This weekend the fam hit the road to Philadelphia for a quick getaway in honor of G’s birthday.  The anticipation of getting away from it all, hanging in the hotel, walking around the city and enjoying new food, new sites and actual shopping had us buzzed with excitement as we pulled onto the highway in the early Friday evening. 632 more words

Little Things

Yesterday, O’s awesome teacher discussed with us some methods that might work at a.m. drop-off.  This morning, I talked O through the plan several times at home (when we get to school we wash hands, get our chair, two kisses, and a hug) and on the way to school and we had a wonderful drop-off, complete with O telling his teachers and classmates about an upcoming trip we’re taking as B and I left for work.  55 more words

Monday, Monday

This morning was rough.  The Monday morning after the long three-day Fourth of July holiday and I could see we were not the only ones feeling the effects.   623 more words
