The New Digs

I think it's official, although it still makes me nervous.
How it Fits has moved here.


So there's this other blog I'm playing with.

Shhhhh. . . Don't tell Blogger.


Happy 300th!

Apparently, you're supposed to do something exciting when you post your 100th post. Being the clueless young blogger that I am, I missed that milestone. So in honor of the 300th How it Fits post, Naiah Cadence shall make her fabulous debut as a comic strip character.

Happy 300th!

Comic design: Jason and the iMac
Fallish photography: Rebecca
Glamor in pink boots: Naiah

The End

Pray for Malachi

Roxanne has a tiny friend named Malachi, who is 14 months old. Malachi was just diagnosed with AML, the same disease God 'smote' for Aaron Boydston and his family, despite the gruesome odds. Please pray that God would deliver Malachi, just as he delivered Aaron.

Ummm. . .

I Have Crossed Over

You know you're podunk when you see quail running around the parking lot and think, "Oooh, free meat!"

The Handyman

Naiah (18 months) brought me a Stanley screwdriver she had found.

She said, "Papa." (Papa is the kids' name for my dad.)

I said, "This is a tool, a screwdriver. It's Daddy's."

Naiah: Daddy's?

Me: Yes. This is Daddy's tool.

Naiah: Papa.

Me: No, it's Daddy's.

Naiah: Daddy's?

Me: Yes.

Naiah: No. Papa.

Me: Daddy's.

Naiah: Papa.


Adventure Time

Nathan Stryker linked to this on his blog. So random. So fun.



At the dinner table, as Sarah picks at her pizza. . .

Jason: Uh-oh, Sarah. I think Sissy is getting bigger than you.

Sarah: What?

Anna: But we're both twins!

Me: Yeah, but if you eat lots of food, and Sissy only eats a little food, you'll grow bigger than Sissy.

Anna: I will?

Sarah: Really?

Jason: Really.

Anna: Sissy, you can have my pepperoni. And my sausage. You can eat all of my meat.
