Do you believe in the equilibrium/disequilibrium theory of child development?

I do.


I wonder if adults experience the same?


(Two pretty girls and a pretty big brother against a pretty backdrop of greenery.)

If so, then I’m definitely in a period of disequilibrium right now.

Nothing I do seems to be working very well. And I can’t seem to make my goals happen.

Two steps forward, one step back. Just like a toddler who screamed most of the morning.

I’m definitely not in a pretty phase at the moment.


Although I did discover a recipe for “Minimalist Bread”.  And it’s so super simple that even *I* can’t screw it up. It’s so yummy.

The boys think that every person resembles an animal. And they say Victoria is a mouse.

Does she have a future as a Mouseketeer?

One of the best live shows I ever saw, circa 1993, with Social Distortion opening.

Did I ever tell you that I just recently found out that the Ramones weren’t actually brothers?

I’m a little slow.

    Things always turn around, isn’t that part of the theory? Your kids are lovely, and I agree, she is a little mouse.

    I was a punker in the ’90s but I never saw the Ramones. I did see Social D headline, though!

    I always think it’s funny that we adults have good days and bad days and ups and downs but can’t figure out that kids do too!
    Thanks for joining!
