year four? really?

Yes, it’s my blogiversary. Time for my annual redesign, and for my year-in-review post. Salud!

First, let’s get started with a little reminiscing about the Potato’s destructive tendencies. I have to say, he’s gotten a lot better about this in the past year (knock wood).

Then, of course, I hosted my first Carnival of Feminists.

Shortly thereafter, I wrote about my family’s need to communicate via the printed word.

I spent a bunch of time last year filled with anxiety about two things: my pending term as PTA president, and my need to get a copy of the 7th Harry Potter book without being spoiled. Parental anxiety was also the topic of this post about my dreaming fears, and this post about my waking ones..

As far as the kids went, the Bee started learning some complicated math and the Potato learned to make complicated noises. We all continued to learn together how to fight without nuclear (family) destruction. We went on a fabulous family vacation. The Bee started third grade, and had a slightly difficult period of adjustment.

This was also the year that I started using social networking sites using my real name, and having some concerns about that. I got a sneak peek of what my life will be like when the Bee hits puberty. And a hint that we might have done something right in raising her.
