Double Trouble Part 2

Right from the start, I realized my plan wasn’t unfolding correctly. Morning sickness, migraines, shopping for a bigger car (gasp! A minivan), two of everything, crying, crying, sobbing, stretch marks, 500 ultrasounds, three babies in diapers? (does not compute), Twin A wouldn’t stop spinning, Twin B had a foot jammed in my rib cage for [...]

Double Trouble Part 3

Five years have gone by in a blur of stinky cloth diapers, spills, the cute baby clothes have turned into stained unmentionables (on both ends). There were so many mistakes made, and so much crying, sobbing, screaming, wiping, (and wiping, and wiping), splats, falls, bruises, cuts, more crying, learning, hugging, laughing, sobs of joy, now, [...]

This Town Ain't Big Enough for the Two of Us!

The other morning, I was making breakfast and packing school lunches for my three beautiful boys. I was humming along, with that hopeful zest that all Moms have when the day is way too new to be bad YET. My oldest was sitting in an old armchair playing on his DS (thank you Lord for [...]

A Cup of Hot Coffee

I was sitting drinking my morning coffee in a silent house this Sunday morning, and realized suddenly that it was already after 7am, and everyone was still sleeping. This is not usual, as my little twin B has been rising early (like 6am is a sleep-in early) his entire life. The silence [...]

Ok, so I'm gonna go "there". Because I have put it off long enough. No honest Mom blog can go for long without this topic coming up. What made me really want to write about this is that no matter how old my kids are getting, the topic of "the poop" never [...]

French Toast, Felony and Lost Boys

This morning I fully expected my neighbor to call the police. I was cooking french toast (yes, really...I know...awesome Mom). I had the windows in the kitchen and bedrooms open to let fresh air in. It was 6:54 AM. The neighbour was taking his garbage out, and looked up at our house, shocked, [...]

Kaftans & Cakes

Today I am baking birthday cakes for the twins.The party is on Saturday. Normally, I would be freaking out right about now. Parties turn me into a bit of a psycho. I hate them and love them, all at the same time. I love the "idea" of a fun birthday party, but [...]
