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.

Pictures like this stop me in my tracks. I also think that had the DNA turned out a tad different, he would have made a magnificent Clara.
I just told the Bigs that when they were Truman’s age they had barely watched TV EVER, but they were, all three, so engrossed watching the Peanuts Christmas special no one heard me.
Hell hath no fury like a girl with a crayon. When crossed, my daughter draws furious Maman Interdit signs. At least this time Margie made the cut with me. As another sign of burgeoning independence, Griffin got on the school … Continue reading
