A few months ago, the sweet people from Calico Critters reached out to me and asked if I wouldn’t mind if they named a critter after my Piperjane. My response was “Screamscreamscream. yes. Screamscreamscream.” Anyway, they named the most adorable Chocolate Labrador Triplet after her. For some reason I picture her being the one in [...]
I think we can all agree this blob has been lacking a little sass. Consider that remedied with a single-mighty wink. It was the wink heard ’round the world.

We don’t always get along. Piperjane doesn’t always give me the attention I want from her. Sometimes books are more interesting…you know, those cardboard page-turners. My feelings get hurt when I am neglected. But I just can’t stay mad at this little one.

My Piperjane turned 5 on Monday. I don’t even know where to start.

PiperJane and I have been having a lot of “awakeovers” lately. It would be completely silly to call them sleepovers, because sleep has little to do with either of us the whole time. I’m kept awake by curious little 4 year old fingers examining my face, and Piperjane stays awake for hours researching the facial [...]

Hey! I’m back from Argentina (Ard-hen-dtheen-aw)! First, again let me thank you for the most uplifting comments and emails ever. I’m going to be fine (i’m going to be wonderful even!). I just need reminders now and then, and you have all been more supportive and motivational than I ever dreamed. Second, I missed Piperjane [...]

The See Kai Run Piper Jane shoes have arrived so we spent the weekend testing them out. They are good for jumping, snuggling, swinging, climbing, dancing, walking, wabbling, perching, splits-ing and all around PiperJaning. Jealous? Me too. They only come in kids’ sizes. (Also, how is that for a sweet time in the picture? Pippy [...]

Piper Jane has a huge toothy grin. I love it so much. We’ve been told be a dentist friend that her teeth are a little bigger than her mouth/face proportionally. Nothing to worry about (I was like that too!), she’ll grow into it and it makes for the hugest, toothiest smile in the world. It [...]

This weekend was full of perfect Pip visits. Jake and I were able to be civil to each other, but we agreed we could have easily fought over Pip’s affection the whole weekend. Tooth and nail I tell you. She was a pure delight to be around. Smiley, charming and silly. When Piperjane moved rooms [...]

When I was little, we had a bunch of cassette tapes with uplifting kids songs. We would listen to them and sing along about cleaning up, telling the truth, saying thank you, the value of work..etc. There was even a song about growing up to be a mother. That one is my favorite now, because [...]
