Totally Random

I have finally totally succumbed to whatever has been floating around and causing my children (and husband) to be sick. I’m on the edge of being REALLY sick, so I keep thinking “I can do something.” but deep down I know if I tried, I would wind up worse than I am right now, . . . → Read More: Totally Random


I’ve written before what Bill means to me and how much I love him.

This whole blog is devoted to how much I love being a mama to my wonderful girls.

I have so much love in my heart for those three, every day, not just today.

I use the word “Love” a lot. . . . → Read More: Love

Fuzzy Wuzzy

Most kids are afraid of normal kid things: monsters, the dark, loud noises, strangers, strange animals, bugs.

Then you have the kids who are afraid of weird things.

Like Sophia.

She’s terrified….of fuzz.

Basically, lint. My kid it afraid of lint. She’s terrified of anything that looks remotely like it: dust bunnies, clumps of . . . → Read More: Fuzzy Wuzzy

It’s like they know…

Yesterday was not a good day for me. I woke up feeling sick.


Was I fighting what the girls and Bill had last week? Was it something else? I had no idea. I was in a haze while I got the girls ready, in a haze dropping Olivia off at preschool, barely able . . . → Read More: It’s like they know…


A few days ago I was talking about the girls’ names. Basically how we didn’t intentionally plan on having them both end in “IA” but they just so happened to be the names we liked. Now we’ve pretty much decided that if we have a third girl, she will need to have a name . . . → Read More: Names

The darndest things…

Since I now have two sick kids, today’s post will be a short one.

This weekend, Bill was making Sophia a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, she’s been going through a “peanut butter only” phase, but in recent weeks she has requested jelly as well. Since Bill was unsure he asked her “Soph, do . . . → Read More: The darndest things…

A place which must not be named…

Yesterday we were given a very awesome, VIP tour of a major animation studio that happens to be housed in our city. One of the moms on our parent committee used to work there and her husband still does, so she arranged for the committee members (and our kids) to go on a tour. . . . → Read More: A place which must not be named…

This is the post where I take the time to brag

I sometimes feel I use this space a little too much for the complaining. It’s a good space for me to do that, it is a way to vent when the kids are screaming, non-eating, little defiant children. BUT they are also these amazing, wonderful little humans and I am proud to be their . . . → Read More: This is the post where I take the time to brag

The screaming. THE SCREAMING!

Back in November, I wrote about the squealing. Well, the squealing has morphed into a nasty, two-headed beast, called the SCREAM.

Now, in all honesty, Sophia can be a bit of a drama queen. She has the flouncy sigh down to an art form. It is quite amusing for the most part. On the . . . → Read More: The screaming. THE SCREAMING!

My Week (6) in Droid Photos


I went a little crazy organizing and labeling with my new pTouch label maker. Seriously. I’m in love.


It didn’t last.


Bill had to go into work (on his vacation) so we spent the day hanging out and playing with all our new toys.
