11 (and a half) months old

Dearest Hatchling,Last Sunday you turned eleven months old. I didn’t get a chance to write your letter on time because of being in the middle of tech week for a show I’m directing, a phrase I’m sure will resonate through your formative years and result in a deep and abiding resentment of all things theatrical.

You wanna know what’s AWESOME?

Good times, Good times.

Now here’s something that’s truly awesome: The […]

Maybe if I post a cute picture, no one will notice that I’m not actually blogging.


Equation for the week

(Parents visiting last weekend + rehearsals ramping up) * Baby erupting with 1 year molars, 2 year molars and upper canines ALL AT THE SAME TIME/no more late afternoon naps = no goddamn time for breathing, much less blogging.

Oh, and: Mr. Squab broke a tooth, and must now make a pilgrimage to the dentist […]

Friday Recipe Blogging

So, I’m from the south. Born and raised in Athens, GA, until I was cruelly uprooted to Minnesota at the tender age of ten when my dad got a job teaching at a small liberal arts school in the middle of nowhere. Now, it’s true that at this point I’ve spent more time living out […]
