2010 Here We Come!

      1 Comment on 2010 Here We Come!

The kids fell asleep in the last hour of 2009, so we enjoyed the quiet to watch a movie in bed while welcoming the New Year. It was a peaceful transition to the 2010, and I hope that trend continues throughout the year. Today we were all feeling kind of stuffy and sniffly, so we lounged around most of the… Read more »

Climbing Out

Today was a milestone for Zofia and the onset of a new challenge for me. She climbed out of her crib and promptly landed head first in a basket of laundry.

Since 2008 is the year of the rat, according to the Chinese calendar, Flo hastily drew a rat for me. Maybe we should call him Rapido the Rat. (Rapido means “quick” in Spanish) Oh, and my name (Tara) spelled backwards, spells A RAT. So, this must be a sign of a good year to come. As long as we don’t… Read more »

Outing Myself Originally uploaded by PetiteFamily93 I guess the fact that I haven't gotten a good night's sleep in a week is starting to catch up with me. I looked at my kitchen today and just walked away. I opted to play games with the kids, and refrain from nagging at them to clean up their stuff all day. The… Read more »
