Dinner With Children: Cruel and Unusual Punishment

Dinner With Children: Cruel and Unusual Punishment

Let’s talk about my least favorite part of parenting: DINNERTIME If your household is like mine, the third meal of the day (following 32 snacks) is an absolute shit show. It doesn’t matter how far in advance I prep dinner. Somehow, just scooping food from a crockpot onto a plate becomes a harrowing ordeal with… Continue Reading

Winnie {Four Months Old}

Winnie {Four Months Old}

Poor third child. Once again, I’m late posting her monthly update. However, it’s not all my fault. If Winnie slept a little better (or at all), I think I’d be right on time with her blog postings. I feel like I say this constantly and I know I sound like a broken record, yet I… Continue Reading

Winnie {Three Months Old}

Winnie {Three Months Old}

Hey, it’s me, the mom that forgot to write her baby’s two month post. So here I am writing her three month post, because by the time I remembered to write her monthly update, she was already more than 3 months old. Oops. But I would like to point out that I DID remember to… Continue Reading

Catching Up With Carmendy {2 and 1/2}

Catching Up With Carmendy {2 and 1/2}

It’s officially happened. Carmendy has become the victim of second child syndrome. First, it took over two years for a photo of her to be displayed in our home. And now this – I have missed one of her blog updates. I wrote about Owen quarterly during the past two years. My plan was to… Continue Reading

Winnie {One Month Old}

Winnie {One Month Old}

My littlest little is one month old. How the heck did that happen already? The past few weeks have gone by so fast. Knowing this is my last experience with a newborn, I’ve been trying to soak in the snuggles and tiny baby coos as we get to know our new bundle. I find it… Continue Reading

Owen’s First Day of Preschool

Owen’s First Day of Preschool

Suddenly I have a school-age child. The past four years flew by and now we’ve reached this milestone: Owen has started preschool. This momentous occasion was like Christmas day. Owen has been waiting to go to school for months, impatiently counting the days. Throughout the summer whenever he’d meet someone, he’d somehow find a way… Continue Reading

Catching Up With Carmendy {24 Months Old}

Catching Up With Carmendy {24 Months Old}

She’s two! And so this is the very last monthly post about Carmendy. On one hand, I’m glad I don’t have to take these photos each month because my children hate modeling. On the other hand, I’m sad to close this chapter. It seems like just yesterday when Carmendy was making her dramatic entrance into… Continue Reading

Owen’s Quarterly Update {4 Years Old}

Owen’s Quarterly Update {4 Years Old}

Oh, Owen. Where to begin? He is such a character. Writing these posts is a true challenge; it’s impossible to capture Owen’s essence in words. But yet I try, because I want to remember all the hilarious, sweet and exhausting moments with him. The moments with him are numbered. He’s four years old now, ready… Continue Reading

Catching Up With Carmendy {23 Months Old}

Catching Up With Carmendy {23 Months Old}

Ahh, one more month until my baby is two! I’m in the home stretch…only one more monthly update to go. I can’t believe I’ve managed to keep up with this for the past two years. Even if some posts were ridiculously late, I think I deserve a big pat on the back. I’m sure Carmendy… Continue Reading

Catching Up With Carmendy {22 Months Old}

Catching Up With Carmendy {22 Months Old}

My baby girl is turning into a big girl each day. Life is so busy, it feels like there’s not enough time to fully enjoy Carmendy at this age. And I love this age! Sure, like all children at this stage, she has tantrums, desperately wants to be independent, and is extremely stubborn (the brink… Continue Reading
