Broken Glasses Conundrum

As I predicted, my nephew’s glasses didn’t last for long. My husband went to sit on the couch one evening when there was a resounding snap. He reached beneath him and pulled out my nephew’s glasses, which had shattered down the middle completely. I called my nephew over from the dishwasher and gave him a …

As their group passed beneath one final copse of trees, Gunnar had lifted his hands to the sky and shouted, “Behold!” Lorcan’s eyes widened to the size of pudding bowls.

My Son’s Glasses

My son has recently started primary school. After two years of kindergarten, he was so excited to finally become a ‘big boy’ at school, and eagerly dons his uniform every morning. His teachers tell me he’s already made lots of friends, and I’m pleased to report that he seems to be one of the smartest …

Decorating His Room

Decorating my son’s room has been a challenge. I feel like if he was born twenty years ago it would have been so much easier. I could just decorate the room with stereotypical male things and then be done. It would be so easy for me to just stick up some dinosaur wallpaper and be …
