Chicago Cubs Players Weekend

I’m a lifelong Cubs Fan who no longer lives in Chicago. An afternoon at Wrigley Field is always a good time and an important stop during my week in town.

This weekend is Players Weekend complete with alternate uniforms and nicknames!

For the full experience, a Chicago hot dog (mustard, chopped onions, neon green relish, tomato, dill pickle, and NEVER ketchup!) is required.

And the icing on the cake: Cubs WIN!

Snowy Day Puppy

When you’re a puppy and only ten weeks old, everything is a learning experience. Today, with about six inches of snow, Charlie romped and ran making tracks in the forest. Sliding, rolling, and digging joyfully. The only one enjoying it more than Charlie – me watching him. He’s the perfect combination of agile and clumsy; navigating rough terrain at times, and plunging headfirst into snow banks moments later. He truly is poetry in motion.

My morning with a Little Scientist

I spent a couple of hours with my 18 month old neighbor today. If you haven’t had the pleasure of watching a little one explore recently, you don’t know what you’re missing.

Everything fascinates him and his enthusiasm is contagious. Watching a wheel spin, trying to pick up rocks that are too heavy, finding one that’s not and testing the sounds it makes is all part of being a scientist.

Silly is best

Two days after my daughter’s wedding, I saw this quote in a book at Poets House in NYC. As a mother, I’ve always believed it’s my role to impart wisdom and advice as they pursue their dreams. This seems like something worth sharing as I have Paul McCartney’s song running through my mind.
