Yesterday, I was a ditz. My sister sent me a great big box full of clothes, candy and cookies!!! How could I not be thankful for that?! Getting packages in the mail is one of the most enjoyable things in life. Especially when they are from family and sent with love. We had so much … Continue reading Candy, Cookies, & Chubs
Love and Lemons
Right now, my husband and I are sitting on the couch like zombies. He, starring at the computer screen looking over things like OE scores and labor costs from Chick-fil-A that I am sure he already knows. And me, starring at some corny Christmas catalogue I had previously made fun of, flipping through pages of … Continue reading Love and Lemons
Enough of the early rising
Glory glory Halleluia! The sun arose before my kids today. It's a miracle. With the lack of daylight savings and the early bird tendencies of my children, the last few months have left us shuffling around in our pjs in the wee hours of the morning. And the not so wee hours. I mean, the … Continue reading Enough of the early rising
These are the days?
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
Lessons in moving with toddlers
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 have the cutest kids!
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!
Showers and Shepherds
Going to a baby shower when you have a two year old and an eight month old is kinda like going to a wedding after you've been married a few years. "Congratulations!" you say in your best and most sincere tone, while thinking in your head "Good luck, hold on tight, you are in for … Continue reading Showers and Shepherds
You put your right foot in…
How old is too old for footie-pajamas? This may surprise you, but I ask myself this question a lot. Currently, my boys are 21 months and 7 months, well within the range of appropriate footie-pajama wearing years. But on occasion the question arises in my mind and I wonder at what age I should stop … Continue reading You put your right foot in…
Moments of Greatness
In every life there are moments of greatness. Weddings, graduations, births, and promotions automatically come to mind. But there are other much less "significant" moments in life that sometimes surpass or at least rival these major life events. Moments when you close your eyes and try to etch those minutes and seconds into your memory … Continue reading Moments of Greatness
