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…

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…

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…

Christmas on my Mind

I know I’m WAY too early, but I’m already really excited about Christmas. And it’s not because of pumpkin spice. I mean, I LOVE pumpkin everything, but it can be hard to find gluten-free options that are yummy.  I’m excited because I feel like the girls are finally getting old…

It’s OK to be a Mess

Yesterday was a pretty rough day. Sleep deprivation, a messy house, and toddler tantrums got the best of me. I’m finding out that loud noises really affect my sense of well-being, and I need to make more of an effort to take care of myself during the terrible twos. Now,…

Marriage

“Oh! I need towel!”

There are traits we want our children to inherit, and there are others that make us want to bang our heads against the wall. Yev and I love seeing intelligence in our children’s eyes and tenacity in their actions. Their mischievousness though, that’s a struggle! Yev laughs it off and…

Handle It With Humor

Motherhood requires effective cleaning supplies and a sense of humor. I changed my leggings three times yesterday because of vomit. Twice from baby V and once from our dog, Hermes. This was after cleaning up the remains of breakfast and lunch off of the floor, the table, the chairs. This…
