He reads about super heroes and villains and alternate universes but he is the real hero to me! Every summer he must endure pokes and prods and blood draws to continue to prove that a rare condition handed down at birth has nothing on him. He jokes with the doctors, he charms the female nurses, he uses spare time in hospital waiting rooms to make birthday gift lists for his indulgent aunties and then when it's all said and done we go to Comic Bug where he reads about make believe men who fall short of his own real life heroism! #AllInADaysWork
It's western day at preschool and I know I'm bias but I'm convinced my Noah is the cutest Noah in ALL the west! Let's just hope he isn't too disappointed when he realizes there will NOT be the horse at preschool he seems to think will be waiting for him! 🤠
A two-day getaway with family friends was more restorative than we originally thought it would be. And now we race back to the city so Joe can get to work. Cyndi Lauper's "Time after Time" fittingly plays on the dial! #IfYoureLostYouCanLookAndYouWillFindMe #TimeAfterTime
I was tasked by a great online mag @raisingmothers to post a pic of myself simply being in the moment. Many weeks into this 52 week challenge I still haven't done it. How easy it becomes to focus on the various roles we play: wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, yet how difficult it can be to simply take a moment and see me. So here goes! Here's me: sun kissed, bare-faced, natural and doing one of my favorite things: smiling #rm52weeks
A 48 hour family weekend away and this kid went from being convinced all pools have sharks in them to thinking he is Michael Phelps! #DadsEliminateAllFear #AnotherFavoriteDevotedDadPicturedInAStrawHat
Joshua and Jake take on Summer Break!
Floating in my favorite treat (donut) while drinking my other favorite treat (pina colada). Moms need summer break too!
Seeing that on the 4th of July we couldn't even get him in the water! I think we're making progress! #SummerLove
I pretty much haven't seen Joshua all day. He and his best friend had 45 minute check ins between the pool, rec room and back to the pool. On one occasion I found them like this! According to Joshua they were just taking power from the sun! #SunPowered
Wishing summer would never end!
Noah is ready for his first job at Jamba Juice 🍏🍎🍐🍊🍋🍓🍌🥝🥕
