I have one daughter who would forgive anyone for anything and another one who can not a hold a grudge per say, but talk you to death with why she is mad or upset with you. Last night we had... Continue reading

Yesterday this beautiful little girl turned EIGHT! My baby's eight. How can this be happening so fast? When she was one, she carried two pacifiers around in her mouth and three in each hand. They were purple. When she was... Continue reading

It was a long day of sporting events yesterday, coupled with overbearing, over-involved parents and copious amounts of politics. When we got home, this was the first thing on our to do list. Even before I unpacked the bags... And... Continue reading

In the almost three years that I have been writing here at heyMamas, I don't think I have ever posted a full on frontal shot of my girls. I came across these photos the other day when I was scrolling... Continue reading

It happens every time without fail, we head into the parent teacher conferences with Belle and Lily's teachers and when the teacher starts saying wonderful things about my girls, a giant lump begins to form in my throat. This lump... Continue reading

I haven't logged into blog {that rhymes}, since the day after I turned forty which was over two weeks ago. I haven't checked any of my favorite blogs either except for one or two cheeky gossip blogs while eating lunch... Continue reading

Welcome to the Club!! I must have heard that phrase five times yesterday, all said by completely different people. The club that I joined was the Forty Plus Club. Mentally, leaving my thirties behind has not been the easiest transition,... Continue reading

To say that Drew and I never get any time together without kids dominating every moment of every conversation, would be an understatement. In fact, sometimes an entire weekend will pass and I will realize Monday morning that we haven't... Continue reading

To my lovely, first-born, spicy, hot-blooded, extremely spirited Belle: I think I will forever refer to 2011 as the "Year of Belle." Hands down, this has been your year. Things are happening to you and for you, and all of... Continue reading

Everyone that knows me, knows to never use the word cook in the same sentence when mentioning my name. Drew does the cooking {and very well} in our household, and I do the cleanup. This is just how it is... Continue reading
