Times change.

You wake up one morning. The number after your name ticks up by one.

And you realize something just isn't quite right with your little world.

The sun peeks through your windows and its light is set further ablaze by the color of your soundings.

This can not stand.

And so ... we change.

But as we do, we have to remember. ...

Some things always stay the same.

These days

I know I'm going to miss these days ...

Messy, lazy, blurry days.

Snow day

He could not contain himself.

I couldn't contain him, either.

She knew I didn't want to go out in the cold and the wet.

She didn't want to go out there either.

But something in my face ... 

She's called it The Look of Disappointment ...

Made her haul on her dayglow coat and too-small boots and pretend to care about snowmen of the smallest stature.

Hat Trick

I think I have finally reached a parenting trifecta.

Some things are just important ...

For instance, not risking "love" by crossing it out ... (Stepping on cracks, though ... that's cool.)


Getting them to fall asleep can seem like an art form ...

But really it's just the material of nightmares.


Best of all is what your daughter will learn from watching all 208 episodes of "How I Met Your Mother" ...


"Hey mom! Come look at the strip club I built in Minecraft. I call it 'Barney's'."

How we roll

...  or, more accurately, how we would have rolled if the People's Parade wasn't rained out.
