I just don't even have words

November 10, 2010



I was home with Benjamin and his phlegm today. I took the opportunity to catch up on folding and distributing laundry about the house… so up the stairs we went. First stop, Benjamin’s room.

Deconstructing a Head Cold

August 3, 2010



It is an absolute given that whenever any of the kids gets some sort of germ I will have it next.  There is no need to fight it, no need to be all, “Oh, I’m sure you’ll be fine..”  No, I won’t.  Like now. Benjamin came home last week with a head cold.  Thus two […]
