Bed time. If you have little ones that word evokes so many emotions!! Joy, because you’ve made it through an exhausting day and will finally have a chance to relax! A little bit of stress because you’ve still gotta make it through the dinner and bathtub hustle, plus you know your babes are gonna do everything in their power to fight falling asleep. Happiness, because seeing your kids play and love each other post-tub is just about the cutest thing. And then when they curl their hand around your finger while reading them stories… well, you get my drift. Bed time is a lot of things!Read More
When I found out I was pregnant with twins I was immediately overwhelmed with fear and anxiety. I was and still am completely unqualified! While four kids in five years was not part of my plan, it’s been the most amazing adventure. These babes keep me on my toes 100% of the time. They keep me learning and moving and our life is so full of chaos! But a good chaos. A happy chaos! Last night was one of those nights though where the chaos wasn’t so happy.

Screen time. Let’s chat about it for a minute! This summer was a rough one for us! We had just moved across the country into a new home, we didn’t have a yard or friends to play with and I have twin 2 year old boys that are so demanding! Little to no screen time would be ideal but the reality this summer was that life got in the way of my best intentions and my big kids were on tablets quite a bit.
There were a few times I thought Boston and Savy were playing with friends outside and while doing laundry I’d find them tucked away in their room watching a show. They were hiding from me because they knew taking a tablet without permission was wrong. Have you ever found yourself in a similar situation?
