A Mom’s Precious Memories

So, my babies are still little. The oldest is 26 months and the youngest is 7 months (time is moving fast). The oldest knows all of his alphabets (upper and lowercase) by sight (he still does not know the Alphabet song but he can call out all the letters). My youngest is crawling (hands and knees) and pulling up on everything. I know that she will be walking soon. I try to capture it all with video and photos and I try to record it all down. Time is just flying by and some days I wish it would slow down (just a bit). I came across a video that I recorded around the time that my oldest started walking.

I hope that you have a wonderful Tuesday!

Baby Clothing Online Window Shopping

With two kids, the easiest way to go shopping is online. I can sit at the computer when they are asleep and take my time finding cute clothes. I don’t have to worry about people looking at me with the ‘I feel sorry for you face’ because one or both of the children are crying. Even when they are not crying, I am anxious the whole time anticipating an unhappy child. So, online shopping is for me stress-free and easy. Here are a few cute kid finds.

Can I please get a Nanny and Personal Chef? And if you are feeling generous, can you throw in a Housekeeper?

Being a Mom means that you wear a lot of different hats. We manage to do it all and still keep our sanity (at least on most days). My life would be so much easier if I had a Nanny, Personal Chef, and a Housekeeper. I would have so much free time to do things that people without kids take for granted like taking a long shower or bath, taking a walk by myself, leaving on the spur of the moment, and going out on dates with my husband. Though it would be nice to have all of those people helping me, I love my life and I enjoy my time with family. My babies will only be little for a short while and I plan on enjoying every moment (even when they are throwing tantrums and crying for no reason at all). Today, I wanted to highlight items that help to make my daily life easier.

Smiles :) and Cries :(

“It is all about smiles and cries.


You gotta control your smiles and cries because that’s all you have, and nobody can take that away”.

I loved that quote from ‘Training Day’ and Marley is adorable so I could not resist.
