Les's company sent us these amazing flowers after we had Milo.  The arrangement was enormous!  It was so fun to show off our flowers when we were showing off our baby.  Thanks eRe!

Mommy Grandma Anya

A few things my Mom taught me along the way:

Always stop to buy lemonade from children at the side of the road

Wear your seat belt

Broccoli is delicious, eat often (Spinach is yummy too)

Don't be afraid to be creative and unique

Children's Christmas dreams can and should come true


Turn off the TV

Relax and enjoy life

Children's books should be read with gusto, using different voices where applicable

Pursue what makes you happy

Keep your heart healthy

When necessary, play dumb

Dance silly around the kitchen

Set up blind dates. maybe not.

When children 'talk back' spray them with water

Long fingernails give such good back tickles

Humor can dispell a lot of difficult situations

Make friends with your kid's friends

Laugh loudly

Be conscientious of other's and their feelings, say sorry if you need to

Make friendly conversation with strangers in line at the supermarket


Keep a good perspective on life
