    Mia, 4 Years

    Big girl alert! Since my 3.5 year post you’ve become a bit (a super small bit…) better at getting in bed, but now join us between the hours of 1 and 6 depending on when your bladder says it’s time (hurray we finally lost pull-ups at night!). In addition to that milestone, you learned to […]

    Flamme Rouge: World Tour – Fin

    It has ended. A slight delay in the final report as I catch my breath and we deal with unreliable daycare, but I digress. This thing was hard.

    2023 Year In Review

    A relatively stable one! We stayed in one home, didn’t spawn any more children, and I almost held a job through the year. Much of the year was spent in typical “parenting toddler” auto-pilot. Wake up at the crack of dawn, get them to school, work our butts off until pickup time, have dinner, put […]
