What the hell!?

What's that saying? "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!"

Allie dresses and undress a.l.l.d.a.y.l.o.n.g. And yes it was just as painful for me to type all of those periods as it is for me to wash all the extra laundry. This outfit is actually "in" though. I double checked the other day, by checking out some teenagers. Who would have ever thought the 80's would come back? I'm throwing in the rag and dressing crazy with her. Who knows it might even be the "in thing" this fall. Fairy princess/pirate/tea party? It could catch on... Someone who has time to keep up with that stuff should post and let me know. Thanks.
Martin is all about his penis right now. He wants it free to experience the world without barriers just like his hands. I guess I can't blame him. I'll spare you the pictures, though- my husband would kill me and I'm sure it's illegal, too. On this day, he felt like his two favorite things should be housed together. Yeah, we had a little talk about protecting mommies future grandkids.
Benito loves his chi chi. I've tried stretching out feedings, crying, a little formula. He's a stubborn little fella and willing to let everyone know it! Whatever!!! I give up!!!
I'm walking around topless with a bebe on my boob, Martin bare butt to the wind like a Scottsman and Allie dressed like the crazy ladies in Grey Gardens. At least the rolls are cute? Well they're all kinda cute, that's why I keep them around. So if you have the stomach to come a callin', please wait about 15minutes for us to open the door after you ring the bell. We'll all be running around getting decent.

I've lost my mojo

I just can't get my swing back.

I decided to cave to peer pressure and enroll my kids in a few classes. Normally, I'd say I'm a play-outside-because-it's-free-and-good-for-you kinda mom and really? aren't classes this young kinda like sex in the hot tub? A waste of time, but you keep trying because somewhere you heard it was fun. Yeah, I quit. We'll wait a few more months and try again... just like we did with...

I feel like I'm just chasing my tail all day long. With the intense swim classes... which totally make me feel like a loser mom who can't keep the house clean, the clothes washed and the peoples fed just because I threw one measly 30 min. class into my schedule... my house is messy and I swear every time I wash the damn clothes they just multiply instead of actually get cleaned and put away. Oh and throw in a little boy who strips down every turn of the hour, a little missy who has a minimum of three tea parties a day - with water - and a bebe who didn't get the memo that it's time to eat every 4-5 hours instead of 2! and there you have it ladies and gents... where I've lost my mojo. I have fond memories of being able to handle it all. Clean floors. Homemade meals. Smiling and laughing with the kids. Brushing my teeth before noon. I'll spare you some of the other details, lest they get back to my extended family which would only result in lots of tsk, tsks and secret phone calls. But there is hope. I quit swim classes to the cheers of a little man in the house - and momma too!-, the weather's nice and if I can just clean my house I might be able to find where in the hell I put my mojo. I'd love to have it back.

A few good finds

When I get a few hours to myself this is what I enjoy doing. A "new" kitchen stool for my babies to sit on while helping me cook. A few cute hankies for our runny noses this fall and a desk for all sorts of coloring and playing school.
