Happy Wordless Wednesday, y’all!

I hope your children’s toys are better behaved than mine! 😉  In the meantime, have your children’s toys been naughty lately, too?  All I know is the “boy baby” -as Carol calls him- was hitting, so got an immediate time out.

My first born turned FOUR on Friday, which was followed by her check-up. She not only did fine, but worked her usual charm on the nurses and doctors.

Throughout the appointment, I kept hearing Doc McStuffins sing “time for your check-up.” 🙂

Happy (not so) Wordless Wednesday, y’all!

Wordless Wednesday: PINK Girls and Chunky Babies

Today was the first day back at school for my daughter, so she naturally felt compelled to show off her new pink threads.

Little guy had his one-year check-up this morning, too.

Both are doing quite well, but only ONE is sleeping off the ensuing traumas from their morning. 😉

My daughter spent the day with my parents yesterday, and came home with some of the chocolate chip cookie they made. Apparently, she’s a (chocolate) chip off the ol’ block!

Happy Wednesday, y’all!

This weekend as I watched my son start rocking back and forth, with his arms and legs pushed up in crawling stance, I can’t help but recall when I was about seven or eight. My mom would playfully push on the top of my head and remark, “stop growing up so fast!”


I now know what you mean, Mom. I know what you mean.

Wordless Wednesday: Sleepovers and Letting Go

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



A few nights ago, my daughter had her first sleepover. Other than the two whirlwind nights I spend in the hospital when her brother was born, I’ve never been apart from her for the night. So, while it was difficult for me to let me to let her spend the night away from me, I knew she was in good hands. After all, she was at my parents house.  Literally down the street.  And I knew it was an experience she needed to have.  I needed to have it, too.


While I weep for the loss of each new stage in her life -yearning to hold on to even the smallest pieces of my “little” girl, I can’t help but feel excitement.  I have nothing but fond memories of spending the night at my grandparents houses, and I want nothing more than for her to build such memories with the people she loves as well.

Happy Wednesday, y’all!
