Bad parenting.


I think I should probably stop judging parents who let the TV, video games, etc. babysit their children, because that fireplace mesmerizes and occupies Picky from October to April. What can i say? Mama needs a little quiet time, here and there.

Apple-pickin’ fools.


We had beautiful weather last weekend, so Andy and I decided to head north, and pick apples. I think it’s worth noting that this activity is much more charming when A) it’s not 80 degrees; B) I’m not wearing black and exposed to direct sunlight. Nonetheless, we got lots of good apples, enjoyed the time together, and supported a farm that employs some of the families served by my agency. All in all, not a bad weekend in New York.
