The Annual Chuck E Cheese Visit (Day 24)

The Annual Chuck E Cheese Visit (Day 24)

Once a year my aunt, cousin and her daughter visit for a few days.  During that visit we take our annual visit to Chuck E Cheese.  Your read that right.  We only venture through the doors of chaos, tokens, crappy prizes, so-so pizza and over-stimulation once per year. For me, it is […]

This afternoon we headed to my mom & stepdad’s house with six kiddos in tow.  My parents did an Easter egg hunt with da boyz and three of their cousins, all of the female variety.  It was so much fun to watch the little bitty ones try and figure out […]

A New Old Dress Size (Day 18)

This evening we went shopping.  I was woefully behind on the Easter preparations. It is one of the few times a year I make everyone dress up, coordinate and get a picture taken.  Actually, I think it is the only time a year. Off to the mall we went.  The good […]

I Still Like You (Day 17)

Today was a rough day.  A lot of things went wrong in the D household.  There was difficult news to swallow.  There were some poorly behaved boyz.  There was an involved trek to Home Depot for next week’s DIY staycation that ended in a Nathan sensory meltdown.  Then we arrived […]

Boyz Wild in the Woods (Day 16)

Boyz Wild in the Woods (Day 16)

We moved into our house last fall.  We used to live in town, with a small backyard and right on a major roadway.  If the boyz were to play outside, it was highly supervised in order to keep them safe.  So when we moved to the new house on 2 […]

A Happy Boy and His Dog (Day 14)

Today it hit 70 here in upstate New York.  When it came time to get ready for the school bus that picks Nate up for afternoon Pre-K, he excitedly headed into the mudroom.  Sneakers were eagerly put on.  Jackets were left on their hooks.  He grabbed his backpack.  Then surprisingly he eagerly […]
