I hope I have the courage to tell my children some of my most embarrassing stories.
Some are stories I’ve shared with no one, not my closest friends and not even my husband.
I hope I can tell them about the pain other people can cause, about the scars words you hear or say can leave, and about the feelings we all have – whether we’re on the basketball team, the chess team or on no team at all.
If I can’t bear to disclose the embarrassing details, I hope I can figure out an anonymous spin that’s equally or more effective than the raw truth.
I hope my failed childhood friendships and embarrassing incidents can do more than haunt me. I hope they can save my kids from feeling unnecessary pain – or worse, causing that pain in others.
until I tried to take a cuddling photo.
I got some quality post-nap cuddles today ...
One of my favorite ETC apps of all time - Letter School. Toby has gotten to Level 2, so the completed (shaded) letters now show what he actually drew. Proud mama!
Checkup day! ETC have been similarly sized & consistently staggered since their start, so I'm not sure why numbers like these are a surprise each time. Eleanor leapfrogged past Toby (she's not the peanut anymore!), though T did make a move up the WHO char
Kids & cats - what is it about cramming into tiny boxes? Meow!
Vomit. One victim, two occurrences, & ETC’s well check is in the morning. Ha!
I've done it! I've spent an obscene amount of money at Starbucks this year! ✨☕️
Callista, Toby, Eleanor! I'm impressed with those who were right! #tbt #triplets
Three years & a lifetime ago. I know who's who - do you? #tbt #triplets
Seasoned ground beef + shredded cheese + crescent rolls = homemade hot pockets. I sometimes come up with good ideas.
Quick blanket/yogurt break. It's sunny, but it isn't exactly warm! Don't tell ETC that. They're in denial - shivers & all! "Mom, this is FUN!!!!"
Hilton Head isn't exactly on the way home from Orlando, but ...
These craft caddies from Target's dollar spot are perfect for ETC's road trip lunches.
ETC & I had such a fun weekend getting in some quality time with Sarah & Ethel. Does it really have to end?
These kiddos. They're too much.
ETC almost knocked over poor Minnie. Excited much?
