I just... I don't even know what to say about this.

50 is the new 20

I don't know where this summer is going, but it's simultaneously flying and creeping by.

It's 2:30 in the afternoon with a sweaty napless baby on my lap and two bored big sisters asking for popsicles and the clock hasn't moved in an hour and a half and then I look up and it's three weeks later...

Anyway, I'm behind on sharing some pictures from my birthday canoe trip with Chase and the girls.

We had a blast. Being 30 so far is a lot like being 29 - it's over 100 degrees every day and my bangs won't do what I want them to.

Really though, I think 30 might be a bigger milestone for people who didn't see that plus sign on the little stick quite so early in their 20s. It definitely doesn't mean "finally grown up" to me... On the other hand, I'm looking forward to some wild and crazy 50s, when all the rest of you suckers are still ferrying your kids between soccer and ballet.

bath time

He's at that wonderful stage where he's still too little for a tub bath, but getting too big for a sink bath.

Actually it's not an issue of size so much as reach. And busyness.

In order to contemplate a bath now I have to clear off the counters in a 3 ft radius around the sink- because he will be climbing and grabbing and slipping and sliding and pulling and splashing and laughing.

In other words, a good time is had by all.

At least until he figures out how to turn the water on...
