August Naptime Reads

Y’all. It’s been a wild month. We are in the midst of a big move to our new house, and things are just a little (okay, a LOT) crazy. So, this month’s roundup of Naptime Reads is short and sweet, as my time for sneaking a few moments with my e-reader had to be fit in between packing boxes, de-junking, and wrangling high-energy (and now one-nap-only) toddlers. But ain’t that

Thursday Things

I’m in denial. BIG time. My boys had their eighteen month well check yesterday, and it’s time, their pediatrician said, to accept that they’ll only be taking one nap a day. My real response: via GIPHY By 10 a.m., my boys are ready for a nap, and so am I. But alas, it is time. Time to accept my one-nap fate. I know, I know. I’m being dramatic. But with

Celebrate! It’s #NationalTwinDay!

It’s a special day. Today, we celebrate the wonderfulness that is TWIN LIFE! Having twins (esp. as my first children) has been the hardest, and yet, most incredible experience.

In fact, I was stockpiling
