In Which I Try to Make Up For Our Slackerdom By Posting Cute Pictures

We’re almost free of school. Technically I’m done, but have had some details (such as a terrible mess of a classroom that needs to be organized and prepared for summer school groups) to take care of. Jen’s last day is (technically) tomorrow. I take a class next week. Then, finally, we will all be home (or at least off) for the summer. Or at least until the week that Jen takes a class. Anyway…

Point being, we’ve been busy. And so, we’ve been lousy about posting. Jen’s been working on a post, but it hasn’t made it to completion yet. I’ve thought of things to post, but none of them even made it to the starting gate. So to satisfy the throngs of adoring fans begging to hear what we’ve really been up to, I present to you this small photo-essay of sorts.

In the last month:

  • Natalie had her first real encounter with the pavement.
  • We had a visit from Hannah!
  • We explored (and LOVED) a local fountain.
  • We did some gardening.
  • We went to Pride and marched in the parade (please note that her shirt is not meant to be a slam against one-mom families. It was a gift, and Pride seemed to be the place to wear it.)
  • Natalie learned about the joys of fresh strawberries.
  • Natalie is also learning all kinds of new words and signs and is entertaining us and challenging us in all kinds of new ways. That, however, is a post for a different day.


  1. Damn straight two mommies are better than one! But since I am straight (damn!) I’ve had to recruit my own mother to be mom #2 for my son. Whenever I’m dumb enough to ask him who his favorite mother is, the answer is always “Nana.”

    They’re letting kids go in that fountain again? That’s so cool. The boy loved it when it was first built, but then it was roped off for a long time. We head in that direction for dinner on a fairly regular basis (mmm, Burmese food) so I’ll have to remember to bring a towel next time. If it gets hot enough, you might find me in there, too!

  2. I’m with summer, two mommies ARE better than one.

    Three might be best, but then the mommies might start to get on each other’s nerves.

    Three: a very unstable number.

    Or is that just MY three CHILDREN? Who knows.

    Beautiful photos!

  3. Love the pictures. She is too cute!
    We forgive you for being MIA.
    That encounter with the pavement looked a little “ouch!”
    Ditto summer and jody on the 2 mommy thing too!!!

  4. yay for an update & double YAY for the great photos of Nat.

  5. Yay! Thanks for the cute pictures!! Aren’t summers great?
