Surrounded by junk.

We need to reconsider how we use "treats" for our children, both as parents and community members. They are cheap and widely available. Most commodities with that description would be less valuable and less demanded than the sugar and junk food we surround ourselves with on a constant basis.

This is an excellent article that discusses the problems with offering "treats" to our children for anything and everything they do.

My dancing partner

Here he is. Please welcome Henry Harper Parcell. He came March 11 by "urgent" induction. No fun for mom, but his fluid levels were low. Made him a bit dehydrated but he still weighed 8 pounds 5 ounces!

I'm having a wonderful time with him. We'll get ourselves back in good form and ready for class in no time!
