Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da!

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da!

At this point in my life; 4 kids and 8 years in, I’m no stranger to gross. There’s a stomach bug making it’s way through the girls’ school right now and Aurora had it a few days ago, but it only lasted 24 hours so no […]

I Should Have Known Better, With A Girl Like You…

A few weeks ago at about 8pm, Beatrix suddenly got hit with a high fever.  I’m not sure how high it was actually because our thermometers are always missing or broken, thanks to the twins’ charming ability to hide/lose/destroy any and all useful objects in […]

It’s been a long time…

I haven’t written anything in a long time, it’s been a busy few months, and in August, we took a much needed family trip to Yosemite- CAMPING!!! Yes, actual camping. In a tent. 6 months prior, when I booked this trip, I wasn’t really thinking […]

Someday I’ll Land In The Nuthouse, With All The Nuts And The Squirrels! Weee!

Someday I’ll Land In The Nuthouse, With All The Nuts And The Squirrels! Weee!

Before having kids, when I would see disheveled children with messy hair, mismatched clothes and shoes on the wrong feet, I admit… I totally judged. I would think; “When I have kids, they will have perfect little braids and pigtails, and adorable clothes and their […]
