Mollie is now a teenager. She is beautiful, brilliant, outgoing, funny, creative, irreverent, determined, strong-willed and kind. Not to mention polite and personable with grown-ups. She did her hair in homemade crimps for the occasion by braiding her hair in innumerable tiny braids the night before. The result is a very touchable fluff of boing-boing […]

I don’t understand how it happened, because on my way home on Friday, I said to myself, “Just because there will be pizza, doesn’t mean you have to eat everything in sight.” It started with my arrival home to celebrate my youngest child’s 13th birthday.

Damian is getting chubbier, because he ia a piglet when it comes to eating. He and Elsa are now completely bonded. Despite his seeming viciousness at times, he is definitely the giver in their relationship. He snaps food out of the hand, grunts, growls and thumps in defiance, but he adores Elsa, constantly giving into […]

The bunnies are essentially bonded, with occasional quibbling over food and being sexually harassed (both have been witnessed attempting to mount the other). Had to get a taller x-pen to attach to other tall x-pen, b/c Damian kept jumping over shorter x-pen and getting out when he wasn’t supposed to. Now, they have a double-sized […]
