~This is not a sponsored post~ There have been a handful of times I’ve been able to travel by myself, almost exclusively for the saddest of reasons. But last week I flew to Phoenix for business, enjoying the silence of my own thoughts, whisking through checkpoints, chatting with an Ethel M chocolatier, waiting with heels propped on my… Read More Coffee at the Joy Bus Diner
I just received so much free wrinkle cream from #PONDS that I don’t know whether to do a self high five or go crochet myself a shawl. @influester #SeeForYourself via Instagram http://ift.tt/1QDsIQv
Several months ago I signed up with Influenster after seeing my sister post an Instagram of a particularly lovely shade of lipstick she got from them. Or was it sunscreen? I forget. Anyway. I didn’t really expect it to light my world ablaze necessarily, but I figured I’d give it a shot and see what I got before giving… Read More For Testing Purposes Only
This is post several days overdue because, SHOCKER, I threw my back out on Thursday and sitting in a chair for any length of time has been excruciating. I tried several times writing on the couch from my phone, but I’m so bad at texting everything comes out like this. Maybe I should have just gone with it. I… Read More Adorkable, Part Deux
Naps here have been a thing of the past for oh, gosh. Three months? Six? That’s one of those things that I really wish I’d written down when it happened, but I hung on to the hope that “My God, they have to sleep ONE OF THESE DAYS, right?” so long that it all got hazy and confused… Read More What Do We Want? Sleep! When Do We Want it? NEVER.
Today we are all sick. It started on Sunday with Emma’s runny nose. As it slowly wore the rest of us down, a very particular set of blankets began to appear yesterday. Blankets they’d never used before. Not their loveys. Not their backups. No, at some point they opened a drawer in Emma’s dresser and specifically chose these. Aunt Margie made them last… Read More Sick Day
This was my day yesterday. I have them a lot.
No one understands the extreme challenges & emotional experience of raising twins and higher-order multiples than MOTHERS and FATHERS of twins and higher-order multiples. I’ve created a free brochure on the ways in which families can get support from multiples clubs, and how to find one in your area. Because the Internet can give you everything. Except a hug. And sometimes a… Read More For Moms (& Dads) of Multiples
Gaaaaaghhlgghg. Did you know liquid Percoset exists? They sent me home last Tuesday with a GIANT bottle of the stuff, like, Costco-size contact solution size GIANT, and two syringes to take it with that were roughly the size of a tube of toothpaste. Even though I swore up and down that I’d ease myself full… Read More Hello Mr. Leno
Two and a half months after transitioning Emma, Ashley & Sarah to toddler beds, we’ve finally returned to leaving their bedroom doors open at night. All our rooms are upstairs, and the route past ours to the hall bath immediately skirts a flight of stairs. But for one exceptionally mischievous I’m-testing-to-see-if-Dad’s-still-out-there-and-we-stay-up-longer exception, no one has ventured… Read More Crumbs
