Life around here lately

I think I’m done apologizing for being MIA, and I don’t mean that in a ‘I don’t care’ kind of way. Quite the opposite. I mean it in a ‘I’m living my life and loving it, and sometimes that’s really busy’ kind way. So to me, that means I’ll be in and out and that’s just fine by me.

Life is so interesting sometimes, don’t you think? One minute you’re plugging along and things are going smoothly, and the next minute BAM! A giant curve ball gets thrown your way. I felt that way about a month ago when our new and super awesome nanny gave notice after only 1 month. It was turning out to be too much for her to take on the duties of her own family and mine, so she needed to take back her time. And I totally respect that, but ouch did that one sting a good bit. We only had 4 days to find a replacement, so I sent a little plea up to heaven and hopped onto my giant support system – aka Facebook and you guys. And at that same time I was struck with a very strong impression that I shouldn’t need to do this. I shouldn’t need to find someone else to rely on to watch and care for my children, because I should be doing that. And ouch, did that one sting too. [Read more…]



We are two weeks out from these little rug rat’s official entry date into Nursery, so yesterday we decided to give it a test run.

We did this with Quinn too and it proved to be a great way to help them transition. We started a few weeks before Quinn’s official date and would both go to Nursery with him and spend the entire time in there helping him play with toys, playing nicely with the other kiddos, and getting the general feel for the routine. When the time finally came that we were able to officially drop him off and run, he was the one doing the running.

And so, we began the same routine with the twins, hoping for the same results. And truth be told, with the way things went I’m pretty sure we could have dropped and ran without any issues.

These two are simply amazing.
