Watching Alexander and Ava play together is almost too much yar for me to handle. Alexander loves to teach Ava new words, Ava loves to laugh at Alexander's jokes. They are a pretty good team. Who knows what the future might bring.

They might become…

An acrobatic team known for daring sit-n-spin maneuvers.


The first brother-sister Latisse models.

(Latisse is a new pharmaceutical being advertised with insanely-long-eyelashed models. Latisse is supposed to increase eyelash volume for those that suffer from – as the commercial states - “inadequate or not enough lashes”. Apparently, their target demographic doesn’t know what the word “inadequate” means.)


Alexander may have some crazy idea brewing that none of us can even imagine right now. Not even Ava.

Who knows?

But just as sure as tape on the nose is always funny

and ruffles on a baby hinder are always cute

exuberant sibling hugs are always free.

(And sometimes dangerous.)

I hope you’ve enjoyed this hearty slice of yar cheese.

Fear of Irony

When Comfort Food Goes Too Far

Sometimes, grandma feeding you comfort food can be too comforting.

There has been a lot of shenanigans, literal and figurative parades, various happenings, and milestones. There has also been a profoundly lazy blogger. I do have a doctor's note, though.

Please accept my sincere apologies for this blog pause, or "blause".

In the meantime, enjoy a these pictures of the children looking at something interesting. Probably a parade of the literal variety.
