About Me


I am a stay-at-home psychologist, privileged to have the opportunity to analyze my three little peppers full time. It’s a pleasure.

I don’t keep a journal.  I will never scrap book.  I never print pictures and don’t do photo albums.  Our children have no baby books.  So the fastest way for me to capture the days before they get away is blog entries.  This is for family to see and our memories to hold.

    I just read through your blog. It made me laugh so hard- especially the pictures of Patience and the rubber band snow suit. Precious!

    I have missed several weeks and had a wonderful time reading about the peppers today. I just know this would have motivated even Susie to use the computer if she were still with us. Love you all. Is my name and e-mail permanently posted on the “about” section of your blog or is that just because I am on my computer (I take after Susie when it comes to computers)?

      It’s just because you are on your computer. I get so excited when I have a comment. Thank you!

    Saw your post on MVMOM so came to check it out- you do a GREAT job documenting your children’s lives. You will look back on this down the road and will love it even more.

    Just a side note- that should you decide to create a book for your kids- does books and will import your blog, and turn it into a book! It’s my “someday” plan for my own personal family blog 🙂

    I am making ginger chicken soup this week- I figure surely if Lucy has time for a new recipe each week I do too-besides, when the girls at work asked Polly if I was a good cook she said, “yes but she cooks the same thing all the time.” Thia was after she burst into laughter when they asked me to teach them a cooking class. Three Little Peppers is a highlight of my week. If you have to give up something please don’t make it blogging. Love you all.

    I got out of bed slowly (as is my custom), made the coffee and then had to make a decision whether to check the blog or go weigh myself. I thought which will bring joy and light into my day? Here I am, Mama

    I’ve been meaning to check out your blog ever since I saw your link to it on Facebook, and I finally did today. I’ve loved reading it. I love all your stories. I have three boys (ages 4, 3, and 9 months) and can totally relate to many of your stories. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, my. Not only is Mother Lucy a great writer, but so is Elizabeth. How many little ‘uns have dialogue for their future novels popping out at opportune moments??

    Lucy, checked out your blog today, thanks to a suggestion from Jacy H. The kids are super cute and your entries are hilarious! I have decided whenever I need a smile and a good laugh I’ll check you out.

    Dear Lucy,
    We met very briefly at Partner Day last month; my husband Jonathan was a student of Dan’s at Minnehaha. We were thrilled to receive Dan’s email announcement a couple weeks ago, which led me to your blog. I daresay I’ve read every post and am so delighted by your charming family! The Prayers for Families have been especially meaningful – our first child is due in November.
    In another fun connection, I graduated from Wheaton in ’09, where I met George, who once literally gave me the shirt off his back (I told him I liked the phrase on the front–“love God, love people”–and so he gave it to me).
    Congratulations on the newest little pepper and thanks for sharing your beautiful family!
