Companionable

The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge is to show "Companionable."  You can see the post (and cute pictures of dogs) here. That's JC and M. playing with the hose in our backyard. We had two kids so that they would have each other. Though they share the same blood, they are as different as day and…

Picky Eaters

Is your kid the kid who won't eat at the picnic because he doesn't like hot dogs? Who refuses the pizza at the pizza party? Who has a diet that resembles a supermodel? Welcome to the club! I have a kid like that too. JC didn't start off as a picky eater. In the highchair…

Signs

The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week is to share a sign and explain why you chose it to share.
