A-ha! O-ho! A tale and a show!

Even when little Miss A was just a tiny tot, she already had a strong personality.  She insisted on doing everything herself and could be as stubborn as both her father and I combined (which is saying a lot).  We should have expected it; after all, what little hair she was born with was red....

The New Year’s Eve Letdown

New Year's has never been my favourite holiday.  It gets hyped up so much that you can't help but feel disappointed when the countdown begins and your Prince Charming still hasn't made an appearance (or, worse, has found a princess other than you).  I long ago gave up expecting much out of New Year's Eve,...

A pancake kinda morning

Today when she finally woke up, Miss A asked for pancakes.  I tried to convince her that something else would be just as yummy, and she agreed with me: 'Yes Mommy, toast with Queenies jam tastes good.  We can have some after we make pancakes.  I'll get the 'gredients.'  How could I argue with that?...
