Quotidian: daily, usual or customary;
everyday; ordinary; commonplace

Channeling our inner Puerto Rican: Buen provecho!




Stale: to be cubed for future baked French toasts.

And that, my friends, is a seriously fluffy ricotta pancake.

Full or empty? (For us, this is getting pretty bare…)

Calm down, hon. It’s just me.

Aaaaand another GoT fan is born.

Holstein versus Jersey.

Bottoms up!

Spring showers.

This same time, years previous: ground beef chili with chocolate and peanut butter, the coronavirus diaries: week four, instead of a walk, kickboxing, caribbean milk cake, a trick for cooking pasta, the quotidian (4.4.16), red raspberry pie, sun days, babies and boobs, working lunches, the quotidian (4.2.12).

    Jennifer I know this is a strange jumping off point but I remember you writing something about one of your kids coming into reading quite late. I am beating myself up as my first grader has still not really learned how to read but I was wondering if you could point me to blog posts you wrote about that?

      So many kids learn to read quite easily by 7 or 8 if you don’t push it too early! Keep reading to him and back off on the instruction, he’s just not ready yet. I have 6, 4 of whom learned to read between the ages of 5 and 7. The other 2? 9 and 3 months, both of them, exactly (and they are not twins). Brains have their own timeline of development, it seems!
