So, I’ve slowly eased back into the blogosphere after my 2-week moving hiatus. In case you missed anything the past few weeks . . .
My Blog Posts
Ok, well, the majority of posts over the past few weeks have actually not been my own. While I was getting my move on, I had some awesome guest bloggers taking over my site:
- From Amy at Funny is Family: How My Daughter Changed My Body Image
- From RJ at Lessons and Love: The Ever-Growing Enrollment of the Bad Parenting Club
- From Sam at RealMomofNJ: Hack Crafts for Ghetto Crafters
- From Pete at Dadmissions: The Bat Mitzvanera
- From Vicky at The Pursuit of Normal: My Kids Are a Couple of Talkblockers!
- From PP at The Precious Princess’s guide to Bananaland: Dating Rules for Single Moms Who Are 40 and Older
When I finally returned to writing for this week’s Too Tired to Try Tuesday post, I shared a post I wrote for Kids Crafts Fun and Games.com the day before. In this post I chronicled how the kids and I made handprint fireworks t-shirts. It was pretty fun, but extremely messy, so be warned if you’re interested in trying it out.
On Wednesday I dropped a little knowledge on you that I acquired from my move in Some Things I Learned During Our Move from CT to VA. Like the fact that there is an actual place in Pennsylvania called Shartlesville. For serious.
And I was clearly still suffering from moving brain at the end of last week because I totally forgot to ask you wonderful people for submissions for Friday’s Shiny, Happy, Sparkly, Feel-Good Friday post. Don’t fret, I filled it with pictures of my cuties, and I’ll be sure to remember to put out the call for next week. Unless I forget. And then, please, someone remind me.
My Favorite Kid
This week my favorites said:
- Monday: “I weally wike our new house,” said my favorite today.
- Tuesday: “I don’t want to leave, I loooooove the library,” whined my favorite today. (It was really hard to stand my ground on this one.)
- Wednesday: “When is it bedtime?” asked my favorite today.
- Thursday: “How come our new house makes me sleep longer?” asked my favorite today? (Because it has magical powers. And apparently we can never move again.)
- Friday: “I didn’t know poop came in that color!” shrieked my favorite today. (No fears, it was the baby’s.)
- Saturday: “Just call me ‘boss,'” said my favorite today.
My Top 5 Facebook Posts
This pic was by far the most popular post this week!
Which is worse…that I laughed when he was running for his life from the sprinkler or that I took a picture? And keep laughing?
Then there were these . . .
There you have it. Just another few weeks with the wild things.

It sounds like you may have moved into The Napping House, the way everyone is snoozing like crazy. Lucky!

The big kids have adjusted better than I imagined . . . the baby is coming around slowly. He’s finally back to sleeping through the night, now we just need to work on his naps.
