It’s hard

February 25, 2013

As if someone up above was looking down and saying that I soooo looked like I had this whole three kid thing down…I’ve been served a curve ball. It’s like I was getting all too comfortable with my three and a half hours of sleep a night that I needed one more night distraction, just for giggles. And to whomever […]

The World of Underpants!

February 18, 2013

Saturday we bit the bullet and did it. We piled up all the size five diapers and trashed them. We crossed into the world of underpants without looking back. And so far the world of underpants is, well, rather shitty. With the recommendation of some of my wonderful readers (thanks guys!), we tried the “3 Day Potty Training” approach. First […]

Reporting from HELL!!

February 15, 2013

Are five days in a row my threshold or are my kids absolute monsters? And I’d like to give the excuse that it’s harder because I have three kids now but honestly Noah has been nothing but luggage when we shuffle around town. In the early evening (a.k.a the witching hourS) is a different story but during the day, he’s […]

Success Redefined

February 12, 2013

Reporting live from day three of life without Grandma. I wasn’t too positive about what this meant for us on day one (read about The shit hitting the fan here). As the week is progressing, it’s going…well it’s going. Noah had the opportunity to attend his first (of many more to come, I’m sure) ballet class observations. In that brief […]

It’s Potty Time!!!!!!!!

February 11, 2013

My title should be changed from Mother to Butt Cleaner. I’m changing diapers like it’s my job. Although it is part of the job responsibilities, I’m not sure it should monopolize my day quite to the level it does. It feels like at times I single handedly support these diaper companies and could pretty much write a thesis on the […]

The shit has hit the fan!!!

February 8, 2013

Quite near literally since I’m changing diapers around the clock. Someone call somebody…action must be done. I am alone with three kids!!! Um…yeah, you have three kids. But today starts the first day of literally having three kids by my lonesome. Huh? Since her retirement and the addition of my third child, I have enlisted my mom as slave labor. […]

They are, who they are

January 30, 2013

On the way to school today, Drew laughed at my for thinking the Trailblazers were a hockey team. That’s right, my four year old couldn’t believe that I was unfamiliar with the Portland Trailblazers. And maybe you are reading this thinking that he’s right. Although my sports knowledge is below par, I think the remarkable point is that my four […]

Can sleep become part of our routine??!!

January 28, 2013

It’s as if the youngest understands that in order to be in my family, he needs to live a scheduled life. Even at the tender age of almost six weeks, Noah seems to crave a schedule. And I’m extremely hungry for the structure myself, so it works out rather nicely. That is…until it doesn’t. The last two Saturdays, although we […]

Picture Perfect

January 18, 2013

What is three and a half hours? It’s longer than Drew’s day at preschool. It’s longer than a movie you pay 50 plus dollars to go see. It’s longer than an exercise class. What’s not three and a half hours? A complete night sleep? Certainly not! Last night Noah gave me the longest stretch of slumber that I have gotten […]

Unscheduled Time?!?!

December 21, 2012

Every time there is an impending “break” in our schedule, I get nervous about how I’m going to keep my crazy rugrats busy. I line up tons of play dates and plan on extra time at the gym. When it’s over, I’m usually sad. We end up having a nice, relatively unstructured break. And part of me is reluctant to […]
