This Week

The girls and I watched the red carpet a bit. Lots of pretty dresses. Their most common criticism was, as M put it, “Too boobish.” For example, regarding Jennifer Lopez, M said, “The dress is pretty, but I’d like it better if she had an undershirt. . . Maybe a light blue undershirt, so she … [Read more…]

Let’s Get This Party Started!

We’ve decided to relax this weekend and not do too much of anything. Good idea. Except that when the girls appear to be playing contentedly on their own, it often means that they are Up To No Good. Exhibit A: I was taking out the recycling when I noticed that my good stock pot was … [Read more…]

Fun in the Capital District This Week

Happy Halloween, everybody! We ended up skipping out on an after school Halloween party because the girls were freakishly tired.

Apple & Wine Festival, Farm Fest, Undercover Playground, LarkFEST, Hispanic Heritage, and More This Weekend

Just went to little J’s Back-to-School Night. Her teacher’s the same person M had in first grade, and she’s just gotten better. Plus, there were slides of our children looking adorable, so what’s not to like? Except, of course, that it’s after 8 and I still haven’t had dinner yet. I’m waiting to have dinner … [Read more…]

On Wednesday from noon to 3 … [Read more…]
