Lanette’s Blog: Do It

I have a six-year-old, a four-year-old and a two-month-old… and I did it. I signed myself up and I even showed up — to my first ballet class in 25 years. Dance was something I did for the first 18 years of my life and I loved it. When I

Lanette’s Blog: My Brood

Okay then… I’ve been back for three weeks now. My family has gotten back into a routine. Imogene goes to sleep somewhere around 6:00, and will give me a good four or five hours before she wakes up to eat again. And when she wakes up, she doesn’t cry. It’s

Lanette’s Blog: My Heartsong

It’s been six weeks that I’ve been able to say I have a daughter and it really has been a dream. And it started out that way even as we were checking in for her delivery. It was a 3:30AM alarm which was my same ol’ morning show alarm. We

Lanette’s Blog: And Then There Were Five

This blog was to be posted after I became a mom of three. So… seeing that’s probably the case, you can bet on the fact that I haven’t gotten much sleep but am happy as heck to not be pregnant anymore. It was so hard to wait for this little

Lanette’s Blog: Summer’s Here (Almost)

SUMMER!!! It’s not technically here until next week, but this weekend, the heat and humidity are a-comin’. Don’t hate me, but I love this weather. I like sitting in a chair on the deck with a popsicle in this weather. But I won’t be willingly running a 5K when the

Lanette’s Blog: The Last Weeks of School

The last few weeks of school, in my memory, were always filled with fun and excitement. Your schedule had nothing to do with math and everything to do with cleaning up the room and final memories with that teacher. But man … now I have an insane amount of appreciation

Lanette’s Blog: Eight Weeks!

We had a family wedding this past weekend. My brother and his family came in from Boston, and it was a great week together.  Lots of time with people we don’t always get to see, too! And with most hugs came the question: “So, how much time is left until

Lanette’s Blog: Achoo!

It’s been the ultimate “do as I say, not as I do” week. Dealing with a cold is not what I had time for. Instead of getting the sleep and taking it easy that I tell my boys is best, I had a week with tons to do and lots

Lanette’s Blog: Three Months to Go

Three months to go until Little Miss Imogene will join our testosterone-filled family. Twelve weeks … 90 days … 2,160 hours … but who’s counting? Oh, how I’d love to be one of those women who loves being pregnant. But I am definitely not. I am very lucky and I

Lanette’s Blog: Family Movie Day

The movie Wonder is finally available to rent, so we got it over the weekend. We built a huge fort in the living room with blankets and couch cushions and stocked it up with cups filled with Arnie Palmers (iced tea and lemonade) and bowls filled with popcorn and Goldfish
