The family formerly known as...

It occurs to me that my method of referring to my family is a bit strange when I write about them. I call my sister by her name, and my parents and grandmother by their appropriate titles, but use the same old "D-" for the dear/damned people in my house. And, while those abbreviations are easily understood by all the ladies from my old message board, they also lend themselves to my mis-typing (since "S" and "D" are next to each other on the keyboard, it's easy to create some peculiar stories about my son at ballet class or my daughter learning to pee standing up.) So, I am changing the cast of characters, and shall keep a program on the sidebar. And I promise that I will not use any unpronouncable symbols for anyone.

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
