• there's a first time for everything

    and one of mine came today. i was peed on by my baby. sounds gross to say it that way, but how else do you phrase it? besides, it is gross. all those years of baby-sitting and being a nanny and i never had that happen. i get my own kids and a few days later, one of them lets loose. thanks little guy. i guess my time has been coming.

  • on being a mom last night and this morning

    i got in the shower last night at 11pm. i have found it’s easier to take a shower at night while the children are sleeping vs. trying to juggle three children, a dog, breakfast, and a husband getting ready for work. while finishing showering, josh knocked on the door and peeked his head in. he was holding our daughter who had obviously been crying. i told them i was just getting ready to get out of the shower and he closed the door. i called for him asking if she had to go potty. she did. i wrapped myself in my towel so she could come in. she was very…

  • mother's day

    today we begin our first day as a family. everything went really well yesterday with picking up the kids. and last night went really well too. getting our middle one to sleep proved to be quite the challenge, but it finally happened. and, it only took about an hour. poor little guy. everything is going well this morning too. the kids are bright eyed and bushy tailed. breakfast is over, playtime has begun, and it’s only 8:15am. josh and i on the other hand are not bright eyed and bushy tailed, but we’re making it. i think it will take us a few days to get used to this schedule.…
