Mall Walkers

Last weekend, we decided that we need to practice walking the triplets around in public without containment, so we took them to the mall one morning, sans stroller. We chose a Sunday morning before 12 at a local mall with an indoor playground, in order to minimize trouble.

I was mainly concerned about Willa, as she is the one who usually wants to take off on her own, but she was surprisingly great. With the exception of a few unnoticed (only briefly!) escapes from the playground area, she was very happy to behave, and actually walked the entire mall holding hands. We are making progress. Soon we will be able to go out and about like normal folks.

Ice Cream

This summer we have been making a lot of our own homemade ice cream - the little ones love it! It gives us a chance to practice eating with spoons. We found these great little bowls with suction cups on the bottom, that keep the bowls stuck to the table - no flying bowls of ice cream in our house!

Birthday giveaway!

I am very excited to be announcing another giveaway courtesy of the wonderful folks at

I know you guys are familiar with them by now. Here in our house, we've been in nesting mode, and lately I have spent a lot of time browsing CSN's great selection of furniture for a new bathroom vanity. I'm looking for ways to spruce up our very standard bathroom, and I love vanities that look like a piece of furniture. This one is my favorite - I've always wanted to have one of these raised basins -
This time, for our giveaway, we'll be offering a $40 gift certificate to, to be used at any one of their 200+ stores, to purchase anything you like. Cool, huh? The giveaway will run all this week, and a winner will be chosen on Saturday, July 10th - which just happens to be the triplets' second birthday (more on that to come!).

So, here's what you can do to win:


Visit here and tell me which vanity is your favorite. Super easy!
