Life has been busy lately, but I'll get back to regular posting soon. In the meantime, follow me on Twitter (@trishwhimsy), or keep an eye on the Twitter feed on the right side of the page. Even when I don't have time to do a full post, I try to take quick snapshots of the kids on my phone to post there - just click the links that start with "twitgoo."
When I get a chance, I'll update with pictures of our recent Dewberry Farm visit!

Step right up, ladies and gentleman of all ages! I give to you the amazing Mr. Miles, who, at only 2 years 1 month, went poo-poo in the potty his first time doing anything at all in the potty! What a Marvel! What a Stupendous Feat! What a Magnificent Achievement!
Of course, as soon as he stood up, he worriedly gripped my arm, pointed at the potty, and asked, "What DAT?!"
(A long time ago, I came upon oneword.com - a great resource for anyone with writer's block. One Word inspired today's post.)
Setting? The first thing I think about is place settings. I don't know why that comes to mind, really, because we don't even have a proper dining room table. We have a breakfast nook table that is just the right size for the four of us, but if we have anyone else over, we have to use our card table and folding chairs and set them up in the dining room. (That also means moving our breakfast nook table to the dining room, which is a bit of a pain.) Now that I think about place settings, though, it makes me think about all of the beautiful dishes there are out there... Here are a few that make me smile:

Trick-or-treating was a lot of fun this year! Miles actually knew what it all meant, and was able to participate on his own, though he is in a whispering phase and his "trick or treat" and "tay-too" ("thank you") could rarely be heard. Gisèle, of course, marched right up to each door, announced, "We're here!" and said "Happy Halloween!" along with her traditional "trick or treat!" greetings. I think her favorite part, though, might have been handing out candy back at our own house when we got back after our hour of walking. She was so proud to put candy in other kids' buckets!
