Where the heck have we been? I have no good excuse. Busy. That’s gonna have to do. And right now, I was not even planning on posting. I am relaxing, finally, after cleaning the pee off my feet (my son is pretty much refusing to be potty trained. He can do it, but refuses to. Which leaves accident after accident for me to clean up. And of course he capped
Next weekend is the big shindig. A double birthday party for my friend’s 5 year old boy, E, and 2 year old darling little girl, K. But, K’s actual birthday fell on this past Saturday. T wanted to do something small for her since all of the other extended family members were busy so I volunteered to put together a little party for her and a few of the neighbor
I hate posting about something that I found on another blog. Chances are you have probably seen it. Since it is awesome, someone else has probably posted about it too.

(photo above is not from The Crispery) Months after I got married, all the cool products that I had so craved started showing up in the magazines.

I am probably just unlucky, but I am just going to pretend
I have had a lot of opportunity lately to take photographs. Sometimes it is really hard for me to pick up my camera and shoot with two kids under foot. I’m going to be honest, I have way fewer photos of M then of my first child, O. Often, it is just me and I don’t have a spotter for M when I’m trying to prop him up in silly
I don’t know what your weather has been like, but it has been absolutely gorgeous here in Southern California for the past few weeks now. In fact, it has been so gorgeous that I actually gave in when a friend of mine suggested we allow the girls to get out of school a little early last Friday and take them down to the beach for the afternoon.
