Singled Out: Life as a Redhead and Twin Mom

When I was a child, old ladies would often come up and ask me, “Where did you get your red hair?” Too young to fully understand the complex system of genetics, I went with what I knew. “My uncle!” I would proudly reply, since he was the only redhead … Continue Reading

A Day In The Life

If you're a Stay At Home Mom (SAHM), you've more than likely had someone say to you (with a confused look on their face) "But...what do you DO all day?!"  I've been on both sides of that conversation and I totally get the confusion.  There's a lot of … Continue Reading

Love or Hate?: NurturMe All Natural Dried Baby Food

When my sister shared a link for NurturMeNatural Dried Baby Food my interest was definitely peaked. So far I think this would be a great option for something to carry in my diaper bag when I am out or when I have to travel. Has anyone tried this yet? … Continue Reading

Baby No More

I don't think there's any way to deny the obvious at this point.  My baby is no longer a baby. This weekend, my "baby" will be 18 months old.  Still quite young, by all accounts, still small and in need of constant supervision, but no longer a … Continue Reading

Relocation Regression

(Yes, I know it doesn't rhyme.) As I look around our new house, I only see a few boxes left unpacked.  There are still some bare walls (we need to buy a ladder and hang a large painting on our living room wall, for one) and our dining room is … Continue Reading

You’ll Make It

Last week, I was making dinner for our family.  It was late afternoon and my husband was due home from work at any time.  The boys were playing, alternately in the living room and in their new playroom.  I wasn’t making a big special dinner, just … Continue Reading

Starting Solids

While visiting my parents who live out of state, we decided to make a pilgrimage to our favorite Swedish home decorating mecca, Ikea. Our objective was to obtain more wooden train tracks for Will's newest obsession, Thomas the Train. It is hard to … Continue Reading

Ask Playdate Crashers

At The Playdate Crashers Podcast, we have never claimed to be experts.  But now, YOU get to be the expert! Parenthood is full of questions. “Is this the best crib for my baby?” “When should my preschooler know how to count to twenty?” “AM … Continue Reading

Travel Tips

Playdate crashers, I miss you.  We have moved into our new house and everything is wonderful, except...*dun dun DUUUUN* We have no Internet.  But I'm exploring every avenue to make sure we stay connected!  Stay tuned, I won't be gone forever! … Continue Reading

Love or Hate: Amber Teething Necklaces

When I first saw these, I was trying to figure out why people were putting necklaces on their babies, both girls and boys. Then I heard rumors of their magical powers. It seems that there is something to these necklaces that soothe cranky teething … Continue Reading

TwinTrexx Carrier

Babywearing is a great way to carry your child safely and nurture the bond between mother and child. There have been many times as a mother of twins that I wished I could figure out how to wear both babies at the same time in a safe and comfortable … Continue Reading

Doggie Wearing?

Currently I am in the midst of working on my review of the TwinTrexx carrier and I can't wait to share it with you. As I was doing some online research, I stumbled across this gem on, perfect for any mom who is sad that her babies are … Continue Reading

Recycle, Reduce, Reuse.

Apologies for the late post this week, but I was inspired by Krista's big move to get my own house in order. As a mother of twins + 1, we are quickly running out of space. Will's second birthday is quickly approaching, and with it comes a new wave … Continue Reading

There’s No Place Like Home

Today's the day!  This morning, my husband and I are closing on our new home, just across town from where we currently live. We are so excited!  We have lived in this town for almost three years, but we haven't settled in yet.  We've had several … Continue Reading
