Married with Children.

I recently heard that the new divorce rate for married couples is 43% for first marriages and jumps to 67% for second marriages. That combined with the statistic that couples with multiples are three times more likely to divorce makes me feel a little doomed. This is my second marriage, I have triplets, and truth be told my marriage often times does feel the stress of our lives.

I heard another interesting remark on the subject of marriage & children recently and dug around online to find some discussion about it. This is the belief that the secret to a happiness and longevity in a marriage is keeping your husband first, kids second. This sparked my interest since I have never considered this the order of my priorities, my kids have been above all since the moment they were brought in to this world.

Here is some of the discussion

What are your thoughts on this subject? What are your secrets to a strong, happy marriage while managing the stress of having children? I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas...

Help, I am trapped in a Zoo!

Well, sometimes it's more like a pet store depending on which animal alter ego we are. Today I have two kitty cats and a "mommy cat". The two kitty cats are trapped under laundry baskets and will not stop

Irony= this Mommy is highly allergic to cats, hmmmmm?

Earlier, and quite often actually, it feels like the running of the bulls in my house. For instance the phone rings...suddenly there is me and three little people around me running for the same phone. Someone's bound to get trampled :/

Thoughts for today...

Thank God for Chick fil A indoor playgrounds:)

My kids are so cute, how'd I do that?

How can someone so cute be such a pistol?

Where is my usb cable so I can download these pictures???

How in the heck did my Verizon bill get to $700?

Little butts look so cute in underwear. Hopefully we will get over poop in the potty anxiety soon:)

Hope everyone is savoring the beautiful days of spring as much as I am!

Ahhhhh Spring

Spring is here and I feel myself coming back to life. Time goes by so fast when your not blogging! I am wondering how many precious, humorous, or down right awful moments I have missed documenting and are now trapped somewhere in my memory reserves? I vow to get consistent with this blogging thing. It makes me feel better, and sometimes when I go back and read my own words it's like an out of body experience. It will be a fun treat for my kids to enjoy later.

I got a laptop and I quit my full time job at MAC to be a freelancer so I have no excuses. I am now doing makeup on the side for fashion shows, print & editorial work, and hopefully some weddings very soon. I also freelance for MAC and Smashbox when I feel like going far that's not often. I am loving it. MAC was the perfect place to point me in the right direction. I never knew I had this natural talent and passion. I wish I could have discovered this 10 years ago, I might have won an Oscar by

The kids....well, that's just what they are. My babies are now kids with imaginations, oodles of questions, loads of personality, and voices...OMG Loud voices! My home is a noisy, messy, chaotic place. It is also more importantly a place of happiness, laughter, learning, and so much love. It feels nice to have a little freedom. Being able to let them wander to the basement and play by themselves, walking through target on foot and all staying together, it's the little things that make a big difference.

I have lots of pictures to download so those will be up soon. I can't wait to make the rounds and see how your little cuties have grown and catch up on your lives! Thank you all for your love and support after Courtney's death, your kind words are near and dear to my heart. Talk to ya soon!
