File Under: Classic

A month ago I saw adorable baby costumes at Costco and bought Xavi a little tiger outfit. Yes! Sooooo on top of things, Annie!  Good work!  One down, one to go. I was certain that Carlitos was going to want to be a dinosaur, so this way I would have two roaring little boys. Perfect. [...]

Teen Mom: Cautionary Tales or Role Models?

I can admit it: I totally found myself absorbed in last season’s ‘Teen Mom‘ and have watched several episodes of ‘16 and Pregnant‘. Me, a 29-year-old woman.   Yes, a mother myself, but one who is almost 30 and who earned her graduate degree and started her career before becoming one.  A mom who can [...]

Worth a Thousand Words

Xavi had his first little bowl of rice cereal today!  Very exciting round these parts.  (Don’t worry we videotaped all of the action.  Feel free to ask to watch it the next time you come to visit.) It was abundantly clear that he has ready for solid foods.  Perhaps he had been ready for awhile [...]

Maybe you aren’t aware, but I am quite a daredevil.  No, seriously.  I’ve gone sky diving and bungee jumping.  And I’ve worn fitted satin without Spanx.  I’m  full of adventure. [...]
