Last night at my house

6:15 or 6:30 – Marc gets home from work, kids are usually already fed and busy destroying the living room 7:15 or 7:30- start process of nagging Jess to put on jammies, wrestling Sam to the ground for a diaper change and night shirt, brush teeth, pee it out, read stories, one per kid. Sam …

Apathy, thy name is Melissa

Just got back from Elm Park… and I’m tired and even though my house is in shambles, I feel like doing nothing. I fed my children, set them up with beans and hot dogs and Max and Ruby – and am officially declaring myself on break for the next twenty minutes or so. Had a …

“Some people hit me with a bat”

Good morning sunshines

Having a bright and beautiful morning here. It’s delightfully overcast and rainy, which is my favorite type of day, especially when I want to be super lazy – when it’s sunny I feel guilty about not being outside (thanks again Mom for instilling that early). Jess has been home sick the past couple of days …
