Mom and Boys

Figuring it out one day at a time.


Thank you Uncle Mike.

If you don’t know already know, my former sniper marine brother, Mike, watches my son during the day and has lived with us since Christmas.    Linc adores Mike more than anyone in the world but there have been several very amusing moments watching these two figure each other out.  This is a conversation I overheard this morning.

“Lincoln, did you know that water is a magnifier…”

My thoughts: How cool Mike is giving Linc a science lesson, what a great Uncle.  But then it continued…

“So, if you want to impress a girl with the size of your wiener, do it in water because then it will look even bigger.”

Thank you Uncle Mike.



An unusual conviction

you have brains in your head

You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”

This is an incredibly positive and encouraging quote when beginning a journey.  But at the end of your journey, when your choices have led you astray…

it’s just pretty real.

It is not everyday you feel convicted by Dr. Seuss.
