It all started innocently enough. The girls were eating toast, I was preparing some oatmeal cereal for Jackson, and I thought I should add some fruit to our breakfast. It was Saturday, why not a special treat for Olivia… I’ll bust out the mandarins. The peak. The high. She abandoned her toast like yesterday’s old… Continue reading Mel-orange-drama
We have thrush. Jackson is taking it like a man. Read: very poorly. Think man-cold. He has man-thrush and he wants his mommy. Since we started treating him with genetian violet (Hence the Why So Serious? face above) he is back to sleeping through the night. He just politely requests that I hold him,… Continue reading code purple
Guys, I have a schoolchild! And also, I did manage to singlehandedly get her and her siblings to school, 15 minutes away, for 8:30. Actually, that’s a lie; it turned out to be 8:35 and 20 minutes, because I live in the depths of not one but THREE other schools (elementary, middle, and high) and… Continue reading Schoolchild?!
In hindsight, I feel a little guilty submitting Olivia to GAP’s ‘model call’ contest. She’s terrible. This side shot, which involved a lot of cropping, was probably one of the closest possible representatives to a ‘’modelled shot” I got a lot of these ‘running away’ type shots. So we know there’s a back. We even… Continue reading Peasant top and a quick brawl
So in case you don’t follow any of the bloggers participating…. I have actually been sewing away almost every day at one thing or another, most of which is for my children, but today I actually have a finished product to display. Simple enough, a peasant top for Olivia in a very cool fabric. I’ll… Continue reading Kids Clothes Week Challenge
So, this was totally one of Those Moments. “Well, they’re being nice and quiet.” 🙂 (long blissful pause, followed by slowly remembering that there is no such thing as Nice And Quiet.) Now, considering this has previously ended in Olivia receiving a haircut from Nicole when she was too small to wiggle away and/or defend… Continue reading Do Not Adjust Your Monitor
So, for Christmas last year and this year, my parents take us and my youngest siblings (the ones that live at home) to Grand Forks for a few days and get us all a hotel room in the Canad Inns Grand Forks, where we spend a lot of time enjoying the waterpark. (We spend a… Continue reading The Incident
So, first of all, I’m excited to share that I’ve been invited to work with CSN Stores again! I’ll be doing a review of one of their products again this time. (My last review is up on their website but I’ll post another one here once I share nursery pictures.) What I am most definitely… Continue reading Another CSN Stores Opportunity and a Giant Squirrel.

Here we get the whole story of the Skunk Drama, including the conclusion, which is fairly tragic all around. If you really love feral skunks maybe skip this blog post because you may find it upsetting. So, we’ve had something – a cat, we thought – attacking our garbage at night this week. Very displeased,… Continue reading Shit, son 2, aka the Skunk Tale
