Baseball with The Bear, Part Deux

The Bear fell ill this morning, after a weekend of fun with her cousins. She and the Mouse slept through the night (Holy Crap!) but the Bear screamed out at 6am and began throwing up…from the hallway into our bathroom. Yesterday we were in New Jersey for the Kelsey Theater’s […]

The Bear's 1st Camera

Some of you may recall, from this post, that we purchased the Bear a non-kiddie digital camera for her 4th B-Day. I wanted to share a couple shots from her first few “rolls” (we still have the GE supplied memory card in there which holds a whopping 16 photos). The […]

Eyeball Cake and Mouse Steps

The Bear’s birthday will be observed officially this Saturday evening at my folks’ house. The “event” will piggyback onto our family’s Easter feast. We ordered a pair of 7″ cakes from a cool little mom-n-pop bakery on the Main Line with instructions to decorate one with Maggie and the Ferocious […]

The Mouse has spent the last 16 hours marking her territory all about the house (and the left side of my favorite red shirt). The poor gal will celebrate her 9 month birthday today with a nasty stomach bug but the funny thing is that she couldn’t be happier…when not […]

It's my sailboat and I'll cry if I want to

The Bear turns 4 (holy crap!) this coming Sunday. We wanted so badly to have her party at World Cafe Live on 3/16 for the Justin Roberts show but it would wind up costing close to $600 which is flat-out insane. Then we looked for something else original and fun […]

It sucks to be the Mouse

Ouch. The Mouse is down for the count this weekend. She’s been diagnosed with RSV and a double ear-infection (which is approximately one ear away from the rare triple ear-infection). She is 8 months old on Monday and this is the first major, prescription-drug-necessary illness – so we’re luck for […]
