I recently watched my 2 year old daughter chat up one of my close friends at an early morning t-ball game.
She had been sitting next to me, but when she noticed my friend sitting a little way down the bench she ran over and started chatting.
We’d been in the same spot less than 12 hours earlier, and this friend and I had spent a good portion of that game chatting, this was just one of the many times my sweet daughter has watched us interact.

So the kids were playing upstairs, but after a few minutes of not hearing the Princess I started to worry. Silence from a kid is rarely a good thing… unless they’re sleeping.Read More »
We were eating lunch and my mom asked why AsthmaMan’s pants were wet.
Actually scratch that, she tried to nicely tell me that he peed his pants.
I assured her that he was fully potty trained and didn’t pee his pants. My parents are watching the kids all week, I don’t want to scare them before I get on the airplane and head out of town. Read More »
I have lots of conversations with my kids that just make me want to scream with frustration or laugh out loud.
