The absolute unthinkable has happened! It may have been going on for awhile, or just gradually it has been happening more and more. But I just noticed the other day. In some ways it happened just in the nick of time! My kids have officially started to independently play with each other. I’m not talking about the parallel play side […]

Gotta wake up pretty early to pull a fast one over on Drew!

July 4, 2012

I had been reluctant to tell Drew the big news. I expected it to be hard on him and potentially effect some of his behavior so I thought we could put it off. Also, I have been super paranoid about the well being of this baby and didn’t want to say anything until we were out of the woods (or […]

Code Pink Emergency

May 15, 2012

Houston we have a problem! There is no doubt that Drew is a boy’s boy. He has no interests that are even slightly unisex. It’s sports 24/7, he pretty much has zero interest in girls or girls’ activities (with one minor girl exception) and he seems to relate to the male parties in our family WAY more than the female […]

I Have 2 Kids

March 29, 2012

She sleeps in a crib, wears diapers and unfortunately still drinks formula. For all intensive purposes, Gabby is still a baby. But she has become so much more than a baby. Today I took her to the dentist with Drew and she has overnight turned into a bonafide child. When did it happen? Drew’s infancy, babyhood and toddler times are […]

Threesomes are WAY easier

March 14, 2012

I remember people telling me that going from no children to one child was the largest life changing jump of all. And although that is true, I feel that that is misleading. It led me to believe that going from one child to two children was a piece of cake. Not the case. Looking back on Drew being an only […]

Oh Brother! Sayonara Sista!

February 17, 2012

I am an only child. I can’t say that I necessarily disliked being an only child. Rather, there have been things about living my life as an “only” that I wasn’t the most fond of. But there were also benefits I reaped by flying solo. My friends that had siblings had households that were always buzzing. People were coming and […]

Celebration City

October 17, 2011

It was a weekend of celebrating. I always have anxiety (what else is new?!?!) when we have a jam packed weekend. Regardless of how much fun the plans are, I like to have some flexibility to go as the wind takes us. This weekend, however, there was none of that! Friday started the weekend off with the second of three […]

We have boy overload in our house. I have not been quiet about the obsession with baseball here. Well, fortunately for everyone, we have nicely transitioned to football. It’s sports city here about 90% of the time with a few super heroes thrown in and the occasionally fixer up tool situation. One thing that is definitely lacking is girly time. […]

Happy Birthday Papa

August 7, 2011

It’s better than Drew beating any of us up but I’m afraid the message is all wrong…he can beat his sister until candy comes out :/

Sibling Rivalry

May 2, 2011

The minute I put Gabby into the bath with Drew, he took a bucket of water and doused her with it. As a tough girl already accustomed to the abuse of an older brother, she just picked up her rubber ducky and started playing completely unphased by it. The relationship between them is something I will never fully understand but […]
