The Littles | Mommy and Me Monday | The 239th ed

September 14, 2014

Last week was all about the bigs, so naturally this week is about the littles. We sort of have two sets of kiddos some days. We have our non-napping bigs and our napping littles, so they often get grouped together as such. The oldest two especially like to separate themselves out from the “babies” and […]

Time with the bigs | Mommy and Me Monday | 238th ed

September 7, 2014

Today, after church, the oldest jumped in the car with me and asked when she was going to get some special time with just her and me. I admitted that we didn’t do it often enough. We need to do it more. Because she’s the oldest, we end up having her do a lot more […]

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 […]

Reunited and it feels so good | Mommy and Me Monday | 235th ed

August 18, 2014

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 […]

Breastfeeding is beautiful

Last week was breastfeeding awareness week, but I think it’s this month, too. I get confused the weeks/dates/months. Last week, I also had a clogged duct, or maybe ducts. Again. It was so bad that I was crippled over in pain when I put my purse over my shoulder. The only thing that has worked […]

Mommy and Me Monday | Happy Birthday Daddy

Happy birthday, Mr. Serious! You are now the same age as me once again and can’t tell people you are younger than me! (Not to worry. The girls will still remind everybody that I am 4 months older than you, but I guess I should correct them since it’s really only 3.5! Po-ta-to, Po-tah-to. It’s […]

15 hours to family | Happy Mama Moment

July 30, 2014

About two and a half weeks ago, we got confirmation of some not-so-good health news from a family member (not my new/business to tell, I don’t think). I told Mr. Serious that we needed to look at the calendar and figure out how to get to Houston for a visit before school starts.  There was […]

From Houston….Mommy and Me Monday | 232nd ed

July 27, 2014
Buried under kids in the pool

Atlanta to Houston (well, suburbs to suburbs) should take approximately 13 hours. It took us 14 on the way there and 15 on the return. We debated splitting it up into two drives (leaving after dinner and driving a couple hours, and stopping at a hotel) and decided against it. Our kids don’t sleep in […]

Mighty Toddler Mommy and Me Monday: Mighty is and mighty eats | 231st ed

July 21, 2014

Our girls have some of the best imaginations. So much so sometimes that I get confused if they are talking to me or not. “Mommy?” “Yes, dear.” “No, not really ‘mommy’, mommy, pretend mommy.” Right. I don’t even know what that means, but they sure love doing it. I prefer the simple imagination of the […]
