Summer S’mores!

S'mores Face

Looking for a delicious summer treat? I made these delectable delights  for a 4th of July party thanks to seeing this post at The Idea Room. I love The Idea Room and have gotten some wonderful ideas from this site in the past! (Like this one!) Oh, but these s’mores bars? They were a big hit!!…

Note to self

Water Balloon

Be a little more descriptive when handing a toddler an unfamiliar object. For example, if it’s a water balloon, don’t just say, “Hey-here’s a water balloon!” Say something more like, “Hey-here’s a water balloon. There’s water inside this water balloon.” He was a surprisingly great sport about it after popping it in his face.

You announce that you’re going to be shy before you walk into a party, and within minutes you declare that you don’t want to be shy. You love to snuggle, but turn your back quickly and ask us to pat your back. When we don’t do it correctly, you demonstrate how it should be done. You…

Duck, duck, duck,…goose!

Mother goose was in a fowl mood today at the zoo when kids were getting too close to her goslings. After a few older kids had gotten a little bit too close for comfort, this goose decided to attack Daryoosh. Sure, go after the smallest kid in the bunch. I see how it works. Anyway,…

My cowboys

Another dancing fool…

On Sunday we went to Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO. We all had a blast, especially Yago, who was tall enough for the kiddie rides (Daryoosh will have to wait for the the next trip, though). It was their last day of World Fest, and we stumbled upon music and dancing from India. We…

The end of an era

On Thursday we decided to take Daryoosh to the ASAP clinic at Vanderbilt. I had heard great things about the clinic, and the only reason we didn’t go there originally is that we were referred to an allergist in close by (and who doesn’t like the convenience of being within a few miles–especially if weekly…

Touché Pussycat!

Tonight, as I was getting Daryoosh ready for bed, he looked at me squarely in the eyes and exclaimed, “I’ll skin you alive!” Thank you Tom and Jerry for some choice phrases in my son’s vocabulary. Some others that he randomly spouts off? “Touché pussycat!” “Bonjour Monsieur Jerry!” “O.W.T. out!” Looks like we should find…

Play Ball!

Just because I’m not a big fan of baseball doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy some fun in the backyard! The boys had fun today! It looks like playing Wii baseball at 18 months does make a difference! Maybe Yago can teach Daryoosh a little bit of Wii baseball in the meantime.    

I did my best.

Well, you can’t say I didn’t do the best I could… Today, Yago, the last one standing without any maintenance medicine, may have joined the ranks of the rest of us. I have never suffered from allergies, but as it turns out, I may have allergy-suffering offspring. I thought I had it all figured out. Studies…
