Synchronized Screaming, Pooping and other Miscellany

The beauty of having more than one child is the symphonic melding of sounds that often culminates in a concert of sorts. I am talking about the daily aural landscape that is part and parcel of being a parent of more than one, specifically being the parent of twins. When you refine this scenario, clarifying that the twins in question are toddlers boys, and the fact that they have a seven-year-old sister, it becomes… Continue

Things Never Are Dull With Toddlers are they?

So as my son turns two this week, he decided to let mommy know what is ahead of me in the world of toddlerdum and well maybe "boydum" yep, that's a new word, going in my dictionary.  You never hear of little girls putting rocks in their ears or shoving things up their nose right? That just doesn't happen with girls I don't think...…

Prepping for My Son's Second Birthday Party!

Today I will be running around getting ready for J Myster's Second Birthday Party. It turns out that we may actually have around 15 people in our house, and I'm freaking out that I may not have enough seating...



I did not make J's cake. I'm not much of a baker, I'm more of a cook. But its Toy Story Themed and If I could have made it Thomas The Train Themed I would have, this Kid requests to watch "Thomas" all the time since we got him a Thomas the train set for Christmas. Maybe next… Continue

"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

Perchance to Dream

Perchance? Fat chance. Sleep is not happening in my household.





The fantasy of a good night's sleep is a distant memory as I consider keeping my eyelids open with toothpicks. Yea, it's that bad.





On a recent work night, I had the honour of being woken up at 1:24am, 3:27am, 4:17am and 5:20am respectively. The last occurrence was the one where I threw in the proverbial towel, made myself a huge pot of coffee and jumped in a steaming shower with hopes that … Continue

Child Modeling. Should you do it?

Last night, my husband and I caught about three minutes of the show "Toddlers and Tiaras."  There was a pretty little girl in a lot of make up, smiling and standing before a crowd, her mother proudly looking on with tears in her eyes.



"When I'm in my make up," the little girl said, "I feel pretty."



And she looked pretty.  I certainly wasn't scandalized.  It looked like any other mother / daughter activity to me.



The next shot was a teaser for the next segment, in…

Right On, Kermie!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWE3uF9u9-g

As a former television news producer, this clip of Kermit the Frog, reporter, never fails to crack me up. In it, he is at the scene of breaking news - an ongoing, live accident scene. Humpty Dumpty has fallen off the wall.



The kids love it because it's a nursery rhyme they know mixed in with with intense imagery, so that they are both familar with…

My Son and His Big Boy Bed

So about 2 weeks ago, my son and his short little legs, finally made it up and over his crib railing. I was dreading the day this would happen because lets see my son is ornery just like me and he doesn't give up until he accomplishes something. Which sometimes includes many hours of frustrating screaming when he can't get his socks on. Well he is pro at putting most of his clothes on now and of course pro at getting out of his crib...(Read More)

First Hair Cut!

The hubs and I have discussed argued over getting J's hair cut for awhile now. See my son was pretty much bald until about 9 months. Then he started getting this fine blond hair, but it was so fine it was more like fuzz and only curled when it was wet. He would wake up most mornings looking like… Continue

Social Media and Moms - An Introduction

Social media has revolutionized what it means to be a mother.  Sure, the basics of mothering remain the same throughout the ages, but with all the information of the internet at our fingertips, new theories catch steam quickly, unsafe practices are brought to light in front of large audiences, and people can pick and choose which parenting methods work best for them in real time, as these methods are being used and tested by others.



One of the largest drawbacks to staying at home…

Toddler Tricks - 25 - Potty Training Edition

Ways to Trick your Baby:



Problem:  Congratulations!  Your child is pooping in the potty!  What could possibly be the problem there?  Well, I don't know about you, but after years of wiping the stuff, cleaning the stuff, and otherwise handling it, I find nothing more gross than carrying it from the chamber pot to the actual toilet to flush.  And, sometimes, it sticks.  It sticks.  It's something that just turns my stomach, and I don't know why, but I hate it.



Solution:  This…

Toddler Tricks - 21

Ways to Trick your Baby:



Problem:  Your kid, to put it mildly, wakes up on the wrong side of the bed.  It seems no matter what you do, you are going to be graced with a crying jag leftover from sleep.  Nothing appeases, nothing stops it.  She's just cranky when she wakes up.



Solution:  Try to get there right before she wakes up.  This has worked for me about 50 percent of the time.  It's hard to pull off because sometimes the babies will sleep for an hour, other times…

As Twins Grow Up

My girls are identical twins.  I have kept them on the same schedule since birth.  They sleep at the same time, eat at the same time, watch TV at the same time, play at the same time.  Everything is the same.  They even play on the same playground toys at the same time.  It's just easier for me that way.  Plus, they don't seem to mind.  Little did I know I was instigating a mindset that is unknown to most children and that my twins will have to overcome as they grow up.…
