Finally being able to take the kids out for a fun (but brief) Friday evening felt like something that would never happen. Although Panda is still a bit unpredictable, the amount of time that we can spend in public before a meltdown is getting longer, and a drink generally only gets spilled one time, on… Read More Family date night.
On Friday, I sent a screen-cap of the weather forecast to Captain, planning for the weekend ahead. We’re always so busy, and I’m just getting over a nasty head cold, so we were excited to have an open weekend with such wonderful weather.

Last weekend, my mom and dad came for… Read More A day in Columbus.
Pumpkin wants to be Spider-Man for Halloween, and we’ll probably recycle Panda’s Wolverine costume for him. I asked Peanut, “Do you want to be a Marvel superhero for Halloween this year?” She replied “Yes, I want to be a Wonder Woman!” Without missing a beat, Pumpkin declared, “But that’s not Marvel.” Raising nerds right.
