What a year it’s been! Chris and I were just telling Sophia as we tucked her in for the night that she was going to wake up in a whole new year tomorrow morning (Hmm…wishful thinking that it will actually be “the morning” when she wakes up? We’re in the middle of fun-filled nights of […]
Merry Christmas from Girl’s Life! We been having a wonderful and peaceful season. Seriously, this has been the calmest Christmas I think I’ve ever had. And calm is a big deal with a toddler in the house!
The baking is done, the big dinners are eaten, the presents are opened, the carols have been played (and […]
Never boast of your toddler’s lack of interest in the art of throwing tantrums. I mean it. DON’T!
We just got back from a quick trip to Santa Barbara where Sophia threw no less than five horribly timed and loudly orchestrated fits.(A couple involving kicking. All involving snot.) In just 24 hours, the girl […]

Well, at least inside our house it is. Outside it’s still in the upper 70s and not at all wintery. But since we got our Christmas decorations put up, I’m totally in the holiday spirit.
