Creating the good old days, one day at a time.

  • Ahh the irony of it all…

    My partner has a bit of a rough hand at things that do not immediately do as she wants. For example, if she wants to open a jar of mustard and it will not open she goes, all too quickly for my liking, to the biggest “hammer” in her arsenal to get at the mustard.…

  • The satisfaction of…

    There are few things in life that are as satisfying as holding a fussing baby in your arms and seeing her transition from fussy to sleepy. It is simply beautiful in the peaceful nature of the transition. And then, once she is asleep to see a smile tease across her face as she sleeps, you…

  • A new stroller for the twins

    Today we went out and bought a stroller for our twin girls. We already have a McLaren umbrella-style stroller that we have been using on and off during the summer months. However, that stroller is really only useful in a mall or on a smooth sidewalk. The small plastic wheels dig into the trail and…

  • Smiles and love

    You have been awake for far too long in the night holding a crying baby, you are tired and you have a long day of work ahead outside of the house, you haven’t had a morning coffee yet, you are grumpy. And then you look in the crib and see two beautiful babies looking up…

  • Nursing brassiere

    The term “nursing brassiere” took on an entirely different meaning this morning. Story and Annalie are beginning to teeth and so they like to gum at things. When I looked in at Story this morning somehow she had gotten her hands on a nursing brassiere and she was gumming away at it. In fact, you…
