"Mommy, what is your weal name?" Skyler asked me the other day.

"My real name is Nicole," I answered.

"But what is Daddy's weal name?" he persisted.


Skyler was still not satisfied. "But," he paused, "who is named 'Honey'?"

Our unstable family

Haven't had time to blog lately--we've been feverishly packing up our whole house (for the third time in one year) in preparation to leave for 3 months this summer. We finally launched our trip to Florida this week, breaking the drive into two days (five hours and six hours, respectively).

Even so, it was too long for Seth. On the first evening, he finally had enough. "Mommy," he complained, "we've been driving for ever. When are we going to find a stable?"
