in kitchen, playing with playdough, pretending to be Peter Rabbit and his mother
ELEANOR: Look, Peter, I’m cutting up radishes!
HENRY: Ooh, I love radishes! Where did you get them?
ELEANOR: Kroger.
HENRY: You mean Rabbit Kroger?


at supper table, family talking about numbers
ANDY: So if you had five carrots, and gave me two carrots, how many would you have?
ELEANOR: (thinks) …THREE!
ANDY: That’s right! Good job, Eleanor! You’re really smart.
ELEANOR: It wasn’t ME, it was the MATH!

HENRY: Mom! Mom! We haven’t seen this one in YEARS!

    They are two truly amazing people.

    I love their story-telling. What a beautiful age.

    I just finished reading your reproductive recap and wow. My heart aches for all that you’ve been through. But I’m also so happy that you do have Eleanor and Henry. What a wonderful blessing those two are for you. Best of luck with your upcoming uterine eviction. I’m sure it is very bittersweet – just stay focused on the JOY of wearing WHITE PANTS, whenever you want!!!

    • Thanks so much for the kind words! You’re right that it’s bittersweet…sad that I won’t have many happy pregnancy memories, but so very thankful for Henry and Eleanor. And yes, I will totally be rocking the white now every chance I can!
