Mac, this song is for you!

I sing this to Mac all the time. Each of our kids have their own special song. This one's for you, Buddy Boy!
Baby Mac
Baby Mac
Mommy loves you to the moon and back
Sweet little baby, sweet little guy
Mommy loves you up to the sky
Baby Mac
Baby Mac
Mommy loves you to the moon and back
(to the tune of twinkle little star)

PS: I love spaghetti. Love, Mac

Just Swingin' With My Dad

On Growing Up

I know they will, of course. And oftentimes I find myself thinking that I wish they would grow up because "Won't it be fun to do (insert fun traveling type adventure here) when the kids are much older?" When my house is filled with the chaotic activity that a 17 year old, 16 year old and 13 year old enjoy, I am pretty sure I will think, "Remember when they were 4, 3, and 10 months? What I wouldn't give to have that back..." The truth is, we are never completely happy with the stage we are in and I want to remedy that. Enjoy the headless Polly Pocket dolls that pretty much occupy every inch of space in our house. Don't spend all my time worrying about little Mac's teething woes. He will get over this. He'll have a healthy, non-painful mouthful of teeth one day. That is pretty much a guarantee.
"Remember Charlotte and Evelyn, how you used to love to hear stories about the imaginary Lucy Belle who jumped so high on her bed that she was propelled into the sky and spent her evenings exploring the earth?" The teenage Charlotte and Evelyn will roll their eyes. But I know they will be remembering her and smile. Maybe only on the inside.

This is Pure JOY

Things they are a-changing

This blog is cute and everything, but honestly? NOT INTERESTING. I don't know how, and I don't know when, but expect a blog revamp. Graphic design is not my forte, so the simple free template format will still exist. The content and title are the things I'm playing with. Don't worry, it will still involve photos of my darling little sweethearts and include stories of their incredible cuteness, but will also be more personal in nature. It has occured to me to start another, seperate blog, but I really would rather keep it all in the same place. This new blog will revolve around ME a little more. My posts might occasionally be about subjects not involving my children. I am pretty sure most of them will still be child-centered, but I want to explore other avenues as well.
I have so many ideas, can't wait to figure this all out.
