Bye, Bye Baby

Today, we put away the bassinet. The bassinet that has held each of my children while they slept their first few precious months of life. The bassinet that in the middle of the night I would often get up to peek in, to make sure their little chests were still rising and falling. The bassinet […]

Sisters

Kelly and Ella are really close. In fact, sometimes Ella chooses to go to Kelly instead of me when she needs comforting. Kelly has such a nurturing quality about her… she is a natural born mother. I am excited about having another girl, but at the same time I am worried about what bringing another […]

Mama – When Baby Get Here?

I know it has been forever since I’ve written over here and I am really disappointed in myself about that. My kids are growing up so quickly and I really want to do a better job of capturing the moments… I just haven’t been. So, in the sake of wanting to remember this one, I’m […]

Ducks and Butterflies

I have always had a soft heart for animals of almost any kind. (Sorry snakes and rats… not you!). When I was growing up, we lived on a small 5 acre “farm”. I hesitate to call it a farm… I think it was more of an experiment for my parents to test out the country […]

Anytime someone notices (which it is hard not to because she shoves them under their nose) she proudly exclaims, “This is my special ring and special sticker. They […]

Patriotism

The Olympics have made a big impact in our household over the past two weeks. Today it was with great sadness that we bid farewell to the most memorable (to me anyway) Olympic games of my history. I am not sure if having kids made me more interested, but this was the first Olympic games, […]

Pole Dancing

Ella loves to dance. An even stronger love she has is taking off her clothes. Ella can’t stand to have clothes on. I know… quite the future she has, isn’t it? Dancing and stripping. If we are at home, Ella immediately takes off her clothes and either puts on a swimsuit or her PJ’s. In […]

Parenting

Why does parenting often result in that crushing, insides crumbling kind of feeling? Jacob starts 1st grade on Monday. Since they have half day Kindergarten, he will soon be heading to school from 9am-4pm… seems like an eternity to me! Conversation today as we were heading to the mall: Jacob: “Mom, is today a special […]
