round about: floating donuts & diy tea parties

Thumbnail image for round about: floating donuts & diy tea parties

Sometimes at the end of the week, the outcome can surprise you. I thought it was just an average week. But thanks to a slightly lighter workload, and a flipped daily schedule (due to Birdie’s day camp), the two of us girls actually spent the week with a ton of quality time. So much so, that […]

What a week! I think I celebrated my 40th birthday about as best as I possibly could. And being on the other side of it, 40 isn’t bad at all. I’m doing just fine. Plus, it’s the perfect excuse for everyoe to tell me how young I look, which I’ll take – even if it’s […]

Thumbnail image for round about: kid car hacks & virtual summer camps

We’re in the thick of it now, aren’t we? Summer camps, summer road trips, the boredom of our children, the hot sun, and all those other summer things that keep us occupied. And yet our regular lives are still there demanding our attention too: workloads, house cleaning, to-do lists, and responsibilities. Why is it every […]

round about: little baby nests & rubber ferris wheels

Thumbnail image for round about: little baby nests & rubber ferris wheels

I think the problem with being a grown up in the summer is that you really just want to be a kid again. No responsibilities, no schedule, no clocks. Nothing to stop you until twilight. That’s got to be the reason why, every summer, I find myself wishing I could just stop working until September. […]

Due to some unfortunate problems with some links I once posted in this weekly round about, I’m changing things up a bit.  Things are going to shift – at least for now. Let’s try a round about of crafty DIYs that tickled my fancy throughout the week. I’m always finding new things I want to try, […]

Maybe this summer I can convince Birdie that painting all the sticks is a worthwhile project. I really really hope so. Or I may have to do them all myself. Image thanks to Molly Goldberg.

Well, it’s been a week. I’ll give you that much. I’m still rather stunned that it’s summer. I know I shouldn’t be, the calendar doesn’t lie. Maybe I’ve just been too busy to keep up with it? I think that might be it. Whatever the reason, I”m going to keep this short so I can […]

I swear I only realized yesterday evening that June is merely 3 days away. And even then, I was surpirsed it was a “week” away, then looked at the calendar and realized that wasn’t even true! I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but around here, May seems to be the month where […]

It’s been an amazing week at Small for Big “headquarters”. We have a new fur baby, and getting to know her is taking all kinds of interesting turns. Meanwhile, Birdie has become so obsessed with earthworms that when I picked her up from school yesterday she was keeping two of them in her sweatshirt pocket as […]
