Me and the Space Monkeys.

I’m a writer, illustrator, and the mother of twin nearly one-year-old baby girls. I recently moved from Brooklyn to Pittsburgh.

A series of random observations: I hear birds. It’s raining outside. The babies are napping, but I hear intermittent crying, which means this precious time here at the computer might be coming to an end for now. Our living room is a giant play area. My desk is a mess and covered in art supplies and papers.

My husband and I are Pigeon and Sparrow, respectively. Just because. And the babies are Space Monkeys. They landed on earth May 2013.

This blog is where I come to record observations, think about being a mother, make art, link to interesting articles, and have fun. I try to post once a day. Here’s a watercolor of the babes:

And their father D, the love of my life:


Thanks for visiting! Leave a comment and I’ll respond! I love having conversations on here. And I love learning about other people through their blogs, too. Blogging is amazing.

  1. This is the best thing ever. We are so overdue in being in touch with you about this wonderful visitation you have had. But hope to remedy that soon.

    Meantime, thank you for taking us into the fun, beauty and fatigue of it all.

    Sending you all much love,
    Sarah and Walter

  4. Isn’t it beyond objectionable that NYCers have to move states to get a washer/dryer in their apartments? We think nothing of schlepping en masse in pool shoes and our oldest clothes at our most undignified to wash our dirty laundry in public! Even my granny on ye olde Ireland didn’t have to suffer so much indignity and she had a well outside!

  5. Hello, as a valued reader of my blog, I have nominated you for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award – I love this because it offers a chance to thank people who follow and read your posts (plus there’s very little work required – just to thank and nominate, lol). Of course, I understand if you do not have time or would prefer not to participate, but if you are interested, please follow the link below to see the full requirements for acceptance. 🙂


  6. Hey Sparrow, sorry to harass you but I’m back with another award, lol. This time it’s a Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award so I couldn’t leave you out. I hope this is something you would like to participate in but of course I understand if this is something that is not of interest to you, or if you do not have enough time to participate. If you are interested, please follow the link below.

    • Thank you so much, Lydia!!! I am really happy and flattered! Thank you so much for the mention on your blog! I am definitely going to do these, too, I’m just somehow disorganized about it. This will be my blog project for the weekend! I needed some inspiration 🙂

    • Hi Olivia! We ‘re well. I have to get back to blogging. We moved houses, and I had some freelance work which kept me busy and threw off my blogging schedule. But the babies are growing and changing so much each day I can’t keep up. Time to write some of it down for sure! And catch up on my blog reading, too! Thanks for checking in on me!

      • Oh that’s great! Moving house is stressful at the best of times, never mind with two babies. That’s brilliant that you got some freelance writing work. Hopefully it will keep coming. I’d love a few more gigs. Sorry for being so nosy – a few of my blogger friends went quiet over the summer and I couldn’t help wonder what happened to you all! 🙂
