We's Back

Do you like it when I talk gangster to you?

Anywho . . . .

We are back from vaca. I noticed that I'm always feeling like a need a vacation but I take vacations pretty frequently. Is that wrong?

The munchkins were SO happy to see me. Even though I felt bad that they were so desperate for me when they saw me, I kind of liked it. Last time we were gone a long time they were just like, weird, do I know you? when they saw us but this time they definitely knew that we were gone and we are their parents and they were thrilled we were back. This didn't allow much room for us to pawn them off on family because they wanted to be with us all the time, but it was really sweet to see them so in love with us.

Ever is growing a lot of hair and I like it. She is a huge flirt and even though I laugh now I don't think I will be laughing in the future.

Ocean is having some tantrum issues and to be honest, it's pretty annoying. I have realized that I am the parent that I have always thought sucks. I know I need to lay the smack down, but whenever I lay the smack down and he starts crying and looking up at me with those huge gorgeous brown peepers I cave in. Ugh . . . .

Sleeping in one bed as family of four is a bad idea. Especially when you have a little violent nugget that will kick her brother's ass in the middle of the night just because he is close to her. And then your heart breaks a little when the sweet boy wakes up in the morning and gives his sissy a pat on the face and smiles at her even though she opened a can of whoop ass on him in the middle of the night and made him cry (she literlly kicked and hit him for touching her).

Ever has a new habit of playing with my arm fat. It makes me uncomfortable at all times, but in public it is especially bad. I don't know what is so amusing about my arm fat, but I really wish she wouldn't draw attention to it. It has to be gross to others. I have never heard anyone say "wow, look how cute that is! That baby is having such a fun time playing with her mommy's fat like play dough. Adorbs!" No. It's gross.

The babies love having screaming contests. Again, so funny, but not funny. I know they are like bebe's kids in public and not everyone finds twin screaming competitions as adorable as their mommy does and I need to make it stop. BUT, the joy on their faces is priceless. They are so stinking cute.




Many of you asked, so I will answer: my grad school application is for Human Resource Management. There is one little glitch in my plan and that is follow through. I know my personal statement and my transcripts will be good but I need three reference letters. The thing is, I didn't really ever bond with my college professor's and I have really only had one main consistent job since I graduated college so that is only one reference. What do I do? Help!


  1. Your pictures are always so beautiful! I need to learn how to properly use my camera! Ha. :)

  2. They are so sweet. Glad you had a nice vacation - I'm jealous!

  3. Yay! Welcome back! Glad you had a good time and got some lovin' from those cute kiddos! Can't help you much on the grad application. Sorry - I was just like you! :P Back on the baby front - I love the "I'm kind of a big deal" shirt!

  4. Ask your boss now to write a letter for you. You can help him/her write it. Have it comment on your abilities not as an employee but rather as a potential for management material in your workplace (good communication skills, leadership abilities, etc).

    You need those letters of rec from profs, though. Don't be afraid to ask. Grad school wants to see/hear about your ability to succeed as a student, so best to find old profs with papers you saved that were good. You can send them a copy and your transcript and they will write the letter. Trust me. I do it all the time. As long as the student got an A or B, I will usually write something positive.

  5. I'm laughing about the whole Ever playing with your arm fat in public thing. My daughter thinks it's hilarious to pull the neck of my shirt and stick her face in the doctor's office, in the grocery name the place, and she's probably done it there. Turtleneck weather can't get here fast enough! You always have the best pictures of Ocean and Ever, but I must Ever on a pool table???

  6. The arm fat fun just cracked me up! I hope your vacation really was mentally and physically relaxing and that you and hubbs are doing better.
    I'm so jealous - Davie doesn't really act like she misses us or anything yet. I can't wait to see that excitement! :) And you get it times two!

  7. The eyelashes! I would be powerless around those eyelashes!!!
    Glad you had a good vacation! I'm still catching up from our 2 weeks in NY.
    Adorable pics!

  8. Oh my the pictures!! O and E are just too precious for words!!! Glad y'all had a good weekend away:)

  9. I've been reading your blog for a long time now (since before your pregnancy) and really enjoy your witty, down-to-earth style of writing. As a mom of two little ones I can relate to so much of what you post. I want to encourage you with regard to your grad school aspirations and also on working on your marriage. Being 15 years out of grad school and 12 years into my marriage, I can say with confidence that both accomplishments are worth the sweat and stress. I would encourage you to consider asking the folks from the foster parent agency to write you a letter of recommendation and echo the comments from the previous poster about getting at least one letter from a professor. They typically are accustomed to writing them for students that they don't know well.

    I have a quick question. What make/model of digital camera do you use? Your photos always look great. I know you have some talent at photo composition, so I don't assume that it is all due to the type of camera you're using. We're in the market for a new camera, so I thought I'd ask.

  10. Glad I'm not the only one who lets my kids sleep in bed with me ; )

    Good for you for going back to school!!! I know that it will suck and be hard at times, but once you finish, you'll feel such a sense of accomplishment.


Thanks for stopping by! Sorry, no anonymous comments, if you can't put your name on it it's just no fun!
