Have you met Giant Gwendolyn?
She stomps and thunders

And she's heading your way to give you tickles

Gwendolyn, You can be anything you want to be...

This is what we did today.
What's more is Gwendolyn demanded it.
In her non-verbal way she let me know she needed snuggles. She needed to hear my heart beat in her ear. She needed my warmth. She needed my comfort. She needed her mother's embrace.
And then she fell asleep.
And I cried.... Read More >>
Yesterday, Gwendolyn had her preschool photo shoot. She took her class picture with all of her school friends and teachers. And then -- just like all of the other kids -- she excitedly took her posed solo shots sitting in her purple tumbleform chair in front of a cheesy faux windowsill setup ...Read More >>
Firstly, thank you all so much for the many birthday wishes. You really made me feel special and cared for -- and your messages, cards, and Facebook posts meant a lot to me (although Bill said I was clogging up his fb feed )!!! I have to say that this may have been the best birthday ever.
