A life at home with the kids moves so very, very slowly and so neck-breakingly fast. This is one of those times I wish would move much more slowly. The combination of almost-three-and-a-half and ten months old is a magical, charmed moment when both children are so sweetly lovely, so giggly and fun, so unwittingly hilarious that I would like to stop right here for a good long time and pour both of my children out on the floor and roll around in them for a while.

My resolution this year is to worry less about whether the floors are clean or my ass is flabby or the children need their nails cut and just revel a bit more in the blissful moments when they come along. I'm much more an obsessor than a reveler, so we'll see how it goes.

Twice in the last week, my cousin's 3 year old has had four generations of my family laughing so hard that we all had tears streaming down our faces. And I wanted to pause him at this age when so much is still new to him, when he giggles about things that just sound funny, and when the randomest things come out of his mouth.

Happy New Year to the Cactus-Fish Family!

Great resolution! My kids are 6 and 13, and I still have those moments of 'oh my god, can it get any funnier/better?'. You have many years of hilarity to come.

Happy New Year

A great resolution and one that I need to abide by more this year as well. It's hard sometimes when life's stresses and messes get in the way.

Good luck. That is an admirable resolution. You see, before you know it, Mia will be 32 like my daughter! And it went that fast! But here is a tip. Looking back at the pictures I noticed all those bad hair styles I had, so be sure to keep up with your hair dresser. Sure wish I had! LOL!
Happy New Year!

Happy 2009!!

An excellent resolution. Enjoy those two beauties (love the new pics, by the way!).

I must have missed something... are you no longer freakishly flexible?

Happy New Year to you and your family.

Happy 2009! Great resolutions! I gave clean floors up when Lisa was born. I settle with "relatively" clean now :)

"Cleaning and scrubbing can wait 'til tomorrow
For babies grow up we've learned to our sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep
I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep!"

Meet the Fish

I want to get a pet duck and keep it in the bathtub.
I am addicted to chap stick and altoids.
I am freakishly flexible.
