the treadmill wondering what I should write about.  If anything.  This.  This is what I came up with. My car sucks in the snow.  I slid around a little bit in it last w...

Three Short Tales
Emma and I watch Adventure Time.  I love that show.  There's so much that kids miss that adults can enjoy about it.  It can be a sweeping mythic epic, or just a couple friends having adventures, and it adapts to the viewer. The reason I bring it up is becau...
Emma and I watch Adventure Time. I love that show. There's so much that kids miss that adults can enjoy about it. It can be a sweeping mythic epic, or just a couple friends having adventures, and it adapts to the viewer. The reason I bring it up is because there is one type of episode that they ...

Long Time no See
Anytime I don't blog for a while I look back at it and think...god, there's so much to catch up on.  And strangely, or maybe completely normally...that muchness stops me from blogging anything at all...which feeds itself and etc etc. So this is a quick catc...

The Pocket-watch
This will probably be the only blog post I'll ever write where I use a trigger warning.  When I get to the part of the post that is hard to read, I'll warn you.  I'll even add "****" to mark where you can skip and where you can start again.  Just skip it ...
This will probably be the only blog post I'll ever write where I use a trigger warning. When I get to the part of the post that is hard to read, I'll warn you. I'll even add "******" to mark where you can skip and where you can start again. Just skip it if you are worried.

Failure to Communicate
Emma and I were eating our breakfast yesterday and I told her I was thinking about "firing" my tattoo artist. "Why?" "Because he keeps missing his deadlines and I always have to contact him after the fact to find out.  I want him to contact me!"  And that r...

Parent/Teacher Conference
Another one of those strangely emotional nights for me.  Last quarter Emma had her worst quarter ever scholastically  Basically cratered.  I had decided at the beginning of this school year to approach this year with a "Your grade, your responsibility" phil...

Boss! Boss! The Plane! The Plane!
Places everyone, places! Tattoo (see what I did there?  no?  so young...so so young).  I'm here to talk to you about the tattoo.  I don't have tattoos.  By the time I decided there was something I was passionate enough about in order to justify using perman...
