Papa Don

Duncan's Papa Don passed away last week and it has been a sad few days in our house.  My son is a just a little boy and has lost both of his biological grandfathers to cancer.  It's just not fair.  I am grateful that he had the chance to build some wonderful memories with Papa Don and share some special experiences.  You will be very missed, Papa Don.

Someone found a treasure while thrifting this weekend!

Thursday, July 27, 2017


Sometimes parenting is mind-numbing.  I often wonder if he will, at some point, learn to actually get his clothes into the dirty clothes basket or stop losing things.  Sometimes, parents get those shining moments of victory.  My son is kind to animals and it makes me smile.  He didn't have to make Zoe a special bed to feel cozy but he did.  I knew she wouldn't use it but I let him make it and praised him for being so thoughtful and taking good care of her.  Hopefully the other things will work themselves out (hopefully) over time.  For now, I'll take kindness.  What a sweet pie.
