Potty Training: One Week Recap

Seems like the vast majority of my blog posts have to do with bodily eliminations. Kinda gross but that is my life right now, I guess. My brother (single) commented when he spent time with my sister and me (both married with kids) that all we talk about is poop. NO we don’t! we loudly … [Read more…]

The Poop Story

Hey everyone. Don’t tell Mommy, but we hijacked her computer while she is in the shower and decided to tell everybody what we did yesterday. Ok Benji, you go first. No, you go. No–you! a;rkjhaeljropaewjoirjawfnklfnaseklf; Ok, I guess we will have to do this together. We are twins, after all. The Poop Story by Micah … [Read more…]

(Another) 90 minute shirt

Here is another 90 minute shirt I made for the boys. I LOVE IT! I made it out of one of Aaron’s old t-shirt (yellow) and Poppie’s shirts (blue). It is too cute. And I managed to snap a picture of Benji wearing it too! Enjoy!


This is a total “mom” post. Potty language and humor ahead: Beware. After dinner is Micah’s “pooping time.” He usually starts making “the face” around the end of dinner. Tonight, he got really quiet and I said, “Potty?!” He said “POOP!” So off we went. His shirt was super sticky from the caramel that I … [Read more…]

She is a … [Read more…]

Swimsuit cover up

The “Big” Bib: Tutorial

Welcome to my first ever tutorial! (Please have patience and mercy as I have never done this before…) I have been meaning to make some new bibs for the boys for a while now. The little bibs I got for my baby showers just weren’t cutting it anymore. They are like highwater bibs–they come to … [Read more…]

Greek Goddess Dress

Are you ready? I made another dress to feed my growing addiction. Or fill my closet, either one. 🙂 I found a tutorial online that I wanted to try called “Most Flattering Shirt Dress.” And it was flattering–on the model who sewed it online. Super cute on her. On me? not so much. It looked … [Read more…]

Mail Organizer

Here is another project I made a week-ish ago. It is fun and practical–a mail organizer! I don’t know about you, but the mail PILES up on my kitchen counter tops….and stays there. UG! It is horrible and embarrassing. So, here is my attempt at a solution–and I got to MAKE something too. Win, win! … [Read more…]
