An Open Letter to the U.S Women’s Gymnastics Team

Ladies, You are living my dream. I once was a gymnast of sorts, long before you were even born. I was nothing compared to you. I was good enough, though, to compete in local competitions as part of a team. I loved every single minute of it. For an…

88 Awesome Acts of Kindness for Kids

Ever since my Facebook incident with a now former friend, kindness has been on my mind. A lot. I make it a point to discuss with my children every day why it is important to be kind and what we can do to be kind to someone. Previously, it…

For the Love of Books: A Lifelong Obsession

Hi. My name is Angela and I have a serious book obsession. Admitting my problem is the first step to recovery, right?! What are the other steps? Actually, you know what? I don’t even want to know what comes next. If having a love for books is a problem…

Why I’m So Glad We Live in a Time of Selfies

Selfies. When I think of selfies a few people come to mind. There’s Kim Kardashian. Obviously. I love and hate her selfies at the same time. Then, the “Selfie Dad.” You have got to check him out. Love his selfies. And then there’s little ol‘ me. I love taking…

What We’re Reading: Books About Preschool

In less than two months the triplets will be starting Preschool. Yes, you read that correctly. They are already old enough to start school. While they are so excited about this new adventure, they are also a bit apprehensive at the thought of going somewhere new without Mommy. Secretly,…

The Importance of Being Kind in an Unkind World

I am thrilled to share with you today another article of mine that has been published on Her View From Home. This piece was written before all the recent tragedy in our country. Although it has nothing to do with race or discrimination it has everything to do with…

Marvelous Mom 30 Day Challenge

Often at the start of the year (or second half of the year in this case), we set exciting new intentions but don’t know where to start. Many of you want to consistently do more of what makes you a better mother. I know there are days that I…

I’m Scared to Be a Full Time Stay at Home Mom

I knew from the day I found out that I was having triplets that I would quit my job to become a stay at home mom. It made perfect sense. In no way would I be able to make more money that it would cost to put three children in…

This Mom is Currently: July 2016

It seems that these posts have turned into me pouting over the fact that time is passing by so quickly. When I was young summers seemed to last forever. School years were even longer. As I began to enter adulthood those once slow and sweet summers became just another few…

Crocs (Without Socks) All Summer Long

There are so many reasons I love having triplets. They will always have a playmate. They have an incredible bond that is amazing to witness. And I only had to be pregnant once to have the family I always dreamed of. That being said, there are also many reasons…

Toddler Approved: Gerber® Lil’ Beanies

Toddlers can be such picky eaters. Mine have become the worst at what they will and will not eat. Yesterday they would eat scrambled eggs and toast. Not today. Forget about veggies. It’s a fight every time to get them to eat just one green bean. Thankfully, I was…

Welcome Home Henley: 3 Years

A third super special anniversary passed here at the Triplet Farm last week. On Tuesday, I grabbed Henley and gave her the biggest smooch on the anniversary of her NICU homecoming. Like her sisters day, I felt all the feels I did on that oh so happy day 3…

It's Summertime at The Triplet Farm

It’s Summertime! + 3 Free Printables

Holy moly! It’s finally here. It is officially summertime! I had (still have) huge plans for this summer. But…my kids are afraid of bugs. It’s embarrassing to admit that most we can’t spend more than 5 minutes outside because someone saw a bug 5 feet away. Seriously. It’s a…

Wanted: A Real Mom Friend

Once upon a time I had friends. Girlfriends. Girls that shared my deepest darkest secrets. Girls that I laughed at me and with me. Girls that let me cry on their shoulder. They were my girls. That was in high school. Fast forward 20 years later and the few…

Welcome Home Sweet Sadie: 3 Years

Another anniversary passed here at the Triplet Farm last week. On Thursday, I quietly kissed my sweet Sadie on the anniversary of her NICU homecoming and felt all the feels I did on that day 3 years ago. Our celebrations are sometimes loud and crazy. Many times, like this…

What We're Reading: Books About Bedtime

What We’re Reading: Books About Bedtime

Bedtime has become an issue once again here at The Triplet Farm. For almost, not quite a year we could just put the kids in their cribs and they would quietly lay down and sleep though the night. Very sadly, that time has passed… Now, I have to lay…
