Cheat the Church

I was plagued with the guilt of decision making. Should I stay or should I go? My women’s bible study was having a social last night, a cookie swap for a time to get to know each other. I really wanted to go because I’m new to the group and wanted to hang out with … Continue reading

Top 5 Toys for One Year Olds

Two little girls are bumping on the floor. Both are quick and like to explore. Who will be one as swift as a fox? Who will be the first to climb in the box? Two baby girls are bumping, pushing, and striving to be the one who scrambles into the empty diaper box first. Baby … Continue reading

I’m a naturally scatterbrained, type A wanna-be woman on a quest to be a better woman. It’s hard to do anything more than mother 2 little one year olds.

Getting Things Done for Moms, Day 4

Oh the irony.  The week I’m writing about Getting Things Done for moms is the week I have 2 sick babies and can hardly get anything done. When my girls are sick, their separation anxiety is through the roof.  Most hours of the day I have at least one baby clinging to me. It’s nap … Continue reading

Getting Things Done for Moms, Day 3

I want to rule my stuff and not let my stuff rule me. I have 2 sick babies this week, and boy is it tough to manage my marriage, home, and family because my sweet girls take priority over all (except you Hubbie).
