One of my favorite things about the digital world is an animated GIF. I love how we can express our emotions with a brief animated visual, usually with a pop culture wink. Animated GIFs with captioning have been around for ages, but lately, a different kind of meme has been showing up. This is a … Continue reading How To Add Text to Animated GIFs and Meme It Up
I eased my way into 2015 the way one might ease into an overly hot bath. I knew it would be more comfortable if I waited to let the waters cool, but waiting wasn’t going to happen. Instead I planted my feet in the hot water and let the rest of me catch up. Hello … Continue reading The one where I tell you about a book I read
W and I got invited to the Adventure Aquarium in NJ this morning to meet an alligator who is visiting for the summer. Lolly and I were very, um, “eeek! Gator!!” but W immediately slapped his arms in a gator-like fashion and growled, “Alligator! I am going to meet you!” At this age all W … Continue reading A Mid-Week Catch-all

But in person they were opposites. I remember speaking to them, on a super rare occasion they were actually at … Continue reading Three little words

So take a peak and then let’s talk about all of these shows. Ok, so maybe it isn’t pretty, but it gets the … Continue reading The post where I talk about tv and you try not to judge me
W is two months old today. We have been up since just before 5am with not much sleep in between. This reflux stuff is brutal. I am getting better at giving him the medicine slowly, and he takes it great (so far). But I am noticing that the reflux is the worst for him between … Continue reading Saturday this and that (with a request for advice included)
How on earth did so many of you continue blogging and reading blogs after giving birth? Seriously. I am so so behind in reading & commenting & being in the know and feeling connected. And all of those reading while nursing people- HOW?! But right now WW is having some Grandmother time and I have … Continue reading How now
