July Naptime Reads

I spent a lot of time reading this month, mostly to relax myself from what has proved to be a particularly trying month of parenting: breakfast-time vomits, poop-in-the-crib blowouts, an abundance of emergency baths, and plenty of tantrums. Naptime reading time was my saving grace. Here’s what was on my list this month: Lilac Girls by Martha May Kelley: You guys. This book wrecked me. I’m glad I read it

Thursday Things

Between church dances, Latin class, late-night orange chicken and It sleepovers, Red car

If not, tomorrow is Friday, y’all! We’re almost there. Phew. My Thursday Things for this week: Anyone else feel like they can finally exhale? All 12 boys were rescued from the cave in Thailand and I feel

Thursday Things

So. This post is a little late. It’s more like a Friday Things. But today consisted of nursing one son’s bloody chin and cleaning up my other son who decided to claw through his diaper and smear poop on himself. I wish I was joking. But consider that my excuse for the delay. LOL @ my life. Now, instead of drowning my stress in Blue Bell, I’m wearing mud on
