The “NO” stage

On: March 22nd, 2011 at 9:12 am | Number of Comments » 0

There sure are plenty of joys being a Mom of Twins.  The holding of each other’s hand, the quirky mirror movements when they’re babies, the playing together, giving each other kisses.  And we expect the challenges – sleep deprivation, expense of diapering/feeding two babies at once, etc.  I even expect the challenges common with new [...]

It was a beautiful day today, one of those first 70 degree days with bright sunshine that serve as reminders that, even though we live in Ohio, spring has to come eventually.  And even though Daylight Savings Time severely messed with our bedtime/wake-up routines, we would take advantage of the sunlight hours after work and [...]

James’ First Haircut

Hey, this is the famous (or is it infamous) FoxTwins Daddy.  I’m taking over the blog tonight and stepping out from the shadows to post a video I had floating around on my cell phone.  I’ve been wanting to post it for awhile, but didn’t want to split it up due to it being 14 minutes [...]

Highs and Lows

High – Tim took me to Don Pablos for dinner Saturday night.  (Does it count as date night if two two-year olds and sippy cups were involved?) Low – We had a drive an hour to get there. High – Queso dip and fajitaaaaaaaaas. Low – So much queso dip and fajitas I could hardly [...]

Just a little story

I want to share a story with you really quickly.  I don’t want this space to be any place where you feel preached at or uncomfortable – but I have to share with you something that is amazing. A blogger I read, Love (that’s her name, how cool is that??) has a son who was [...]

Get a haircut, and get a real job!

Sorry for the abysmal posting recently here on the site.  We’ve left you high a dry since Christmas.  Maybe you thought we all got stuck in the Christmas spirit and pretended we were in the movie Groundhog Day, only with Christmas day. …okay, so you probably didn’t really think that.  We did kind of get stuck in [...]

Christmas Morn!

Yeah, we’re behind in showing you our Christmas morning photos.  But I maintain that it is still the “Christmas season” until I take my tree down.  And now that I have an artificial tree it may well be March before Christmas ends at the FoxTwins house! Holy piles of presents, batman!  And this wasn’t even [...]

Christmas Eve

Yeah yeah, it’s already 2011, I know.  But I think you will still like these photos, I promise. Unlike many “mommy bloggers,” photography is not my thing.  I love an easy point and shoot.  I love taking snapshots.  Nothing that will win any photo contests ever.  Sometimes I think I even prefer to have look [...]

2010 Year In Review

The third calendar year in the life of FoxTwins is in its waning hours.  Last year at this time only one of the babies were walking (and wobbly so), sippy cups were new and weird contraptions, most foods were exciting and at least tasted, and I really meant babies when I called Emma and James, [...]
