"Run Them Like Dogs"

I was very pregnant with my twin boys, when Dave, my neighbour at the time, offered some unsolicited yet very astute advice.



We had run into him unexpectedly at our local neighbourhood bakery on a cold January afternoon.When hearing that my babies-to-be would be identical twin boys, this wise man, a father of two boys himself, imparted the following advice in getting through the rearing of these children: "Feed them lots of meat and run them like dogs." … Continue

I am so tired that I washed my hands while drying my hair!

Ever have one of those weeks where you are so tired that you can't even see straight? I'm sure, as Mommies, you have all been there. Those nights when you are up all night with a sick child, or feeding a newborn, or if you are really blessed both. Yes, we have all been there. I am not asking for pity:)LOL I am merely sharing the very interesting, albeit scarey, scenario that I experienced a couple days ago in a hotel bathroom .

Latest Post : On Mothers

"....It is funny I can look at them both and see them just as they were in the hospital - cradled in my arms for the first time.
