We have just returned from vacationing with our friends. It was a lovely time. It’s always tough when you try to get two completely differ families together but I think we pulled it off. I learned a few things along the way. The most important lesson I learned was how to be comfortable with Little [...]Continue Reading →
This blog has been sorely neglected. And, I have so much to say. I have some fun things I’m planning on posting. A superhero invitation, potty training gone wrong, allergies and more. I can’t wait to get back into it.
For now though, I’m going to let you in on what I’ve been doing. [...]Continue Reading →
There are lots of things people call their children. Boo boo, nugget, sweetie, peanut, munchkin… but I call my little guy monkey. Right from the start I have called him that. He even kind of reminds me of a monkey. I do call him his name, but monkey is the one that only I call [...]Continue Reading →
“Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails That’s what little boys are made of!”
Little boys are quite the handful. Lately I have had to be more careful about checking Big Brother’s pockets. The funniest things seem to end up in there. This morning he pulled someone’s hair tie out of his freshly cleaned jeans. [...]Continue Reading →
Saturday the 18th, we received a letter that our daycare would be closing its doors on Wed the 29th. That’s 11 days notice. And when you take out weekends and the holiday, 7 days. It is so unfair. Not just to us, but to the teachers as well. Apparently they found out Friday.

This was one lesson I hope to never forget! We live in a culture of immediate gratification and one where you can fall into and out of love. So this Valentine’s Day I want to stand in opposition to this. Love is a choice.
It may not feel like it at the time, but everyday you are [...]Continue Reading →
I came across a quick discussion point on Babble, “THE MOMMY WARS REVISITED: WHY DOES ANYBODY CARE WHETHER WE WORK OR STAY AT HOME?” The point of this article was to get some feedback, cause people to think. But for me, it just points out how much more that I want it all. [...]Continue Reading →
For Christmas this year we received a raclette. In case you aren’t familiar with this, it’s party style eating, somewhat similar to fondue. Our friends Mike and Julie were coming over so we thought this would a prime and gluten free time to use the raclette.
Basically you grill meats and veggies on the top, [...]Continue Reading →
My mother-in-law believes that angels talk to babies. While this isn’t a new idea, I never really believed or disbelieved this. That is until last week.
Here’s a little background. Little Sister is quite fussy about her eating times. She’s like clockwork. At 3 hours she wakes up famished! She is not a happy camper, [...]Continue Reading →
Today I will show my naivety. Two is tough. I never thought it would be this tough though. Big Brother has ALWAYS listened so well. But now, at two, he has a mind of his own. And he’s using it!
No more is the little boy that would throw something away because you asked [...]Continue Reading →
