Ground Cashew and Jelly Sandwich
The pantry was bare, and we still had quite a few days left to make our grocery budget stretch. First, I found a surprise loaf of my favorite Costco bread hiding in the deep freezer: Organic Sprouted Honey Wheat with Flaxseed. This stuff is so awesome it defies description.... Permalink

The NEW Trash Can
I believe they say that life is a series of connected moments, if you only you take a step back and look. For today’s life lesson you don’t have to step TOO far back. *  *  *  * Remember the Klepto Babies post last week? The one where A. was throwing things away and silly ME didn’t make the connection?... Permalink

Coffee Drinkers We Are Not.
  This was my Christmas present a few years from various family members. I kid you not. See, Husband and I do not drink coffee. Not only do we not drink coffee, but we don’t even think about coffee…at all.... Permalink

DisneyWorld 2012. WITH KIDS.
Crazy times are here folks…for the first time in 10 years Husband and I will be traveling to DisneyWorld. And for the first time ever, we’ll be going with our own children. Confession: before we had kids Husband and I went to D-World a total of 3 times…in the span of like 5 years. We’re kind of like Disney junkies who are getting ready to jump off the wagon. For context of our previous visits, here are some pictures of past trips to the Happiest Place on Earth:   You get the picture, right? Think CALM, RELAXED, ADULTS ONLY, AND ROMANTIC. *  *  *  *  * In light of these reflection, I think my best course of action is to completely erase ALL expectations and comparisons to previous trips, and try to figure out the best case scenario for traveling with 3 children under the age of 7. Then again, how much trouble could these two (plus their little sister) get into, eh?  ... Permalink

Slave Labor! j/k
I’m a huge fan of chores for kids. More specifically, I think children should have daily chores that are just part of their household duties in addition to “special” chores which they can do to earn a small allowance. Wipe making used to be in the category of fun, but L. has since declared that she thinks it should be an allowance chore. Guess who called in the recruits??... Permalink

Bringing Back the Fun
Do you ever wish you could channel the person you used to be…BEFORE you had kids? I think about this from time to time – not that I in any way wish that I could go back in time; rather that I could go back to being the fun, funny person I’m pretty sure I used to be. [Pregnancy brain from three children has pretty much obscured many of my long term memories.] By the way, the person I used to be is not to be confused with the person I try to be when I have those sudden realizations that I have turned into the proverbial “wet blanket”. So, here’s a pictorial for today of my progression from “Awesome Kelly” to “Awesome Kelly with some room for mood improvement”.       Now let’s cut to my birthday this year… In honor of these musings I pledge to do a funky chicken dance in my living room tonight, to put on some funny bunny ears, or to do something else that I’m pretty sure the Kelly of 10 years ago would do. How about you?... Permalink

My Work in Progress
I have a dirty little secret. It’s my house. And try though I might to keep up with the endless laundry, the chaos of three girls who are not enrolled in any kind of MDO, the dishes [my word – the dishes!] from cooking three meals from scratch a day, the homeschooling,... Permalink
