Hearty morning romp

Too bad this snowstorm will make it harder for Coco to find her mid-afternoon snacks.

A strange winter

While most of the East Coast has had its fair share of winter nightmares, ours out here has been relatively mild. It snowed quite a bit last night and this morning, but by later today this should all be melted and gone. And I am so fine with that. What also makes this winter better [...]

Featured community question with yet another reason for couple’s therapy

Today’s featured question comes from user KA (yes, I know one of this member’s questions has been featured before, but I happened to read this one right after a certain encounter, and hell, this member asks great questions): We’ll get to that certain encounter, but first, no matter what my mood, no matter if the [...]

Sunday tradition

Somewhere in the chaos of the last seven months Jon convinced Leta to try a cinnamon roll. We’ve tried in vain before, but this time I guess she was feeling more cooperative. Or, you know, LIKE A REGULAR SIX-YEAR-OLD. So we’ve made a family tradition of eating them on Sunday mornings, and she looks forward [...]

Newsletter: Month Seventy-two

Dear Leta, Yesterday was your sixth birthday. That’s 72 months if I had been keeping up with the monthly newsletters. Yeah, about that… your father and I severely underestimated the amount of chaos a second child would add to all of our lives. It didn’t just double it, it multiplied it by a hundred and [...]

A preview…

Of The Armstrong De-Bearding Celebration. I love how this photo looks like it’s straight out of 1975. And you just know Steely Dan is playing in the background.
