Happy New Year!

We just completed our first decade as parents. Jack was born in January 2000. Hard to believe that it was ten whole years ago that I was sitting on my old big green couch in Jamaica Plain with a huge belly full of baby...a baby that was kicking like crazy. We had no idea what we were in for, but we were absolutely giddy with excitement.

What a wild ride it's been.

Hmmm...Smells Like Murphy's Spirit

Overheard from the under the comforter this morning....

After Tom is done telling Murphy whether he will be able to play a video game or not, Murphy replies:

"Oh yeah, you're the parent. Sometimes I forget and think of you as my 40 year old brother."

Word, Murphy, word.
