DePhoMo #22: I didn’t take a picture today, so you get something from the archives. This is one of my favourite photos of Tempest as a baby, even though it’s not a particularly happy one it’s a pretty accurate reflection of our first six months with her. She suffered with … Continue Reading →


DePhoMo #20 : Since Sunday, the baby has been active every day, throughout the day. It’s like someone flicked a switch to start him up. DePhoMo #21 : This evening my sister came out into the kitchen to talk to me in tears over her mother’s manipulative guilt trip over … Continue Reading →


DePhoMo #17: My father was in a radio production of “It’s a Wonderful Life” all through last week, acting alongside some really fabulously talented people including a woman who was apparently a regular on “Queer as Folk”.

We’ve decided to add a bit of homeschooling into her curriculum to ensure she stays challenged, as much of the work she brings home from school is way below her … Continue Reading →


DePhoMo #8 : Next week Marika’s mom will begin chemotherapy and radiation for as part of her cancer treatment. In support, Marika shaved her head this evening and we did a photo shoot to honour it.


DePhoMo #4 : Curtis snoozing while I stay up late waiting for my pain med to kick in and my leg to stop hurting. DePhoMo #5 : An unintentional theme carries over to the next day when I take photobooth pictures of Curtis sleeping on top of me while we … Continue Reading →
