Whew. Well the last 2 months have flown by. Or dragged. I'm not really sure...but I do know that I've had a lot of wine, a lot of coffee, and this season of Odd Mom Out is better than the last. I can't try to recap the last two months or my head will explode… Continue reading Bless this mess.
The babies are 5 weeks old today and have been at home with us for 3! But really it feels like they've been here for 10 years - and that's mostly because I'm exhausted and cross-eyed.We're holding up pretty well around here and Max has gone from wanting the babies gone to wanting to be… Continue reading Seibel, party of 5
To read what lead up to our little NICU stay, check out the twins' birth story. The morning after the babies were born I popped out of bed at 6am, showered, straightened my hair and was ready to take on the day. Mind you, we had gone to bed at 5am so I was running… Continue reading Our NICU Stay
In the days leading up to the boys' birth, I spent a lot of time crying and a lot of time lying in the bathtub. I hurt, I was tried, I couldn't find anything to drain my pasta in - I was a maniac.

Before the Internet, how… Continue reading Attack of the sleepy toddler.
One month has flown by since my last post. We've used every spare space in our brains to work out the logistics of the little boys' arrival. The hardest for me has been what to do about work. Attempting to make money while having three tiny, tiny children in daycare is next to impossible - and it's not… Continue reading What’s a thigh gap?
Lots of people ask what the difference is between carrying one baby and two and here is the best way I can find to describe it: When I was pregnant with Max I worked out four times per week. I had him on a Wednesday, worked out that Monday, cleaned the entire house on Tuesday,… Continue reading I cried because I couldn’t mop.
You know those perfect-storm mornings when your 10 year old cat is rebelling against your second pregnancy and poops in the office, your toddler wakes up an hour early, you wake up an hour late and your 95 pound dog has cabin fever and won't leave you alone?
