The Wink is a labor of love, occasional source of ire and constantly influenced by the toddlywinks in my life- my daughters. There's also the HunkyWink. You'll read all about them as The Wink unfolds. Please feel free to wink back!

So you know:

If you listen, there's wisdom in them thar kids:

Avery's take:

"But super heroes don't wear underwear!"

"You gotta pee first so the poop can go in different water."

Briar wisdom:

"He's not died, he just can't hear very well."

"I want to get married twice: once to dad and once to another somebody."

Finley smarts:

"No."

"Ai sayuh I doe-wanna!"

Seanisms:

"I am wary of being too perfect."

So you see, surrounded by this kind of brilliance, I am the best kind of super hero*.

It does not go without saying

Three kids. Girls. As different as they are the same.

Investigating.



Commanding.



Wooing.



Together.



Every which way.



Feisty.



Flirtatious.



Daring.




Darling.



Wondering.



Wondrous.



I snap—



And snap—



And snap some more—



I never quite get it, never truly capture this perfect chaos that I am living,
but I do get it. I've been growing a life.







It is bittersweet bliss and I am grateful every day for it.

Well hello there, Ken

I talk a big talk about how hard Barbie has it in our house. I was puttering around the house the other day and happened past the computer. I did a double take as at first glance it appeared that Ken was doing something very different than one might expect from a decidedly anatomically-incomplete Ken doll.
