Life with these two is never dull.
This blog is dedicated to the stories that make life with my lovelies, Abby & Lauren, a thrill to live.

A Picture For Great Grandpa
Abby drew a picture for her great grandpa. She told me she wants to take it to Minnesota to give to him. And then she started to weep.... How am I going to give it to him in that little box? I told her she could take it out to the shop and hang it there, since that seems to be a common visiting station for many of us. Then she really started to cry. She cried about Great Grandma being alone. She cried about Grandpa's stuff and people just taking it. Finally she concluded that people could take his stuff, but only if Grandma says it's okay. My Abby has a big heart. And oh, the burdens she carries.
I'm a teacher by trade, writer at heart & mom in every sense of my being. I never considered writing as a profession, but after I got married and began moving around the country, I began sharing my adventures, misadventures & updates through a sort of e-mail newsletter. I found a true passion in unconventional story-telling that has followed me into motherhood.
