I have learned just a bit about boys through the years, but the crazy part is they still don’t make a lot of sense to me. Maybe if I’d grown up with boys, or if I had ever in my life exhibited even the slightest teensiest bit of tomboy in me it would be different. [...]
Although I haven’t done any funny kid conversations or sayings lately, trust me it isn’t because they don’t happen on a daily basis. There are far too many times when we need to keep a straight face and deal with something calmly and seriously with them and simply have to leave the room to get [...]
I have always cut all my boys’ hair. I actually began cutting even hubby’s hair about 6 months after we got married. Salesman has always liked longer hair styles and likes to try to find ways out of getting his hair trimmed. He’s creative and tends to attempt persuasion and distraction to get out of [...]
Being a family of 8 with 1 (yes one) bathroom we definitely face a few challenges now and then.

So as you know, the twins are an endless source of craziness, and laughter. They have the funniest ideas, translations and dreams. When they wake up in the morning it isn’t uncommon for one or both of them to have a lot (and I mean a lot) to say. The subject matter is different all [...]
As you can imagine, there’s a lot of interesting events, conversations and happenings in life with 6 boys. All of us have things we swear we’d never say to our children…and most of us have caught ourselves saying them anyway. But recently I have discovered that there are quite a few things I have said in [...]
