Joey Strikes Again

Joey ran around the morning of his preschool "Picture Day" looking for that little something extra.

And he found it:

The kid makes me laugh every day.  But this week, I needed it more than ever.

Full story here in today's Chicago Parent.


  1. I love these stories, keep em in the memory bank for the future, great to remember what they were like when they are little. My kids love to hear stories about what they did when they were younger! Sadly, I have a hard time recollecting specific ones sometimes!! Now I try to at least write them down.

  2. Annika says that she wants a talking zebra from her boyfriend. Do you have one of those in a closet at your house?

  3. I love these stories too and am grateful you share them with us..

    Love that photo and Joey is such a cutie!

  4. Joey sounds like a special kid. :-). And who wouldn't want tuna for Christmas?

    Hope you and your family have a very merry Christmas!!

  5. Haha! That is so adorable!

    Your post in Chicago's Parent, made me both weep and smile. I just thank the heavens for moments like these, where our kids can still bring a smile to our lips and laughter to our hearts. :)

  6. How could Gretchen ever turn down a guy with a necktie. If this was any cuter I might have melted!

  7. Joey. I will say he is one of a kind.

  8. What a precious kid and appreciative mom! Love all the sentiments in your Chicago Parent article and how you weave life's craziness into your column.
