Greg Page announced today that he will be leaving The Wiggles due to his chronic health condition. He has passed on his trademark yellow skivvy to Sam Moran, who has been appearing in Greg’s place during his bouts with his illness.

Sam was in the yellow skivvie when we saw the Wiggles Live earlier this month. He was fantastic. We wish Greg the best, and will cheer Sam on in his role as the yellow Wiggle. He’s got some big shoes to fill, but he’s great.

Check out our day’s worth of posts at Play Library in honor of Greg’s departure!

Thankful for….


Today I’m thankful for the walk that Bald Man and I got to take while our kids were hanging out with their grandma, aunt, and great-uncle. An hour or so to ourselves. Very thankful for that time together. Apparently, so was he. 😉

btw-the photo is inspired by Hsien‘s morning walk photo

The Problem

The problem with being good when you’re at the grocery store and NOT buying all the yummy stuff that you know you’ll want when you’re feeling like you need a snack and a little food comfort is that WHEN you’re feeling like you need a snack and a little food comfort—THERE’S NOTHING THERE!

Better for me, anyway, I know. But I have the munchies and am munchiless. Sooooo the end of the world, no doubt.

So much to share…

…just no time to do it tonight. Suffice it to say, life is good.

I can make my baby smile. Is there anything better than that? I love watching him when his daddy tries to make him smile, too. The baby’s eyes just start to glimmer and come alive with a mischevious little rebellion, as if he’s trying to keep from smiling until he just can’t hold back anymore and the smile breaks free from all his resistance and beams through every bit of him. His eyes smile, his cheeks smile, his lips smile, and every bit of him just radiates. I love it.

That’s it. I opened my refridgerator to get a much needed caffeine-loaded soda, zzzzz…..

What? Huh? Oh, sorry, dozed there for a second. Anyway, my mom gives the kids these tiny little flashlights, and one of them was in my fridge. Maybe it was there, to, ummm…sorry, not even a clever little pun is coming to mind.

Sleep deprived. Baby still had a fever last night. He was in bed with us from about 1 am til morning. He couldn’t get good and comfy until his big head (it’s a family trait) was firmly planted on Baldman‘s chest, and his little piggies were niggling into my back. Which, as you know, means no good sleep for us.

But at least his fever is down.
