mom knows jack

Jack turned four last weekend, and we celebrated with pizza, cake, ice cream, balloons, presents, and MONSTER JAM! We had a total blast, and as of yesterday, we’re still recovering. My plan, (don’t laugh) now that Jack is four, is to start making him sit for practical homeschool lessons. We’ve been focusing on letters and […]

What’s new since my last update post? A whole lot I’m sure, but a lot is also the same which is kinda great. Jeremy turns 32 on the 13th, and he doesn’t want me to talk about it. He’s asked for no cake and no fuss. But of course, he’ll get both. Jack is rounding […]

Jack and I had fun with these Valentine’s day inspired photos. I got the tattoo idea from Pinterest, but for mine, I used a watercolor pencil (Crayola brand). Jack is a bit wiggly, and it didn’t turn out as neat as I would’ve liked, but it’s still a cute sentiment.

Fall semester is over, and I am presently enjoying the second of two consecutive days off. I was going to wait to blog about my fall semester until after grades have been posted, but decided that I am proud of myself regardless of grades. Like last semester I did not miss any class time or any assignments. But […]

I have been sorely neglecting this blog. I just haven’t felt like devoting any time to it. I’m not sure why exactly. Maybe I have just gotten lazy about it now that Jack is a full blown toddler. But if you are curious for an update here goes: Jack is knee deep in the terrible […]

Jack is closer to being a two-year-old, then he is to a one-year-old. A fact which continues to boggle my mind daily.  Where did this big boy come from? He was 30 pounds at his last baby well checkup. It seems like another lifetime ago that I was counting his breaths as his tiny 3-pound […]

Jack is going everywhere at top speed all the time. He loves to talk and talk and talk, and sometimes we can even understand him. He also enjoys laughing, yelling, fake sneezing, fake coughing, and dancing with the use of just his arms. He enjoys books very much, but lately, he prefers to read the book […]

The days are long, but the time is short. Jack will be 19 months old on Friday. How the hell did that happen!? It’s all going by so fast…that cliche is so true, blink and it’s over. I’m doing my best to soak up as much of Jacks toddler-hood as possible, my husband is too, […]

It has been a while since I’ve done an update post, every day is the same while somehow managing to keep me on my toes. Jack is everywhere and fast. He’s the size of a 2.5-year-old with the strength to match, which makes for a terrifying combination in an 18-month-old. When I use the word […]

Okay, so I haven’t been keeping up on my blog. Shame on me I know. So here’s an update. Our teething saga continues… Jack just wrapped on his first-year molars, and now he’s on to the infamous “eye teeth”. That, coupled with the current heat wave we are enduring, has made for a very cranky […]
