barretmckay what happens when you eat all your dinner - giant muscles!!! by whatever means necessary at this point to get him to eat dinner. cause im not a fan of the nickname "snackson" or of wasting food. #saxonjames 3w

barretmckay love this photo that saxon took while out to lunch. kinda sums up our family at the moment...linc clinging to me (and hiding that nutso chin bruise) in his banana pants, ash laughing and telling sax to knock it off or we are going home and sax ignoring everyone and doing what he wants and knowing how to use my phone better than i do and me just giving up and drinking my wine. love these weirdos. #thecannery #freshlypicked #saxonjames 1mon

Perpetua barretmckay
barretmckay remember that one time you tried to show lincoln how to ride the skateboard on his knees and you hit a crack and flew forward and your chin and knuckles ate cement and your sunglasses punched you in the face? yeah me neither because i was too busy yelling at my husband for laughing so hard i thought he was going to burst his spleen. seriously i almost divorced him then and there. linc, lets go inside and draw funny pictures instead, i'm waaaay better at that. #thatsnotagoattee 1mon

barretmckay "does it feel different, being four?" "yes!" "what does it feel like?" "it feels happy." i wished for silly, for a happy, healthy, goofy, sweet little human and i got it all and then some when they whispered "it's a boy". then we brought him home and he pooped all over us and we ran around bumping into each other completely clueless and klutzy and delirious. and we have been that way ever since...ha! love you with all my heart saxon james. 1mon

barretmckay thing about rainboots is they only keep your feet dry...and thats not rain its dirty carwash water. i think. not captured: laying down on bellies and slurping up "soup".. then this mom had to call puddle time quits. #barf 2mon

barretmckay this was important enough to write down but i have no idea what it means...last night was that much fun. trip to ojai could not have been better...the ojai rancho inn was everything and more. i met @joyarose whose work i greatly admire and only sort of embarrassed myself, relaxed with my husband, played all day outdoors, ate and drank as much as possible, connected with old friends and laughed the entire time. best. trip. ever. #ojairanchoinn #whatkids #palosanto 3mon

Nashville barretmckay
barretmckay ojai has been quite the adventure...rev. kate said the spirit guides implied i had a good sense of humor, which was necessary given the reading she gave me...and some how i left having spent saxons college tuition on magic crystals...there may or may not have been lots of drinking on this trip...#lovethistrip #happybirthdaytome 3mon
