The name

In 2006, when Cora was born, the name was ranked 384 per million babies.  I’m not sure Cora counts in those statistics, since she wasn’t born alive and therefore had no social security listing.  Anyway, the name as of last year was ranked 303, so it’s getting more common as the trend for “old fashioned”…

Nowhere to go!

I realized today that I am having (or about to have) my first postpartum ovulation – my first thought was “well I don’t need to worry – because I’m certain there is no way I can get pregnant!”, then it dawned on me… I HAD A TUBAL LIGATION – there really IS no way for…

Getting Beautiful with my Motorola Cliq

You know how I posted that I was trying to go from being the frumpy dumpy looking wife to the beautiful wife I used to be? Well, I am making progress. I’d like to give partial credit to my Motorola Cliq and I’d like to show off my before and after pictures taken straight from…

Hold onto your big girl panties- I’m back.

I think I’m back. We tried to go climbing twice this week, but each time the heat index was 112. So, as my husband so succinctly put it “I hate it when the chalk turns to toothpaste.” (aka, climbing chalk…which is like gymnastic chalk, and you use it like a good luck charm/time waster because…

Let me tell you about yesterday

I needed to go grocery shopping. I normally go on Sunday but I was feeling lazy on Sunday so I put it off until Monday. I was going to go early in the morning before my kids knew what I was doing but that didn’t end up happening either. So sometime late yesterday afternoon I…

Quality Time

So what’s another great thing about diving into the world of smartphones? Sure, the internet is great, the apps rock, and being able to completely keep track of most everything on one device makes life a little easier. I think the best thing though, is how excited my kids get over it. Rileigh was walking…

Don’t wake the sleeping toddler

Spaghetti is not a sleeper. Right now, she is currently asleep in the hallway since she is not a sleeper. Ever since the Meatball left for the summer (more on that in another post), Pretty Pants and I have been struggling to get our rambunctious toddler on a sleeping routine. It was easier during the…

Mapping my way around with my Blackberry!

Life has been super hectic but somehow we managed to find time to visit my friend, Andrea, who happens to live about 45 minutes away. It was the first time to bring the kids over there. And actually, the last time I was there was about 5 years ago. That’s a long time, long enough…
