Seriously Thursday

1. This morning Ever and I were playing round and round on the hardwoods in the kitchen. My glasses fell off so I tried to catch them quick before they hit her in the face. While trying to catch them, I let go of my child who then hit the back of her head on the hardwood floor. Seriously, wtf? She would have been hit in the head with a pair of glasses that weigh all of an ounce and instead her whole body hit the hardwoods. DUMB!

2. I am seriously in love with Friday Night Lights. I think I like that show so much because it is so real. Not everyone in America lives in a shiny white suburb with granite counter tops and a brand new gigantic SUV. In fact most people don't, it's really nice to see that in action on TV.

3. Seriously . . . my house is disgusting. I just can't clean it! It will be clean by Saturday, it will be clean by Saturday, it will be clean by Saturday . . . that's what I keep telling myself! Except it would be more effective to actually start cleaning instead of just talking about it though.

4. This seriously made me cry . . . .

My stomach looks exactly like this (except for the belly ring, I am so not into body piercings, not even ears)! I think this person has a great attitude and I'm going to try and adopt it. The quote says "A mark for every breath you took, every blink, every sleepy yawn.One for every time you sucked your thumb, waved hello, closed your eyes, and slept in the most perfect darkness. One for every time you had the hiccups. One for every dream you dreamed within me. It isn't very pretty anymore. Some may even think it's ugly. That's OK. It was your home.It held you until my arms could, and for that, I will always find something beautiful in it." Gorgeous, right?

5. I seriously used hubby's face shaver to shave my pubes. This has been the #1 rule from hubby, NEVER use his face shaver on my pubes. But I have this disease where when someone tells me not to do something I get the overwhelming urge to do it. In my defense, it has been nearly eight years since this rule was instated and I just now did it! I wasn't going to tell him until I heard him turn it on the other morning for his once a week beard trim and I was like "umm, honey, I need to tell you something . . . ."

6. Seriously . . . if one more person tries to aggravate me about the whole dairy thing I am going to freak out. My children drink soy milk because 1. They like it and 2. Milk is made for baby cows. That is the point of it. My children are people, not cows, so I don't really want them to have it. I let them try it, they do NOT like it. There is just as much nutrition in the soy milk. Then when a doctor tells me to make sure they are going to get 3 servings of other dairy, I'm like WHAT? That still comes from milk ding dong. I do let them have one cheese and one yogurt at home because they like it and it doesn't bother me as much as them guzzling 30 ounces of straight milk a day. Sheesh. It's not a big deal people.

7. I am so seriously exhausted. I don't know what the problem is but I am drained. My children have gone on sleep strike this week. It is wearing me out . . . . .

8. My babies, my little bitty boo bears are EIGHTEEN MONTHS old on Saturday. Seriously!?!? How did that happen? Tear. We went to the doc yesterday and here are there stats:

Osh: 24 lbs 13 oz (35th percentile) and 33.25 inches (80th percentile). He also has a big ass head which I already knew because he screams every morning when I put his shirts on.
Ever: 22 lbs 2 oz (19th percentile) and 31.5 inches (47th percentile). She has a peanut head.

The twins are obsessed with slides right now . . .




  1. I am with you on the house cleaning thing. I do not have twins but I would way rather spend time with my kids then clean the house. I love the picture of the stomach and the quote.

  2. oh the stretch marks. WOW. i couldn't agree more about the housecleaning part either... it is NEVER ending.

    hahaha-his shaver on the PUBES! I DIED! (i totally do the same... shhh)

    good for you for sticking to what you believe in, about the soy milk, let those hateres hate!

  3. What's up with the milk issue? Who knew that would be an issue? And why does anyone care what your kids eat?

    I love pubing up my hubs shaver, and I am proud of it!

  4. So, #4 made me start crying only to burst out laughing at #5! I don't think I've had that big a swing of emotions since those post-partum hormones after E was born!

    And, the milk frustrating! I get the same pressure from some people, only it's the daughter hated soy milk and used to cry when I would just take the carton out of the fridge, so she drinks cow's milk. Why can't people just realize that a mother knows what is best for her child???

  5. OMFG-I just busted out loud reading your post. I think I may have seriously peed a little (damn you post twin bladder!).

    I totally hear you on the body image thing. My stomach looks even worse than that. My stretch marks are really wide and go up way past my belly button. It sucks and I am also having a hard time coming to grips with the lose skin and the seemingly large FUPA in my pants. I think we will get better with it with time... especially as we see these people with rocking bodies who are miserable and have no kids. At least that is what I am going to tell myself!

  6. Love the pic!! Cute smiles!!

    I would never actually come out and say "ignore your pediatrician"... but, you know, just tell him, "OK" and go on about your life. :-)

  7. I started laughing VERY loudly when I got to #5, and my husband turned around to look at me like I'm a crazy person. It's because I've totally done the exact same thing! Hahahaha. I think every wife has, really.

    I love the picture, and I especially love the quote below. How very beautiful.

  8. #4 almost made me cry. It is such a positive way to consider the belly flubber.

    #5 - Yes, I've done it and no, I haven't told DH. I've also used his beard/mustache trimmer.

    What's the deal with people and milk? Seriously, however you can get the proper nutrients for your kids, go with it. Obviously, they are growing just fine. Smile and nod at the doctor....they don't always know the best thing for your kids.

    What is it at this age and kids starting to wake up more? My little man is almost 18 months and has been waking up once a night and fussing in his sleep for the past 2 weeks. Enough already! I need my sleep. I feel like a zombie most of the time.

  9. I AM LOVING YOUR BLOG AND YOUR HONESTY! The quote was amazing:)

  10. I LOVE the tummy pic :) Davie had been on a sleep strike since her six month shots, and she's almost 8 months now! She wakes up at least twice a night and some nights it's every couple of hours. *sigh*

  11. My belly looks like that too! But what a beautiful quote! Your twins are adorable! Mine just turned 2 and my daughter is so much smaller than my son! He weighs like 6 pounds more and is a few inches taller. Glad to see you're doing so well!


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