Why Did The Family Cross The Road?

January 2, 2013

Somehow Matt and I managed to accumulate about 7 hours of sleep between 1am when we went to bed and 8:15am when Mazen woke up. I was very thankful that early morning wake-ups were snuggly and brief and we started 2013 as rested as parents can be with a four month old. My first trimester […]

Another Oat Experiment

February 22, 2008

Back to the Grind?

December 28, 2007

Alarm Clock Musings Getting up was surprisingly easy today – and I figured out something about our alarm clock that I’m really excited about!!
