Boy in a box - A series.
New favorite - I found this picture in Eleanor’s school journal. Obviously, she is now the favorite. Just look at the neck she gave me! 😍 Other important details to note: I think I’m feeding the baby? Henry (I think?) has no outline, but is sitting in a chair. I have the right number of fingers. I’m wearing... Continue Reading →
We have a problem. - I read this article about the amazing Serena Williams over the weekend. Simply, I am enraged. Not just for Williams, who I deeply sympathize with as a mother who has just recently delivered a baby, but I’m also screaming at the top of my lungs for every mother we have. To quote the article (which you must... Continue Reading →
Peek a boo - Grant played peek a boo with the front-facing camera.
Superbee! - Yesterday Henry was one of the Superbees at school.

Woosh - Grant’s favorite game.

I’ll outline some of the specifics below, but the gist is that I’m frankly not sure you can afford not to, with everything happening here. Co-working The Olean Business Development building is more than 130 years old, and has been fully renovated... Continue Reading →
Backpack, backpack - One of the benefits of working at Automattic is that on hire you can pick out a Timbuk2 bag to carry around your computer (another benefit) and other work gear. They also are great for meetups, co-working, and any other kind of movement from point A to point B. I’ve had my Timbuk2 for 5... Continue Reading →
Holidays un-iced - We spent the holidays in Florida this year. We don’t have family there, but since we’ve been living with my parents since September we thought it would be a good opportunity to take a vacation somewhere warm while the kids are out of school. We had a great and exhausting time – as anyone with... Continue Reading →
Beach - The sea was angry that day, my friends. Like an old man trying to send back soup at the deli.
