Labor Day Weekend

Oh man it was a busy weekend! We celebrated my birthday. Hello 31! Another year, and yet I don’t feel any different. Each year sneaks up on me, and BAM. I’m one year older. I’m a bit pessimistic when it comes to birthdays. I feel like they all went down…

The Recovery: Mom’s Night Out Part II

Oh man! The Mayan’s Premiere was fun, but I’m still exhausted. One shot of tequila and a late night might have been too much for this mama! I took yesterday off to lounge in my pajamas and watch movies with the girls, but I’m still taking it easy today. I…

ASK JACQUE: More Kids, Non-Mom Friends, and Sex & Cleaning

More Kids? No Way. My husband wants more kids, and I’m totally done. Two is enough for me. I know there are some large families out there, and they love it. I am not one of them. My husband comes from a big family, and he has been begging me…

A Taste of Gratitude

I had an interesting experience today, a humbling experience, one full of growth and gratitude. We eat a lot of fresh produce in our house, which is wonderful for our health, but it has had an impact on our wallet. With baby V eating more solids, and the girls getting…

If Only We Could Worry Less

The girls have a photo shoot later tonight, and I’m starting to get nervous. I’m really excited to work with the photographer, a close childhood friend, and I can’t wait to have more professional photos. I’m just not looking forward to the unknown. It’s kind of the way I feel…

“Who’s Really in Time Out Now, Mom?”

I’ve found that holding boundaries with children takes way more out of me than them. Sure, they’re upset to be put in time out or have a toy taken away, but enforcing is way harder than enduring. Especially if there are consequences. My girls are going through a bit of…

Broken Phone, Better Life?

Have you ever lost or broke your phone? It’s jarring. During The Desitin Disaster, I dropped my phone in the bathtub while taking pictures because I obviously had to document the moment. So my phone has been intermittently reliable. Which means, it doesn’t work when I really need it to,…

Infused with Sunshine

Have you ever tasted sunshine? I think I did today. The Russians grow their own fruits and vegetables, and the girls and I always visit the blackberry bush. Dark, ripe, multi-faceted fruit that gushes when popped in your mouth. Not a single one is sour. Each one is perfect. I plucked…

Ask Jacque: Sex Over Sleep, My Brother’s Girlfriend, The Bachelor Boyfriend

To Sex or Not to Sex My husband complains all the time that we don’t have enough sex. Like, I think once a weekish is fair right now. We have two under two, and I’m exhausted all the time. By the end of the night, I just want a shower…

Unsolicited Advice

Having twins on our first rodeo was pretty brutal, to put it gently. The first year with the girls was a fuzzy blur of diapers, formula, and laundry with lots of baby crying sprinkled in. So as our youngest daughter turned 8 months recently, I found myself thinking about how…
