The Chronicles of a Wife

Living the dream...one story at a time!

Sooo apparently…

Sooo apparently… If your two year old falls asleep in the car for ten seconds or longer he will not nap.  This summer it happened a few days in a row.  It’s really no big deal… Sooo apparently… Even our soap is dirty.  I can’t even keep up with it right now.  If I become […]

Summer Loving!

Hi Everyone! Yes, I’m still alive.  Summer is in full swing!  I’d like to tell you that everything is going awesome and I am full of energy and keeping up with my kids, but we all know that is not what this blog is about.  I.feel.exhausted.  But, we are having a good summer.  We have […]

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 […]
