It’s a huge milestone for a mother

Guess what LilZ asked me to do this week? Come on…guess. He asked me to serve refreshments at his upcoming school dance. As in…he has no problem with me being at the school dance.

This means his tongue is almost always hanging out. He is MrZ’s first baby, but he loves everyone. Unless you dance. Or hug. He doesn’t like...

TGIF! 12


The circus last night was So. Much. Fun. NikkiZ was a little overwhelmed, but mainly because it started at 7pm and that’s her bedtime. She got a little nervous about the trapeze artists as she seems to have an inherent fear of heights. She would actually cover her eyes. But she was amazed by the whole event. The clowns didn’t phase her much, but they look a lot less freaky than they did when I was a kid. They look more like characters on TV I guess, it’s hard to explain. Now – the elephants?
