I Am a Genuine, Honest-to-Gosh Writer

By KJ / Tuesday, October 11, 2005

I have finally grown comfortable enough with the possibility of rejection and with the growing body of words from my tap-tapping little fingers to confide that i am writing a novel. In fact, recent word count has me at 41,481 words. Many of them are deeply crappy words, certainly, but still words. Absolutely words, all mine. I suppose I’m partly ok with sharing this because a) I am not going to tell you what it is about, I don’t do […]

The Writing Front

By KJ / Wednesday, October 5, 2005

A couple of months ago I sent out an essay–actually at an editor’s request, a first for me. I proposed an article on how former professionals, now stay-at-home moms, rarely just stay home–they usually do something to stay sane, too. She thought it sounded more like an essay than an article. Writing essays to order is always tough, and this one fought hard. I finally sent it out just because I coudn’t get it any farther and it seemed pretty […]

Big News and Excuses (and Too Much Information for Dad)

By KJ / Tuesday, October 4, 2005

We’ll be adding a third devil to the pack in March. I couldn’t blog about it until I told my mom, now, could I? And I couldn’t tell my mom without some good concrete info about a due date, and I couldn’t get good concrete info about a due date without an ultrasound, and I couldn’t get an ultrasound until they managed to squeeze me into their insanely busy schedule. Why no pre-existing info about a due date? Because my […]

Words, Many Words and More from Lily

By KJ / Thursday, September 1, 2005

Today Lily took a tube of toothpaste and pretended to squeeze it out onto her arm and rub it in. So I guess I’ve been putting enough sunscreen on her. She’s repeating words, and using lots on her own, like shoe and backpack (which started with Dora but also applies to backpacks in the real world, and which is doubly funny because one of Sam’s words at this stage was “Clue!”). She understands so much–bring me the bowl, bring me […]

Sam feeds the goats.

By KJ / Wednesday, August 24, 2005

Sam feeds the goats., originally uploaded by kjda. First time he’s been so brave. This was particularly gratifying (to him, but both of us, really) because his best friend Joey, usually much braver than Sam, refused to let the goats eat out of his hand. Instead, he threw the food at their faces and ran like crazy. He later found a nice bunny to eat out of his hand. (Take that, Joe! Your son’s only brave enough for bunnies! So […]

On Toys and Plane Travel, Among Other Things

Sam was helpless in the face of the dogs. They’d knock him over, take his food, and kick sand in his face for good measure. Lily is already trying to whack them in the nose if they come anywhere near her when she’s eating something–or, like tonight, biting pieces off of a cucumber and then spitting them out. I never said she wasn’t weird, just that she’s assertive. Sam built some sort of bridge out of plastic wine glasses tonight, […]

You Gotta Have Teeth

One of my favorite mental mulling topics: things that everyone has to do, no matter how rich they are. I kept thinking, well, get up with a baby, but I suppose that’s not really true–you can hire someone to do that for you, even though I honestly (full frontal judgement here) don’t think that you should. But I digress. (Someone has to have a blog with that name, don’t they?) Today’s everybody has to do it: the dentist. No matter […]

You Say It’s Your Birthday…

By KJ / Saturday, July 23, 2005

I am not feeling particularly chipper on this, the anniversary of my birth. We had a good day. Rob took the kids grocery shopping this morning, giving me a bit of time, and then we met a few friends at a BBQ festival, where we got to eat a lot of charred, sauce covered pork, which is one of my very favorite things. It would have made a fine Saturday, but for some reason, it was a bit of a […]

Mice Are SO Not My Department

By KJ / Tuesday, July 12, 2005

Sam and I were cleaning out the car today, while Lily climbed around among all the debris we’d removed from our own little Tobacco Road. I was clearing receipts, wrappers and toy bits from the front console and Sam was vacuuming Lily’s car seat when, over the roar of the wet/dry vac, I hear “Something’s really scaring me, Mommy!” There’s an undertone of panic, and I move fast. On the ground, in front of the vacuum I see a small, […]

The Flaming, Defiant Role Model

By KJ / Friday, July 8, 2005

I was listening to some of my backlogged This American Life in the car, driving down to Boston and back to get Trixie (because I am an NPR geek, and my ipod contains TAL episodes, one audio book by Anne Lamott and two by Sarah Vowell, plus miscellaneous music which I almost never listen to). The particular episode that caught my attention featured Seattle writer and syndicated sex columnist Dan Savage talking about a kid he’s particularly admired in high […]

It was Sam’s annual check-up today, an event he’s been preparing for by reading Blue’s Check-up and conducting mock doctor’s appointments for months. He enjoyed himself vastly as they checked his vision and his hearing , weighed him, measured him and produced, as promised, an otoscope and a stethoscope. He was most pleased, and reasonably charming. Until the medical student and doctor exited, and the nurses arrived. They tried to be nice. One, a gregarious, gigantic guy named Kevin, was […]
