Oct 31


I would post pictures, but unfortunately, my camera took a tumble when we were apple picking in September and I just got around to replacing it.  I’ve figured out how to snap pics but haven’t figured out how to download yet.  But I have some cute pictures, and will post them soon :-). Last year, …

Patience – thy name is NOT Melissa

I try, I really do.  And mostly, I’m pretty good at it.  I think I’m patient with my kids, for the most part.  I think I’m endlessly patient with lots of other situations.  And I adore my husband more than anything in the whole wide world – but I’m so ready to move in.  I …

So excited about moving.  I love moving.  I really do.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m kind of lazy, so I don’t enjoy all the work that goes along with it, but I like being in a new place, new neighborhood, etc.  I found a great table on the internet, someone in Webster (which isn’t too …

So sweet

I love having five kids.  Or three.  Depending on the day.  Today, I happened to have five.  We picked up all three girls from school and brought them back home for an hour and a half before they had to get dropped off for Hebrew School.  And they’re all so cute together!  Sammy put on …

I feel like I should title this “Moving – Part 1” because I’m certain that there will be many more posts on this topic before I’m all settled in.  I have a tiny apartment, in theory, there shouldn’t be all that much to pack.  But in reality, I’ve got tons.  Just flat out tons of …

Saturday mornings

On Saturdays, Marc takes the four oldest kids to Hebrew School.  Julianna is still too little, and there’s literally nowhere, with the exception of the front lobby, where I can sit and nurse her.  I’m as big a fan of nursing in public as there is, but I still feel vaguely uncomfortable whipping out my …

Lots to talk about…

Hmmm – where to begin?  First, let me just state for the record that I’m now fighting for computer time with not just Marc, but also with Jessie and Sam, so forgive me if the blog posts are becoming a little less frequent :-).  Strangely, while I’m convinced that one television set is more than …

Guest Entry from Jessica

All about Me This story is all about me.  Yes, that’s right, me.  Jessica.  I am seven years old.  I live on Avalon Place, but not for long.  I’m moving to a new house soon.  I have two big sisters.  And a little one too.  And a little brother.  My biggest sister’s name is Lilli.  …

It goes by so fast

Everything with Julianna is bittersweet for me.  Because I know, on some level, that she’s my last little baby.  I love having babies, and if Marc and I were younger, I think I’d have seventeen of them.  I’m 36 and Marc is 40, and if we wait until Julianna is three (which is really the …

Big girl time…

With Jessica’s new schedule – I’ve had to work hard at finding time with her.  Not just for she and I, but also to make a concerted effort to give her time alone with her daddy and with Julianna.  She gets a lot of time with Sam, just by virtue of the fact that he …
