Dear Neglected Book Blog, How long has it been? 7 months? Yes, I apologize.

The last cat, I'd explain, was feral. We'd been mis-led about this cat and I was certain that most… Continue reading The Kids Room: Another New Cat
My 6 year old's life ambition is to become a knight. He wants to battle bravely and ride a loyal steed to protect his kingdom. He's created an alter-ego dubbed The Green Knight, who stars in all of my son's stories and songs. We wanted our son to have a memorable 6th birthday and we… Continue reading The Dining Room: Medieval Times
