On Catching Up

I keep thinking what a great idea it would have been to use a different ink color for each child in my journals so they could easily skim through and find the bits relating to them, but then maybe a treasure hunt every now and again is a good idea, too.

Ty has passed four stones in the past two weeks, so we're headed back to radiology for a scan to see just how many are left and just how big they are. Poor guy, he's been moaning since Friday.

Mr. O's mom is recovering from a particularly difficult winter. This is but the tip of an iceberg. The kids are old enough that I feel I can no longer update here and respect their privacy. Maybe what I need to do is lock things down or go back to handwritten journaling because I don't want to miss out on recording these memories.

Le big, fat sigh. I will say, though, that Ellie is becoming a wonderful reader.

If you can remember, I had to go private for awhile because my kids were taking heat from classmates that would search their names on the internet and all of my blog stuff would come up... so sad. I think we're good now (for awhile at least). Good luck!

I'm sorry about Ty. Why can't you guys and him just catch a break? gah

Kid privacy is hard to negotiate sometimes. My kids are getting to be that age too. On the one hand, I don't really use our last name on the blog, so the can't be found through an internet search. On the other hand, we're not in the witness protection program so it's not exactly difficult to figure it out. Mostly I've just taken things down when they've asked me to. Journaling by hand just sounds so brutal now.
