Suddenly all the snickering and giggling made sense.
I've never been much of a wine drinker, but give me a box of kiwi and strawberry juice and you and I will get along juuuuuust fine.

When buying gifts for kids I follow these simple rules: Try to encourage imagination, Make sure the kid will like it, and If I'm annoyed by it, the parents are going to be annoyed by it.

Not Prepared

Only after I rattled on of nothing in particular, did I realize I should have asked her the same question. Small talk is not my friend.
Note: I'm referring to awkward pauses where the other person is expecting you to carry on the conversation, not natural pauses.

Always Growing

This happens to all parents, I think. My sisters for sure anyway. And most likely my brother too.
The song is from "Fiddler on the Roof"

"Happy Windsday Owl!"

The "song" is from The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. It often pops into my head on windy days. Of course sometimes the wind is blowing so hard that if you're walking into it, you find it hard to breathe.

It takes a few conversations before they get used to me. Like a goldfish in a new bowl.

Spring is here...

They don't do too much right now, most of the winged insects are still pretty lethargic (which is good because it will still freeze over periodically for the next little while) but the ants and spiders are starting to get pretty active.
