I think I am sending my youngest to an overnight programming class at iD Tech at UC Irvine this summer! I’m so nervous about it. My daughter is now 12 but we sent her to a Girl Scout (Camp Scherman) summer camp when she was going into 3rd grade. It was such a great experience for […]


Yearly Checkup

by Kristi on May 25, 2016 · 0 comments

We had our 10yo and 8you yearly checkup yesterday. It went well. My 10yo is staying about the same on her weight chart which is what we have been watching. For awhile she was going down so the hunt for the perfect amount of calories a day was quite a struggle. So the 8yo jumps […]

A Day of Taekwondo

My kids work really hard at Taekwondo and it shows. My baby has been doing it for almost two years now? He has his brown belt and a record number of stripes this testing period (31!). He will be achieving his senior brown belt today. Here he is watching his sister get ready to test […]

    Not to be outdone from yesterday’s post… I love this photo of GG and I. He is looking so sweetly into my eyes, while he plays with my hair. This photo reminds me of who he is right now. This boy is so sweet, so thoughtful, and he is insanely curious. While he […]


Slow Summer Mornings

My baby woke up early because of some SILLY huge truck squeaking his breaks verrrryyyyy slooowwwwllllyyyyyy down our hill. SO annoying. But as I helped him get his bathroom on, I held out my arms to him and he willingly jumped into my lap and bowed his head to curl it under mine and snuggle […]

We are at: Voice lessons on Monday, Taekwondo for G Art class on Tuesday,  Taekwondo for G Gymnastics for both on […]


Santa, Baby

I’m so happy they still believe. 🙂 GG wants Lego Star Wars. Sam wants an Art Coloring case, Lego Friends Summer Camp, and a spa pedicure. All of which is covered by upcoming birthday’s and Christmas. Woot!


Do you see this face? This is one of my favorite faces. It’s made better by the HUGE grin on his face because he is doing Taekwondo. We finally signed him up! Hubby found a Yorba Linda Martial Arts Center near our house. We had actually been to another popular place with Sam a few times. […]

Swim & Soccer Craziness

by Kristi on September 15, 2012 · 1 comment

Man, it’s taken a long time for GG to figure out swimming. We’ve been getting lessons from Sarah the last 6 weeks and something clicked. So we continued it for another month… I’m so glad we did! He put on googles, he jumped in… and in two week’s he is taking his survival test! We […]

I Haven’t Bought Your Ticket, Buddy

This and other things that I lie about to my three-year old… I’ve talked about how we have massive potty training issues with my kids. They are both on a full tablespoon of Miralax. GG is on two teaspoons of mineral oil every day too. Potty training has never been pretty. Anyway. We are going […]

Whispering In the Dark

by Kristi on February 15, 2012 · 2 comments

We switch off bedtimes. I read a story to GG at night and sing him a song. He’s very demanding at night. After I sing a song (usually the same one EVERY night – Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree), he has to lay on me and we cuddle. My favorite time. Then he has […]


Sick and Nurturing

Yes, yes, Happy Birthday to my beautiful amazing 5 year old! I have a longer post that will be going out later… Hopefully. And yes, I’m TOTALLY going to backdate it for yesterday. But my poor baby G is sick again. I just looked at my blog posts last year and I didn’t POST about […]
