Days with my father

I came across this site a couple of weeks ago and have been meaning to share it. It's moving. Amazing. Inspirational. Extraordinary.


The photos and story evoke overwhelming emotion.

It makes me wonder what role I'll play in caring for my grandfather who will turn 79 in a few weeks. What role will I play in caring for my own father? It also makes me wonder if Matt, Ethan, and I will have a similar story someday.

We're crazy about this toothbrush. I found it at TJMaxx for less than $10. Ethan has gone from major meltdown when we take him out of the bathtub to nearly asking for bath time to be over so that he can brush his teeth. I ask him if he wants to brush his teeth and he reaches up for me to get him out of the tub. Let me tell you, any help during the after bath skin care/eczema, routine/maintenance is very much appreciated.

The gum massage attachment helps with teething too!
