  • Stories & Snowy Day Frustrations

  • Dream
    on Feb 10, 2014
    Every day for school, Cava has to read for 25 minutes. Today he went to the playroom and got the book he wanted to read off the shelf and brought it to me: Dream by Susan V. Bosak. It's a beautifully written and illustrated picture book tha...
  • Boxes
    on Sep 10, 2013
    Working for a toy company, I get a lot of displays in the Fall to promote the toys in store for the Christmas season. This year was no different, as I got around 40 boxes of displays. As I began to take the displays out to install them in designated...
  • The End of Bedtime Stories?

  • Labor Day At Reedy Creek
    on Sep 2, 2013
    Our Labor Day started off with a bumpy morning, as Cava woke up in an irritable mood. Since this was one of the few mornings where Danelle got to sleep in, I got up to ask Cava to be quiet so he wouldn't wake his Mom up. I ended up having to do this...

  • Ideals, Literature, & A Solitary Nature
    on Aug 27, 2013
    We all have ideals. Ideal places, ideal situations, ideal people, etcetera. My ideal anything typically involves books. It always has. I truly believe I came out of my mother's womb with a book in hand and I'm seldom anywhere without books. If y...
  • Hands On
    on Aug 23, 2013
    School for us starts Monday, so we are trying to get in those last minute summer fun trips. This one was a trip to the mountain town of Hendersonville, North Carolina to go to a great place called Hands On. Of course, I travel with my posse (Benjamin...
