Tennis, anyone?

Holly goes to The Little Gym and Kindermusik every week.  Little Gym is less stressful for me.  The toddlers are allowed run all over the gym while being encouraged to join in the activities.  Holly probably participates in group activities or skills about 80% of the time.  It is really nice that it is okay …

10 reasons why I cannot wait for Colleen & Rob’s weekend away:

1. No Cheerios crunching underfoot. 2. No one will cover themselves in yogurt. 3. No one will shriek while I patiently brush the tangles out of her hair in the morning. 4. No one will stand on the kitchen table while I am sautéing shallots and my back is turned. 5. No one will spit milk …

Kindred Spirits

Remember when I mentioned that my cousin has a child she calls George after Curious George?  Several years ago when her little guy was probably around two, she posted a picture of him holding up a stick of deodorant with big ol’ teeth marks in it.  Yep, he had taken a taste.  I tried to …

Pizza night!

Funny story…  Our pizza delivery guy showed up at the exact same time as the next door neighbor’s pizza delivery guy tonight.  They were both driving little red cars, but were from different pizza joints.  I watched them get out of their cars, look at each other and laugh. Miss Holly this afternoon ready to get up …

Planning a weekend away!

Rob and I have never left the girls for a weekend before.  How crazy is that?  We left Linlee for one night when she was about two.  We also left her when we had to fly to California to meet Holly’s birth parents, but that was so stressful, I hardly call it a break.  We’ve …

Some days it’s hard to keep up.

Today my dirty kitchen floor finally got mopped.  Soon afterward, Duncan and his huge, sponge paws tracked mud all over the clean floor.  Time to mop again.  Then Holly opened a pencil sharpener and spread pencil shavings under the kitchen table.  Out came the broom and dust bin.  When I sat down to eat my …
