Too cute for my husband?

My new sewing machine has been so inspiring. I am thinking of all kinds of things to make and to alter.  All those little things about my clothes where they don’t fit just right? I might finally fix them. All those cute projects in books and magazines and Pinterest I’ve found: I might just make […]

Her Sixth Sense

The Little One has the fabulous talent of being able to sense when I’ve either gotten comfortable in bed or been asleep for five minutes.  At this moment, she will wake up and start crying. Some nights she only needs to be covered up, other nights she needs to go potty (and by this I […]

Potty Training update (Really can there be any more of these?)

Yes, obviously there can. The Little One has started to train herself. This is good and bad news. Good news because she’s excited about it and seems to get it most of the time. Bad news because I am completely burned out on being in my bathroom. And the Little One has to go. A […]

Getting in the car should be faster with one, right?

Once the twins started school, I figured it would be so easy for the Little One and me to run errands, etc. because I would only have one child to buckle in and out of a car seat at each stop and one child to corral and police in each location. What I didn’t count […]

Training Them Right

Quite often as mothers, we lament the lessons our children don’t learn – saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, picking up their toys, being nice to other kids, etc. Then there are those rare occasions when we can think, well, there’s one thing I passed on right. Since the twins are progressing in potty training, the […]

Potty Training Update (Seriously will these ever end?)

I think my son has finally figured it all out. He can go pee.  He can go poop.  He can go without being reminded. He can summon a couple dribbles to get the desired color of candy treat. Success! and we move on… The Little One is catching the bug. She really likes the treats, […]

She’s talking!

Having mastered walking, toddler running (walking so fast you look like you’re going to trip and your cheeks jiggle) and climbing, the Little One is now working on her speech. Few of her words are probably recognizable to anyone but me, but her growing vocabulary is sometimes helpful and other times, oh dear.  One morning […]

Sunshine and Spring

I love these purple and white ones.I have some deep purple ones, but they aren’t open yet. These have been moved around several times. I had them along a walkway andthey kept getting whacked off. Now they’re in a landscaping bed and reasonablysafe until the sprinklers need to be adjusted. Not a tulip,but the only flowerI can […]

Her Carnivorous Habits

Whenever the Little One eats, I’m reminded of Jimmy Buffett and ‘Cheeseburger in Paradise.’  She’s not a huge fan of hamburger, but any other meat disappears from her tray faster than the dogs go after Cheerios that fall on the floor. Ham, steak, chicken, hot dogs, sausage.  She loves it.  If it’s on her tray, […]

Our Redundancy Officer

As the Little One grows, we are discovering her particular talents and wishes. She prefers to have her pacifier all the time.  We only allow her to have it at naptime and bedtime, but that doesn’t stop the tantrums when she can’t get into her room to get it. When she’s done eating, she takes […]
