Summer of her life
While it hasn't been my ideal summer: it went too fast and I didn't get to spend all that time with the girls, they've had a wonderful 10 weeks. It started with their ballet recital . Samantha and Al starred as Annie and Daddy Warbucks! The next week follow...

Stay-cation Day 4: San Francisco
We decided to take a break from driving on Wednesday and stuck around home. I had an unplanned doctor's appointment in San Jose so the kids and Al rented a movie and hung around the house. We figured we needed our endurance for Thursday--our walking legs fo...

Stay-cation: Day 2--Santa Cruz
We extend our coastal theme in Day 2 with a trip to Santa Cruz. We headed to Wilder Ranch. They have amazing bike trails, but we decided to use our legs. We have two new bike riders and didn't feel they were ready for trail riding just yet. Wilder Ranch is ...

Blood draws suck, especially when you're 9!
Samantha had a blood draw today. We picked her up from camp and handed her a full water bottle with the instructions to drink. She had the 30 minute drive to the lab to get in as much as she could. Samantha's never been a goo...

Chronic bronchitis--when parents and pediatrician are desperate.
Today we had another follow up with the pediatrician to deal with Samantha's chronic bronchitis. He feels as helpless as I do. He was looking over her chart and recognized that there is a pattern as to when the bronchitis sho...

Do you get a blood draw when your child has been sick the week before?
We have a mid-year checkup with our pediatrician the first week in July and I need to have blood draws done before then. With Samantha on a considerable amount of prednisone and inhaled steroids, as well as antibiotics, I beg...

Mommy guilt
It's been a busy summer for the kids. They've been to a week of theatre camp, a week of swim lessons, a week out with our stay-cation, two weeks of vacation bible school, and the last three weeks are filled with ballet classes. At work, I opted for the newl...

Stay-cation: Day 1 Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea
Samantha on the fireman's pole We did it, we did our first stay-cation and survived. The kids loved it and we loved it. We got to sleep in our own beds, made a picnic lunch every day. We even spoiled the kids with Capri Suns and chips and they were content,...

The girls are out of school . . . I should be saying "Yipee", but as a working mother I find it challenging. They've been too sedentary thus far and I don't like it. Although I have to admit: my oldest has bronchitis and it's been super windy (25 mph) for d...
