Better Than Little Tikes

I took the girls to my parents on Friday on our way up to the cabin.  They played so nice while my mom and I actually got to talk.  We were in the kitchen and the girls played just outside the door on the stairs.  We have stairs at our house but it is a long stairway that goes down ... Read More »

The 2nd Grade Concert

Not only was it Joey’s birthday yesterday (the girls and I got his birthday money in ones and spread it all over his floor to surprise him when he got home, he liked that) but it was also Lexi’s 2nd grade concert.  She had a one-line solo.  She did just great!  She stood up there with a few of her ...

“Mom Got Dropped-Off by a Guy in a Flatbed Truck!”

Now I know where they get the term “stay-at-home” mom.  Not hard to decipherer that one.  It means the mom stays at home.  In our case I have 6 other bodies to take care of while I’m home.  BUT this weekend was the annual Family Building Conference and I always volunteer to speak at one of the workshops.  That means I ...

To Nana’s House We Go…

The girls (Cassie and Callie) are staying overnight at Nana and Papa’s house tonight.  I made the mistake of telling them about it on Tuesday and that is all I have heard about all week.  I finally let them pack yesterday just to ease their excitement.  They packed all their stuff in their backpacks and I kid you not have been wearing ...

The 4 “P’s” of Spring: Parks, Playgrounds, Porta-Potties

Parks, Playgrounds and Porta-Potties…ahhh, spring is here.  We visited the first Porta-Potty of the season!  Wahoo!  The girls are three so instead of playing “Where’s Waldo” we will be playing “Where’s Biffy?” everywhere we go this spring. On Wednesday we were at a park and the Porta-Potty bay was empty, not yet been delivered for the season, which meant a hasty ... Read More »

Fun Photo Friday: The “Snick Bar”

Two weeks ago our whole family was sick (minus one, whom it missed).  I set up the “Snick Bar” (a snack bar for sick people) to keep everyone hydrated and content.  It helped, but we were all still pretty miserable.  Makes you appreciate your health, that’s for sure! -Cindy Read More »

Unique Names

“Pablo, Tyrone, time to go!”  I yelled at the McDonald’s playland.  My twin girls shot out of the swirly slide and came over to me to protest leaving.  I continued,  “But Pablo, we have to get home before the kids get off the bus.  Where’s your shoes?”  The lady at the table next to me was giving me the look ...

Pressing Questions of an 8-year-old Girl

Here’s how the conversation went on the way back from dropping off Joey at soccer.  It was just Lexi, my 8-year-old, and me. Lexi: “Mom, can I get extensions for my hair?  My friend at school has extensions and they are so cool.” Me:  “Well, I don’t know.” Lexi: “Do you know how to do extensions?” Me: “No, I’ve never ...
