In order to really understand this anecdote, you will need a bit of back story. The Perone family has a bit of a competitive streak. As in, when Adam and I first started dating, he quickly learned to refuse to play Uno with me; he didn’t like that I formed alliances. We play trivia games …

Oh, hey. 2016 is almost over.

Hi! Let’s just ignore that I haven’t been here in a while. Update? The Ludwigs are BUSY! Adam opened a new music studio, Cole is in 2nd grade and active in Hebrew school, gymnastics, Cub Scouts, Nerd Squad, and now diving! Lulu is in preK4 (don’t even look at me at the end of the …

He is only 6.

This is going to be so quick, but it’s too long for a Facebook status update, and must be written down for posterity – so it has dragged me out of this weird unplanned blog retirement. I’m pretty sure world domination is in Cole’s future… A little back story: We have sticker charts for various …

All the Baby Mamas!

I have always wanted to participate in a flash mob. Well, not always, be ever since I knew they were a thing, I knew I wanted to be in one. If I had one SHRED of talent, I would be trying hard to get onto Broadway – I *love* singing and dancing and theater, and …

Back to School

Cole’s first day of kindergarten was yesterday – and we all lived to tell the tale. We took the obligatory first day of school pic: (Grammy Boo opened the door from the inside right after this was taken and Cole fell backwards into the house. Oops!) We waited for the bus: And then I followed …

Five is… I’m not even sure what 5 is yet – Cole has only been 5 years old for a week, and we’re still getting used to it around here. I can tell you what 5 is NOT. Five is NOT a baby anymore. While I could get away with babying my four-year-old preschooler, FIVE …
