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 […]

Baby Mama

Baby Mama

The other day, I attempted a trip to Babies R Us with the kids. I really needed suction cup bowls for the babies. So rather than wait for Monte to be home to help, there I found myself, balancing babies and herding the girls. Whoever […]

Pain, Love And Destiny

Pain, Love And Destiny

I’m very proud to announce that after the success of his first album, The Deepest Dark, my amazingly talented husband, Monte, is going to record his second album soon. He’s already written the incredible songs, he just needs the funds to record it in a […]

Yesterday, we decided to go to the beach to watch the sunset with the kids, and I wanted to get some cute pictures of them playing in the sand. We surprisingly got a close parking spot, which was very nice because Mr. Whiney Pants still […]

I love you toe, toe, toe, toe much

The worst thing that the babies can do to me, is to wake up at the same time in the middle of the night. Yes, I have two boobs, but no, the babies are no longer capable of using them both at once without attacking […]

Get Into The Groove

Monte is home! Hallelujah! I’m so excited! Yay! Let the re-acclimation begin. First off, let me just say that Monte is the most amazing father and husband I could ever ask for. He’s putting up with my crazy antics one minute, and having tea time […]

Why So Grimm?

Why So Grimm?

So, Ariel was watching Hannah Montana yesterday (yes, I know), and she asked the question: Ariel: “Where is her mommy?”. Me: “Uh… dead.” Ariel: “Oh… that’s so sad.” YES! Yes, it is sad! So why does almost every kids character have dead damn parents?? She […]

Get In Ma Belly!

Get In Ma Belly!

I survived! Getting out the door with 4 kids is one thing, but getting out the door trying to make everybody look at least halfway decent for Thanksgiving- nightmare!! First of all, nothing fits me. What are my options… dress, or leggings… or sweatpants. I […]
