Toddler Bras?!? Do You Buy Her Four Loko and Condoms, Too?

At first I thought I must be confused.  I must be imagining things. My head swivels as I take in all of the other merchandise around me. Nope.  Definitley the toddler section. Footed pajamas with teddybears, cotton underwear with Snow White, little ankle socks with bows. Yup.  Sweet little girl things. So what in the [...]

Things Little Boys Do

I always wondered whether these things really happened.  Or at the very least, how they happened. Then, suddenly, my first-born son became a 3-year-old boy. And now I see that these things really do happen. I am still not sure how they happen. ps.  If my landlord happens to be reading this, don’t worry, I [...]

Desayuno Dancing…

Or Breakfast Baile.  Somehow this title is only working in Spanglish. C’mon.  Admit it.  I know we aren’t the only ones whose breakfast (and dinner) often turns into a dance party.

Halloween Candy = Already Gone

Or at least, the good stuff is. Which made me think that perhaps I should have already blogged about Halloween.  But really, it is just that the good stuff went quickly…what, with three of us eating it and all.
