GRRRR I’m so annoyed!!! I took some photos this morning and I was going to share them with you but somehow they didn’t end up on my CF card!!!! What the heck?? There was a beautiful moment this morning. I had spilled cheerios all over my kitchen floor and decided to clean it up after… Continue reading Blah blah blah blah blah blah
Isaac….ohhhhhhhh Isaac. He makes my life very complicated. I didn’t think having a second child was that hard at first. Once mobility struck us, the hard meter went waaaaaaay up. I was thinking the other day about how much I could get done in a day when it was just Silas and I. Darling Silas… Continue reading Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh Isaac
First and foremost, there’s new Zaza bags up. Linda made most of these are they’re lovely. Hopefully one will pop out at you!! It’s always nice to go camping and it’s always SUPER nice to get home, have a shower and collapse in your own, clean bed. Camping was SO much fun. We had our… Continue reading Yay Camping!
I often find myself in my kid’s rooms every night, staring at their faces, trying to kiss them and smell them as much as possible without waking them up. There’s nothing as adorable as a sleeping child so I try to somehow embed their image in my mind so I can remember it later. The… Continue reading Sleeping Babies
We got Silas’ Medic Alert bracelet yesterday. What an odd thing to see on my own little darling’s hand but I think it’s necessary. I wasn’t going to get one just yet but the parents on the allergy board made a very good point. I thought I was with Silas all the time so he… Continue reading Medic Alert
Slowly coming back to life while her body fights off the last of the evil throat infection, Leah finds herself able to sit at the computer. Having given up on eggs and letting her savage son Silas devour most of them, she tries to swallow the last bits of food and collect her thoughts. Her… Continue reading You Can Do It
I’m having coffee today, it’s a coffee day. It’s actually a coffee and Baileys day but since I’m without Baileys, I guess I’m just drinking coffee. Silas is downstairs having a massive temper tantrum because he wants a bite of wrap. I have many bites I’ve pre-torn for him that are sitting right beside me.… Continue reading Bring Me Baileys!!
Well, we are back to the grind after a lovely May Long Weekend at my parent’s house. Gosh, it’s so stinking beautiful out there. So quiet and the air smells so nice. It still feels like home to me. My parents were AMAZING in making their house 100% peanut free for us. They just took… Continue reading Great Trip
Isaac (Ikey, puppy, bear, buffalo, Ikey Okie Oh, Ikey Bikey Boo, Ike-aroni, zazazoozoo, chim chim) has decided his little feet are made for walkin and is using them for that quite often now. The little munchkin. WHO DOES HE THINK HE IS ANYWAY!??? Sorry. He’s just so cute and naughty. He does this little side… Continue reading Ikey Bikey Boo
We’re on the countdown until Isaac gets to one year. I can’t believe we’re so close!! He’s changing very quickly now. He’s just cut 3 teeth, all in the wrong order just like Silas. Not AS wonky…but close. I swear that comes from his Dad’s side because Lucas did the same thing. But poor baby,… Continue reading Ikey Ikey Ikey…and some gardening stuff 🙂
I’m finding myself feeling more and more like I have absolutely nothing to say some days. C’mon creative Leah brain, do your job! Silas has taken to his new bed rather nicely. He was getting up yesterday and bringing toys into his bed when he should have been napping but he eventually settled down to… Continue reading Oh…This and That.
Today is a day where I just want to say ARRRRGGGG!! I am so frustrated with how vicious Silas is with Isaac. He pushes, pulls, slaps and scratches and, as of late, it seems to be going on constantly. If I turn my back to do something, quite often I hear a slap. I can’t… Continue reading At My Wits End!
When a person becomes a mother they tend to try to hold onto themselves in certain (small) ways. I think kids pick up on this and then try to sabotage your efforts to maintain full focus on themselves. Let’s share a few examples shall we? I usually buy those cheap facial brushes to wash my… Continue reading Little Bratty Sabotagers
I have a question for you… What do you get when you mix a 2 year old with a bowl of popcorn, a cup of juice and Oprah and stick him on the potty???….. YAY PEE PEE!!! That was actually the 2nd time on the potty yesterday and his 2nd, 3rd, 4th… Continue reading YAY PEE PEE!
I get this feeling every night as I sneak into my children’s room and tuck them in while they sleep. I feel completely and totally vulnerable. For some reason seeing my sleeping children remind me of how delicate they are, how easily they could slip from my fingers. My hear suddenly fills with this feeling… Continue reading A Mother’s Love
