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}

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

33 Reasons My Child Got Out of Bed

33 Reasons My Child Got Out of Bed

It’s 8:35pm. The house is quiet. I just switched the TV channel from Disney Jr. to HGTV. My grown-up snacks are already out and being consumed – wine, ice cream, potato chips. The children are snuggly tucked into bed. I’m just about to start some chores (check Facebook, vent about my day via text message with my… Continue Reading

Catching Up With Carmendy {21 Months Old}

In just a few short months, little Carmendy will be two years old! Every day she looks less and less like a baby to me. But I love her more and more. She’s just so darn cute, especially since I know what’s to come (age 2 and 3) and she feels so easy to care… Continue Reading

When Your Child Won’t Shut Up

When Your Child Won’t Shut Up

You know that talkative person that you don’t want to sit next to on the plane, get stuck in an elevator with, or answer their phone calls? The person that talks so much you can’t even fit a word in edgewise to escape the one-sided conversation? The person that three minutes with is too much verbal onslaught?… Continue Reading

As Good As It Gets

As Good As It Gets

This is as good as it’s gonna get. Boogers, whining, uneaten dinners, tantrums, wiping butts, early mornings. The constant rushing to and fro, the grocery shopping, the piles of laundry, the never-ending to-do list, the house that never seems to be clean, the meal planning and preparing 3+ times a day. Carrying children, unloading groceries,… Continue Reading

Owen’s Quarterly Update {3 and 3/4}

Owen’s Quarterly Update {3 and 3/4}

My little guy Owen has been busy these past three months acting like a typical three-year-old (i.e. crazy spoiled tyrant). It’s hard to fathom that in three more months he’ll be a four-year-old. Even though he drives me bonkers on a daily basis (and by daily I mean every minute of every hour of every… Continue Reading

Catching Up With Carmendy {20 Months Old}

Another month has gone by! Carmendy’s second birthday is quickly approaching. You guys, I love one-year-olds. It’s the best age, these months before they can speak at an annoying rate and say “MOOOMMMMYYYY” about a million times in an hour. But yet they can understand and interact with you. I feel like everything Carmendy does… Continue Reading
