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…

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…

ASK JACQUE: Dogs, Toddlers, & Snacks

No Dogs Allowed My husband has wanted a dog for a few years now, and we discussed doing it after we had kids. We wanted to be able to travel a bunch and enjoy spending time with friends, without being worried about having an animal to take care of. Well,…

SuperMom to WorstMom

Today was the kind of day where I felt like supermom by 11am and the worst-mom-ever by 5pm. It began with a trip to preschool with all three children. My mom usually watches baby V, while I drop the girls off, but she was busy today. So I got there…

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…
