Schooooool’s Out For Summer!

Schooooool’s Out For Summer!

Every time someone says that, I sing the Alice Cooper song in my head and want to watch Dazed and Confused! Today was Luke’s last day of Kindergarten. I’ll admit that I was anxious for the school year to end, but it made me really sad today. My husband thinks I’m a lunatic for crying,

Sensory Play Day- Shaving Cream!

Eek! I’ve been MIA from the blog this week! Between the last week of school and my computer crashing it’s been tough to write. Words of advice- Back up your computer. Do it now! You won’t be sorry that you did, you will only be sorry you didn’t! Hopefully Geek Squad can recover the last

Happy Father’s Day!

Sorry I am a day late, but it was a very busy weekend! I want to wish all of the fathers out there a Happy Father’s Day. I hope that everyone enjoyed a great day with the special Dads in their lives. We traveled to DC for the weekend to visit my sister-in-law and go

Real Food Recipe 1- Kale and Blueberry Smoothie

Sounds gross, right? If you had told me that I would be eating or drinking something with kale a year ago, I would not have believed you. In fact, I didn’t even know what kale was. It’s an intimidating vegetable, and I haven’t quite figured out how to incorporate it into our weekly veggies but

Date Night?!

Tomorrow night my husband and I are headed into the city for a concert and leaving the littles with a sitter. For the first time ever, I’m nervous about it. No, not nervous, SCARED. And I’m not scared that something is going to happen to the kids, or that the sitter is going to be terrible.

Homemade Bird Feeder

I saw this fun activity on Pinterest the other day and thought the kids would love it! We had pipe cleaners on hand and Cheerios in the pantry so we went out on the deck for some stringing fun! The twins aren’t great at beading yet, but they’re getting there! It was great for their

Enter Sandman

We have had the play house set up in the backyard for a while, but that’s pretty much it. Between gardening and planting flowers, we have had plenty of things to do back there! I really wanted a sand box though, so yesterday we went to Target in search of one. Who knew that Target


I’ll be the first person to admit that I am not a perfect mom, not even close. I sometimes lose my cool and fly off the handle, especially since the twins were born. The stress of raising the twins 24/7/365 without a break and essentially no adult contact other than my husband is overwhelming at

Nightmares in Potty Training

I’ve been avoiding posting about potty training because, frankly, I’m a little embarrassed that my kids aren’t even close to being potty trained yet. Luke was fully potty trained by 2.5 except he wore a pull-up at night until his 3rd birthday. I’m lucky if I can even get the twins to sit on the

Gardening Fun!

We started on our real food journey about six months ago. I call it a journey because it’s still a work in progress, although we are about 90% processed food free at this point. I figured that there is no better way to be conscious of what you are eating than to grow it yourself!! So this
