Carson helps his mom with her workouts.
Kyla wrote a really helpful article about why taking care of yourself during/after the loss of a loved one is so important. Read it HERE.
Ky uploaded a new song – give it a listen!
They have arrived! Carson made himself right at home with the Cheerios… I don’t mind that so much – but he has learned to put his own boots on recently. He has also learned that Cheerios being squished under one’s boot makes a very satisfying, crunchy mess. While Mom went out on the town with […]
Terry’s Anthurium has bloomed for the first time since before he died. Kyla gave him this plant when she moved out a few years ago, and he doted on it like it was his child. I had been promising him that I would repot it for months before he got sick again, and I just […]
Kyla recently had a photo shoot for Infinity Wellness (her Personal Training and Life-Coaching business) done by KMT Photography with Carson, a client (Isabeau) and her daughter. How proud am I?! 😉
Wow. Just… Wow. Very soon now… My baby will bring forth her own baby into the world. And… I. Am. In. Awe. His name is Carson Anthony Ward, the already so-much-loved progeny of Kyla Ward (nee Becker) and Colton Ward. I am already in love with him. Carson, that is, not Colton; although as sons-in-law […]
I’m not sure I even know where to begin… I was asleep when the ball dropped – woke up when the kids all called for rides home at the same time. It took me three trips, and I drive a mini-van. That’s a lot of drunken 20-somethings… That old saw about “how you ring in […]
There are things I did as the mother of a toddler, that would totally have embarrassed me to admit, back when my now-all-grown-up little girl was still a toddler. It’s a little embarrassing to admit to those things even now, although she did survive. It’s more surprising that *I* survived, to tell the truth. Ky […]
Case’s Music on Queen St. hosted the 2nd Annual Queen St. Block Party this weekend. I didn’t get to see it all – I was hampered by a 2 hour parking limit with a 15 minute walk to and from the event from the van. Are the days of The Walk-About gone? God, I hope […]
I think if I were to admit my deepest, darkest secret, it would have to be my dream of producing music videos. I have a really fantastic, eloquent sequence for the Cake tune, “Short Skirt, Long Jacket”, but it involves Val Kilmer circa 2001 and a woman stripping on a city street, so somehow I […]
Kyla got a summer job at the YMCA as Camp Coordinator of several of their kids day camps – four of them if I’m not mistaken. FOUR! Not sure how she’s gonna pull it all off, but I do know she has “homework” every night.
