Call Me Crazy

Call me crazy, call me worse even, but we are trying very hard to intstill healthy food habits with our children. It's not as easy as it sounds these days. Even the church nursery offers the crackers I work hard to avoid. No candy, no soda, no juice (yet), organic milk, minimal processed food, + baked sweet potato fries only please. These little turds are only 17 months old. We feel like there is plenty of time for all the junk America has to offer. Not yet twins, not yet.

Crazy, I know. Don't you just wish I was your mom??? Didn't think so. :)

I'm Not Afraid!

I'm never afraid when Brian does this. Never. I actually love to watch him throw those kids in the air. (By the pics, I'm sure it's pretty obvious.) I just love watching the trust the twins have for their daddy. It's the same trust I have in him, and what makes these times so exciting. These are the moments...

Lack of blogs is due to 3 reasons...




Kels + Lucca spoiled us with a very last minute visit for the whole week. Needless to say, we have been busy trying to keep up with 3 (adorable) toddlers. They are hilarious, busy and smart. Having children is awesome. Raising your children with your sis...the best!

I have had to fill out a lot of paperwork lately that has asked me to list my occupation. Job title....hmmmm--that is a very interesting question to ask a stay-at-home mama. Here are some of the options I'm considering using the next times I need to answer the same question.

Household Manager
Personal Assistant
Domestic Goddess
Short-order Cook
Meal Planner
Cleaning Lady
Ass Wiper
Wardrobe Consultant
Nurse/Boo-Boo Kisser
Playground Lady
Personal Shopper
Errand Runner
Social Coordinator
Party Planner
Hair Stylist
Freakin' Kiddie Clown
Beatboxer Extrordinnaire
Noise Maker
Shuttle Bus Driver
Dog Walker

I mean the list could go on and on. Believe me, I will be listing these in the future because sometimes 'mom' just seems boring. (Although any mom knows it is anything but!) Perhaps I will just write in ROCKSTAR. Because after a day of completing all of the above mentioned tasks, and more, I feel like one.

I'm proud to be the mama of this mess!

Sometimes it just amazes me that these 2 little people are here all because 2 people fell in love at little ole' Northwest University. We made these 2. I grew them. And together we are getting worked over on regular basis by 2 (adorable) toddlers. Can we all just hold hands and sing 'Circle of Life' together for a minute please?!?! I'm in one of those moods.

When it Gets Hot--

...Swishers head to the beach!

Wednesday, July 7, 2010


We have been busy here lately folks! Did I mention we moved??? To a brand new city??? We moved from a cookie-cutter neighborhood to a house on acreage. Life has definitely changed for Team Swish over the past 3 weeks. We have been busy unpacking + exploring. The unpacking is necessary, but the exploring is fantastic. New parks to discover, beaches to find, trails to walk, restaurants to try and so many sights to see.

Copy Cats

My sis took her little Coco on her first bike ride last week. Why hadn't I thought of that?!? Brian + I have always loved biking together. (We've pretty much been on an extended hiatus since I was pregs.) So when Kels mentioned that they did it, and Lucca loved it, we couldn't wait to try it too. The babies loved wearing their 'hats'. In fact, I think they wore them for about an hour and half after the ride. Needless to say, they loved it. We will be enjoying many, many more in the future.

Conversations With Lila

Lila looks all around + asks: 'Whursss dada?'

Lila answers: 'I dunno'

Lila answers (again): 'Wurkkk'

We are getting smarter around here folks!!!

An ode to Brian, by my bro Rus. Don't you just wish you were a part of this completely normal family.???
