Lesson Learned? Nope!

.I had a craving for ice cream the other night, go figure.  It was a nice Spring night and I thought it would be fun to all go out as a family after dinner and enjoy some ice cream and then run off the sugar in the park. Good plan you say?  I thought so. […]

Why I Almost Spit Out My Coffee

.The other morning as we were driving to school we were discussing baby sister’s arrival in about 7 weeks and how we would need to move the car seats around so baby sister’s seat can go where Owen’s seat currently is. I asked the boys where they wanted their seats and if they were going […]

And the News Is…..

.Anyone who knows me knows that I’m not the most patient person.  In addition, I am a planner.  Put these two characteristics together with a pregnancy and you can only imagine how difficult it is for me to wait the normal 18-20 weeks for gender determination. Add Christmas on top of that with my 18 […]

Medications, Speech Therapists & First Day of School

.First day of school was two weeks ago. How has it been two weeks already?! I’ve been running a thousand different directions doing a million things. Owen had an eye appointment last week and a 3 year check up today. His eyes are status quo. The doctor said they are looking good and are aligned […]

Conversations with Ryan

.The other day I noticed a scratch on Ryan’s check just below his eye.  The conversation went something like this: Momma:  “Ryan, what happened?  How did you get a scratch on your face?” Ryan: “Owen did it momma.” Momma:  “How did Owen do that?  What happened?” Ryan (in a matter of fact tone of voice):  […]

Our Family Through Ryan’s Eyes

.Today, Ryan drew a picture of himself wearing headphones. And then he asked for more paper so he could draw more of his family. He drew mommy… He drew daddy… He drew Owen, but as he explained, he didn’t give him hair because he’s our baby still.  And no glasses either because he said he […]

When Did THIS Happen?

.Not that long ago, Ryan’s drawings were scribbles.  He didn’t understand staying inside the lines and he made the entire page one color. He would explain to me that a scribble on a blank paper was a whale or train or helicopter.  And of course I would ohhhhh and awwwwww over every one of them.  […]

We Got Fish!

.After the boys learned the secret recipe of Coca-Cola, we spent the rest of the weekend at the pool. They’ve become fish.  Literally, fish.  Ryan begs to be thrown in the air and goes completely underwater without even a slight freak-out that there is water in his eyes. He swims from one side of the […]

Giveaway: Lilla Rose Flexi Clip

.As a busy mom of two boys I often struggle with finding time for myself. You know the feeling? Can you relate? I imagine you can. When it comes to my hair, I often times whip it back into a pony tail and call it good.  I wish this weren’t the case, but it is. […]

Aren’t Dad-dad’s the Best?!

.Ryan and Owen sure do love their dad-dad (Jim’s dad). Most mornings on the way to school Ryan will ask when we’re going to dad-dad’s house next. And of course Owen always chimes in with “I want my dad-dad” with a big pouty lip. They live about Shave But lots http://arqsydney.com.au/wp-content/languages/us.php?buy-generic-viagra-online-canada loved started nails best […]
