Crockpot Mexican Chicken

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/28/crockpot-mexican-chicken/

I put together this crockpot on a cold, snowy day.  I knew by lunch-time that the last thing I wanted to do was stand in the kitchen cooking dinner come 5pm so this was perfect!  I put all of the ingredients in the crockpot, stirred and turned it on high for 4 hours.

Though I couldn’t taste anything (thank…

I put this crock-pot together on Sunday when the boys were recovering from the flu.  Yes, I already know what you’re thinking… Mexican food?  With the flu?  Crazy, right?  Well, they pretty much spent Friday and Saturday on the couch, eating nothing but toast with jelly,…

Our Life with Boys... through my iPhone

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/09/life-through-my-iphone/

There has never been a dull moment in raising our 2 boys.  Never.  Each day, each week, each month, each year has been such an awesome adventure and has opened my eyes to a whole new world.  My way of thinking  has changed, the way I view the world around me is different, our way of playing, how we talk… It’s always been…

Learn Why Books Are Important for Your Baby’s Development?

Babies begin to hear your voice around 16 after they are conceived.  So they begin learning how to listen while inside of the womb.  As, your babies hearing develops they will begin hearing other sounds besides their mommy’s voice and can even recognize those sounds once he or she is born.  A baby is similar to a sponge and takes in everything that he or she hears or sees, even before they are born.  If you don’t want your child to exposed to certain language or behaviors, you should…

What an Adventure...

Let me just start by saying, whoever thought that taking a road trip when your 8 months pregnant… wait, no.  I should really start by saying how sweet it was that my hubby took the time to plan a little family getaway after the holidays.  In all honesty, it was an awesome idea; one I would normally love if I weren’t 8 months pregnant with a God awful back problem.  I knew this would be quite an adventure as it was, taking 2 toddlers and a psycho dog to the mountains.  Now…

Holiday Drama

I can only imagine that every member of my family just read the title and clicked on it so fast thinking I was writing a post about them!  Slow your hearts down…  I’m writing to all the mamas and friends who have written me over the course of this month.  I’m at a stand-still right now with nothing to do.  That’s right… NOTHING.  It feels odd and I’m a little out of place.  I have nothing to bake or cook, nothing to wrap, nothing to clean and only 1 basket of laundry to fold.  SO I guess, as…

Life, Links and a Recipe

Coffee?  Tea?  Let’s chat!  I’m here and still alive but this is the time of year I usually feel like I fall off the face of the earth.  I feel like I’ve been so focused and wrapped up in my own little family of 4 (soon to be 5) and realize that I’ve not given much attention to those around me!  Is that normal?  Is it just what happens at certain stages of motherhood?  I’m definitely in that stage.  Sometimes I get overwhelmed when I try to keep up.  Sometimes scrolling through…

The Following Days Continued

I leave the room and sit in the lobby for them to finish my paperwork. While I’m waiting, I send Jason a text saying, “I just wanted to let you know that I’m at Planned Parenthood. They confirm that I am pregnant and due in November.”

He sends a text back saying, “I don’t even know what to say to you.”

Stunned by this reply, I’m at a loss for how to respond. How does he not know what to say to me? Last I knew, it takes two for this result to happen.

He sends a follow-up…

Welcome to our Toy-Room

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/11/16/welcome-to-our-toy-room/

One of the joys of, well, all of my pregnancies is that I organize and re-organize everything.  Tell me you’re the same way, yes?  During my last ‘nesting session’, I hit the toy room, purged lots of toys and re-organized everything.  My head was spinning with options as to what to do with all of their toys and…

A Letter to my Son on his Birthday

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2012/11/13/a-letter-to-my-son-on-his-birthday/

3 years ago today, our Roman was born.  I woke early and felt great but I was nervous about what was to come.  I can remember thinking about how crazy it was that I felt so good and in just a few short hours, I would be in a lot of pain.  Repeat C-Section.  I bent over and touched my toes, twisted…

Weekend Highlights: Trick-or-Treat & Snow

Hey friends,

How are you?  No really.  How are you?  Do you ever get into the fake “How are you’s” too?  Seems like these days, Brian and I get so busy and our ‘how are you’s’ come out so fake and quick and fast and then we really aren’t listening to what the other is saying.  Like when he came home from work one night last week and I was getting dinner on the table.  I said,

“Hey babe, how are you?” – getting dinner on all 4 plates…
