Motherhood: I’m doing it ALL WRONG

Last fall, I came across this article (10 Things Your Mom Never Told You) on Facebook, and it really rubbed me the wrong way. It's that treacly stereotypical garbage that obviously means I'm an absolutely terrible mother. In fact, I'm such a bad, lazy mom that it's taken me four months to actually get around...

Things I Love Thursday: My Babies

On some Thursdays, I'll share something random that I'm really liking, enjoying, or appreciating. Just a little post to share a little snippet of life right now. I'd love to know if you also like these things, and what you're randomly into these days!   Last night as I was putting the twins to bed,... Continue Reading →

I ended up chatting with a couple people, including one girl who's due in a few months. She asked a few questions... Continue Reading →


Our babies are twelve weeks old today. They're now 'real babies', because the 'fourth trimester' stage is over. Same baby, same socks. Above: two days old. Below: eight weeks old. So many things have changed since they were born, and it's really hard to fully 'get.' I look at the first few weeks of pictures... Continue Reading →
