I guess the twins did not get the memo about the clocks all being moved back an hour last night. Ususally at 6pm we take them upstairs and bathe them, get them into clean sleeping sacks, argue about how much baby powder to use on them (I err on the side of never too much) read […]
In support of the fund-raiser for mens’ health issues I have decided to shave my beardy-thing off and sport a moustache for the month of Movember. I suppose I will now have to look into how the fund-raining aspect of this process works. I was hoping Greenpeace would not hear about this shaving today, it […]
So after our exhausting day with the twins yesterday we couldn’t even bring ourselves to make a salad for dinner. We were so wiped out I was sent out of the house to forage for food for us. Being semi-vegetarian this is sometimes a bit of an adventure. Semi-veggie to us means that we will […]
To the individual who emailed me to ask, “How do you come up with all this stuff” the answer is simple; I just go out the front door of my house. This is our life. I don’t think I could make this stuff up if it did not actually happen to us. Welcome to our world.
Story and I are home from our Sunday breakfast at Quan’s Kitchen, our local diner. Story behaved like a little angel this morning saying that the extra hour of sleep made her feel so much more rested this morning. Personally, I thought it just gave her another on-the-hour opportunity to wake up. Whatever it did, she […]
Some have commented that I seem, well, let’s say, “gruff” with the people around me and the customer service people I encounter. And yes, this is in response to the emails I received re my Sears portrait experience and my offer to have Paul McCallum kick a field goal between the uprights of the next […]
So the tears have stopped, the cries have abated, the twins are in bed asleep and I have a glass of Vino Collapso (wine from a box, surprisingly nice wine from a box I might add) in hand. What happened? Well, first off, we had scheduled with Sears a 10am portrait shoot for our twins. It […]
Want to spoil a perfectly sunny Saturday? Schedule your twin daughters in for an early morning Halloween photo shoot at your local Sears photo studio. More a little later…after the ringing stops in my ears and I am able to sit down comfortably without weeping uncontrollably.
Funny scene in the house today. Caragh was downstairs visiting her mother (she had a stroke a couple of years back and is paralysed except her right arm and her jaw which never stops moving…I’ll probably hear about this comment, but what the hell…) and I was taking care of the twins in the living-room. Annalie […]
Yesterday I saw the funniest exchange on Facebook. First mother; “I buy the best educational toys I can for my baby and all they want to play with is the kitchen utensils.” Next, “My kid loves to play with the cardboard box his diapers came in.” Final mom says, “My son likes to play with […]
