He played with his little buddies for a couple hours. He didn't mind boiling them at the end of it all, and he kept pace with me eating the meal of lobster in garlic saffron cream sauce over linguine. He's my boy.
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.
