Toddlers + silence = they found and consumed the basket of Easter candy to be doled out over the next week. I'll be offline for a while to deal with the looming maelstrom of sugar high. [The babbling I heard but didn't understand was my son saying 'no more candy...no more candy' as he checked all the eggs.]
I'm a suburban woman on a quest for the simple life on our 10 acres in the Fingerlakes region of New York. I am living the dream and staying home to raise my two kids while my wife and I try to renovate our 150 year old farmhouse and keep the grapevines from consuming the house. We are a free-range family, and I spend my days with the kids crafting, gardening, canning fruit, and keeping the peace. Some days I'm lucky enough to fit in a little knitting.
