In general I let me kids climb on everything in the living room. They are not allowed on the back of the couch however. The fireplace is totally free game (plus it is also a great place to store the laundry 😉). We have like a bench fireplace so keeping the kids off of it… Continue reading Don’t dance on the fireplace
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.

With three boys running around and a husband, who is just a bigger version of the little ones, if someone is not crying… Continue reading Don’t Pee on me!
So I really don't like potty training. I have yet to potty train a girl, but man, boys are tough! My three year old is working on it right now and he does pretty good as long as he gets a treat after every time he goes. What if I forget the treat? It's almost… Continue reading Get out of the toilet!

My two youngest boys are in one and then the oldest has the other set. They love them.… Continue reading Throw up on the sheets!
It has been an interesting week for me. There has been a lot of self reflection, and looking at the things I have learned from my life experiences. What triggered such a reflection for me you might ask? The Prophet Thomas S Monson passed away this week. My latter day prophet passed away, but what… Continue reading A life well lived
