What’s Going On…

So besides baby updates and a few other miscellaneous posts I haven’t really written a blog post in AGES!! Sorry about that but the whole having three kids thing is taking up a lot of my time.

My days have been filled with a lot of crazy lately.  Here are just a few things that I could unscramble out of my mommy brain and put into words.


  • The two and a half hours in the morning that I am alone with all three boys is pure torture. I am secretly plotting my first glass of wine for the day.  But I don’t think that the phrase “it’s 5 o’clock somewhere” applies to 5am
  • I wonder when I will be brave enough to go somewhere with all three of them by myself.  Maybe when they can drive me?
  • Colic sucks.  I was okay with it when it was from 9-10pm every night.  Then it was from 7-10pm and now it starts around 4-5pm and doesn’t end until about 10pm.  I know it’s mainly because he is exhausted but he refuses to sleep. I will rock him, feed him, change him, bounce him, drive him around in the car, etc.  Nothing will get him to sleep.
  • Breaking up a fight between a 4 year old and a 6 year old is really hard.  Especially when you are propping a bottle under your chin and holding the 6 week old while dragging the four year old to the time out step.  Oh and the 6 year old is trying to pull my pants down.
  • Is it wrong to bring wine to the bus stop at 4pm?
  • I am ready to do my throat lozenges commercial {just like Martha Stewarts} but I will endorse another brand of lozenges.  I yell so much that my throat is sore each and every day.
  • Three hours every night to get two boys to bed is just WRONG.  Do you hear me Ben and Sean — it’s WRONG.  No, you don’t need another glass of water, no I will not read another book, no I will not snuggle you for another 1/2 hour, no there are no monsters coming to get you.  JUST GO TO SLEEP NOW.
  • There isn’t enough coke zero in New Jersey to keep me wide awake at 2pm every day.
  • Sean goes to extended day at his school on Mondays and Wednesday.  Why God oh WHY don’t they offer this 5 days a week.  Two days is not enough!!!
  • I read this in another blog post this week – all wipe containers should have a warning as to when you are nearing the last wipe.  Every time I am cleaning up a massive diaper I run out of wipes.  The last 10 wipes should be a different color to warn parents that you are close to the end. They do it with tissues, so why not wipes!
  • How can a 4 year old boy who has been up since 5:30am still have so much energy at 9pm?
  • Seriously wine in a tervis at the bus stop should be okay, right? {oh did I ask that already?}
  • It’s taken me four days to write this post.  While typing this over the four days I have broken up 27 fist/foot fights, dragged a 4 year old to time out 19 times.
  • THANK GOD for friends!  Thank you ladies for letting me vent to  you over breakfast or at school drop off or via text. You know who you are!!!!

  1. Oh man, my heart totally goes out to you and seriously I will admit that I do not miss colic and I only had one when my baby did have the worst case of colic, which started at 11 pm and last until the wee hours of the morning. I do promise it will pass, but I know when you are going through it seems like it will never end and remember that feeling so well. Thinking of you and sending a ton of hugs your way 🙂

  2. It will get easier. Ours are 8, 6, and 4 years, but the fighting is enough to drive you crazy. I don’t know, if that’s just what kids do or how to stop it at this point. separating them seems to works best. Best of Luck!!! Love your blog! ~Jenny

    • I just need a bigger house Jen! LOL. The older two are so afraid of being alone but they fight nonstop when they are together! UGH!!!! I keep waking up each day praying it’s just a little easier!! Just one less fight!

  3. It’s so nice to vent. As moms we have to have a place to throw our frustrations out and most moms completely understand. I give it to ya for having three boys and you can still put sentences together..haha.

    P.S. this may sound strange but my son had colic and a vacuum calmed him down right away…not sure why but I heard it somewhere and tried it…worked like a charm! I was desperate 😉

    • Thanks Jamie! I have used the vacuum a few times and it’s worked about 1/2 the time. I also have started putting him in his carseat and driving him around. He will sleep in that thing after a car ride for a few hours!!! It’s just hard to do that at dinner/bath/homework time!!! I guess that’s why god invented grapes so we could make wine! LOL

  4. ABSOLUTELY, wine at the bus stop is ok! Love your blog.
