A Wacky Day

Today has been a wacky day. The kind of day where my socks don’t match, and the house looks messy, even though I’ve spent all day cleaning. The kind of day where no amount of sleep can actually make me feel less tired. And of course I’m not the only…

Will They Sleep?

There are two times of year that I absolutely detest. I used to not care as a child, but as a parent, Daylight Savings has become the dreaded behavioral shift in my household. Maybe if I didn’t have twins, it wouldn’t be such a big deal, but getting the girls…

A Successful Park Outing

I took the girls to the park today to tucker them out, but to be honest, I’m not sure who’s more tired: them or me? We all start to go stir crazy when we’re cooped up inside, so either way, it’s essential that we get out. The girls are far…

A New Friend

I had a mommy play date today! I’ve only had a couple of those since becoming a mom, but I have yearned for them for much longer. In my twenties, I thought motherhood was lunch dates and park meet ups, and I couldn’t wait to bond with other mommies. But…

The Baby Carrier

What are the parts of motherhood that make you feel insecure about your body? I feel like there are a zillion, if we let it happen: bathing suits, special occasions, pretty much anything. But the one that got me today was the baby carrier. I don’t think I have ever…

Embrace the Chaos

Yev and I have been trying to have the kids help us with more things. Not because it is in anyway helpful… yet. I’m sure we’ll get to a stage where them cracking and beating eggs for breakfast will be immensely helpful; however, right now, it takes longer, extends cooking…

The Aftermath

In the wake of illness and fatigue, the vacation laundry still needs to be done. I spent the last two days sleeping during nap time, but today, the cleaning beckoned. We had clothes strewn about every corner of the house because my children had gotten into our duffle bags, under…

I Need a Vacation from my Vacation

I spent a wonderful weekend away, but now I’m exhausted. My house looks like a hurricane ripped through it. I’m sitting here with yogurt stains on my pants, courtesy of baby V. The sickness that threatened my health last week, has claimed it this week. I’m a bit of a…

I’m a Rosie

I have a daughter named Rose, and I have gained something indispensable from her recently. I learn from all of my children continually, but this one struck home, especially in the season of life I’m in.  I find myself comparing my life to others. The larger house, the larger car,…

Kids & Laundry Make Memories

I exclusively do laundry without my children present. It’s usually while they’re sleeping or out of the house. Well, today it didn’t work out that way. I took too long doing this or that, and they woke up before I’d even started folding. I decided to try what I saw…
