The “Emotional” Phase

The Toddler Dudes turned one on March 11.  Approximately 2 weeks later, we had not babies, but TODDLERS.  I don’t mean that they started walking; they’ve been doing that since 10 1/2 months, which was kind of horrifying fantastic because parents of twins always hope for early walkers.  :-/  But moving on, when I say [...]

First-Time Twin Moms: Living in No Man’s Land

When your “first baby” is actually two or more babies, I have a theory that you are instantly transported to a no-man’s land where only other moms who had multiples first will ever live.  Let me take you on a little tour of the land of First-Time Twin Parents.

Two-By-Two: Noah’s Ark Birthday Party

I am still in shock that I have one-year olds walking around my house, but with all the party decor hanging in my house, it’s a pretty constant reminder that they’re big boys now (and also that I need to get myself in gear and undecorate!).  We stuck with our “Two-by-Two: Noah’s Ark” theme. These [...]


Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia

I like fish.  I swear I do.  I don’t however like having my house smell fishy nor do I like fish that tastes fishy.  The idea of fish (healthy, allegedly delicious, good brain food) always sways me into trying new recipes, which I rarely make again when they inevitably disappoint.  I swear restaurants have some [...]

Three-Week Muffin Mix

This bran muffin recipe is one of my favorite breakfast treats, and it’s always a hit with my nieces (ages 9 & 10), too.  My favorite thing about this recipe, though, is that you can make the mix and leave it in the refrigerator for several weeks.  The recipe actually says the mix will be [...]
