So, I promised to talk golf, when I brought up H’s latest obsession. So, here it is. Marc’s parents were here last month. Grandpa, the committed golfer, has long grumbled about our lack of cable. He has a weekend routine that he needs to keep, which includes watching sleeping through golf coverage on TV each […]

peeee keeeeee

Overjoyed with the presentation of pizza at dinner time, H attempts to say “thank you”. The phrase “thank you” has been a hurdle to overcome. And he actually JUST started saying it correctly this week. And while I was only very mildly concerned about the fact that he could never say “thank you” (it was […]


First it was football. Then came the drums. Then golf and although the kid still enjoys to whack the little white ball around (photos and stories still to come), that phase was short-lived and mild compared to this.

the addition of “y”

From the moment we found out that our kid was growing inside my belly, I have imagined myself as a “Momma”. Which is, in my mind, an entirely different word from “Ma Ma” – the common few syllables first pronounced by babies. I never thought of myself as a “Mommy” – especially as spoken by […]


We have started to let the kid watch a bit of TV (or “TEEEEDEEEEEE!” – rather) now and then. I know – that along with breakfast-cake – means that pretty much all of our parental goals have gone the way of last weeks recycling. We had a great 18-month run, but, it had to end […]
