Tips and Tricks I’ve learned along the way
How to Keep Your Sanity Raising Two Under TWO
Honest truth, in my twenties I thought people who had children back-to-back (read: those raising two under two) were crazy. Coming from a family where there are two of us, and a twelve year age gap between us, there was no way I was going to have two children so close in age. What’s the saying: Man plans, God laughs? Well, that was definitely the case with me. Little did I know, or realize, that not getting married until my 30’s would lead me to a place where I actually would want to be raising two under two.
Is it me or did this summer go by WAY TOO FAST? As a matter of fact this entire year has seemed to go by at the speed of light! How is it October already??? At the end of August Baby A started Preschool! My lovely, sweet little girl has had a taste of what it is REALLY like to be a big girl and I think she’s enjoying it! I knew as soon as she started school, however, something was going to have to change – my “fly by the seat of our pants and do as we please” mentality would clearly need to go out the window.

The Best (and Easiest) Way to Clean Stains from Baby Clothes
You know it, I know, it, we’ve all been there. You have this sweet little baby and that baby makes major messes…especially in the beginning! For me, both of my kids loved to have diaper blowouts. Oooh, I can remember all too well being in the middle of Joann Fabrics when I heard Baby A make a heck of a noise and I had to hightail it out of the store. She was probably about a month or so old and it took me about 3 minutes to get to the car. I just knew what I was in for. I got to the car, took her out of the car seat and boom it was all the way up her back! YIKES! Those were the early days when she wore a lot of onesies and I’d be darned if I lost one.
