Justin is a very happy kid. However, there are the moments of fake laughter and there are moments of genuine laughter. I caught a moment of the latter while we were at Universal Studios in Hollywood one night.
We were having dinner at Saddle Ranch when two musicians asked if we had any requests. GWE requested “Margaritaville” while Justin completely ignored the situation while watching an over-head television. I caught him off-guard. Enjoy!

That’s the muffin in his left hand reflected in the mirror.
One morning last week, Garrett convinced me to get him a muffin for breakfast from “Sexy Starbucks.” We’ve given this nickname to one particular Starbucks because it’s below a yoga studio and another gym that hosts spinning classes. Needless to say, it’s a very good place to do some people watching in the morning! (Especially when Garrett introduces himself to strange women with “Heyyo, Yadies!”)
I finally caved and bought him a muffin. He quietly munched on it while we headed off to school. Once we got to the school’s parking lot, Garrett unbuckled himself and came up to the front passenger seat. He then handed me his muffin so he could play with all the buttons and knobs in my car. While he played with the stereo, the lights, the sunroof, and the glove compartment – I patiently … Continue reading →
While this site is currently under re-construction, life goes on and my boys continue to do things that make me laugh (and cringe.) So, here is a short blog:
As we sat at dinner last night, I looked across the table at Justin and tried unsuccessfully to get his attention. I called his name, tapped his hand, and even shot him with the paper-wrapper from a straw. Nothing got his attention.
The more I looked at him, the more I realized that I couldn’t see him. I thought, “This reminds me of something, but I can’t remember what.” It bugged me all throughout dinner.
After putting the kids to bed, I sat on our porch and turned on the TV. I caught the last few minutes of “The Thomas Crown Affair” – and that’s when it dawned on me what Justin looked like! Do you see a similarity?

So, he CAN hear me….he just CHOOSES to ignore me….interesting……… Continue reading →

While GWE and I have a lot of things in common, going to theme parks and riding roller coasters is not one of them. She loves it. I do not. The thought of standing in line under the hot sun with a thousand screaming children (who aren’t mine) and then getting on a steel death-trap… Continue reading →

This is Garrett and his car, Lightning McQueen. Together, they like to drive to the grocery story. And by “Grocery Store,” I mean the fruit trees in the back of our yard. Garrett felt as though we were running short of grapefruits, so he decided to pick some up. Enjoy!… Continue reading →

Justin was sitting next to me while I was texting with my sister. While I cannot remember what the context of the conversation was, I do remember ending the conversation with “Where else can you bury a dead stripper?”
It’s safe to say that the conversation was innocent. If I really needed advice on where… Continue reading →

During a routine check-up, Garrett’s pediatrician suggested that we get his eyes more closely examined by an ophthalmologist. Garrett had no problem reading the eye chart with his right eye, but gave up when asked to do it again with his left eye. The doctor wasn’t sure if he was just being fussy or if… Continue reading →

Duck, Duck, DEUCE!
In my quest to locate turn-of-the-century, Railroad Grade pocket watches (my expensive hobby), I’ve begun dragging my family to flea markets. The first time we attended a flea market, we were nearly killed by gusting winds blowing items off tables and collapsing canopies. The kids were bored, hungry, and afraid of being… Continue reading →
