The Chronicles of a Wife

Living the story at a time!

Mornings for Moms

I made pancakes for Ben because we have a late start today.  You would think that late start means we have more time to sleep in and get things ready.  That is a myth…a lie from the devil himself! Anyhow, back to the pancakes.  I decided to put blueberries in the last one and have […]

“Grand” Parenting

I saw this on Facebook the other day and thought it was so true! I often find it hard to believe that the same woman who raised me is the grandmother of my children.  The same woman that told me to swallow my spit after crying out in thirst is the same woman that brings […]

Baby Fever

There’s been a lot of baby fever the last few weeks with the royal baby being born.  Since they didn’t announce it on PBS Kids, I didn’t realize the Princess had gone in to labor until my mom told me the news.  I got online to see what was happening and lo and behold, the […]

Throwback Thursday

Happy Thursday, everyone.  Matt and I had a conversation about his clothes this weekend and it made me think of an old blog from 2011.  Check it out below. Well, where are MG’s clothes now??  All of our neighbors can tell you.  I came home the other day to find MG’s clothes hanging from our […]

I’m not Pinterested

I was looking on Pinterest today trying to find ideas for our yard this summer.  What can I do with our sand box and water table, etc. Oh wait, I didn’t get this picture on Pinterest.  This is the water table in our backyard.  My kids know how to get dirty…and that’s ok.  Kids should […]

Mom-Life Crisis

I’m sure you’ve all heard of a mid-life crisis.  I guess I’m very close to being eligible for a mid-life crisis (insert panic attack here), but lately I feel like I’m having a mom-life crisis. Even though I know that raising my kids is the most important job I will EVER have, it’s hard not […]

Spring Break and Beyond

Happy Monday, everyone.  I’m glad to be getting back to normal and blogging again! We have enjoyed a cold but great Spring Break, and had our annual cabin camping trip this last weekend. We enjoyed a nice Spring break even though the weather was cold and crummy.  Matt took the week off and surprisingly enough, […]

Flashback Friday

Happy Good Friday!  We are getting ready to start our Spring Break and I’m getting ready to have all my children AND my husband home for an entire week!  I’m feeling rather sentimental today and thought it would be a good day to bake my grandma’s raisin cookies.  I sure do miss her.  The cookies […]

Celebrating Spring!

Tuesday was the first day of Spring.  It was also free cone day at DQ!  Not many things are better than free ice cream.  It put me in such a good mood I was totally cool giving my two-year old his own ice cream cone to have and to hold.  It was a 45 minute […]

Pinterest Worthy Parenting

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone.  I have noticed that once you start a tradition with your kids you can’t stop.  They remember EVERYTHING.  So…here’s an easy trick to provide your child a Pinterest worthy holiday. First, whip up an easy pancake mix.  Keep it easy since you’ve had a child awake since 6:15.  I used […]
