Learning to cook … one kid at a time

small style: It’s Fall & Life is Changing October 6, 2011

Filed under: Small Style — gastromami @ 7:17 am

All of the sudden it got cooler out

There was one day of that “hint of Fall” in the air and then


Sweaters, cider, chili & the promise of

Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas

I have to admit that an election-less Fall makes me both thrilled to enjoy this time

moseying along with my kids, stopping at Starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice latte

and sad that the knocking on doors, shaking the hand of a Clinton, marching in parades & crazy hours

seem both so far away and so far off

(I love election years ūüôā

But, alas, Fall made its big announcement about a week before the cold hit

(and no, it wasn’t the fact that Starbucks brought back my favorite drink)


“They’re Baaaaaaack!”

And so, although I love the smack-dab-in-the-middle-of-the-hustle&bustle big city livin’

We are headed (still in The City) to another part of town

Where the house is our own and we aren’t just an apartment where the mice venture because everyone else has an animal

(I’m sure it has nothing to do with the toddler dropping food everywhere)

And we will be living the big-city American Dream:  3 whole bedrooms and,

wait for it,

A Yard!

(well a small paved outdoor area but we can have a grill again!)

So whether Fall announced itself with little rodent friends or a warm Ican’treallyaffordit drink

it is most definitely up on us and I was woefully prepared

Thank goodness for Sanus Baby and their current 50% off everything sale when I desperately needed a hat for Miss Fiona

Now, if I could only figure out where Ren’s old 6-12 month leather shoes are … those poor toes

On Fiona:

Hat:  Sanus Baby

Sweater:  Koala Kids

Pants: Tea Collection

Socks:  Trumpette, gifted

    Congrats on the new house! YAY! I’m jealous that you’re getting away from the mice…we are still battling the ants, every day a new ant-killing-spree. Ick.
