Week 15 :: April 08 – 14 Samuel is still bathing in the infant tub. Our Wednesday date was at the local library — he loved visiting with the fishes and reading horse books. Over the weekend, we took him to a Kid’s Expo in Placerville and had a picnic outside (per Samuel’s request). Week [...]
A year ago, I was on the hunt for men’s ties for spirit day wear. I scoured the thrift stores for cheap ties — but was disappointed to find that they were $3-5 a piece. Upcycling projects ain’t happening at that price. I texted my buddy Jo about my dilemma and she said, “I have [...]
Week 12Rough start to our week. Samuel had a low-grade fever over the weekend and doctor’s visit on Monday confirmed that he has yet another ear infection — that’s two ear infections in a two month period! Poor guy. Samuel continues to wear his rain boots — even when it is not raining. Sometimes he [...]
My sister made this gorgeous green sweater for my little fella for St. Patrick’s Day. And since he is like me, she made him his very own cowl and matching hat. He’s a budding artist — singing his birthday jam for my ma. She also made this lovely hat and scarf for a little lady. [...]
Week 09 :: Feb 25 – Mar 03Somebody around here is very happy with an indoor slide. He slid down that slide 30+ times each day. Each night, he got a bit bolder — standing on it, doing balancing tricks, etc. One evening, he asked me to take photos of him making his way up [...]
Sending you lots of sunshine + happiness today! I am very happy to have the day off. Looking forward to a fun, adventurous day with my boy.

Yeah! Carrot Cake is da bomb. Presents. Learning to dribble sitting down. His favorite ride at my mom’s house. They [...]
Dear Samuel, Today, you are TWO! You asked to go to Leatherby’s for your birthday. So tonight we celebrated two at Leatherby’s where you ate ketchup, french fries and part of dada’s roast beef sandwich. You also devoured a cup of whipped cream and hot fudge. You know it’s your birthday week and have [...]
Just wanted to share a couple of photos from today. If you’ve been following my blog, you would know that I LOVE spirit week at school! Mr. Fredricksen in da house! I thought it was brilliant … and the kids loved it! My kids were blown away. One boy said, “Ms. Nguyen, you are the [...]
Rough week. Jim and Samuel were sick and then I got what they got — we seem to be passing the germs back and forth around here. Can’t wait for us all to get better. Love Ali’s idea of documenting a day in the life each month. Decided not to spend any more money on [...]
