Sleeping Still Sucks!

Remember when I wrote the blog post Sleeping Sucks??? Well, guess what? A year later, and it still sucks! Ugh, hair pulling annoying sucks. Now, let me tell you, it doesn't suck because I have a toddler and a baby, it's still with the two older boys. Now 7 and 5, if we put them to bed together at night, it's still a slumber party. Seriously, every time! It's actually really funny how much those two still find ways to try and have fun when it's bedtime. I remember when I was young and would go to a friends house...

How I Organized My Kids Documents And Pictures

I'm not the most organized person, but lately, I have found myself trying to get things more accessible. With 4 kids, we have quadruple copies of everything. We keep the essential documents tucked away in a safe spot, but for everything else, it's becoming a big cluster of documents to filter through. When we register the boys for an activity such as swimming lessons, I have to search through our files in the filing cabinet for their report cards. This isn't a big deal, but it becomes annoying when I have to search for different papers all the time. I...

Arts & Crafts: Painting With Pucks

Winter doesn't seem to want to give up its status here, in fact, another storm is scheduled for tomorrow. We just can't shake it, and we are really anxious for spring. With crappy weather, this past weekend, we did an indoor painting activity before heading outside to play in the snow/slush/wind, any other cold winter status that's currently going on. I don't know if it was just our school that used paint pucks, but when I was able to find them on Amazon, I quickly bought them. I used to love painting with these paint pucks, and they were so...

Spring Break

Spring Break Chaos

Spring break is officially over, and the boys are back to school! The word chaos is a bit excessive, but I like being dramatic like my children. You would think that because I had the boys registered at a sports camp that my week would have been super easy. I wish I could say that. Believe it or not, having them in the camp has probably saved me many grey hairs. However, I still managed to get a few in my messy bun. How is that possible? Let's see: Day 1 Monday was our first day to head into the...

The Forgetful Mama Brain

You got to love everything pregnancy offers to our bodies. I mean, we get the most beautiful gift, a baby, which I am grateful for, but can we take a moment and giggle at how pregnancy affects our brains and makes us do ridiculous things?? For example, I can't remember which pregnancy it was, but I went grocery shopping, came home and put groceries away. So far so good, right?? Well, it wasn't until my husband went into the pantry for something and found a little surprise. Apparently, I thought hamburger patties belonged in the pantry. It seemed logical at...

Breastfeeding – Lessons Learned

As I sit here, nursing my last little baby, I start to reflect on what I've learned over the years from nursing 4 babies. I know I have been tremendously lucky to have been able to nurse them all, and I am a strong believer in the fed is best. If you weren't able to breastfeed, don't feel guilty! You still fed your baby and that's all that matters. I wasn't even a breastfed baby and I grew up absolutely perfect and fabulous! So with that, here are my lessons and opinions.

When Shit Happens!

Last night I was reminiscing about a story that happened last summer. At the time it was not funny at all, but now, when I look back, I just laugh at the whole scenario. It was a hot summer day last August, where I took all three boys to play at a splash park. Everyone was having a great time. We brought out a picnic lunch, and there were lots of laughs to be had and little to no fights. [wpvideo DIIqOby9 ] Right after lunch, I received a text message from my realtor to inform me there would be...
