What do you do when consequences become a game between your triplet toddlers?
Playing together, I hear Eleanor tell Callista, “You’re in Time Out. Go sit on the rug. Deep breath. One, two, three, *inhale, exhale*.”
During a meal, I hear Toby tell Eleanor, “I’m setting the timer. I take your food.” (I’ve had to [...]
Because there was much hemming and hawing on my part about reading “Gone Girl,” from the crazy loved it/hated it hype to my wariness at a possible infertility story that rubbed me the wrong way, here’s my review from Goodreads:
It’s so easy to get in a reading rut. It’s even easier to not realize you’re in one. The key to reading more and often is choosing good books.
“OBVIOUSLY, JENNY,” you say.
“OBVIOUSLY, READER,” I counter.
But how do you choose good books? I don’t know how you do it, but here’s my convoluted [...]
Callista threw a fit on the floor when I wouldn’t let her take spoons from the kitchen. While I’d normally let a tantrum play out until it dissipates or escalates, Eleanor decided her sister deserved a time out, and Callista obliged.
Me? I watched, laughed and recorded it. I mean, what else would I have [...]
There’s a sweet spot between focusing too much on what could have happened and being drop-to-your-knees thankful that it didn’t, or so They want you to believe.
“Be grateful for what you have.” “Just focus on the positive.” “Don’t think about what could have happened.”
It’s impossible to appreciate a near miss without acknowledging what [...]

We tried something new during last night's 2/3/4 am #triplets party. Hushing them & telling them to go to sleep from my spot in my own bed was much nicer than being 1. In their rocking chair or 2. Wearing the path between my room & theirs. Only problem: I
I'm so behind we'll be doing the next handprint set in a month. Oops! At least the prints were done. ✋✋✋
I needed this!
GNO/In! (Plus Bob)
They're on a mission: Operation Wake Toby!
Callista's eyes are camera-shy like mine. It's rare to see them so bright in a photo. Love!
My view while I stretch.
This doesn't suck!
I love how they love each other. (They each chose to sit together.) #triplets
Just finished THE NIGHT CIRCUS & now starting my first Neil Gaiman book - NEVERWHERE - for book No. 31 of 2013!
Booooooooooze. Today was HARD. I normally read to de-stress, but I can't even concentrate enough for that. I need to de-frazzle before I properly de-stress.
Stopped at the library for 2 holds that came in & walked out with +3. I wanted more, but with 18 books at home, I held back.
Half birthdays count, too! #triplets
I don't think they'll mind me running at the park a few times a week. #triplets
Happy, red face! The trails are MUCH friendlier to my apparent lingering shin splints. I would've gone longer, but this is my 1st time on these trails, & I had NO clue where I was going. Next time!
Has atone bought these @yogabbagabba undies for their littles? Curious about sizing. I have 3 tiny hineys that Carter's 2-3 undies struggle to stay up on.
Mama can find time out ANYWHERE.
I can't imagine having #triplets before digital photography.
First @crocs! Wonderful service at the new @concordmillsnc store. #triplets
