We Let Them Eat Cake! Happy Birthday Matthew & Leo!

Sick of this? Not me, nor, does it seem, are the rest of American parents in the digital age. See the article “Framing Childhood” in this weeks NYT Magazine. Cliched suburban motherhood becomes me more everyday . . . and I’ve never been happier. Hmmmm. So here I go again, framing a practically perfect day in real time, and in retrospect.

They do not know what is about to hit them . . . well, Leo might have a guess.

Got frosting?

Leo loves to share food. So cute when it isn’t kinda gross.

Thank goodness Matt grew these teeth just in time to eat cake!

Boys, it has been an amazing first year. You keep us laughing, and laughing, and laughing. Life is so very good with you. Dad & I looked at each other on your birthday and agreed, best year ever. Can’t wait for what’s to come.

Happiness and Haircuts (do they really go together?)

NetNet & Aunt Julie, twinkle seesters but not twins, got us in the mood for . . .

A couple of snowdays last week  that led to . . .

. . . and a fantastic visit with Mamie & Kiki!¬† We kicked off the vacation IN LOVE, with them, with life, with all the smiling Valentines in our house – who isn’t happy here? (Even the Coach of the Year, who despite a disappointing playoff game, had a bang-up year and ended the season with his usual style and grace).

And then we got haircuts . . . dun dun dun (that’s how fifth graders write, I have been correcting papers a lot this week).

The recovery was not too bad, though, Cheerios and cellphones (contraband).
