Bathroom Disasters

I've told this story a few times this week and all the parents of boys say they can relate. It's just mind-blowing how gross bathrooms are when you have boys! The latest story is from this past weekend. I was in the washroom and I could smell pee. I thought, oh it must be an old diaper in the garbage, so I dump it out. Then I hear my husband saying "who peed in the toy basket?" .... Of course, silence and no one fesses up. Turns out, the eldest one said he "accidentally" peed in it. Um, buddy, you're...

On your marks, get set, GO!

I decided to write down a day in our weekly routine. This is not to complain or to say I do more than others or anything like that. It's just to show a day in a life with kids. Honestly, nothing too exciting or super crazy either. It's too bad I no longer wear my Fitbit to see how many steps I take in a day. I remember when I was at work, the number was low, but before and after work those numbers would spike. It's always a go go situation. At least for now, we don't have any weekly...

Cooking for the family

I remember a time when I didn’t feel like cooking a meal and I would pull out my trusty cereal or my good old peanut butter and jam toast. Always hit the spot and it was simple. Now, I can't rely on this as often as I did. Apparently, we have to keep our kids fed with food to help them grow. So demanding, kidding. Trying to keep food tasty, simple and creative is a challenge. I used to meal plan, do the groceries ahead of time and sometimes even have a few meals prepped in the freezer. Today, this...

Do these pants make me look pregnant?

Ok, so I gave away all my maternity clothes and now I have found some but seriously maternity pants are not my friends!! Can we just take a minute and laugh at this look, please?? Like how sexy are those pants?? I'm 5'8" and I don't consider myself very tall but in the maternity world, I feel super tall. Maternity pants and dresses are always a pain to fit. My legs are too long for pants and as my belly grows, it's almost danger zone in dresses with my butt peeking out 😳. Dresses become shirts. All in all, it's...

Boys and Trouble

This week,  I was having a chat with my coworker about a situation my boys got themselves into. It had us laughing and yet rethink children and danger. We know the term "baby proofing". As our babies start moving around, we start to remove the "dangers" from their path or lock the cupboards and drawers etc. We are watching them closely, but as they get older you begin to give them more independence and trust. Well, let me tell you, during the baby stage I should have been laxer and I should be kid proofing everything now. See, this week...

VOTE : Boy or Girl

[polldaddy poll=9820908][polldaddy poll=0] Tomorrow is the big reveal day for our growing family. We will find out at the ultrasound, as long as baby is co-operating, if we are having a boy or a girl. I literally feel as though I already know I am having a 4th boy. All four pregnancies have been exactly the same. They all have the low heart beats, I have the same cravings, the same sickness so on and so forth. I feel as though, I will be laying on the chair and the technician will say "you are having a boy", and I will be like ya ok....

Who’s hungry for a wiener?

Quick little story. A couple of weeks ago we were out at a family reunion, and we were about to head home after a great weekend of visiting with everyone. As I was packing, my aunt quickly asks me if I would take any leftovers home with us. I said absolutely! She then asks "would you and the kids eat some weiners too?" Now to many, this may not sound all that weird, or maybe it does. See, in our house of boys, we use both the words penis and wiener interchangeably. So, when my aunt asked me the question,...

Capture the moments!

Last night, sitting in Tim's room, and rocking him to sleep as he wasn't feeling well, I started to reflect. My little boy just turned one but yet I feel he is growing too quickly. We often hear how parents always feel the small sadness of seeing their last baby grow up and not be in the baby phase anymore. I know I have another baby coming along and I still feel the sadness. Last night, my little guy wasn't well. It was 1130 pm, he was warm and needed some cuddles. I laid him on my shoulder and sat...

Everything becomes poop

I don't know about your kids but my kids love the word poop and think it's hilarious. We could be talking about something super random and BAM one of them turns the convo into poop and the giggles begin. Never fails. Check out me trying to sneak a video of their giggles and it still turns into poop:[wpvideo I3gW5BZk ]Also, over the weekend the boys were hungry before bed and were excited to eat a salad as a bedtime snack. So weird!
