Daycare provides my boys with fun activities and stimulation while I’m working. And most days when I feel guilty about leaving them and walking out of the door to a desk where I can sit and drink a hot cup of coffee, it usually takes a quick look at my daycare’s blog post with a […]
Disclaimer: This post is a NOT a sponsored post, nor did the Green Bean Casserole Council of America request that I write this post. I just have too much time on my hands. Let’s start with the basics here…if you don’t know, green bean casserole is a mushy mushnick of a dish that is served […]
A couple of weeks ago we gave away another mommy makeover (one of our favorite things to do)! Our winner, Renee, catches up with us today to share the details of how her day of pampering went. This is Renee: My name is Renee. I am 27 years old and am a full time working […]
As we embarked on our first real family vacation last week, it never occurred to me that it would be any different than other vacations my husband, Mark, and I have taken together. Sure, I’d have to keep tabs on Ellie, my almost-3-year-old, make sure she was content, throw some food her way, have milk […]

Motherhood can be all-consuming. For many of us it starts with pregnancy when the growth of your little one dictates what foods you should or shouldn’t eat, how often you pee, and how much you need to sleep. Upon birth, your schedule is based on your infant’s needs: when to be fed, changed, and soothed. […]
I am not the most athletic person. I do agree that my past posts on this blog would dispute this, and you may be muttering words like hypocrite and liar. But let me explain. I participated in sports in junior high and then turned into a drama geek in high school. I walked everywhere in […]

I have five children. The oldest four are girls. And we just adopted a little fur-baby (puppy), yesterday, he’s a boy too. Is a large family really so odd? After all, “Large families have consistently been common,” Martin points out. “Two is the norm, but for every 34 mothers who stop at two, there are […]
Do you have an Elf on the Shelf? We do. Her name is Jingle. I was super excited to start this tradition when I heard stories of a co-worker’s mischievous elf two years ago. Elf painting red noses on the children’s faces. Elf blocking the kids’ doors with streamers. Elf kissing Barbie under the mistletoe. […]
You are not breathing. You can’t breathe. That is what it feels like 100% of the time when you have a premature baby living in the hospital. We had two, our sweet brother and sister twins, Colby Makana and Bellamy Ali’ikai Silva, whose arrival via sudden, unexpected and rapid vaginal birth at 32 weeks launched […]
The hubs and I are no strangers to large renovation projects. Our first house was a tiny (900 square feet!) place just outside of Boston that needed overhauling from floors to roof. Originally we purchased that house to “flip it”, right before the big real estate crash and also right before we had three babies […]
Caleb is my oldest child. He broke me in both physically and emotionally into the job of motherhood. He was a healthy child, full of energy and adventure. From an early age, I recognized that he was compassionate and extremely curious about the world around him. Although at times frustrating, he could also match me […]
