Baby Fever

If you’re friends with me on Facebook, you may have noticed that I’d had a bit of baby fever lately. Say what? Me?

The Baby of the Family

Ever since Aerin got sick last week, she has been super SUPER clingy to me. Before her illness, she was a pretty independent little girl. Now she needs to be held all the time — only by me, no less, and starts screaming her head off if she can’t see me. Even her two favorite […]

Eric Carle’s “A Game of Thrones”

Here’s one for all the Game of Thrones fans who also happen to be parents.
