Is there a word for that thing where you plan all sorts of lovely activities and adventures for your holiday but then everyone gets sick?
And in the end you say, well, OK, cancel the adventures. And it's lucky, really, that we've got this time off to rest up and take care of each other.

Would we call that a Carecation?  A Sickcation?

I dunno what to call it, but this is the second time it's happened this year.

world's greatest Dad

We'll be celebrating Father's Week here when Hayden takes a week off work to hang out with us, starting Sunday.
It will be so lovely to have a little holiday, just the three of us.
Even if we're not going anywhere new.

I am reading Anne Lamott's Operating Instructions and Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Sleep Solution concurrently.
Together they're helping me to feel ever so slightly less alone in my approach to mothering Timmy.
I hope to gain the courage to start talking a little bit more about that here.

Happy to be blogging again.  But how do I get the text to align with the bottom of the photo?
