The twins are at the end of their first year of big school, and they have grown a lot in Kindergarten. Here are their spring pictures on the wall. Aren’t they cute? They are learning to read and write as well. This is exciting because is means that they no longer have to be limitedContinue reading “They are getting smarter”
Last night I was putting the twins to bed and they were putting me through the wringer. I don’t know about other moms, but bedtime is a particularly difficult time for me to hold on to patience. For one thing, all the “nice” has been leaking out of me all day, and by 8 p.m.Continue reading “Love You Forever”
In addition to Pajama Day, they had Crazy Hair Day last week at the twins’ school. Little Girl flat-out refused to take part, but Little Boy enjoyed letting me make his hair “crazy.” Isn’t that the cutest thing ever?!
Last week they had pajama day at the elementary school. The twins were beyond excited. Boo, however, was less enthused. In fact, she’d actually slept in her clothes the night before and had changed onto her PJ’s for school. At least she didn’t go through the dramatics of last year, where she worried about beingContinue reading “Pajama Day”

One morning Boo asked to be awakened early to finish her schoolwork. She left three notes for me around the house about it. This caused her father to wake her up at 4 a.m. ( “I didn’t know how early she meant,” he claimed.) She groaned and went back to sleep. Dude. NOBODY meansContinue reading “How Early is Early?”
So my reward for giving the twins an awesome birthday complete with McDonald’s dinner and ice cream dessert was finding in the car the next morning: two half empty soda cups festering in the cup holders and two containers half full of melting ice cream dripping on the seats. I cleaned that all up whileContinue reading “Birthdays are Messy”
Last week, after I’d dropped off the kids at school, I came back and took Boo a notebook she’d forgotten in the car. (This effort did not seem to earn me any points with her, by the way. She barely gave a backwards glance, much less a thank you. But I digress.) Still, it affordedContinue reading “Parental Shell-Shock”
