This post was brought to you by Mommy's Club.  All opinions are mine.  I received complimentary products in order to facilitate this review.

Nights are crazy around here, thanks to sleep disturbances, phases, and newborn babies.  I made this meme for Daddy to help add humor to our exhaustion.

Under the Lights Projector

Bedtime is always an experience.  We have finally settled into a semi-routine after the boys moved in to the same room together and again after the time change.  Sometimes the boys need a distraction to keep them in their room AND not talking to each other.  Most of the time it's D trying to talk to [...]

Our summer garden is coming to an end, but the okra is still holding on.  It has been so hot here, I just don't want to go pick the okra some days, so, when I finally make it out there, there are a few pieces that are overgrown and hard.  I had been throwing some into the composter, but the other day we tried okra painting.  The boys had a blast.
