Portrait of an Artist’s Auntie

 “Oh, there’s my best friend!” Kaylie pointed over the counter at Scoop to several self-portraits hanging on the wall drawn by young hands.  I scanned the first-grade faces in colored pencil and looked for Kay. “Where’s yours?” “I don’t know.  It’s not up there.”   Bummer, I thought, Kay’s wasn’t good enough to make the […]

Alex - Adorable!

Aunt Rosa - This is so “FB” Isabelle. She’s so precious and precocious (my how similar those two words are, he, he). She does remind me of other FB’s I know…..including when I look in the mirror, yep, I’m one of them too. We should form a club, what do you say?

Aimee - But who would be the boss??!! :)

“Good, just what I ordered!” Click.

It was the summer of 1982 and my mom had big news for two-year-old me:  I was going to be a big sister!  And I had news for her: I wanted a baby sister! “Maybe it’s a boy, Aimee.  We have to be happy with what God gives us.” “But I want a sister.”  Did […]

Alex - It’s so sweet how you believe you’re going to be the boss of Baby-Babe. That’s exactly what I thought when I had y-o-u. Just wait till she’s two!

Aunt Rosa - Aimee and Seth, I’m so happy for you! Little girls are great….and I say it from experience. And, also remember the saying “Boys are your children until they get married, girls are your children forever!!!!” YEAH!!

Amanda - I would just like to note that the only reason I ran into the wall was because I was beating you in a race. haha And come on…sell your diary secrets to mom? How smart was I? Gotta make a few bucks where you can sometimes. ;) Mom was a paying customer..I should have hiked up the prices….

Aimee - Please! This is how urban legends get started ;) Also, I think you owe me at least a Dewar’s ice-cream from your diary reading profits!

Week 19: Dear Baby Babe

Week 19 Dear Baby Babe, You’re moving!  I was at the vet with Patch on Friday when all of a sudden I felt this little flutter on the right side, high on my stomach.  I did what I always do when I don’t know what’s going on with something health-wise and texted your Grandpa Augusto […]
