Scribbling fun w/ Dad!

Putting a crayon in the kids’ hands has been a challenge. The #1 reason? It goes directly in to their mouths. Another triplet mom posted about this not too long ago & hers were 19 months old. I was hoping it would be a magic number for age so we decided to give scribbling another…

Signs That Halloween is in the Air

This morning I snuck a surprise into my middle schooler’s lunchbox. Word on the street is that middle school is the end of the road for the handwritten lunchbox note from home, but too bad for my kid.  I will not be silenced.  Plus, Halloween is this week and who doesn’t love a marshmallow Peep…

I do not like Clomid

I know I whined about this already but I really hate the dreaded stuff. I spent most of yesterday in bed with a headache from hell. I get migraines to begin with but this Clomid induced migraine was awful. My head is still hurting today. I took a bunch of Excedrin, tried my old drinking lots of caffeine trick,…

I am surrounded by boys!

When Sarah and James were smaller, I was surrounded by girls.  My bestest good friend, Cricket, had 4 girls and James was usually the only boy when we were together.  I like girls, well for the most part anyway.  I mean, I’m a girl.  I can relate to girls.  There were Barbi’s and Cabbage Patch…

Office gossip: he’s just not into it

The end of my contract last week has launched David and I into a bit of unknown territory. For the first time in our marriage, we’re both self-employed. This means there’s no steady pay-check, we’re both working from home and we’re churning through coffee like it’s going out of style. We’re still working through some…

A Backup on the Halloween Highway

Having three of the five kids home sick for nearly a week really put a halt on household productivity.  As a result, things are still moving at a slow crawl as I attempt to steer this bus back into the fast lane. With only 4 days to go until Halloween, 2 of the kids are…
