The Projectile Vomit

I have seen the stuff of legend; I have actually seen the projectile vomit…live, in action. Annalie, Story, Caragh and I are nursing colds. With all of us having colds, it adds that extra dimension of nifty to our days and nights. As any parent will tell you, we (parents, that is) do most activities in […]

My Christmas Wish List

My Christmas Wish List #1 To sleep through the night and awake in the morning refreshed and ready to go again. #2 To sit in the evening and at about 7pm have the twins both just fall asleep and stay asleep as we lower them into their cribs. #3 To have a conversation, a conversation […]

Heinz Baby Food Recall

Just when we have started our twins on solid food, the news came across that Heinz has recalled some of their Mixed Baby Cereal because it contains a possible carcinogen. YIKES. It should be interesting to see how Heinz handles this product recall. Hopefully they do not have the same public relations people as Tiger […]

Life Perspective

It is funny to occasionally stand up and look back through the stages of your life. It is particularly interesting to look back at life pre-twins. Want to go the pub for a beer and nachos? Not a problem. Go to the cabin for a weekend? Not a problem. Load the dog and a cooler in the car […]
