Memorial Day Memories

About two months ago I lost my website. Two years of writing was completely gone. The whole website had to be rebuilt.

Musings of a Newborn

Star date – 150120013, It’s been six weeks since I was forcibly ejected from my escape-pod.  Fortunately my captors have demonstrated compassion.  The two older captors – who call themselves Momma and Daddy – seem to be kind.  They take turns changing my space suit which inexplicably floods throughout the day.  The younger one, whom Momma and Daddy refer to […]

Baby’s 1st Time at Daycare

Today was the first time I put Baby in daycare.  My husband had the day off and we thought it would be fun to have an afternoon date.  We took Baby to daycare, signed a few forms at the front desk and then met the people who were going to watch our child.  Since this was our first time using daycare there was […]
