As we’re getting rid of everything we own and settling into our new place, I can’t help but get excited about breaking out the Christmas decorations. They’re just sitting right in front of my face (in the garage), and it has taken everything I have to wait until this weekend.
“When I think of the bedtime routine with my kids, it’s like this royal coronation jubilee centennial of rinsing, and plaque, and dental appliances, and the stuffed animals semi-circle of emotional support.”
The bedtime routine is not for pansies. You never really know how it’s going to go down.
In my house, we have several, very specific steps to get the toddler to sleep.
One of the most exciting things in the world, (for a budget conscious SAHM), is finding a buy one, get one item at the store that is already on your list.
While shopping the other day, I saw the graham crackers had this very special deal.
Earlier today, my husband said something that was music to my ears.
I love you? Hahahaha!! No. Better.
Instead of telling me he loves me, he’s going to SHOW me he loves me.
He said, “After I take a shower, would you like me to take the kids to the store with me?”
The last few weeks have been some of the most stressful of my life. We’ve been moving out of our house of eight years.
Moving is the worst in general. But after eight years of accumulating stuff and almost four of those years, accumulating baby and kid stuff….there’s a lot of, well, stuff. I’m ready to add an extra two years to our lease just so we can postpone our next move.
Lately the husband has been obsessed with the ever so creepy looking black rice. Also known as “Forbidden Rice.”
I was skeptical the first time I made it. Since I’m useless with a rice cooker (I’m no longer on your “Domestic Goddess” Pedestal, am I?), I cooked it on the stove. It ended up being pretty tasty, hence the new found obsession.
I’ve became acquainted with a lot of different social media outlets since becoming a blogger.
For me, life used to be simple. Facebook was all I knew.
First I would like to thank Marla from A Pendulum World for nominating me for the Virtual Blog Tour Award. I’ve had fun the past few weeks getting to know Marla through her blog. She has such an adorable little boy and she writes about family life and the lessons it teaches her. You can check out my latest favorite post by her here.
We finally made the big move!
Do you know what sucks more than packing all your
shit stuff up? Trying to unpack with two toddlers. I feel as if there’s been a steady scream inside my head for the past five days.
