a few of my favorite things (mommy edition)…

14 Jul

so i keep thinking we will get the black pics up. and we may yet, but seriously things have been crazy. in not so crazy ways. and i have no good excuse except to say they haven’t been uploaded. and clearly they aren’t here. but i thought in the interim i would post something. just in case anyone is reading along…

there are a few things that have made my life better easier liveable since the wigglers were born. most of these aren’t actually “mom” type of things. but they are the things that have made all of the difference thus far.

#1 – De.longhi espresso machine. seriously this has possibly saved my life on innumerable occasions. and it has paid for itself. very. very quickly. #2 – it’s a tight contest between this incredible cuisinart immersion blender and the espresso machine for favorite kitchen item. making baby food is ridiculously easy. and hook doesn’t seem to mind the yogurt and fruit smoothies so much either…

#3 – i am a kindle convert. i had no interest in one before the wigglers arrived. i just silently started to accept the fact that i would be never able to read again. i mean who can hold a book and nurse two babies. or rock them. or have them sleep on you. and then m gave me a kindle and oh the possibilities! i have read no less than 10 books on this so far (how many of those i actually recall from my bleary eyed sleep deprived state is far less). i also have the kindle app on my phone and it synches automatically back and forth so i can stay awake read off my phone during late night feedings.

#4 – tandem feeding is not the easiest skill to master. and i for one never truly mastered it. i mean i did it quite a lot for the first five months. and then the wiggers got, well, too wiggly. so now i feed them one at a time. but in the early days this pillow (even with its chessey name – my b.rest fri.end) was indeed a cherished companion. #5 – liber.te yogurt. seriously delightful. if you haven’t tried it i highly. highly suggest it. i am a big fan of the coconut. and the lemon. but i haven’t found one i don’t like.

there are many many other things that have helped me through the past almost 7 months but right now these top my list. i am consulting with the wigglers to come up with their list as well…

    I love your list. That pillow saved me until 10 months! Also, we have a kick-ass espresso machine.
    But…what?!!! Your twins are already 7 months old?!!

    I love 4 out of the 5 (everything except the pillow lol) That yogurt is to die for, especially the passion fruit kind.
