Parenting is…

Incredible. Overwhelming. Exhausting. Terrifying. Challenging. Rewarding. Tricky. Testing. In a word...hard. What parent hasn't felt desperate for help, answers, and wisdom in knowing how to raise their child(ren)? Which of us hasn't watched a screaming baby who's been fed, changed, and burped and yet refuses to be calmed or cuddled...at 3am? What parent hasn't wondered what in the world to do with a toddler who refuses to go near the potty...and considered how bad it would be for him to actually go to college with Huggies? Who hasn't stared back at an 8 year old with an attitude the size of Texas and wondered how she got you to argue back with her for the past five minutes? Which … [Read more...]

18 Month Update

Ohmygoodness. It’s just sososo hard to believe that my babies are 18 months old! The time has flowwwwwwn by; they’ve changed so much…and in just 18 months! From 3lbs 12 oz to 22 pounders, my little M&Ms have transformed seemingly overnight.

Potty Training!!!

I know I'm a ways away from this season, but it never hurts to be prepared, right??? My poor hubby is very eager to move beyond the diaper changing stage - probably because he changes between 6 and 15 diapers a day!!! But I keep trying to explain to him what that season will look like. I remember when my youngest brothers were being potty-trained (sorry, Daniel and Caleb =). And babysitting young children who were potty-training. But potty training THREE??? Ohhhhh my. My Facebook groups for MoMs of triplets and other HOMs are often cheering each other on as various MoMs announce their plans to spend the upcoming weekend potty-training. So I know it's going to be a daunting task to … [Read more...]
