Let's Cut to the Crust, Shall We?


Today I have broken my own rule. Today I have set aside my own beliefs to satisfy the beliefs of others. Today I have lost the battle with the crust.

I cut the crust.
I cut the crust off the grilled cheese.
And now there is no going back.

Long ago I decided to give L & M whatever we ate and since they were 1 they've eaten all kinds of foods most kids wont...wheat bread, tofu, chicken parm, grilled octopus (I kid you not!), AND....bread crust on sandwiches.

Until today.
I gave in. They are getting pickier these days - is that a 5 year old thing? And I'm tired of reminding them, "Yes you do so like peanut butter! Yes you eat the crust, you've eaten it for the last 4 years!"

Today I gave in because I'm tired of the fight, and I'm tired of food going to waste, and I'm tired of eating the leftover food so that it doesn't go to waste!

What's next...white bread???
Scary thought.

Where's MY Bike?

I'm out of breath.
I'm sweating.
I'm tired.

No, I'm not at the gym. I'm trying to keep up with my daughters who are getting really comfortable on their bikes.

I need to either buy myself a bike, rollerblades, or one of those scooters to keep up with them.
Or....I could take their training wheels off.

Now that would be scary.

Birthday Update: 45 Kids and We Have Strep?

This Birthday Bash is turning into an exercise in gratitude...

  • 45 Kids are coming? Great! I was thinking I'd get a few more no's, but really, what a compliment that just about everyone is making the effort to come.
  • They say it might rain Saturday???? Great! It will force me to clean out the garage completely and use my skills at decorating to make it festive.
  • L & M might have strep?!??!? Great! At least I'll get them on an antibiotic within the 48 hours they need to NOT be contagious.
Plus, I really wanted some quality time at home with the 2 of them before this weekend. God knows I didn't need to get anything done today and tomorrow!! :) :) :)

You should see what I look like right now...truly scary!

Kindergarten Orientation update

1. we were late
2. they are the ONLY twins this year
3. the three of us are readheads

Needless to say we stood out and I'm sure there's a little "X" next to their names already.
So now I guess I'll have to really amp up the volunteering come September.

But at least it's FREE :) :) :)!

It doesn't matter if you're on the right track...

....you'll still get run over if you don't keep moving.

That was always my favorite quote and to show you how much I liked it, I used it in my senior blurb for my high school yearbook. Thank God I didn't choose my number two, "Here she come now sayin mony mony...". How funny to think I probably spent days coming up with just the right stuff to mention in that blurb and now half of it means nothing to me.

So I have joined the blogging scene to keep moving forward, and to keep memories of my girls in a place that doesn't give me paper cuts and sticky fingers. This will also be a great place to direct their future prom dates to let them know I can embarrass them publicly so they'd better behave. I figure I have about 11 years to generate enough readers to make it a substantial threat.

In addition, I can stop sending lengthy emails to my family and friends detailing the latest adventures of L and M and my (often poor) attempts at guiding them through the maze of questions, friends, school, and sibling rivalry.

But for the 2 readers out there (you know who you are mom and DH) I promise lots of good, juicy stories (past and present) and drama. With 2 little girls there's always drama.

It can be scary to think of raising two girls in this crazy world. And sometimes their antics turn me into a
