A couple of updates on Delta Chapter

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Thank you to everyone who has responded off-blog to me about the situation at Delta Chapter. Like many people, I remember my college years with great fondness and Delta Zeta was a huge part of that. It seems that some people are finally catching on to the media’s role in this debacle, and a special […]

Delta Zeta at DePauw

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

Although my first instinct was to hold my tongue and let this maelstrom pass, I can no longer refrain from commenting on what has transpired in the past few months at the Delta Chapter of Delta Zeta on DePauw University’s campus. I am an alum of DePauw and of Delta Chapter, and I am saddened […]

MySpace Displays its Ignorance Yet Again…

Monday, February 26th, 2007

My pal over at CrunchyDomesticGoddess let me know about this latest blunder from MySpace…Apparently the powers that be have removed a very discreet picture of a nursing mama and threatened her with deleting her account if she continues to post pictures. The charge? It “violates MySpace policies against nudity and sexually suggestive images.” Excuse me? […]

Red Carpet Review!

Monday, February 26th, 2007

If you’re anything like us, you were glued to the television last night to watch the stars walk the red carpet and receive their Oscars. Matt attended the event in his usual haute couture: Polka-dotted Gap PJ bottoms & long-sleeved t-shirt, while I was looking lovely in my mauve heart PJs by Old Navy 😉 […]

Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary

Thursday, February 22nd, 2007

Today is my darling husband’s 32nd birthday. It is also the 11-year anniversary of the day we met. That’s right. Eleven years ago today, I took an all-night train from Munich to Paris, expecting to do nothing more than eat a quick meal and head to bed in the student hotel my study-abroad program had […]

An interesting day…

Wednesday, February 21st, 2007

Today was an interesting day. It started with Gabriel attempting to plummet head-first down the stairs. I was a few steps further down the stairs and had that horrifying moment of indecision about whether it would be better to drop Lily to catch Gabriel or to watch as he tumbled down the stairs. Luckily, I […]

New category: Entertainment

Tuesday, February 20th, 2007

I’m conducting a psychological experiment on myself: Is it in fact possible to guilt oneself into reading more and watching more movies simply by creating a category to comment on books and movies in one’s blog? We shall see. This is different than my attempt to disprove the assertion that it is impossible to tickle […]

Seven of Gabriel’s Favorite Things

Tuesday, February 20th, 2007

I never thought I’d be so in love with talking to my little boy that I’d actually pick up a pen and write down what he said. Yesterday we were playing in his room and he started making a pile of books. I was about to praise him for picking up, but decided instead to […]

Nursing Acrobatics

Saturday, February 17th, 2007

Nursing a mobile baby is an entirely different experience than nursing an infant. Not only do you have teeth to consider (although neither Lily nor Gabriel are huge biters!), but lately I’ve noticed that Lily feels most comfortable trying out new acrobatic moves when she has her favorite snack close at hand! Tonight she was […]

My evil plan succeeded!

Friday, February 16th, 2007

Well, it took several weeks, but my post about brother John calling me a freeloader finally served its evil purpose: My brother finally visited my blog!!!! He claims that he doesn’t remember ever calling me a freeloader, and in his defense, he is very supportive of his wife, Amy, staying home with their baby girl […]
