Bedtime Squirming and Screaming Troubles

Bedtime has become a bit of a nightmare around here in the last couple of weeks. Brown Bear in particular hates to lie down and have her clothes and diaper removed. She squirms about so much that it is really tough to get her ready for her bath. And then post-tub… Holy crapola. She has a bit […]

A Merry Christmas to All…

Well it certainly has started out as a very merry Christmas here at our house. As per usual, Annalie woke me up at 2:30am demanding a couple bottles of milk and a diaper change. I obliged her, as I usually do. This was after Story had woken up at 11pm and decided that the night […]

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 […]

Blonde Bear moves into her own room

In a big move for Blonde Bear, and perhaps bigger for her mother, Blonde Bear has moved from our bedroom into her own bedroom. She has been sleeping in her own room since about 7pm (it is now 10:15pm). She has woken a couple of times and I have raced up the stairs with a […]

The weekend wrap up

Nice quiet day today. It started with our weekly trip to Quan’s Kitchen for breakfast. It was a pleasant surprise this week because my buddy Terry brought his son along for brekkie. By the time Story and I got home it was nap time for the girls. I managed to get Annalie to sleep quite […]

A lovely weekend sleep-in

It is up and at ’em for another day! Story is in the exersaucer…a device brought to us from an Afghani prison used to torture prisoners by preventing them from sleeping. It is similar in sound to someone gently taking all the plates, bowls and mugs from your kitchen, putting them in a plastic garbage […]

The new sleep pattern as dictated by the twins

The girls have decided to alter the evening/night schedule. As usual they have their tub between 6 and 6:30pm, have a feast and then into bed by about 7pm. They sleep quite peacefully, sometimes stirring a little, but sleep until 10:30pm. Then they figure it is time to get up. Story in particular let’s everyone on the […]

Meeting for The Vancouver Observer contributors

This afternoon/evening I was attending a meeting of the bloggers who contribute to the Vancouver Observer. It was a pleasure to talk with other bloggers in person, rather than only meeting up online. The most amazing thing for me though was the fact that after the meeting business was taken care (how to upload using Drupal), […]

Stealing away for snuggles and cuddles

Last night I took the opportunity to sneak away from the business I am currently involved in and went home to see the girls. It was so very cool to be back at home, even after only being away for two days, and see the babies. Of course, and obviously so, Caragh did not want me to […]

Daylight savings time

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 […]
