The Juhostler Chronicles

digital age baby book for the Juhola - Ostler Family

Just putting some ideas in the ideas machine.

Just a couple kids hanging on the cool kitchen tile and eating a snack. Check in went great today - with every visit the doc is more confident the tumor is benign and is less inclined to remove it. He was very clear that such positive inclinations are a rarity in his line of work. Life is good!

Cash, the bug & slimy things whisperer. He’s constantly moving piddle bugs, worms and other such insects around the yard putting “families” together. Tomorrow we have our periodic check in with the orthopedic oncologist. I know in my heart of hearts that it’ll be procedural and easy and No Big Deal but still have that tiny bit of panic at the What Ifs. Going to downplay the doctor visit and up play a visit to the butterfly pavilion. For both of us.

Yesterday the boys went to camp grammo buppo and Matt and I had a day of fun. I sure do love that man. Bike riding, soccer, scrabble, margs and then the SADDEST movie on earth at the coolest new theatre. If I’m going to ugly sob through an entire movie I’ll do it in reclining chairs with a glass of red wine in hand. #faultinourstars


Last night I had the kids to myself. It’s always great to get some 1 on 2 time with them. And then Beau projectile vomited into that pile of leogs and stuck his hands in his dirty diaper and was less than careful where he put those hands. I was getting pretty cocky about my solo parenting skills - thanks for keeping it real, guys.

Best 4th of July eve ever! Hike in the morning then a day date with this handsome fellow. Pottery painting, pool and pasta dinner! Feeling ever so fortunate for these special moments with just the two of us.

As I was taking this picture I said to myself “this couldn’t possibly end badly!”. And then, spoiler alert, it totally did. Everyone is fine. Just a little tussle in the gravel. Nothing kisses and cherries couldn’t fix.

say whaaaaat?!
