And So It Begins....

Well, I'm back.

Took a break. Gave birth. And now I'm currently enjoying the benefits of having parents who are both retired and are so sick of each other at this point that any external stimuli is a welcome break from sitting across from each other in a sticky booth, watching each other eat platefuls of turnip greens and rice pudding at their local International Super-Duper Buffet.

Their help mainly comes in the form of being extra audience members for my children, whose antics have grown tiresome to me, but Nana and Pop-pop find hilarious. And my dad is very, very good with his intimidation tactics. Why just last night I enlisted his help in making sure my children ate their dinners. He took his duty seriously, and proudly reported that Elsa ate every last bite of hers. Which she  subsequently puked up into the double-stroller 30 minutes later. But hey, Pop-pop got the job done.

Baby Finn....So sweet, so innocent,
so incapable of making fart noises with his armpit and a straw.
This entry won't be long, mainly because I am playing catch up with many things, including cutting my children's fingernails so they don't look like X-Men characters. But I wanted to let you know that Baby Finley Palmer has arrived. And he is perfect. Mainly because he can't sass me yet.

I also wanted to let you know that I plan on blogging a lot in the upcoming months, as I see the potential here for many many many entries.

In other words, I am in big, big trouble.

Stay tuned, dear readers. It's on like Donkey Kong.


  1. congrats to you and your family... Finley is so cute...

  2. Bekah, you are, and always will be, one of my very favorite writers. Thanks for the laugh today. Finley Parker is quite the handsome chap. On like Donkey Kong...I wish I could come up with quips like that! :)

  3. Alas, the only mega buffet around here is deserted and has grass growing through holes in the parking lot.

  4. Finley is a doll! Congrats!

  5. Well, to fit in with your family he better start practicing his fart-blowing techniques pretty quickly! Oh so much to learn young grasshopper :)
