Sometimes life doesn't go according to plan. Sometimes you find yourself on a road you never imagined you'd travel. Sometimes it can scare the pants off you. This is the story of how our little family came to be, continues to grow and how we (attempt to) manage the chaos.

Tot-Hoarders: A New Show Coming Soon!
I hosted an intervention this morning. Esen goes through stages of obsessions, this is not new. Currently, it is "making" money and "writing" books. He has been storing said creations in a large plastic tote in our living room for weeks now.
With the tote overflowing, it was time to finally sort the hoard. He, of course, did not want to part with anything at all, but with some discussion, compromise and not a single tear shed, we managed to get through the entire pile.
Sorting took a looooong time and some wonderful, long lost treasures were found!
We had LOTS for the recycle bin, too!!
We managed to get the super-important stuff to keep down to a very manageable stack of 'money' and a very manageable stack of books. I'm so proud of my little hoarder today!
