Week 45 Around Here {2019} – Parenting Twins Article

Enjoying… a day to ourselves on Saturday when Josh took Logan to the land with him (Wyatt & Jack had slept over at Grandma’s Friday night, so they were already there) by taking a walk in the sunshine and watching Pride & Prejudice while Carly played puppies.  I had a migraine to start the day off, so relaxing with her and watching a movie was nice while my medicine kicked in, and then our walk in the brisk fall sunshine…

Celebrating… one year seizure free for Logan.  It’s completely surreal to me that he hasn’t had a seizure in twelve months after how many he had in 2018.  I remember thinking this day would never come.  I couldn’t imagine him going a month without a seizure, let alone an entire year.  It took five medications to find the one that has worked for him long term, and the one he is on now took a leap of faith to put…

Flashback Photo: Can we even believe how identical the twins look here?I thought Logan was Jack until I looked at Jack.  Just wow. Loving… the fall leaves on all the trees lately.  Carly and I stood quietly for a few moments at the twins school on Wednesday just staring as the wind shook leaves from the trees and they fluttered quietly to the ground.  It felt like magic. Along with the fall, of course, comes some preparation for the colder…

{Rock Paper Scissors at the vet with Jack} Painting… two of our three bathrooms on Saturday while Josh had the kids at the land with his parents and brother.  I started with the downstairs bathroom which had been a color called pumpkin marshmallow.  I painted it a soothing green-ish color called Breezeway by Behr, and I love the result.  When we paint the trim, it’s going to look really sharp in there. Then I moved on to our master bedroom,…

“Mornings” by Carly Reading… Searching for Sylvie Lee on audio and finishing Maybe You Should Talk to Someone.  Searching for Sylvie Lee had me listening every minute I got the chance. It was really good.  Maybe You Should Talk to Someone was good (I loved all the psychology advice and the therapist’s perspective #totaltherapynerd) but it wasn’t a page turner like I thought it would be.  Just a 3 star book for me.Shopping… for new furniture on Saturday while our…

{pc: Aunt Roxanne} Having… my sister over along with her kids on Saturday.  It was a really fun day, and I was so glad to spend the day with her.  She even curled Carly’s hair while she was here with my new wand from Ulta, and Carly looked so darn cute! I enjoyed loving on my niece Romy & seeing all the kids snuggled up on the couch together watching a movie during movie night.  They’re just so sweet together.Trading……

{That time Carly “helped” carry the watermelon} Enjoying… movie night with the kids last weekend, with homemade pizza & cookies. Yum!!!

The sweetheart.I got to spend…
