The story | Mommy and Me Monday | The 252nd ed

December 14, 2014

Our little second born and first middle child has never really been the quiet one. If she is thinking or feelings something, you know about it, as well as anybody within a 5 miles radius, it would seem. Imagine my shock and surprise when I went to her first Kindergarten parent teacher conference and found […]

Going for a cruise | Mommy and Me Monday | 251st ed

December 7, 2014
Mommy and Me Monday

We had some elves to help us with Christmas shopping. Hopefully, these elves stay quiet!  We had one person offer to help us, took pictures of what we wanted, went to the back to check inventory and never returned. It was like we were getting pranked, but there wasn’t anybody videoing. Thankfully, while waiting for […]

The sickness | Mommy and Me {almost} Monday | 250th ed

December 2, 2014

Whatever this sickness is that’s been going around? Brutal cold? The flu? It’s been bad. We haven’t gone a day in our house in over 9 without a fever for at least one kiddo or adult.  Hence the Monday-ish post. Keeping it short and sweet with my little rosy-cheeked, crusty-nosed baby in her Turkey shirt. […]

Brrrr….it’s been cold here this week! Like below 20 at the bus stop a couple mornings. I am not ready for this cold at.all. Thankfully, it warmed up a little by Friday because we headed to a preview of Holiday in the Park at Six Flags. N decided she wanted to check out as many […]

Family Pictures Preview | Mommy and Me Monday 248th ed

November 16, 2014

A few weeks ago, it dawned on me that we didn’t have any professional family pictures. With Christmas coming up and needing to make cards, I scheduled a session. Then, I realized a week before the pictures that none of us had anything to wear special for the pictures. But, I set out to fix […]

DIY Upcycled Thankful Turkey Centerpiece Milk Jug Free Printable

With only a couple weeks left until Thanksgiving, the girls decided we needed some holiday appropriate decor in the house. They’ve been watching Annedroids lately, and took note of their very handy recycling of everything in the junkyard. We aren’t quite at the lawnmower building stage, but they took their inspiration from there, hit up […]

Three out of four | Mommy and Me Monday | 246th ed

November 2, 2014

I’ve been trying to make an effort to make sure to get time with each of my girls separate from their sisters. I think it helps us all flow a little better and remember how to talk to each other when we are frustrated.  E’s thing recently is to ask us to snuggle/cuddle with her […]

The Pumpkin Festival | Mommy and Me Monday | 244th ed

October 20, 2014

It was a beautiful weekend in Atlanta. It screamed fall, and even though we got a little sunburned, it was amazing! The girls had recently heard a commercial on the radio for Stone Mountain’s Pumpkin festival and asked if they could go for their birthdays (maybe those 8 and 6 posts will come soon). We […]

Online safety | Mommy and Me Monday | 243rd ed

October 12, 2014

I remember how cool I thought I was when I was allowed to get on AOL chat. The internet was this mysterious place where a series of sounds (crrrsshhh, biiiinnggg, drrrrreeeppp, ugghhhhhh) happened over the phone line and we were magically transmitting information with people all over the world. Then there were the age/sex/location checks. […]

Well-visit entertainment | Mommy and Me Monday | 242nd ed

October 5, 2014

We have been very lucky when it comes to doctor’s visits this year. But, when we end up with a well-visit on the calendar, it never fails that there will be a sick visit shortly before or after it. Murphy’s Law or something. After last week’s sick visit with no diagnosis (I self-diagnosed her with […]

Through your eyes | Mommy and Me Monday | 241st ed

September 28, 2014

I caught myself saying something this week without even really thinking about it.  “I wish I could see myself through your eyes.” Because I don’t. Sure, maybe I’m too hard on myself. Maybe I have higher standards. Maybe it’s just a mom thing? But, really, why can’t I take a compliment? About being a mom? […]
