We originally said we wanted three kids. We got three all at once. So then we had three more. Most of their birthdates are divisible by three. All of our kids are about 3 years apart, except for the triplets who are 30 seconds apart. The triplets were three months early, and they spent three […]
The gift-giving season, that is. For our family, it starts in September, really, and runs all the way to March, after which our family gets a nice reprieve (except for Kender’s birthday).

It sounded great, and we figured we’d just do the runecasting in the restaurant after eating and getting more […]
Someday, I want to buy a whole bunch of My Brittle Pony horse jerky from my supplier in Scotland, go into Hot Topic, and secretly pin a bag to each and every My Little Pony t-shirt for sale. Then hide and watch. That store has become such a disappointment over the past decade or so. […]
