Potty Training….Also Known As Hell In My House

Well, it’s time. It’s time for Miss. Lo to get with the program and kick the diaper habit. I am a firm believer to let your kids tell you when they’re ready, but Lo is head strong and also not a fan of undies. She’s a diaper fan. If asked if she wants to sit…

Boys–Oh the Joys….

I do not have daughters, so I don’t know if it would be any different, but since I am a woman (although Will doesn’t think so – as he told me the other day when I dressed up, “Mommy, you look like a girl!!!” Either he’s very confused, or I just really don’t dress up…

Neighborhood Collage

The weather has been beautiful, so I’ve been trying to keep the kiddos outside as much as possible. The other day, The Younger and I decided to walk around the neighborhood and pick up “neat things” that we found along the way. She has a Cars lunch bag that she loves, so we decided to…

Her shelf, finally

It finally is up.  It is currently the ONLY decorative thing we have hanging on any of our walls. The wing broke off my white angel.  It’ll be fairly easy to glue it, I just need to find the right kind of glue.

#1. The order things are done in.

Trying out a new idea for days I have nothing to blog about. I actually did something similar last year when I went to Arizona and scheduled my blog posts. Him – “Why is Auntie Katie getting married if she just had a baby?” Me – “She didn’t just have a baby. Elizabeth is almost…

Tots & Teens

Of all the advice I got when I was pregnant, or even while Haeden was just a wee babe, nobody ever told me that he would turn into a teenage hellion at the age of two. Everybody knows about the “terrible two’s,” sure. But when I heard that, I always envisioned tantrums – flailing arms,…

Green Tip Tuesday – Newspapers

The couponing world has taken flight, and everyone now knows how much you can save by using coupons. But how many actually read the paper?? I DO! But what do you do with all the leftover paper, ads, and coupon trash?? My grandpa recycles them about twice a month. He’s an avid newspaper reader. What…

Smacksy Sunday Links

I adore this couple. Have you seen Anne Flournoy’s video series The Louise Log? Fabulous. This episode is a favorite. And from Listen To Your Mother LA, Gillian Bellinger’s reads her essay 1,2,3 Rub. Happy Sunday.
