It sounds like a fabulous trip. I haven't been to Montana but I have been to Wyoming and I remember the scenery out there being just spectacular. Do we get to see pics (even if they don't do it justice)?


Hi- Montana sounds.....remote! Which doesn't sound like a bad vacation to me.
I see you link to my site. I just wanted to say hello and tell you I feel for you dealing with having an only child. I hope that's not offensive from me, since I did finally get the second one. I haven't forgotten those feelings though, and my heart goes out to you.


I thought that sometimes God does give you more than you can bear, or at least more than you thought you could bear.

---> S/He does. Suicide and addiction are evidence of that.

Oh, ad the belly lip over the jeans? it's here, too, in the West. On one hand, I think it's great that these girls arn't puking their brains out to look Paris Hilton hott. On the other, ewww.


I love that your son loves listening to Harry Potter and Beverley Cleary on tape. He sounds so great.

Completely agree that God is in no way taking what we can bear into account in allocating pain. It's just one of those things people say that make no sense whatsoever when you give it a couple of seconds' thought. The diner story is so moving.

I love hearing from you. Don't go on vacation again.

I am going camping in Montana in August. You just got me so excited for our trip. Thanks!

If you are looking for all the small families you just have to come to NY. Cost of living, space...onlies are everywhere. I live in LA now and there are more 2 kid families here than in NY but you never see more than 2 in my neighborhood and there are still lots of only children. When I went to visit some family in the midwest recently I was struck by 2 things; How big the people were and how big the families were. It was not unusual at all to see families with anywhere from 3 to 6 kids. But then again my family outside Sait Louis own a 4 bedroom house on almost an acre of land for about the same price as my friend's studio in Park Slope. And of course they don't have to lug their 4 kids under 8 onto the subway or figure out how to pay for private school. It is a differnt life on so many levels. This country is so diverse it amazes me sometimes.


Montana is beautiful! A State I would consider moving to, except, y'know, being a Democrat and all, I'd be too scared to leave the house.

On that same cross-country trip, my best friend and I stopped for breakfast at a Perkins in....Nebraska. I've never actually been in a place where everyone studiously pretended they didn't want to stare at me, the only chocolate chip in the shortbread, if ya know what I'm sayin'. Come to think of it, the same thing happened at McDonalds in Wyoming...

Still, it's prettu country!
