Being the ahMAYzing mom that I am, I recently realized that Will's carseat was expired AND that he was too big for it. (The Mother of the Year award is in the mail, I'm sure of it. Along with me winning Publisher's Clearing House.) Now we've just got to work... Continue reading

We had two days of over 70 degree weather here, and I can already feel the affects of the pollen. Bring on the allergy medication. Continue reading

Starting off our third soccer season, the last one with just one kid playing for a while . . . A moment of sweetness . . . One of the other moms asked if it was pajama day at school. It wasn't. This is what he wanted to wear to... Continue reading

So, these notes were folded up so that they could fit into the plastic eggs Abby got at KidStuf. The theme this month is love, so she was trying to think of nice things to do for others to show them that she loves them. And then she decided that... Continue reading

The kids were SO excited when Josh's folks picked them up from school last Friday. They got to go to McDonald's . . . They each got a dollar bill (that I think they forgot when we left the bus) . . . And, snacks. Continue reading

Do you ever have those moments when you look at a photo and think, "This is perfect"? This is one of mine. I'm missing a kid, but still. Happy Friday! Continue reading

Although each of these is very similar, I think they tell different stories. Don't you think? This one is goofy Lexi. Continue reading

So, I talked about this WAY BACK at the end of January. But we've been dealing with head lice for over a month now. Yep, still dealing with it. Fortunately the girls are super patient and will put up with most anything we've done. This shot was when we covered... Continue reading

I'm only 49 pages in, but this hit me pretty hard: "One of the greatest challenges I've faced as a mother -- especially in these anxious, winner-takes-all times -- is the need to resist the urge to accept someone else's definition of success and to try to figure out, instead,... Continue reading

Last weekend I took the kids to the circus, since it was cold outside and Josh was on a retreat with his middle school boys. I found a BOGO deal for the tickets, so it seemed like an affordable outing. Until we saw the cotton candy. $12 for a bag.... Continue reading

The days are long but the weeks are fast. Here we are almost 3/4 of the way done with kindergarten. We tell Will when he goes to sleep not to grow any bigger. Continue reading

I'm the super awesome mom that didn't notice Lexi's toes breaking through the front of her shoes. Either that, or she's like me, and somehow manages to scrape the front of her shoes when she walks. Continue reading

I was reading the Parade section of the Sunday newspaper a few weekends ago when I came across this nugget: If you struggle with math, that means that out of every 60 minutes, 35 minutes are spent "squabbling". So, yeah. Continue reading

So recently we found ourselves scrubbing green stuff off of our fence. And here's what was on the other side. Love this. And my favorite. Continue reading

My memory fails me on the exact details, but I'm thinking this was a Saturday where Abby and Will ate their lunch, and each got a small package of M&Ms. "Hey, mom. Whatcha doin'?" She's so focused on arranging her treats, that she doesn't see him coming. I DON'T THINK... Continue reading

Step One: Step Two: I'm not really sure what was happening here, but they were safe, and the jump rope eventually gave up. Total Valley girl going on here. Sweet sisters. Trouble makers. Partners in crime. Continue reading

More reasons why I love that Canon 5D so . . . She's pretty cute when she's happy. We've been getting a lot of practice at staying in the lines lately. Continue reading

We're starting early with our kids -- just focusing on the SEC conference right now. Will knows when we see the above helmet: "Mommy, we don't like the Gators." This is also a handy way to teach the kids about the southern states nearby . . . . . .... Continue reading

While Josh and Abby were out dancing the night away, I took the twins on a date. All of the toppings and flavors were a little overwhelming, but we managed to fill 3 cups with $8 worth of goodies. Note to self: Will doesn't like frozen yogurt. Further note to... Continue reading
