"Mommy, what is that?" she said, pointing at one of my stretch marks. "It's called a stretch mark." I replied, unsure of how to explain this one to her. "A stret shark?" she asked.
Tonight after a ridiculously messy dinner, I ran upstairs to pour a bath for both babes. Bath time could not wait until just before bed tonight. It had to be now... before they touched anything. At 22 months old, Miss M absolutely loves exploring with food. She throws it, she squishes it in her fingers, … Continue reading Day 2 of Bedtime #2 …and other Mind-Blowing Mayhem
I'm not sure where March came from but it is here. Mr. C's baptism day is quickly approaching and the boy needs some new, white duds for the occasion! I planned to order Mr. C's baptism suit after settling the babies into bed last night... and then settling them into bed again because they both woke … Continue reading A White Sports Coat and a Morning of Frustration: Sizing the Little Man Up for his Big Day!
It was 4pm on a Sunday afternoon and after a fun visit to the Aquarium, both babies (and hubby) were starting to get a little bit cranky from hunger. I had already taken chicken out to thaw and was calculating in my head how long of a drive it was to get home and planning in my head the … Continue reading You Had Me at Unlimited Breadsticks and Salad… Dear Olive Garden, We Heart You. Love, Us. xo
Tonight seemed like an appropriate night to talk about our little 20 month year old girl as a little big sister. It may or may not be important to note that when we found out we were pregnant with Mr. C just a couple of months after Miss M was born, I was really concerned … Continue reading Sibling Love in our Irish Twins: Little Miss M, the Tiny “Big” Sister
After a long, stressful morning with Mr. C literally screaming at the top of his lungs for hours on end, he seemed to be feeling better and was enjoying playing with blocks on the floor with Miss M and me. It's been a challenging few days. Both babes are teething. The rosy cheeks seem to … Continue reading A Bloody Lip, A Pinterest-Inspired Meal Failure, An Upside Down Kitchen…What I Fondly Call “Monday!”
Today was a family day! Hurray! It was Hubby's first full day off in a month and we decided to celebrate it with bacon and eggs for breakfast, ridiculous amounts of play time and then I got the crazy idea to take the babes for a swim at the YMCA after their naps. We were … Continue reading FACT: It’s Not Considered “Skinny Dipping” if You’re Wearing a Swim Diaper! Our Sunday Outing to the Pool!
Yesterday afternoon, Hubby called and said he was going to be leaving work early so we could have dinner together and asked what I thought about him making a reservation for the two of us and our two babes at our favourite Japanese Teppan Yaki restaurant. What did I think? Immediate reaction: Yay! Dinner together! The … Continue reading The Teppan Yaki Dining Experience: Two Adults, Two Babies, Too Many Chopsticks and a Japanese Restaurant!
I'm not sure when it happened but at some point it became not only acceptable but encouraged to decorate the outside of your home with massively huge, spectacular, inflatable holiday-themed characters. We've all seen them. The giant standing Santa, the enormous snowman, the Santa sitting in a sleigh filled with gifts and more recently the … Continue reading I Want an Inflatable Dora the Explorer Lawn Ornament for Christmas. Only an Inflatable Doraaa Will Do! (I get it now!)
Another day of Simultaneous Nap Time (SNT) had been achieved! (and the crowd goes wild!) This is starting to become dare I say...a routine! I'm afraid to say it out loud in case I jinx it. Typing doesn't count as saying it out loud. At least I hope it doesn't or else I am backspacing … Continue reading Another Day in the Crazy House: Surviving and Thriving in the Life of a Stay At Home Mom
