Greetings, friends, It's winter in CT now. This is the start of the family's annual deep dark depression saddled with multiple attempts to escape to better climates. Good thing I'm here to entertain everyone. Here's what's been going on the past 3 months: In case you didn't see it on my mom's social media (eye-roll), … Continue reading 1 year, 6 month Pook: An Update from Charlie
Dear Charlie, I'm transitioning to quarterly updates now, rather than monthly. Primarily because I spend the majority of my time chasing you and preventing your demise.

I'll probably … Continue reading 8 Month Pook – A Letter to Charlie
Hey friends, Pook here. Just checking in to dish about life right now, because it's great. I started music classes this month, where I continue my attempts to convince everyone that I'm a turd. Momma makes sure I nap and eat immediately before, to no prevail. Nice try, Mom. Swim classes are bad. Ass. … Continue reading 7 Month Pook: An Update from Charlie
I never assumed staying at home with a baby would be easy. But lordy. Staying at home with a baby is hard AF. For real. I've been incredibly fortunate to not only have the ability to have a baby, but also have the opportunity to stay home with this Pook as long as I wanted/needed.
