My Week(97) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

I seriously don’t even REMEMBER the beginning of this week, it’s been so busy. Which is good, since I’m still solo-parenting these munchkins and the more I wear them out the easier bedtimes are. You will notice a distinct lack of couch naps in this week’s photos.


Those are my children, that is not our stroller.

Hockey Fans

Why don’t pirates eat peanut butter sandwiches? Because they can’t open the jAAAAAAARRRRRRGH!


Adorable tunnel vision

Too much cute on one swing

Obsessed with Chuck the Truck


She’s worried about falling behind now that Evan is in school, so she’s working on her math skills.


Cart safety experts!


Tiny gymnast

Practicing his balance beam skills in the real world

Gorgeous evening for a walk


Are you done Mom? School is way more exciting than you.

This Paleo thing makes grocery shopping interesting.

Modeling the latest knitting fashions during our yarn store playdate


Visiting her friends at the duck pond. “HAI DUCKS! KACK KACK!”

My view of Friday’s playdate. I guess my kids are over there somewhere.

I’m pretty much useless these days.

Skeptical of a guy holding a frog

I think it’s time to move the kitchen stool

And now it’s 8:15 on Saturday night, I’m in my jammies and eating cheese like it’s my job. We have ANOTHER full day tomorrow followed by a week of our new, busy lives and I sort of feel like I’m going to blink and it will be Christmas so I better start planning even MORE fall things to do but I’m pretty sure if I try I actually will keel over from exhaustion. True story: I fell asleep sitting up on the couch today and woke up to Evan shouting from the bathroom to come wipe his butt. Exciting days, y’all.

Hi, can’t talk, must get back to eating and drinking ALL THE THINGS.


Hockey day!

Subway = mom of the century

This is my "crazy person carrying home two giant bags of plants my neighbor gave me" face


She couldn't make up her mind on this hat - but the giant Dora face on the other side ended up making it a NO.

Christmas socks in May. Don't judge me.

We were outside. It started pouring. I made her come inside. This happened.


Evan said "Let's buy this flowers for Daddy!" It was adorable, but the flowers cost $9.99, so, no.




Gymnastics? Gymnastics!!

Anyone tells my kid not to wear the pink fairy wings and they get a face full of my FIST.

Evan built a fort, complete with "outer space rocket"


More push-ups Mommy! More push-ups!

Tiny daredevil demands to be pushed higher

Reading herself to sleep


Waiting for the train

Horsey does not look amused

Smores Face


Ready for fun in her new car seat

Adorable red-heads sharing a soft serve

Driving a fire truck was ALMOST the highlight of his night...

...until this happened. (He's the tiny, blurry speck 15 feet in the air)

One of my BFF’s (Wedding Erin, if that means anything to some of you) is visiting for the long weekend and we’re attempting to fit as much fun as possible into 4 days. So far we’ve been extremely successful.

My Week(80) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Despite the fact that it rained – a lot, or at least it felt like a lot – this week, we certainly made it out of the house every day. Which is why I just ate a giant ice cream sundae to celebrate surviving.


Tiny hockey player

I cleaned Caroline's room. It lasted 45 seconds, until Evan found the puzzles.

What, you don't plan your garden while watching Game of Thrones?


We borrowed this stroller from a friend and Caroline is in LOVE with it. If anyone knows where I can get one, please let me know.

Playdate lunch - mac'n'cheese and watermelon

WHOA, WHAT IS THIS?? (Answer: soft serve from Sea Swirl)


A rare moment of peace in a shared cart

He used his magic ginger powers on me. Kid is unstoppable.

Evening self portrait


Oh looks, it's raining! Wet!

I've put this damn floor puzzle together every day this week.

Sure. Whatever. Just get out of my house.



Form a line, please! I'm in the front!

Giant bubbles are fun


E wore his fancy clothes for a boat thing - I lay in bed.

Beautiful day for Stroller Strides

Caroline learned to say "quack quack". It's the cutest thing ever.


For Mother's Day, I bought myself flowers that will last a lot longer than a bouquet

Caroline was unimpressed by the dinosaur tracks.

It would have been cooler with a voiceover that said "WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH!!!"

Despite getting to sleep in Saturday, it was a REALLY long day so as soon as I finish typing this post I’m going to bed. I dragged my very patient husband off to meet my internet friend Kim – who was just as awesome in real life as she’s been online for the past 3 years. The boys had an amazing time running (away) together and Evan cried all the way home because he didn’t want to leave his fwiends. It was adorable. And also exhausting. Sunday is more hockey, more gardening and my first attempt at making artichokes for dinner. Happy Mother’s Day!

My Week(77) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

This was a looooong week for me – E was gone, the ornamental pear trees bloomed (they seem to be the only plant I am allergic to, but I am REALLY allergic), Caroline is teething, and I went back to counting points for Weight Watchers so I was tired, snotty, crabby and very very hungry. Luckily, the weather was nice and being outside wears out the kids so I could crash right after they went to bed. On lousy week scale of 1 to Jump Out A Window, it was really only a 5 or 6, so I should stop complaining.


Who's ready for hockey?


Softball? I approve of softball.

Making sure I didn't waste ANY FOOD.


Not the worst way to wake up

Her LIFE is OVER because a) I am out of grapes b) I am out of granola bars c) I am out of fruit snacks d) ALL OF THE ABOVE OMG CALL CPS.

Getting my Vitamin D


Ready for Stroller Strides

Her eyes haunt my dreams

Baby has excellent (if inappropriate) taste in almost true autobiographies


Morning trains

That blur is Evan doing warm-up at gymnastics to The Water Buffalo Song

He thinks the lobsters at the grocery store = the aquarium

Organized pantry. I found 7 cans of diced tomatoes and 6 of chickpeas. Time for....tomato hummus?


Adorable baby in an amazing hat

Ignoring my kids, pretending I'm doing sit ups, really taking photos of myself #mommyblogger

My extremely loud singing did not prevent a car nap after 2 hours of hard playground playing

Weirdo and gross, but still cute. To me. Obviously I'm her mom.


Oh no! Someone made a huge mess! Oh wait, it was me.

He's stealing my hummus and ignoring his PB&J. I like him.



Skeptical child wonders why I can take pictures but not put on real clothes instead of a bathrobe

Sunbeam floor nap

Patio time is a good end to even a tough week

This week should be shorter – and hopefully less snotty – and my friends and I just picked a weekend for Kiawah Island 2012 which means I can start COUNTING THE DAYS. It also means I can’t cure my allergies with a giant bowl of ice cream because I used on my extra points on more important things. Like rum to wash down my allergy pills.

Weekend Photo Attack

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Driving home on Sunday, E and I were talking about what we would do if we won the $130 million Powerball, and I said “You know, I think I’d stay here in our house.” Of course, I’d ALSO buy a fabulous beach mansion so I could skip November-March in New England. But April in Connecticut kind of rocks.

Apologies for the ridiculous number of pictures.

Mystic Seaport:

She INSISTED on wearing this hat all day

An extremely true-to-life family photo

E’s hockey game:

This just cracks me up

Playing on the patio:

Practicing her balance beam skills

I have no idea what she's doing. Weirdo.

Evan learned how to skate:

He did so well for his first time!

It’s supposed to be 85 degrees today, so we’re going to a playdate, taking a nice long nap and then playing in the sprinklers until it’s time to make burgers on the grill. That’ll do, Connecticut, that’ll do.
