Chalkboard Signs Even If You Are Not An Artist

Chalkboard Signs Even If You Are Not An Artist

Chalkboard signs are all the rage right now.  BUT… I am not an artist, I love to craft, but that does not mean I’m overly artistic at all. When my twin granddaughters turned one in March I wanted to make some really super cool, amazing, awesome, artistic, fantastic chalkboard signs like I have seen on Pinterest and around the internet. I started searching and found several people selling them with … Continue Reading →

Protect Your Grandchildren (or children) at Home

You all know I simply adore my twin granddaughters – they are now just a little over a year old. I want to make sure that as a grandma, well ok my grandma name is Ga-Ga, that the girls will be safe when they are in my home. With every generation things change in a variety of ways so I have to keep up now with the new changes in … Continue Reading →
Germs and Cooties and Coughs, Oh My! Twins Starting Daycare

Germs and Cooties and Coughs, Oh My! Twins Starting Daycare

You may remember that not too long ago we started the twins in daycare. I had no idea how many germs and cooties and coughs came along with that change! When my son was young I never used a daycare, I was always a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom) and he never had very many colds, coughs, viral infections, etc. Now I know why! I do have to say though … Continue Reading →
Daddy Bear Returns

Daddy Bear Returns

When my son was little he received a Hallmark bear on his first Valentine’s Day in 1995. He loved this bear and it instantly became his comfort item. So much so that I bought a second one because I had read to get two of whatever the comfort item was so you could swap them out and wash them. Good idea, but it didn’t work. T (my son) knew right … Continue Reading →

A Day in the Life of Twins, Grandma and the Droid #MotoZ and Moto Mods

Right now I am still watching my twin granddaughters full-time. It is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. They are (almost) 6 months old and getting to be quite the handful as they become more and more active. I also recently received a new Droid #MotoZ from @Verizon #VZWBuzz #ad, along with several of the Moto Mods. This Droid Moto Z smartphone and the mods are … Continue Reading →
Twins Eating Solid Food for First Time!

Twins Eating Solid Food for First Time!

Okay, I have to share another proud grandma moment. This week my twin granddaughters, Violet and Valerie, had their first solid foods – rice cereal! It was so fun being able to be here with them for this first and I love that we were also able to do a Facebook Live video so that our other family members could watch them as well. For those curious which twin is … Continue Reading →
Full-Time Grandma Duties – I’m getting old!

Full-Time Grandma Duties – I’m getting old!

So for those wondering where I have been the last several days, here is the explanation. First, you all know that my amazing twin granddaughters, Violet and Valerie, were born on March 10. It is so wonderful being a grandma even though I still feel far to young to be one. At the time the twins were born (and for a bit before) my son, T, and DIL, Caitlan (she’s … Continue Reading →
20 Things You Didn’t Know About Twins [Infographic]

20 Things You Didn’t Know About Twins [Infographic]

This week’s infographic is 20 things you didn’t know about twins! I had to find something related to my twin granddaughters. Now the infographic, while about twins, isn’t specific for the most part on identical versus fraternal. My new twin granddaughters are fraternal. That means they are actually no similar than any other two babies born at different times actually. Fraternal twins happen when 2 different eggs are fertilized. Identical … Continue Reading →
I Love My Granddaughters

I Love My Granddaughters

I cannot help but share! My new granddaughters are amazing! Today I was able to hold Valerie for the first time even! Violet is still in her incubator so I haven’t been able to hold her just yet, but hopefully soon. They are both doing really well though and hopefully they will not have to stay in the hospital for a long time. Mommy is doing well and is being … Continue Reading →
