5 Tips for Surviving the Terrible Twos

I have had a rough couple of days. Between nap skipping, toddler screeching, twin fighting, and baby teething, I’ve had a few moments where I thought I was going to lose my mind and some moments where I actually did. I don’t have an answer for how to end the…

Naptime: The end of an era

I think the twins are losing their nap, and I am not ready. Recently people have been asking me, “Are they still napping?” To which I reply, “This ends?? I still nap!” Well, I think the time is near. They’ve been fighting their naps for a while, and now they…

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…

The Desitin Disaster

This morning’s Desitin Disaster reminded me of the Poopocalypse, and although it was less disgusting, it was infinitely more difficult to clean up. I can barely clean Desitin off of my hands after using it properly, but this morning’s debacle has left us smelling like Desitin, despite multiples baths and…
