Any given day I am amazed at some of the things I find in my purse. So one day, I decided to make a list of what lurked inside. Here's what I found, most likely in this order. I thought it might interest you: 1 Ketchup packet 1 Chick-fil-A sauce packet 2 mismatched children's socks … Continue reading Items In a Purse
It's been too long. Embarrassingly long. Kinda of like that person whose number you got and said you would call and then forgot, and then kept forgetting. And you forgot for so long, that even when you remembered you were supposed to call you were too embarrassed to pick up the phone? Yeah, it was … Continue reading Posts I Almost Wrote
I've had the relatively same experience a few times recently. It goes something like this: Me out and about with my kids, usually holding one, chasing another. One might be crying, or screaming, or kicking; most definitely someone is running. I am probably trying to do something totally unreasonable like feed them a meal in … Continue reading These are the days?
Here's what's new around our house these days… Yup, he's pretty much a walker now! Finally! He is 13 months old. As we settle into this second year of having two in tow, things are getting easier. It's a nice break. When I found out I was going to have another baby only 14 months … Continue reading What’s new
It's been such a hectic couple of weeks round here, to stay the least, I almost forgot I had a blog. Okay, not quite but there have been so many things I have wanted to write about, like the well-loved oleaginous Whirly Pop I threw out after six years of use while packing a few … Continue reading Lessons in moving with toddlers

I probably didn't mention this before (because of all of those weirdoes out there on the internet who are most likely not reading my blog), but my husband was out of town the … Continue reading Don’t call it a comeback…
Yesterday was one of "those" days. My dog was eating crayons, (the orange ones in case you were wondering); a bottle I gave Landon in an effort to streamline our dinner routine leaked all over the high chair, the floor, me, him, our dog; and when ripping a diaper from my upright two-year old anxiously … Continue reading I have the cutest kids!
"The spiritual life is first of all a life. It is not merely something to be known and studied, it is to be lived." Thomas Merton I read that quote this morning on the page of a book my husband is reading that was left open in the bathroom. It's a good quote, and … Continue reading life or something like it
Somehow, I knew this post was coming. I just didn't know when. It saddens me a little because I really wanted to write about my pleasant grocery shopping experience this morning. (I usually loathe grocery shopping.) I wanted to write about the fact that I spent $99 on our groceries for the week, which, included … Continue reading Not so dirty diapers…
Yesterday, I found puzzle pieces in the dishwasher. The cardboard cutouts were soaked and lying in pieces near the drain. Nice. Today, my right eye has been twitching for want of sleep. I even closed my eyes for a second while driving. That's bad I know, but have you ever done that? Your eyes are … Continue reading Bottom’s Up!
