We (well, I) never got around to sending out Christmas cards this year. One of my favorite things about getting cards is reading the quick little blurbs about what the family has been up to, what their adventures have been and what their kids have been up to. I know that these cards kind of… Read More 2022..Our Year Wrapped In A Blurb
Last weekend I got a text from one of Logan’s teachers. She was kindly letting me know that her and some other teachers would be out for the upcoming week due to illness. Her amazing one on one was also down for the count. Yikes. Two teachers would be there, along with a sub, if… Read More Girls Only, NO Boys Allowed!
At times, parenting can be a complete guessing game, right? We like to think we know what we are doing, but are quietly questionning our every move and decision. Are we feeding them the healthiest diet available, are they excelling as they should in school, are they doing enough extra activities, are they doing too… Read More Oh, It’s You Again
Let’s talk about fundraising. We all have been involved in this is some way or another. It all starts when we are little…raising funds for school, sports, hobbies, etc. It teaches us about helping others, and reminds us that when we all get together, anything is possible. But how does it feel when the funds… Read More Thank You.
Traveling with kids is always a challenge, especially when there is not a safe place for them to sleep. It’s easy when they are little, but when you outgrow the portable beds, things become hard, and you have to get creative. Up until now we’ve had a love/hate relationship with our travel bed, the Privacy… Read More Our New Travel Bed, Designed By Parents
The first three months (yes, I said months!) of the quarantine were brutal. They were filled with uncertainty, fear, pain, anger and an overwhelmingly sense of helplessness. No, this was not because of COVID (although, it did help to heighten it). It was because something was going on with Logan, something we didn’t have an… Read More Who Will Help?
When we first bought our house I had David (and his little helper, Jack) build me a raised garden box. I thought it would be so cool to grow our own veggies, and envisioned a perfect little Pinterest scenario. The boys did an outstanding job on the box – David is a super craftsman (all… Read More When A Plan Comes Together
When you think of Disney you think of magical experiences, thrilled and exhausted children (and adults) and all around happiness. Sure, it’s exhausting for the parents, and takes a while to recover from the emptied bank accounts, but it’s worth it, right? Our first trip a couple of years ago was great! The kids loved… Read More Disney…Magical Anxiety
Logan got to experience something truly magical, something that will forever hold a warm place in all of our hearts. On Monday morning, surrounded by the kindest people, kids and families just like ours, she paddled out into the ocean and surfed. Yes, our sweet little girl who cannot walk yet on her own caught… Read More One Perfect Day, For Sure
Every day I see at least one post about how important is it to take some time for yourself, that self care is not selfish. It’s usually a beautiful picture of a mom at the beach, or the spa, or enjoying a cup of actual hot coffee in a serene setting. For a moment I’m… Read More The Self Care Revolution…I Want In!
