Papa and Eamon

Sometimes you have to please a young toddler to get anything done around here…

Eamon insisted on “supervising” from the best vantage point


But it sure can be fun to engage with this little fella.

Trying Not To Play In The Dirt

Eoin is a little scientist, so it is quite a struggle for him at T-Ball not to DIG in the dirt all the time… I wish I didn’t have to yell at him to watch out for batted balls coming right for his head quite so much, but I am proud of him for participating most of the time.

He has hilarious moves


After one particularly absent-minded game, Eoin told me he had an inch worm in his glove the whole time… That explained a lot…

Keeping Busy with the Boys

March was a cold month. We kept busy with some new things, some old things, and lots of time indoors.

I let the boys use kinetic sand WITHOUT supervision!

I also got back into baking a little bit. I have been too tired or too busy following a toddler from one mess to the next, but things have settled a little now and I am taking some time to bake and even knit. I had some blueberries the boys wouldn’t eat but that I thought could make a nice scone. I was right!

Two Blizzards

We are on the other side of two back-to-back blizzards. The boys have had five straight days with no school (Thursday, Friday, Monday) ARGH! So here, for your perusal are many many photos of snow…

I was in serious need of some chocolate yesterday, so I got out the fondue pot and we had ourselves some yummy fruit. Yummy.

Thumbs up mom!


Did I get any in my mouth?


Yesterday the snow was a much heavier snow. Eamon was still not sure, but was mostly game.

Four-Month Laceweight Project

The blog has been extraordinarily quiet knitwise. I was doing a secret project for my mother-in-law’s birthday, but it took a lot longer than I envisioned. It was laceweight mohair and incorporated a simple “spin stitch” effect, where you put the stitches on a cable needle and spin it either clockwise or anti-clockwise depending on the row. It turned out really well.
