I was sweeping the porch and she climbed up into this seat and made herself comfortable. I'm fairly certain some of her babble could be translated as, "You missed a spot!" ☺️ #itsaroughlife #being1

Just finished Addison's teacher conference. Look who can now write her name with absolutely no help at all!!! Woot woot!!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ (stolen off of my Insta stories) #shamelessmombrag #downsyndromeawesome

Waiting to pickup Addison. Scared to death when a large teenager approached the driver's seat from behind me. Even more terrified when I realized this handsome, huge dude was Carter. Wasn't he just a newborn- yesterday???? And now he's "too big" to stay in his seat while parked and waiting. πŸ˜‚ Someone slow down time!!! ⏳⌚️🚫 #alsosendabarber

#tbt to when Addison was 3 and nonverbal. Now she chatters up a storm- constantly! LOL. Wish I could have looked into the future to know this was coming!!!! #speechtherapistsrock #nonverbal #downsyndromecutie #allthewords #timehop

When loading the dishwasher becomes an Olympic sport. #momlife #extrahelper

The witching hour. Made so much easier by crockpot sweet and sour chicken, sliced strawberries, steamed veggies, and muffins from my student's sweet mom.#feedthem #allthefood #andthen #BED πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸŽ‰πŸ˜€ #momlife

Thanks for humoring me with my first attempt at an Insta story! Finally got the boys home and everyone is down for naps. Was going to do some work, but decided to take a short book/tea breather out on the deck instead before we go pickup Addison. This morning's agenda wore me out!!! Plus- sunshine!!! How can I not step outside to acknowledge this Vermont rarity?β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈπŸ™ŒπŸ»

First we tried going to a fun new hamburger place- couldn't find parking- hiked over- the place was so crowded we knew the kids couldn't wait- hiked back to the van. Then we tried Chinese food- they were smashed with a forever long wait too. Then we tried a local grill- closed early. Soooo Wendy's drive through it was! And then they forgot to give Aaron his sandwich so we had to go back. LOL. Apparently dinner out on Mother's Day is a rare impossibility at 5pm.πŸ˜‚ #rookiemistake Oh well. Fun family adventure! And awkward picture attempts against random brick walls along the way.😜 I love this crew! 😍

Barely resisting randomly shouting out, "Now sing!!!!! SING TO ME!!! YOU POOR UNFORTUNATE SOULS!!!! SING!" In my most evil voice while gesturing wildly toward my new necklace. I think we need a movie afternoon today. πŸ˜‚ On another note- I love my new jewelry. Witty jewelry- how did he know I would love this? 😜

I just walked into a serious waffle-making crew situation. They all shouted, "Get back in bed!!! We're taking this to you IN BED!!!" Daddy's giving them all jobs and I'm listening in via the couch with my coffee. It's hilarious and sweet and something smells really good. (Update- I can hear the boys scream fighting in the garage over the syrup and Addison is taking advantage of this distraction to eat half the bag of chocolate chips. *sips coffee* Daddy's got this.☺️) #mothersdayshenanigans β˜•οΈπŸ΄ #lovethisman

Loving my Mother's Day gift from @nickelandsuede! Favorite new earrings! Seriously amazing. They fit perfectly over my bumpy, baby-ravaged body. πŸ˜‚πŸ’ƒπŸ»Also- someone remind me to tell Aaron that this is what he got me. 😜
