Welcome Back September

Back to liiiiife, back to reAlityyyy! School is back in session y’all, can you believe? Every year I tweak our schedule. There’s always a few lessons learned the year before that influence the tweaks but also different kids in different grades. This year has quite a few tweaks though. A damn near overhaul. There are…

Summer In Full Swing

As per usual, I’ve been slacking off. Summer started! I haven’t gotten the hang of the whole photograph/record while  living life thing yet. I’m trying, I swear. Let’s be honest though, I’m pretty busy parenting. I mean, there are so many of them… We’ve actually been busy this Summer considering how painfully hot it’s been.…

Mama, Me

  My children are alive. I’m doing okay. Some days they even thrive. Hip hip hooray! Most days they laugh and smile. I’m succeeding in some way. They make me laugh too, every single day. Sometimes they fight, but I have some sway. Sometimes they hug, and I get my way. They’ll have rough days, that…

Out Of The Cave and Into The Pool

For us, Winter is about hibernation. We go sledding and stuff but we don’t schedule a lot of activities. I’m not going to be on time. I used to be an “early” person, but my kids don’t care about that. 4 snowsuits, 4 hats, 4 scarves, 8 boots, 8 mittens, I can’t. I just can’t…

All of the science says that 6 is a big year. Their brains go through a huge change. Who they really are starts to…

Chaos In The Kitchen: Sweet Vegan Tattie Scones

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! That being said, we are not Irish. I can’t really justify celebrating all things Irish, when we are not. It seems odd to me. I realize that in Ireland, they celebrate St. Patrick and his good deeds. They celebrate by going to mass though, not getting blind-drunk on green whiskey!…

Updates and The Waiting Game

The Waiting Game is officially on, and I am already losing patience! Pre-labour is progressing, but i am tired. With E I didn’t feel this “all-day body hangover” until the day she was born. That day I was couch ridden. O and I had an Arthur marathon, and then she was born in the afternoon.…

Boomba #3

As you all know, I turned 30 at the end of February. It was a little stressful for me. Who was I? Who did I want to become? All that good stuff. One of the many questions I pondered, was baby related. I have always wanted to be a mother. When I was little I…

Yeah, I Stole Your Couscous! (What are you gonna do about it?)

Ollie is really picky about the texture of food. He liked things blended right down when he was tiny, and will still eat baby oatmeal over real oatmeal any day. He was very on time with his progression of smaller to bigger foods. He took his time, and tested things out. If there was even…
