My Little Roommates

Late night games, flashlights and ghost stories, forts and glow in the dark army men. I guess you could say I have a romanticized view of sibling roommates. Possibly because I had a nice experience of rooming together with my older sister until … Continue Reading

Sleep, Blessed Sleep

There are some peaceful afternoons, where I sit alone at my computer, while all three of my babies take naps and I can't help but feel a sense of pride. Sleep is very important in our house. I strongly believe that the sleep habits of your … Continue Reading

Ways I’m Becoming My Mother, #53

Product Review: The Velveteen Bible

My oldest son, who is almost three, loves Bibles.  He has at least four and he sleeps with one every night.  Naturally when I saw that was offering a Bible for review, I jumped at the chance to add another Bible to his collection.  The … Continue Reading

We gave him the belt!

Recently, Alex and I ventured out of our fox hole with all three kids in tow to have a nice dinner at a local restaurant. I didn't happen to think about the fact that it was a Friday night, which generally means that most places are packed. When we … Continue Reading

Restaurant Woes

My children have finally reached the age (almost 3 and 14 months) where I am starting to believe they are conspiring against me to make all public appearances something of a disaster.  Now, for those of you who have older children and are beginning … Continue Reading

Remember The Puddle!

Remember that story about my 2.5 year old peeing his pants in Wal-Mart a few weeks ago? Yesterday, I took him back to the store to get a few things.  He's really fun to take to the store (when he's not making puddles all over the dairy section) … Continue Reading

Love or Hate?: Car Seat Mirrors

I recently made a 8 hour drive (not counting stops) to Pennsylvania to visit my family with all three babies in tow. Before I left on my trip, I rigged up a mirror on each of the back seat head rests so that I could see what was going on with our … Continue Reading
