The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…
The day you’ve dreamed of for years has finally arrived! Your little girl is all grown up and has chosen a partner to start her life with, and you are officially a MoB -- Mother of the Bride! While congratulatory remarks are appropriate at this juncture, so are a few…
This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm a mother of 3 kids, an almost 3 year-old boy and 6 month-old b/g twins. With no history of twins in the family and not in a high risk group, we were very surprised by the twins. We lucked out with an amazing au pair and now we're living in the zoo that is having more than 2.3 kids. I'm also the coach of a university women's rugby team and a web developer by trade.
What is your blogging philosophy?
I started out just trying to keep all the family members informed on all the kids comings and goings, but now as a MOT, I feel more responsibility to blog for other parents trying to juggle careers, hobbies, a sense of self, and kids.
I have been blogging since...

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
Hi Kara! I do the same thing...reading other MOM's blogs who have older twins so I can have hope that I will get through the stage I'm at! I remember the 18-24 mos stage being so difficult with Cole and Bella and I'm right in the midst of that right now again with Garrett and Landon! Your twins sound like they are doing so well!!
Hi Kara! I checked your blog the other day and saw that you have a lot on your plate these days! Landon is starting to get more molars so I'm in teething hell right along with you...our poor little ones!!
I read your comment on my blog about missing San Diego...it's so funny because I miss New England so much. We should just swap houses!!!
Isn't Tahoe beautiful?? We love it there! We haven't taken all 4 kids there yet (just Cole and Bella) but my husband would love to teach all of them how to ski at some point. Summertime is nice there too...sitting on the beach, dipping your feet in the cool water....awww, I so wanna be there right now!
We're taking Cole and Bella to Disneyland next month but leaving the little twins at home. I think we'll hit Legoland too since we've never been. We took C & B to San Diego Zoo a couple years ago and they loved it! It's a huge hit with little kids...also Sea World is great too!
Michele's blog is great, isn't it? I love her sense of humor!!
I just posted this comment on my own page....it's been a really long day already (and it's only 12:00 pm)!
Walnut Creek? Are you kidding? My husband is from Walnut Creek. He went to DeLa Salle High!! Did you go to high school there? His parents still live there and they would love for us to move there but no way could we afford it! We're in Stockton, about 1 hour, 15 minutes from Walnut Creek.
Hi Kara, thanks for adding me to your blog list! I need to update mine with twin blogs...can I add yours?
I love San Diego!! It's a 9-hr drive for us but SO worth it! All my extended family lives in the Boston area...LOVE that area too! I'd move back there in a heartbeat if I could convince my husband but he's a CA boy at heart (plus he's a Mama's boy and Mama wouldn't approve of him moving so far away..haha!)
