On the Feast of Corpus Christi, a day celebrating the True Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, Mason received his First Communion. His excitement leading up to the day was contagious. And afterwards? Once he received the Lord? He couldn’t stop talking about it. He was radiant. Which is what is supposed to happen. I’ve […]
Yesterday was BH’s baptismal anniversary. He planned the menu and had special prayers offered. And got to light his candle. That made him happy. BH, what a special day your baptism was for our family. I hope you always use the grace that was showered on you that day.
My Sweet Baby Hulk, you’re seven now. I can’t even believe that we’re here. But we are, another year has come and gone. And what a great year it was for you. I start with a simple apology of never posting last year’s birthday letter. It’s mostly done, except for the pictures, yet never published. […]
About four years ago a mom came up to me during Bodypump to ask if I was Mason’s mom. Her son and my son were constantly playing together as opposed to side by side in the daycare at Trotter. They were in the middle room back then, only 2 and forming a bond. I hadn’t […]
Not sure why he decided to write a letter, but I find it hilarious that he told the tooth fairy to sign a name.
Right before Sunshine was born, I finally gave myself permission to buy a few clothes for her. Armed with a coupon at Old Navy, I found a few things for her. As we were leaving Baby Hulk found these shoes he wanted to buy for her. To be honest, they weren’t something I would have […]
You know, I really am enjoying Lance and Charlie together. We all had our doubts, but they are good. The show does interfere with life as I knew it. And today was another example…only one Zierlein child was able to dress up properly. This year it was Baby Hulk, or Big Hulk as he wants […]
I took the kids to Baby Hulk’s field trip today. Everyone, particularly Snax had a great time. In fact, he thinks he is part of BH’s K class. The teacher was really cool about the kids being there and helped out with Snax when I was dealing with Sunshine, or Dark Cloud as she was […]
Today was Baby Hulk’s first field trip of the school year. And he stayed home with me. Yes, it makes me happier than anyone can probably realize that he wanted to be with us rather than go on a field trip. After lunch today, I caught him looking at me through the rear view […]
Baby Hulk, Last night I packed your Wookie t-shirt. It’s too small for you. I didn’t put it in the attic for your brother or in the donation pile. It’s yours. But it’s starting to look a bit too short on you. Your dad says it’s time. And it is. Time to move in another […]
