    So I was sitting at the dining room table, feverishly always-sometimes-rarely-nevering, when Paul asked me if I wanted something to drink. "Please," I said distractedly, gesturing over into the kitchen. "I already have one started." I meant the half-finished cup of coffee right there on the counter, but bless that man: instead he brought a half-finished bottle of wine. The pediatrician had been kind of tenacious about it. "Have you had Charlie evaluated?" Yes, but the verdict was inconclusive. "Have you had him evaluated recently?" No, because we think…

I laughed merrily, because that is what I do when I find something gently hilarious — oh ho ho, goodness me, plans? It sounded a little like bells. Fact is, true as ever to mine own self, I don't have a plan for my blog, beyond opening its creaking hinges to post now and then when something amuses, baffles, or concerns me. Today I am amused, still laughing days after the fact, because in the sheaf of papers Ben brought home from school last week was this: "My snowman is named …

Maybe it's because this morning I had a moment of perfect happiness with Ben, watching his face uncrumple from sleep as he rubbed his eyes with his fists — such a thoroughly little-kid move that I haven't stopped smiling yet. Maybe it's because Charlie turns ten next week, his birthday coming hard on the heels of World Prematurity Day, when I spend the day thinking, I almost missed this. So many do.

    Yea, so… Snow White comes in brown at our house. That’s cool too. This was actually the second princess Lil’ J posed as but I was so excited to show off Merida that I shared those photos first. Lil’ J watched Snow White for the first time just a few months ago. She’s not her favorite princess (she’s actually kind of hard to understand) but she does like the storyline. Anything with a “mean witch” in the tale has her hooked. Snow White doesn’t have many profound quotes, but I love this line from when she’s meeting and singing to the forest animals she scared…

The results are then evaluated by a physician and your baby’s risk for several different chromosomal abnormalities is calculated. So, should you do it? There are several things to consider. 1. It may not be covered by your insurance. As an optional test, you may be footing the bill. Always check…

But, if your diapers come out of the washer looking less than perfect, just hang them up outside and let the sun do its thing. Seriously, the sun will bleach the stains right out of your diapers! 2. You might have the wrong type of washing machine. It’s true, you can wash cloth diapers in a high efficiency front loader, but you’re more apt to have issues with detergent build-up, ammonia stink, and other fun things. A good,…
