Man, what is it with toddlers and toilets? As soon as you turn your back they are all over it! Violet is one and won't keep her hands out of it no matter who or what is deposited inside! Can't keep the door closed all the time though because Gemma, the two year old, is… Continue reading Toilets and Toddlers
Yeah, this totally just happened. It is one of those moments when your glad you didn't make time to take a shower yet because you would be doing it again. Sometimes your just grateful for one shower, but to have to take two? I don't have time for that! Ever had a reflux baby? If… Continue reading Just Keep Your Mouth Closed!
Wow! It was a long eventful night last night! Really it was just a lot of work.

Spring is here! I get super excited for spring because everything feels fresh and new. That and it means summer is almost here! As soon as the snow ❄️ is gone I jump right into summer mode (the tramp does go up at about this time if we want to be literal)! No jackets outside,… Continue reading 60 to snow!
Man, it was just one of those days. I had everything planned out just right.

There are moments when as a parent you look back and what you have taught your kids and go, "Oh, I probably should have added this to that discussion."
