Tough Stuff

March 12, 2012

We had a rough weekend here at the McResidence. When I returned home from dropping the boys off at school on Friday morning, I noticed things were awry in Lulu’s cage. Her bedding was strung out all over the cage, and she was all sprawled out like she was stretching, only she wasn’t moving. She […]

I spent the day volunteering at Stevie’s school. As I shared some serious laughs with some of the other moms, it dawned on me just how thankful I am for his school. I’ve been busier than a raccoon in a trash-pile the past two days with PTA stuff and I’m hoping tomorrow will be my day […]

A Girl Named Lulu

September 9, 2011

When I was growing up, I always thought I would have a daughter. I dreamed of buying frilly little dresses and shopping the day away with her. I just knew that when she was grown, we’d be best friends. As I was all sprawled out on the ultrasound table during my second [and what I knew would also be my […]
