I Hate Socks – Tiny Little Socks

It’s that time of year again. There’s a chill in the air and those pesky little people socks come out of their summer hibernation. Tiny toddler socks. I hate them. Just the thought of adding to my already uncontrollable laundry mess makes me want to cry. Yesterday I failed…

A Day at the Farm: Part 2

A Day at the Farm: Part 2

READ PART 1 HERE 1:00pm I’m back downstairs. I should be upstairs doing laundry. I’ll work on that after the kids go to bed. I should be cleaning bathrooms or moping floors. Those can wait until Friday when the kids are at daycare. Instead of tidying up the house…

Marvelous Moms Monday: Cheryl

Next up in Marvelous Moms Monday is Cheryl. She is my sister’s sister-in-law and a friend of mine for 20+ years. In high school she wrote me a very thoughtful note after my boyfriend dumped me. My memory is not what is used to be, so I don’t remember…

Marvelous Moms Monday: Niki

Welcome to week 2 of Marvelous Moms Monday. First up is my sister, Niki. I could say a million lovely things about her (and a few ugly things too…I mean she was my annoying little sister for a long time!), but that would take all night. Just know that…

I’m in Potty Training Hell

I need help. Tips. Guidance. Advice. Okay…so, I really just need someone else to teach the triplets to use the potty. P L E A S E ! I’m obviously pretty horrible at it. I’m in potty training hell. At this point, I am confident that I am unable…

Marvelous Moms Monday: Randi Jo

Next up this week is Randi Jo. I first met her when she photographed me, Matt and the babies after they were all home. We didn’t get to have the traditional newborn and 3 month photo shoot since the babies were in the NICU. But, she was gracious enough…

Marvelous Moms Monday: Monica

Welcome to Marvelous Mom Monday. I am excited to get this series started. As a mom of toddlers, I’m always looking for advice from other moms. I wonder what their days are like. Am I doing this right? Should I be doing this? My hope is that with this…

A Day at the Farm: Part 1

Having triplets is like having your own circus. Matt is the ringmaster. I’m the beautiful woman riding the horses. The kids are the clowns. At times were more like the sideshow…so weird and freaky that you can’t look away. Those onlookers ask so many inappropriate (did you pop all those…

Monday Mop Report #6

For 7 weeks now (I skipped a Monday while we were on vacation) I have been writing a weekly blurb on how a now restrained and repressed obsessive compulsive clean freak (me!) copes with the untidiness of toddlers in triplicate! I thought this subject would be never-ending. I thought…

Monday Mop Report #4

Toddlers are messy. I understand this. I do. Really. I pretend my children have phases of untidiness. Like, peeing everywhere. It’s a phase, right?! Once they’re completely potty trained it will stop. At least that’s what I’m hoping. Currently, they’re in the no I don’t want to eat this…

Sickness

Being Sick Sucks | Nana to the Rescue

We’ve got the sickness as my Grandma Irene would call it. It started with Sadie randomly puking Saturday night. No fever. Acted fine. Then Henley. Then me. Blah.   Thank goodness Nana came to the rescue yesterday. There is absolutely no way I could have taken care of the…

Thursday Night Thoughts

Thursday Night Thoughts | Four

Is it Thursday already?! Oh my how time flies when you’re having fun. Matt, the kiddos and I got back from a week-long road trip yesterday. I’ve unpacked the Yukon, but haven’t unpacked the suitcases yet. I’m too tired. I need a vacation to recover from our vacation. I am…

Monday Mop Report #3

I just realized I forgot something last night. Maybe it was the sand, sun, and sea that made my normal Monday night post slip my mind. Or was it the absolute exhaustion that comes with vacationing with three toddlers? Either way, I have a good excuse, right?! Today, we’re…

Monday Mop Report #2

Potty training triplets is disgusting. I know that it has nothing to do with intelligence, but I’m starting to feel like my kiddos are not as smart as I thought they were. I know that’s a terrible thing to say, but come on; get with it! I’m so tired…

St. Vincent NICU Reunion 2015

St. Vincent NICU Reunion

A Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a scary place to spend any time. The sounds and the uncertainty are terrifying. But, it’s also a place where love grows. In our case, we not only fell deeply in love with three tiny babies, but we also fell in love with…

Thursday Night Thoughts

Thursday Night Thoughts | Two

Here are my Thursday Night Thoughts. This week has been more than hectic. I am more than exhausted. Sorry for the crappy intro. It’ll be better next week. one | sick kids My kids have had this cough, snotty, wheezy (thanks to premature lungs) thing going on since Friday.…

Triplet

A Triplet Introduction | Sadie

When I was pregnant Sadie was always the calm, cool, and collected one. She moved but didn’t kick hard like her brother did. And she wasn’t a troublemaker (I say that with nothing but love) like her sister. Being Baby C she had the most room in my belly and we…
