Dancing Queen

My point of reference for this blog is baby boys, because that is what I have. Well, they aren't really "babies" anymore, but they are definitely boys. So, I was trying to think about what I could write about in my blog in regards to little girls, because I feel like I am excluding [...]

Insane in the "Tupperware" Membrane

Ok, so other than Twin A sticking his finger in a fan, and scraping the whole side of his torso on the concrete at the water-park, and the dog barfing up the missing part of a chewed-up baseball cap, our third day of summer holidays went swimmingly. In fact, I just can't believe how [...]

Ho'okipa in Your Meshies

Before I became a Mom, I read a lot about getting pregnant, pregnancy, and childbirth. After I had my babies, I read tens of thousands of books on parenting (ok, maybe just ten). I still seek out helpful articles whenever and wherever I can, because, this is hard, and these kids don't come [...]

Waiting in September

My mind is all over the place today. It has been like this for a few days. It all started when I realized that September is rolling in like a freight train, and I am waffling between panicking and trying to get organized, and trying to kick back and enjoy what's left of [...]

8 Years Later...

Yesterday we went shopping for back-to-school supplies. Thanks to the organization of our local office supply store, the shopping was super easy. We all went together, husband included. While the kids were checking out the video game/Ipad display in the store, my husband and I split up and hit the lists. [...]
