Then & Now

It has been almost
four weeks
since we moved.
Life has changed.

Then: Surrounded by boxes.

Now: Enjoyment of a yard.

A Table Scandal, Of Sorts

Yesterday I had the distinct pleasure
of enjoying Sunday lunch
with my main two year old squeeze.
Just me, him, and some Thai food.
So I alone had to endure the awkwardness
when my lunch date lifted up his shirt and
at the top of his lungs screamed b**bies.

While not a completely mortifying moment,
somewhat hysterical if you ask me,
certainly not appropriate table behavior.

Public Apology

It has officially happened.
All those times as a kid an
adult (read: my dad) would
say something akin to
“When you get older you will understand”
“You will do the same thing when you pay the bills”
has come true.
And oh how it pains me,
If only to show me how
much of a real grown-up
I’m becoming.
Because only grown-ups
do what I’m about to
publicly apologize for.

A Public Apology to My Dad:
I’m sorry I never turned off the lights when I lived under your roof. Now that we have our own house with a lot of lights, I run around turning them off. Just like you said I would. Dang it.


I think it rained
e v e r y
s i n g l e
Saturday in October
except one.
Halloween was no exception.
So our 2009 pumpkin picking
excursion was, um,
not that exciting.

Family pumpkin
and Luke’s pumpkin.

Our pumpkin seeds.
Luke shoveled them in.
