It`s Official

My camera is dead. 100%, non-revivable dead.
On the bright side, this means I get to buy a new one. Preferably one with the ability to take a photo in less than 45 seconds after I press the button! Irving and I did our research and discovered that cameras are, um, expensive down here. [...]

Some of you suggested that we hire a mother`s help or set up something with the inlaws to help me work with Irving being gone so much. Both great suggestions, but unfortunately, my in-laws aren`t here much anymore, they`re all working or studying. Diana, who used to do occasional childcare for us, has a job [...]

Irving by himself isn`t famous, but Banda Vega sure is. And that means when we go shopping for diapers, people stop him to ask him about the band and where they`re playing next. His blog is getting a huge number of hits and we can`t walk down the street without two or three people coming [...]

From the time I could [...]

Why I LOVE 3 Year Olds

Posted on January 23, 2009 - Filed Under Kids | 1 Comment

3 has always been my favorite age. When my baby sister was 3, it was just so wonderful to watch her fascination with the world. Now Dorian is at this wonderful age!
A few reasons I just adore 3 year olds:

Ok, if you missed the interview earlier today it`s already up so you can listen to my amazingly deep comments.

This is yet another part of my “be successful in 2009 or die trying” campaign. I`m going so far [...]
