    At approximately 7 a.m. Thursday morning, a crime took place at my house. The culprit, a 28-lbs white male with blue eyes and curly blonde hair, was spotted in my bedroom. My husband and I awoke to tiny footsteps that echoed like elephants running a sprint down the hallway. Soon after we heard giggles. However, this time there were three giggles, and that meant [...]

    You can forget all the toys we have in our house. My 23-month-old son would rather play with the vacuum cleaner. In fact, Siler is pretty much obessed with the vacuum cleaner. I’m not exactly sure what he finds so appealing about the vacuum. Maybe he  likes the loud noise that it makes, which is interesting considering his big brother and sister were scared of [...]

    Lately I’ve felt like I’m trapped inside the children’s book “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.”  Only in my version of the story, I have three monkeys, and my little monkeys are breaking their arms instead of bumping their heads. I could hardly believe it myself when Eli, my oldest son,  broke his arm last week just one week after my youngest son [...]

    Thanks to my little guy, Siler, I should have arms more ripped than Michelle Obama by spring. Of course, I also may need back surgery, too. I spend my days repeatedly lifting 27 lbs. of wiggly toddler weight. I officially have toddleritis, which I define as the exhaustion and aches and pains of keeping up with a toddler. Siler’s constantly climbing on the kitchen [...]

    All-purpose flour really does have all different kinds of purposes. I discovered an interesting new use for it—a backdrop for a ridiculously fun photo shoot. I was mixing up cookie dough with Mila and Eli, and sneaky little Siler came to the table and pulled down the flour canister that I had just moments before filled to the top. What a colossal mess! [...]

    My family experienced a Christmas miracle last Sunday at Cookies with Santa. I actually got a decent family photo. The Mothers of Multiples club that I’m a member of  hosts the event each, and the Santa is quite authentic. Of course, this was the one year I didn’t go to the trouble of coordinating festive outfits for my children to wear. If I had [...]

    It’s Dec. 1, and Siler finally got dressed up in his Halloween costume for pictures. I guess that officially qualifies me as slacker mom. In my defense, I did take pictures the week after Halloween, but he still had that lovely green drainage pouring from his nose. I should really erase those ghastly pictures from my hard drive in case Siler’s ever on American [...]

    Now that Siler has turned one, we’re saying bye-bye to bottles. It’s been a rocky transition so far. I’ve witnessed some major meltdowns this week. Siler’s dramatic displays have included crying, shrieking, turning red in the face and falling on the floor in protest. I may have a stubborn little boy on my hands! It’s difficult retraining my little guy when we had a [...]

    Expectant parents spend countless hours trying to choose the perfect name for their children. After all, selecting a name for your child is an important job. You want something that you really like since you’ll be saying—sometimes yelling—that name for the rest of your life. The humorous thing about all the time expectant parents spend dwelling over baby names is that once the baby [...]

    There are some things I’m so thankful that I don’t remember going through as a baby. Teething is one of them. Poor baby Siler is cutting his two front teeth. He is a crank pot right now, and he’s been drooling nonstop like that dog in the Tom Hanks movie “Turner & Hooch.” I really feel for the little guy. I know how painful [...]
