Beware the ides of March

It’s been a long Winter — I’ve addressed that earlier. And since it’s the half-way point of the month of March (beware) we’ve seen a taste of spring!! And with that we’ve seen Theodore improve greatly! Well, minus the time change thing… he seems to be happier, a bit more relaxed, and glad he doesn’t … Continue reading

Daylight Savings Time is…

Yes, #DST hit the Triplet household hard. Two things: Oh Gretchen woke up SWINGING Sunday morning. Yes, she stayed up late (two nights in a row actually) and MAN was she having NOTHING Sunday morning. Picking fight, after fight. Thank goodness the weather was pleasant and she got outside… And, the DAY after… Theodore, my … Continue reading

Longest Winter Ever

Every year I think this will be the winter of Theo’s contentment. So far, it hasn’t worked. Yet.

Do you realize how much this sets all of us off?! 1. Since the girls move like lightning in the morning (not) … Continue reading

Extremes: We’ve Got It

Last week was a hectic week… (Wait, let that sink in. Every week is a hectic week.) Ok, really, in the Mylifeintriplicate household, last week was crazy. Not only did we have a change in schedules with the holidays, the time off from school, but add ridiculous molar pain to the list…and it was just … Continue reading

Back to School: Kindergarten 2012-13

Last time I posted was back in July. July 6 I believe… And now, we’re back to school. New teachers, new daycare, and new bus (for Theodore at least)… Short but sweet update: the first 2 full school days are under our collective belts and, hate to jinx things, but things went very well. Since … Continue reading
