No More Monkeys…

We were singing No more monkey this morning. Then I stopped singing to go make lunch. Bella made up her own version. Bella’s version: (As transcribed by me. This is word for word) There was two little girls jumping on the table. Their mother told them not to; but they kept doing it. They both […]

Looking on the Bright Side

The nice upside of the middle of the night leakage of the water filter last night (thank God I heard it dripping when I was up nursing Ben or it might have done some real damage overnight!) is that today we organized the coat closet. Everything was already out all over the living room. Only […]

A Day of Graces

On Sunday we finally got to meet my new niece, Zelie Marguerite. And we celebrated her reception into the church as she was baptized during the morning Mass at St Adelaide’s in Peabody. She is so beautiful. I am in love with those wide eyes and delicate features. She reminds me so much of my […]
