My Week(106) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

Life continues to be good in our house, unless you are almost 2 year old, in which case you life is TERRIBLE.


The laptop doctor is in.

Sorry Mommy, you’re not as interesting as your iPad.



Lemon poppy seed muffins. They’re the paleo version, so don’t be jealous.

Making rainbows at the post office.

This game is called “Help I’m trapped in the door!” and we play every time we come home.


New favorite thing. It was broken by dinner time.

He voted. But he wasn’t happy about it.

Past my bedtime, but I had to see how it ended.


“Naptime Mommy! Night night”. (No, actually, we’re at gymnastics.)

Eggplant and fennel salad. I wish it was a cheeseburger.

Life is SO HARD when you are almost two.


Stroller Strides is an adventure with this child.

I started painting the dining room. It’s not going quickly.

I don’t know what they were playing, but they were having a great time.


I want to throat-punch whoever put the candy machines RIGHT next to the toddler play area.

Elevator rides are an effective bribery tool.

Respect the delicious smells of Christmas.


Lazy pants destroyed her room and then slept in.

Helpful little car pusher.

My perfect lunch: a Greek salad and a Diet Coke with NO OTHER PEOPLE. Plus also shopping.

I’m not actually here because, oh, have I mentioned? I’m going on a cruise. The Ruby Princess to Princess Cay, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and Grand Turk with two days at sea for nothing but drinking relaxing. My folks are here in Connecticut watching the kids, the pets and the house so don’t bother trying to rob us. And my brother is at THEIR house, so no robbing in Virginia either. You can go ahead and rob my brother though, since a) he’s like 22, he owns nothing of value and b) I don’t actually know where he lives. True story. I’m not a very good sister.


Waiting at the spa for my very, uh, personal appointment

Totally engrossed in a super hero movie

Someone REALLY liked the (plain, greek) yogurt


We left the house early so I could get a giant coffee - which means the kids get a bagel for breakfast

Eating the grapes while I'm trying to check out. She's OBSESSED.

I'm hoping a picture taped to the window will stop Mr. Cardinal from trying to bash his little birdy brains out all day.


Brutus: I didn't do it!

Blushes: Your photo taking it disturbing my nap

This kid sleeps through ANYTHING when he's couch napping


Foot war!!!

YEP. I ate them all.

Evil baby is evil


Yoda baby is the cutest

Are we gonna shake some crap or what?

Look, Ma, warm weather! What is that giant blue thing over my head?!


A week ago she hated those things. Now she's a bag-a-day addict.

Emergency pre-vacation pedicure

There's a little Caroline on the menu tonight (BA-DUM-CHING)

Even though I’m cruuuuuuising, dahling, I scheduled a few posts to go up this week so you wouldn’t miss me. Or more accurately, so my mom won’t go into blog-withdrawal and get so bored she accidentally scrubs all the grout out of my kitchen tiles. My parents don’t really know what “sitting still” means (which is good, with two toddler to watch). I, on the other hand, plan to have moss growing on my north side by Wednesday. Happy Weekend!

My Week(64) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Apparently the only things I took pictures of this week were my kids, so I hope you enjoy those.


Oh hi Mom, Let me just take that for you

I watched the Golden Globes with Twitter, which made it much more fun

I'm a cat lady at heart


Caroline's new favorite part of Stroller Strides is pretending to ride the carousel

Dirty face. Happy kid.

First snow since Halloween.

Things Caroline likes: Baths. And everything.


Caroline kidnapped this doll, perhaps because she thought it was her twin sister

We've upgraded from Nemo. I'm very happy.

Caroline's been wearing a lot of leggings. I think she likes it.


This time she stole a wallet. I'm afraid I have a tiny klepto on my hands.

Stylin' in Mommy's sparkle aviators

I own a lot of ridiculous sunglasses


Running stairs at Stroller Strides is not my favorite

Not my idea of a fun game but Caroline loved it

You know your friends read your blog when they see the kids stacking blocks and go "Look! Block stacking! TAKE THAT BABYCENTER!"


Cart safety fail. Again.

My beautiful, well organized craft area is now...not so much.

Toddlers are gross, man.


If you've seen Toy Story 3, you know this is near the END. At 6 am. Guess what time we got up.

What do you mean it's too early Mom?

Must be beautiful this time of year...all that snow. (FINALLY)

Happy Snow Day! I need to knit myself a new hat.

Our plans for today were rescheduled due to the storm, which means we get a day at home. I’d like to say it’s all hot cocoa and fireplace cuddles but a) my kid HATES hot cocoa, b) E spent most of the morning fixing the world’s most disgusting kitchen sink clog and c) there’s no couch in the fireplace room so we never use it. I have Really Big Plans to rearrange our entire first floor in the next few weeks and I’m looking forward to a day when we CAN have a fire and a movie at the same time. But first I need a baby gate for the bottom of our stairs – there’s a wall on one side but a bannister with spokes and a twirly thing at the bottom. (Terrible description, if you care you can look at my home tour.)(WOW, my house was clean. It doesn’t look like that AT ALL anymore.) Any suggestions?

My Week(63) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Times I went to Stroller Strides: FIVE.
Times I chased 2 toddlers around the Aquarium: THREE.
Number of cupcakes I ate: ZERO
Number of pounds lost: ALSO ZERO. In fact, I was up .8 pounds.

I’m only a little depressed now but on Thursday night I was REALLY depressed. I’m pretty sure it was due to the gourmet grilled chicken, sauteed apple and sharp cheddar grilled cheese sandwich I had for lunch (worth it) and next week I’ll see a loss. If I can make it through tonight’s playoff game without stress eating my weight in ice cream. Go Pats!


We found Nemo!

Find a happy place find a happy place FIND A HAPPY PLACE

SNL and blogging during nap time

Someone is a little TOO interested in Daddy's beer.


Teddy bear picnic after Stroller Strides

Despite how this looks, it was in fact happy playing

I remember this stage. Dislike.


One day they will drive REAL CARS and I will die dead of anxiety

I stole this quesadilla maker from a charity yard sale. (It's not really as bad as that makes it sound.)

New favorite: How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?


4:30 am toddler wake-up (WHY?????) means more Finding Nemo

This one is titled "Self Portrait - OH LOOK A FRONT FACING CAMERA!!!!!"

There was more than one lobster present at the birth of Christ? (No, but apparently there was a walrus)

The amount of resentment I feel towards my cat for her easy life is kind of ridiculous

At least I know she won't starve to death while I'm gone


I put a dollar in the mall carousel and blew Caroline's MIND

We feel the same way about cheese



Evan woke up at 4:30 am AGAIN. Aparently he had urgent car-organizing to do.

They have a serious love-hate relationship. It's driving me and B's mom NUTS.

I also remember this stage. At least it's funny.

New toddler app called "Word Wagon" is fun, not at all obnoxious AND educational.


More aquarium, Jelly Man.

Evan has been looking at this toy at Target for MONTHS - today he bought it with his Christmas money, because it was on clearance, down to $18 from $60.

Caroline in a nutshell: sob sob sob sob OH LOOK A CAMERA SMILEEEEE sob sob sob

Right now the kitchen is clean, the laundry is going and I get to stay up as late as I want knowing tomorrow is my day to sleep in. It’s shaping up to be a pretty good weekend – after a REALLY long week – and I’m enjoying the crap out of it. I hope you’re having a good one too!

My Week (51) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

Despite the fact that this WASN’T a typical week (hellooooooo single parenting) it was about as typical as any of our weeks are. Stroller Strides, playground, errands, cooking, lots of sleeping babies. But we survived and had fun and no one’s eyes rotted out because of too much Nick Jr. or starved to death because all they ate was Goldfish crackers.


Yes, Hello, We will buy ALL the pumpkins.

The portabello mushrooms were really just a goat-cheese-face-delivery device.

Late night toddler party


I ruined a beautiful morning by exercising.

Playdough playgroup

It is a universal truth that water from a faucet tastes better than water from a cup.


Does this LOOK like the face of someone being naughty?

I refuse to let him even try the big kid swings. He's not allowed to not need me!

Bebeh toes



So close, yet so far away. Victims of a cruel mother.

Dreaming of a quiet bath of his own


No YOU were just dancing to the Olivia theme song

She loves this book.

Riding dirty (on the side of the shopping cart).


Too busy playing dollhouse to get dressed.

I like this.

Fine, if you won't let me eat those Oreos you snuck into your cart I'll eat my shoe.


My husband brought me a nice healthy salad for lunch...

...and then I went shopping for CARBS AND MEAT. Caaaaaarbs.

Caroline says "Gimme the boobs or I'll pop a cap in you, Mama".

The coming week is going to be ALL CRAFTING ALL KNITTING ALL BAKING ALL HALLOWEEN ALL CLEANING ALL THE TIME. It’s E’s last week before he starts design school (spoken lots of time out of town in a hotel) and I have a Halloween party that miiiiight have gotten a little out of hand to prepare for. It’s going to be super fun (and super bad for my diet) and if you’re reading this you should definitely come too. I’m forcing my whole family to wear Halloween costumes. Come back on October 31st for some EPIC pictures.

p.s. I’m also probably maybe sort of thinking about upgrading my iPhone so these weekly roundups aren’t such a blurry mess. I think that would be a good way to end my FULL YEAR of iPhone photos.
