Vacation. I think that word only applies when you are traveling with people who can pack their own suitcases (with the right things) and go off on their own adventures. Meaning adults. Or almost adults. Except some adults aren’t capable of either. Hmm. What I’m trying to say is this, vacation is not what you […]

The Melting Pot Giveaway

Confession. I’ve never had fondue. Crazy, right? I’ve heard it’s all kinds of amazing, and yet, I’ve never tried it! (Part of that, I’m sure is that we haven’t had a baby sitter in a while!) We need to change that! In the meantime, The Melting Pot is having a little event on September 3rd […]

Mommy and e

Bedtime with a two year old can be a challenging time. We find it’s best when she’s given choices that she thinks she’s making. “Do you want to brush your teeth first or mommy?” “Do you want mommy to pick a book or you to pick one?” “What song do you want to sing?” Nobody […]

Don’t take our recess away

August 21, 2014
recess

R-E-C-E-S-S It’s spelled out on the board at school everyday. The “class” misbehaves or is too talkative and they get a letter marked off. If all of the letters are marked of, recess is taken away for the day. Their measly 15-freaking-minute recess. {Not the kindergartener. The two year old playing on the school playground […]

The women in our family tree

There has always been an expression in our family about the [Strong German Family Name]* Women in our family. It has something to do with us being stubborn, some might say. However, I prefer to think of it as strong-willed and intelligent.  The first woman in our family tree to come to the United States […]

Enjoying the journey

Airplane-selfies.jpg

We’ve made some amazing memories the last couple years with all of the travel we have done, from driving to Michigan, Texas and Florida, to flying across the country to Los Angeles. Sometimes, the best memories are made in the little moments, the in-between, the unplanned, the journey. It would seem that about half of our […]

Aunt Emily has visited for many of the girls’ birthdays and they love it. I knew we wanted to do the same for our milkshake niece. I had purchased my ticket many months ago. Way before we decided to go to Houston at the end of July.  Ready for takeoff. This is the most well-traveled […]

Breakfast-choices.jpg

Every morning, when my girls wake up, they walk to the fridge or pantry and stare at boxes of cereal, containers of yogurt, cartons of eggs and bags of bread. They stand there and their little mind has a decision to make “what do I want for breakfast?” They can pick and choose from a […]
