About Us

There are four of Them: three girls and one boy, little stair-steps all. There are two of Us: best friends, co-parents and truly in love. The Six of us have epic adventures full of laughter and love, occasionally containing tears, but always together.

Guessing...It Works Everytime

Yesterday we went out to dinner. I had a horrible day, culminating with a sobbing breakdown on the phone to Adam, while I was sitting in the garage and the children were playing in the house. Part of the reason I was crying is that I hadn't managed to get together anything for dinner, nor had I managed to even get to the grocery. (It was a long and mangled day, don't ask.)

We went to a chinese place and at the end of dinner we all got fortune cookies. Everyone cracked their cookies open and the readers read their fortunes and the non-readers had someone read to them. Adam had read me Leila's but Elie picked it up and read it out loud. She read "You will be a great ventriloquist later in life."

You can probably guess that this is, in fact, NOT what the fortune read. A few tries later she finally managed to sound out the word that was *really* written on the paper.

"You will be a great philanthropist later in life."
