A few years ago I ordered clear business cards for my consulting firm. Not only did they look great but they had my logo and information for easy contact. Clear cards and brochures is really essential in having a successful business. If you have something that looks fake or made up and home made people won't take you serious!

6 months old

I can't believe K is 6 months old!?!? He's teething now and has the bottom two teeth popping out! He's been super grumpy and the nights have been rough. I'll be glad once the teeth break skin!

What to do?

We are constantly looking for ways to invest our money. My retirement is pretty weak and we've been focusing quite a bit on Margot's. Her work has a pretty good program and the contribute annually. We have done fidelity bonds and they've worked well. It's low risk and at the end of the day it's important to have a diverse profile with a little bit of everything.


I really can't believe that Emmy is four years old. I remember being pregnant with her! I look at Graem and her baby pictures constantly. It's just going way too fast. I have so many incredible memories and I'm glad that I've been able to stay at home and enjoy time with the kids.

Happy Mother's Day - part deux

It's almost time for Margot's mother's day! (She gets Father's day since she prefers tools and there are better tool sales for Father's day!) I purchased her the Dewalt DCK492L2! I was able to get a great deal on it. Unfortunately, she found out where it was hidden in the garage! I figure I might as well let her use it. The more tools I get her the faster things around the house can get fixed! Of course, now she wants something else for Mother's Day since she's already seen her gift!

Birthday rescheduled.

We were suppose to have Emmy's birthday party today. Unfortunately, we woke up and it was pouring. We made the decision to reschedule for tomorrow. It just stinks because a handful of her friends can't make it tomorrow. She won't know any difference until after the party.

Cute boy

I think Keane's wardrobe is pretty good til he turns 2! Of course, I'm always on the lookout for good streetwear. I've been able to purchase some cute clothes at Gymboree and Gap. Emmy gets Graem's hand-me-downs and every once in a while I purchase her something new. Graem is getting harder and harder to shop for! She's starting to have opinions. How dare her. I mean she is only seven and has announced that she hates pink.

5 months

Time is flying. It makes me sad that the kids are getting so big! Right now we are in survival mode. Keane has been waking up every hour on the hour at night to nurse. To say the least...I'm EXHAUSTED!!! Margot took Emmy to daycare and what I should be doing is trying to catch up on sleep but I just can't seem to fall asleep during the day. My mind races and I instantly think of all of the errands I have to run, etc. Ugh.
