  • Nursing

    This story was sent to me by Gigi’s kindergarten teacher: So, I’m wondering how often Bradley nursed Jude through is belly button. Gigi is in the home center right now. She was just telling Luke that he can’t nurse the baby, “unless it is through his belly button.” “Dads can only nurse a baby through […]

    Jude and I had the house to ourselves today and it made me realize just how infrequently he and I get that one on one time since Guinevere is only in Kindergarten half day and his nap takes place while she is there.  Next year there will be a lot more opportunities together once Guinevere […]

  • Logan Park

    Whenever I ask what we want to do today Jude has learned to fold his hands together in prayer and extort “Puweeeze park?

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

A long time ago…
