Apple-Carrot Muffins

Apple-Carrot Muffins

These muffins are healthy and delicious! They’re baby-approved, little kid-approved, and I kinda love them myself. This is a great recipe for baby led weaning, finger foods, breakfast, toddler snacks, or after-school snacks. And bonus, they thaw nicely if you want to freeze some. I make a big batch of them and store them in […]

Lesson 95: You don’t always have to intervene

Lesson 95: You don’t always have to intervene

S tends to be the muscle of the twins. He weighs more, he’s further along in physical development, and he’s faster. He’s also not afraid to go after what he wants. B is pretty easy going, so it tends to set the stage for S to take whatever he wants, while B just moves on […]

Veggie Quiche Cakes…and Protecting Yourself from the CIA in Your Microwave

Veggie Quiche Cakes…and Protecting Yourself from the CIA in Your Microwave

I originally found this recipe over at BabyJake’sMom. I’m sure it’s just fine the way she has it, but I like to play with recipes as I make them because it’s fun! Here’s my edited version of her Veggie Quiche Cakes. These are great for baby led weaning, toddler finger foods, or an easy breakfast […]

Feed your family on the cheap!

I just found a way to buy 8 entrees, 2 salads, 2 soups, and 8 bread sticks from Olive Garden for $43.69. Since they’re so over-sized, I can feed my family with 2 of the entrees. I’ll be freezing 6 entrees, making a total of 4 dinners for my family of 5. In fairness, two […]

Baby-approved Smoothies

Baby-approved Smoothies

I sent this picture to my mom the other day and she commented that he was losing that baby look and starting to look like a little boy. Problem is, he’s 10 months old. He is a baby, and he’s underweight. I responded to her text with, “That’s called malnutrition.” Of course, he’s not really […]

Lesson 94: Start ’em young

Lesson 94: Start ’em young

Last night I posted this picture on Facebook: I commented that after dinner J got up, went into the kitchen, and started washing the dishes. We didn’t ask him to do it, he just did it. And while he was washing, he told us that this was now his job. He said, “I’m going to […]

Chocolate Apple Sweet Potato Muffins

Chocolate Apple Sweet Potato Muffins

I spent today making foods and freezing them for the babies. It’s a bit of work, but it’s really one of my favorite things to do. I’m not artsy or crafty; I can’t draw, I can’t paint, and any craft I attempt is a big Pinterest Fail. But playing with ingredients and mixing up recipes […]

Make Your Own Magic Diaper Rash Cream!

Make Your Own Magic Diaper Rash Cream!

We mostly cloth diaper, but from time to time we use disposable diapers. For one, they’re much easier when we’re out and about. Two, I’m lazy and it’s easier. Three, you can’t use most diaper rash creams with cloth diapers. Thankfully, we don’t actually get many rashes while using cloth diapers, but they do happen […]

IVF, Personhood, and a Story of Infertility

IVF, Personhood, and a Story of Infertility

I don’t have an exciting infertility story. You probably didn’t even know we struggled with infertility. Although since we have twins, you’ve wondered. Some of you have even asked me in your own polite way. Were you surprised? Do twins run in your family? Did you know you were having twins? I do have a […]
