So What Happened Next? What Happened Next?

My dad has been asking for the last two weeks if he could take Mister Man to go see Horton Hears a Who. I hadn’t been able to give him an answer definitively one way or the other. Yes, Mister Man is just about 4 ½, but he’s never been to the movie theater. In fact, he’s only seen a few movies (thanks to my parents, a few more than…

Not That I’m Stubborn Or Anything…

At least I know where Little Miss gets her stubbornness from. The jeans I had been wearing were … wearing out, plus they were too big (I know, everyone should have such a problem!). I hate buying jeans because I get comfortable in mine and like the way they fit and can never find jeans like them again. When my second to last pair wore out in the knee, I…

Proof That I Need To Take Care Of Myself More Often…

I had my massage today. It was lovely. Especially after I went running this morning in 26 degree weather. Thank God it was sunny. And my friend made me go. So I’ve apparently not been there in awhile. You’d think that I’d know this because I couldn’t tell you for the life of me the last time I was there. Or maybe because my knots had knots. Or maybe because…

I Feel So Decadent…

Back in January, my parents added an item to our calendar at home. “Aquarium” it said. 8am. When I asked my mom about it, she told me that she was going to take the wee ones to the aquarium on Thursday of spring break. Auntie Megan volunteers there, and she wanted to show them the museum. If they were going to leave at 8am, my mom decided they needed to…

Some Things Take Awhile To Sink In…

… but when they do, they’re in for good! We actually had a decent day in terms of weather today. I was so shocked. In fact, we went to the Children’s Museum this morning, and I dressed the kids in their winter coats and hats. I didn’t exactly make them zipper up when we left at one. In fact, when they woke up from their naps (yep, we still nap)…

Out Of The Mouths Of Babes…

I know I need to do a better job tracking what cracks me up about my kids. Just this weekend, they put on quite a show… Little Miss (the girl after my own heart): Look! I got MONEY!This after taking inventory of the basket the Easter Bunny (grandma) had left her. She of course opened the egg that contained the $1 bill first. That was definitely the most excited she…

Easter Party Recap

For all of you who have been waiting to hear how the Easter egg hunt went – with bated breath, I assume – I finally have the update. My apologies for the delay. We went to spend Easter with the in-laws (lots ‘o stories to come yet on this trip, trust me), and I didn’t have access to a computer from Thursday until tonight. So without further ado: Yep, I…

I Broke A Cardinal Mommy Rule…

Yes, I survived the Easter egg hunt and party at my house … with 36 kids (one added just today). However, I’m too exhausted to post about that, so you’ll have to be patient. I do have a couple of pics to share from it though! What’s the one thing a mom isn’t allowed to do? If you answered “get sick” then you have children. Yep, that’s the answer of…

At Least Something’s Sinking In….

I try to teach the wee ones right from wrong and about how they should behave and the like. Actually, what parent doesn’t try to do that? Of course, some parents have different definitions of right and wrong, but everyone tries at least. Minor rant: Parking at Little Miss’s preschool is somewhat scarce. You can park along the main entrance, the 8 or 10 parking spots behind the school or…

It Never Crossed My Mind

I’m certifiably insane, for those of you who haven’t picked up on that yet. I also have a problem with the word “no.” My babysitting co-op has an Easter Egg hunt every year, which in the past has involved hunting for one dozen eggs per child and having the Easter Bunny come to give each child a basket of cr#p. Last year, it was supposed to be at the social…
