    Mia and Daddy do NC

    Perhaps the day I left my job, an idea dawned on me. I can travel! There’s a $49 direct fare from New Haven, CT, to Wilmington, NC (where my family is), via Avelo that it turns out is awesome. The 3-hour drive is less than ideal, and you have to pay for parking, but the […]

Ultimately they came down about 30%, but not […]

    Bryn, 18 months

    What they say is true – every child is different. While they have their similarities and get along splendidly, these girls are so different. Bryn is an independent woman. I won’t make a blanket statement like “that’s a second child for you” because my sister would get mad at me. She doesn’t need our attention […]
