Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.

The good, the bad and the mundane

Lately it feels like life has gotten terribly repetitive. Get up... get one baby changed and in high chair... repeat. Feed baby... repeat. Get dressed. Get baby dressed... repeat. Do PT... Change poopy diaper... repeat... try to work for five minutes before someone bites someone, bumps head, hurts dog or some other ailment ir incident.

It seems that the biggest breaks in our schedule are pain in the butt things like trips to the hospital, blood work, stool samples and the occasional fun activity. I know that I should not complain. I get to work at home. I get to stay at home with my kids. I have a spouse who loves me. We are all reasonably healthy. So, for all of those things I am infinitely grateful. I just wish I could figure out some ways to spice up life a little.

I know you're super busy so anything out of the ordinary is difficult b/c it adds more work to the day...BUT...when I was home with Ava for a little while I felt the same way and I found art projects to be really fun. When they're that age it takes a while so it consumes a good part of your day (clean up mostly) but I felt like we did something different that day which is a good feeling. And, we had something to show for it. Even if it's just letting them color on a HUGE piece of paper on the floor or finger painting. I'd also strip her down to her diaper and let her splash her hands in a big bowl of water.

Mind you, I only had 1 child...I don't know if I'd be as willing to tackle finger painting with 2 ;-)

I find it keeps things interesting when we make time to get out of the house for fun things. Story time at the local library was a super big hit this week. Play areas, walks, any classes that you can take...whatever you can do to change it up a bit, I think is good for all of you :)

As for the finger painting idea...I have done similar with puddings and edible things instead of actual paints and we did it on the floor. Next time I think we will do it in our high chairs. :)

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
