My dear Calamity A, You’re four. The Threenager is gone, and I’m finding it hard to believe. I’m not one for nostalgia, most of the time, but I can’t stop myself from reminiscing back to those early weeks and months, when you were the tiniest, fiercest thing we had ever seen. You still are. Did […]
Okay, I’m sorry. I’m sorry things got crazy enough this summer that I abandoned whoever is still reading my poor neglected blog during the month of August…and part of September. Never fear, though! I am back and have a LOT to say. Well, I’m sure I have something to say, but I’m not going to […]
