The Results are IN.

I would like to thank all 16 of you who voted in my little “name my new blog” poll. Seriously. I expected much less, so I was pleasantly surprised.

The results are in. Taking a whopping 50% of the vote: ‘Make Way For Geeklings’ was the clear winner.

A few days ago I was talking about the girls’ names. Basically how we didn’t intentionally plan on having them both end in “IA” but they just so happened to be the names we liked. Now we’ve pretty much decided that if we have a third girl, she will need to have a name . . . → Read More: Names

The darndest things…

Since I now have two sick kids, today’s post will be a short one.

This weekend, Bill was making Sophia a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, she’s been going through a “peanut butter only” phase, but in recent weeks she has requested jelly as well. Since Bill was unsure he asked her “Soph, do . . . → Read More: The darndest things…
