A Yard Sale Success Story

This weekend was super busy, I will attempt to record it all before I forget everything. So, we decided to have another yard sale.  We had one last year over Memorial Weekend and we got rid of so much stuff then, I wondered if we’d have enough junk to host another sale, but surprise...

Sleeping in the Big Boy Bed

We purchased a big boy bed for Adam last month, but the transition from the crib to the bed was slow-going.   I finally thought he was ready to move out of the crib, but it was hard to seal the deal cuz I kept waiting on dear hubby to take it apart and the...

The art of negotiation

Wendy & Sam wanted to watch different videos.  I told them they had to agree, or work out a compromise or they got to watch nothing.  Wendy opens the negotiation that SHE should pick today’s video and then Sam would get to pick for two weeks.  I suggested she might want to make a...

Sam loves to learn how to do new things and loves to help in the kitchen.  I confess, I’m not always eager to have the kids underfoot, but Mike has been great about teaching them.  Sam and Wendy learned to crack eggs at a young age — I’m pretty sure he had Sam doing...

Today, at dinner, Wendy was self-serving herself some black beans.  As she started to wander off with a heaping bowl and no spoon in sight, I warned, “You better get yourself a spoon or I’ll cut your fingers off!”  (Eating with the fingers is a big pet peeve of mine). She replied, oh so...

This week’s You Capture theme is “Fresh“.   I didn’t have anything in mind, but as we were tooling around the backyard this evening – hubs was grilling up steaks and the kids were playing in the dirt — I knew I wanted to capture the spring flowers in our backyard before they withered away.  ...

You Capture:  Comfort

My little one has been under the weather.  He’s been running a fever for several days now and although he is otherwise generally happy, it has started to wear him out.    Yesterday he lay down on the dirty digusting kitchen rug in front of the oven and drifted off to sleep.  At 11 in...

WFMW:  Date Night on the Cheap

Date Night is important, but unfortunately, there’s no money in the budget right now for babysitters.  So we had to get creative and improvise. The way we currently achieve “Date Night” is by designating one night of the week as Date Night.  It’s currently Tuesdays.  We told our kids (ages 6, 4 and 2)...
