Remember the good old days when your kids would be perfectly happy with the giant cardboard box their gifts came in? Give 'em some markers, and they were entertained for…Continue

** It's not a road trip in our family unless it ends with a souvenir bag of puke.

Ok, yeah, I'll admit that my husband and I may have rock, paper, scissored our way through some of more undesirable aspects of parenting our twins. (I'm pretty sure we're not the only ones who do this either.) Because, sometimes, it just doesn't really make sense for BOTH of us to jump into a crappy situation. For…Continue

I cannot be the only one....who used to have style, I'm talking up on the trends, shopped at fashionable stores, and thought of my wardrobe as something of an investment. Now, as a mom, all of that knowledge of what was haute has disappeared and has been replaced with a mastery of all the latest Lego sets, which doesn't quite compliment my outward appearance in the same way.…Continue
I swear it wasn't that long ago that my kids wanted to do EVERYTHING with me. But lately, I'm starting to realize that maybe I'm not quite as cool as I once thought I was. (*What the hell?!!*) Fifth grade is bringing on a whole new desire for independence, and friends are…Continue

** It's super fun when my twins come out of their rooms after 30 seconds and claim they can't go to sleep.

It's hard to believe that just a few short years ago, we were still able to give my twins a bath together -- boy parts, girl parts, all in the same tub. Sure, there may have been some occasional finger pointing, but they were able to peacefully sit side by side for the most part. Man, have times changed! It's becoming more and more…Continue

** I may or may not know something about the lack of Kit Kat's in our Halloween candy stash.
** Costumes should really be a part of every day.
Until you become an adult, you never really understand that your parents really WERE looking out for your best interests when you were a kid. As much as you thought they were unfair and totally out to ruin your life, they really did kinda know what they were doing (most of the time anyway).…Continue
** Complete strangers REALLY like to tell me the whole story of their lives, regardless of how horrifically TMI it might be.

I love to pass down to my daughter things that I used to have when I was a little girl. It's like I'm sharing a tiny piece of my history with her. For example, she has my old baby ring that she wears on a necklace, as well as some of my old baby clothes that she uses to dress up her stuffed animals. And recently, she hit the ultimate jackpot when my mom came across my old Raggedy Ann doll up in the attic. She was so excited to have…Continue

We all know by now that stupid situations are drawn to me like white on rice. I honestly don't seek them out. They just somehow always find me. And this probably explains why my 2012 SUV accidentally found its way into an antique auto show over this past weekend. Only me, right??!…Continue

Buggy is playing her favourite game again today - fusspot feeding. An apathetic snack here, a lazy sip there, a few half-hearted gulps sandwiched in between touching her fingertips together, tugging the zipper on my jacket and staring in awe at the shadows on the wall.
Trying to get the baby to attach on days like this is akin to trying to wrestle a…Continue

Hurrah! You did it! You are twenty weeks pregnant!
Congratulations on reaching this important milestone on your first ride on the pregnancy roller coaster. You have just ricocheted out of the loopy and bendy bits of the ride and embarked upon the long, steep climb before the sheer vertical drop.
Having suffered through the early stages…Continue
