Twin Tips: Surviving Sickness with Twins plus Two

My heart breaks when my babies are hurting. It's got to be the worst feeling ever to see them in pain. Last Sunday, Kate had a virus and then Clara got it a few days later, despite our attempts to sanitize and separate.

Mommy Review Monday: Baby Banana TeetherĀ 

Both Clara and Kate started teething over 4 months ago. We quickly realized we needed some teethers that were easy for them to use.

It may be just me, but I think the… Continue reading Photo Friday: Spring School Photos

We will soon be embarking on a road trip to Branson. Google maps tells us it will take 7 hours and 51 minutes. We will have a few stops with the kiddos, so we are estimating 10 hours.  Ten hours in the car with a 7 and 5 year old, plus 9 month old twins.… Continue reading Road Tripping with a Real Map
