Before and After Baby Tips

What I'm glad I did before babies were born: Joined the local twins' club (the classified section was a huge help; we got to shop early at the club consignment sale; we got to meet other new and expectant twin families in town) Took photos every week to document my belly growth (see them here!)...

Having Toddlers

I've read and heard lots of parents say, "Oh wow, this age is so much fun!" About a variety of ages. I thought they were those crazy parents who loved everything all the time and who only saw things through rose-colored glasses. In short, I thought they were full of shit. But it's true! This...

The Mama Matters

I'm in a lot of online groups, and many of them revolve around parenting or babies/kids. Often there are posts from moms who are exhausted and frazzled and emotional. I never have much actual advice, but I like to chime in and say something like, "Your mental health and sanity is really important. You matter... Continue Reading →

Baby Room Makeover!!

Previously: My thoughts on "nurseries" and the first baby room makeover/setup. The babies have been sleeping in their room for what, six months now? They don't really spend any time there in daylight. But as they get bigger, and our living room-slash-playroom starts to feel smaller, I started to think about actually getting some fun...

Modpodge Map Letters

I am so excited about this project! It turned out pretty much just like I envisioned, and it was easy and really inexpensive. Win-win! I bought 12" papier mache letters at Joann. My local store didn't have the letters I wanted, so I got them online. Sometime in the last year or two, I remembered... Continue Reading →
