Flying with Four-Year-Old Twins

Romy and Piper at Sundance Resort
I’ve posted in the past about flying with twin babies, and then posted again about flying with twin toddlers. I’ve referred back to those posts so many times and shared them with friends and followers who ask for travel tips. This last trip I took with the girls felt different – like there was so much STUFF we no longer needed. It was bittersweet – freeing in a lot of ways but of course a…

Making the Switch: From Cribs to Toddler Beds

Switching from Cribs to Toddler Beds
We FINALLY made the switch from cribs to toddler beds last month, and I’m here to tell you all about it! First of all, I have no regrets about how long I kept Romy and Piper in their cribs. They turned three in September, and I suddenly felt so much pressure to transition them to beds. While I’m glad I went ahead and did it, I do think I could have kept them in cribs…

Romy & Piper’s 3rd Birthday Party, Toy Story Style

Twins 3rd birthday - Toy Story party theme
I remember our friends having to cancel their twins’ birthday party back in March, and thinking “Thank goodness Romy and Piper’s birthday is so far away, this will all be over by then.” Uh, nope! Here we are in September, and having a really big kid birthday party still sounds like a dumb idea. When I realized we couldn’t do our usual big party (we did a big breakfast/cowgirl bash at Zoomars for their first…

Moving On

I haven’t felt like getting personal on here for a while…a long time in fact! But I do want to update you that yes, we moved. When I found out I was pregnant, we were living in a little two-bedroom apartment. We’d been wanting to buy, so I thought we could casually look while I was pregnant in case we could make something work, but otherwise we’d be fine in our apartment. However, once I…

The Playhouse Remodel

The grandparents bought this playhouse for the girls’ birthday last year, and I finally got around to re-painting it! When I was picking paint colors, a reader sent me this post by Almost Makes Perfect. At first I didn’t want to copy her colors, but then I decided I loved what she picked and why re-invent the wheel? šŸ˜‰ So if you want the paint color info, she details it all out in her post!…

Quarantine Schedule: Working from Home with Toddlers

We are on our third week of quarantine over here, and definitely on the roller coaster that comes with that. Some days it feels heavy and overwhelming, and some days I am able to be more positive and enjoy the simple moments with my little girls. Truly I am grateful to have twins right now – I’m so grateful they have each other in this weird time where they can’t see or play with other…
