I Love Coffee!! It is that rich aroma when you grind the beans that is so very enticing and the rich smooth taste with a hint of Sweet Italian Cream, ohhhhh it is the best creamer ever invented. The creamer was introduced to us by Tin Man and Ruby Red slippers. KUDOS

Now we have a new way to drink coffee in the am, his and hers mugs.

A v- day gift from my lovable scarecrow. Ohhh how very sweet you must be thinking he is not scary at all.. I want them too. Yes you can get them, he ordered them online at Get this... they even have a black heart in the bottom of the mug. Sweet pea and little sprout would love to get their hands on them. We just let them know they are reserved for the Mr. and MRS :)

For any coffee connoisseurs out there may I suggest a new coffee? Not one you can find around here..... It is FAIR WAGE COFFEE!! This provides farmers in third world countries a fair wage for the beans they grow. It helps them afford the necessities- clean water, food, and health care. The 963 Coffee project was created to care for the poor, orphans, and provide meds for people living with HIV/ AIDS. The coffee is GOOD by the way, we have 10 bags to get through!! Check it out

Here is a belated happy Valentines from Sweet pea and little sprout!!

OH, yes we all feel good. The CRUD as my mom and one blogger termed it lasted for five long days.
Now we are back to bathing once a week, not 3-4 x per day. Life is good!!
Sweet pea and little sprout are hollering for more food (we are working on the sign language communication thing) crawling after one another, giggling, and not screaming with diaper changes :)))))))
They were a little serious for a day or so after the ordeal.

I am happy to report we are all singing along to "I FEEL GOOD" We hope you are FEELIN'GOOD as well.

Feelin' Not So Good

OHH we were not feelin' so good superbowl sunday and beyond, but are slowly bouncing back.

Here is the short version.....

Sweet pea and little sprout picked something up from a sick baby at a moms group I attended

Why do moms take their sick kids anywhere?!!!

Lo and behold vomiting and diarrhea ensued. Now do remember I am in the medical field and have been around the above mentioned. This is my first experience as a mom.

Oh my, who can prepare you for the smell of baby vomit, I mean TWO babies vomit!!!!!!

I was covered in it one night in particular and my clothes still smell after washing them.

Not to leave out the diarrhea. I 've became quite expert at bathing two infants side by side in the sink. Multiple times a day. Oh those poor baby bottoms, thank God for neosporin, antifungal cream and butt paste!!

Did I mention scarecrow and I were sick at the same time. MY, my it is hard taking care of sick kidlets while you feel like you are on deaths door. It is times like this (sleeping right by the toilet, cleaning up your own barf bucket....) that you just want your own mom. I banned mine from coming over , I sure don't want nana to get this!!

The good news. Scarecrow and I are better, the babies are coming along, they LOVE peialyte, whew!! A special bonus today: NO runny diapers, yet! I hope this finds you well and did not leave you sick to your stomach:0 Off to do more laundry!!!!
