Totally lazy blog of just cell phone pictures. I have had a terrible cold since Thursday. I can’t even move off couch, only for tea runs.


Ben said, “I love you with all my heart.” Swoon. He is growing up so fast. I want to take in every moment.
Some of these moments are tantrums though. Like today he got mad at me because I threw his three month old balloon in trash.

The string was tied to his royal blue plasric boat. It was tied to the cherry red anchor.

I asked him, “Do you care if I throw this balloon away?”
I threw the flat birthday balloons in the recycling bin. Then the tantrum.
“I’m way mad at you,” he says with a scream.
“Ben say, ‘I’m very mad at you.'” That’s how us English teacher/writer moms roll!
Then Ben says, “I’m very mad at you.”
“OK then.” I said as I retrieved the flat gnarly balloon out of recycling bin. I retied the white string to the cherry red anchor.
The boy was happy once again

Just a slice of our day.


Ben took this photo of his feet.
