Our Story of One Random Act of Kindness //

September 21, 2016

I like to keep it really real on this here blog. And in the spirit of doing so, I have to admit something to you — I know that in the grand scheme of worldly problems? Ours don’t even rank. Yes. Even though I’ve bitched and moaned about Remy since, well, I was pregnant with […]

This weekend was a freaking roller coaster. Friday night Chad and I went on our second date since Remy was born. It was really nice. And super nice of a dear friend to watch the kiddos while we went out. But guess what? Our “date” was only an hour long — and not for lack […]

Preschool // The First 2 Weeks

September 16, 2016

We did it! We made it through the first two weeks of preschool. I was worried I would be a wreck. I was worried he would be a wreck. I was worried we would be all worn out by noon. It turns out none of that was true. I mean it. It’s weird. The first […]

the weekend + our first day of school.

September 10, 2016

Guys. GUYS. I have a preschooler. My heart hurts and is, simultaneously, so overjoyed. What are these feelings!? Ugh! OK, so this weekend was, simply, lovely. Saturday Miss Bea woke up early (of course), and we ended up taking a nap by 8am. We woke up just in time to get ready to go to […]

This is Ari. Remember him? Yeah. Things have been very Remy-focused as of late. But I swear, this kid still lights up my world — and drives me to the nut house — on the daily. Let me just start by saying, I freaking love this age! He’s so … so … awesome! He talks. […]

Surviving Multiples // On The Move

June 28, 2016

Fact: Babies grow up. Fast. Like, really fast. Before they’re born, you wonder how they will look, act, etc. And after they are born you can’t imagine having never held them before. And shortly thereafter you realize that soon they will be mobile. Like, very mobile. Remy may be tiny, but girlfriend is already rolling […]

FriYAY //

June 24, 2016

Today is the only day that I don’t have to work for the next seven days. So I’m ‘taking it easy.’ For those with kids, you understand that ‘taking it easy’ means: running errands; fitting in a workout; cleaning the house; doing loads and loads of laundry; and (fingers crossed) getting both kids to nap.

June 20, 2016

This week I’m hoping for more answers. See, last week I mentioned that we found out some answers from our pediatrician. At the age of 10 months, Ari had a really severe allergic reaction to scrambled eggs, which resulted in an emergency room visit at Akron Children’s hospital. Since then, we’ve had a couple of […]

Busy Livin’ with Lil’ Beanies //

June 18, 2016

It’s no secret that being a mom to a toddler and a newborn baby is hard work. Now, more than ever, I have to stick to my routine and my plan to make sure our days run as smoothly as possible. For me, that means writing out a schedule each night for the following day. […]

Weekend Wrap Up //

June 9, 2016

I mentioned yesterday that I got really sick on Friday afternoon. Truthfully, I was feeling a bit ‘off’ on Friday morning. I thought it was from just lack of sleep. Turns out, I had a ‘bug’ of sorts. I took both kids upstairs to my bed and turned on the TV. I thought if I […]
