Getting ready for the spring consignment sale means weeding through those things my son has outgrown. Some items hold no great memories and then there are these PINK CAT SHOES. It was in our final days in India (March 2014), when we purchased the shoes. HBT feet had grown a full shoe size in six weeks.... Continue Reading →
The day is already behind...Monday morning, I should be in my home office by 8am, at the latest. It's now 9am. Some how the hour lost of work was worth it. I taught my son the relationship of Work-money-toys. Or so I think.... Me: I have to go to work now. You will play with... Continue Reading →
Traveling at the age of 2 1/2...well actually 2 years 8 months, is tough. There are so many new things to see and foods to try. It does not help that the days are centered around mom's work. True, HBT does have fun climbing the rug piles, hunting down the cows and all in all... Continue Reading →

Not only did HBT pick out my clothing for the day, he was my personal paparazzi. Monday morning we went to Mcdonalds and one clothing stop. This was to wear him out, so mom could get work done all afternoon.
Sunday was a day of rest. We went to the mall. HBT played in a type of Chucky Cheese area, while the mom's shopped. He has gotten into handing over his camera to me, and say my picture, then he makes a pose. Since these photo's and poses are directed by him I have included... Continue Reading →

Saturday, we saw so much. I think it is best shown through a video. HBT's was very excited by the farm land we drove through- the cows, sheep, goats and camels.
