I know I’ve been absent for a long time, I’m sorry about that. I’ve really been focusing on my jewelry lately and my little corner of the internet has suffered.

But, I’ve come back for a really good reason. I keep seeing posts in the various groups I belong to about toddlers […]

On July 16, 2013 By

Eating out with kids can be tough. When we had one it was easy. We were able to focus on just the one child and all was well. Now with two, plus talking with each other it has become a bit more difficult. If you find yourself wanting to go out to eat with small […]

Sometimes I just get fed up with it all. No, I don’t mean my children. I mean all the awful, lazy, selfish and terrible parents you see out there. I know that I shouldn’t judge, but sometimes it’s just too much. I remember hearing a parent call her 4 month old daughter the B word. […]

On May 28, 2012 By

Double strollers that is. We’ve been looking all week for a double stroller… It’s not fun. There doesn’t seem to be one stroller that has all the features we want.

(This just isn’t going to cut it!)

Sibling Love

On April 23, 2012 By

Today gave me yet another precious mini milestone. After I picked up both kids at daycare I was sitting in the car calling the Dr. office to ask a question. I wasn’t particularly paying attention to the little ones in the backseat, but nothing sounded too off. After I hung up the phone I listened […]

On April 10, 2012 By

I have had one of the most proud moments. I have reached a mommy milestone that I have honestly looked forward to for so long.

I knew the day would come eventually, but I didn’t expect it so soon. I thought maybe it would be when Big Brother was 3 or 4. Lots of […]
