While Ben was napping, the rest of us went out to enjoy the sunny afternoon. I was very taken with the monochromatic outfits that the girls had put together, Bella in pink and Sophie in green. And then Anthony was in blue for a perfect trio. I had to snap photos. Bella danced and posed […]

Last Sunday since Dom was in the hospital and we were all going stir-crazy, the kids and I took a drive to the park and fed the ducks, geese, and a swan. It was cold and wet; but at least they were out of the house. Praying about rain On Monday Bella and I had […]
Have you been following Sarah Reinhard’s “Looking Closer at the Hail Mary” blog series? Well, have you? To be honest, I haven’t been following it very closely because I’ve really been trying to limit my computer time recently, even after my Lenten sacrifice is over. But I have been dipping in occasionally and discovered some […]
So yesterday Dom had a numb feeling on his scalp and one side of his face. When it didn’t go away by the afternoon, he called the doctor and was sent to Urgent Care. Which was closed so he ended up at the ER. They gave him a CAT scan and then wanted to do […]
The other morning Bellas was singing this song she’d made up about God creating the world and everything in it. Meanwhile, Sophie and Ben were singing too, and processing around the house holding two books that told the creation story. Sophie told me they were having Mass.

The other morning I was trying to bake bread for dinner and Sophie was pestering me for food. (I don’t normally class requests for food as “pestering”, by the way; but what Sophie was doing was pestering.) After a long and difficult process whereby she rejected all the options I suggested to her (which is […]
I looked up and Anthony, who had been calmly eating his tortilla while seated in the yellow chair, had somehow scaled the table. See how proud he is? I guess every family has to have one. I’ve finally met mine. Though I do wonder how much birth order has to do with it. Bella might […]
Ben and Bella, but mostly Ben running and running. And Anthony roaming back and forth between my lap and the bench where Sophie is sitting (where the food was). I told you I was on a video kick.
Yesterday was the anniversary of Anthony’s baptism but we were too busy for me to bake a cake so we decided to postpone the celebration to today. (Bella noted that we delayed his birthday celebration by a day too. Poor Anthony, I resolve to do better next year.) Despite a rough night, I managed to […]
