About LemonpussI am living the dream and staying home to raise my three kids while my wife and I try to renovate our 150 year old farmhouse and keep the grapevines from consuming the house. We are a free-range family, and I spend my days with the kids crafting, gardening, canning fruit, and keeping the peace. Some days I'm lucky enough to fit in a little knitting. (Now with more kindergarten!)

This boy is so much like his sister it is a bit uncanny. The agility, strength, early physical milestones match up. We hung this bar for her because she needed a safe place to dangle. He spends tons of time … Continue reading
Pee in your potty before you get in the tub, boo-boo. Success!
I know that this in no way counts as a blog post, but it is 3:06 am and my baby boy is sick with a cold. He just asked for covers for the first time after 19 months of kicking … Continue reading
My friend and I are trading mornings taking care of each other’s kids. It is so fun having two babies in the house again, even for just a few hours a week. Gotta run – it is full on here!
I put the the three kids to sleep by myself after a long hot hard day. It is 8:47 pm and my mom clearly saw that Margie ‘s car wasn’t in the driveway so she came over and let herself … Continue reading
Truman is enamored with his siblings and his mothers’ clothes and shoes. He clumps around the house in size 8 muck boots that barely squeeze onto his stubby legs. I love this phase.
