Welcome SITStas!!

Today is my lucky day....I'm the featured blogger on SITS (The Secret is in the Sauce). If you don't know about this site, you must check it out! It's a wonderful way to connect with other bloggers!

So I want to extend a warm welcome to the SITStas who are visiting my blog for the first time....and to those of you who are return visitors, welcome back!!

Find a cozy place to sit, grab a warm muffin smothered in butter and a cup of coffee (loaded with caffeine, of course) and relax for awhile, while I fill you in on the necessary details.

My husband, Tim, and I have been married for over 7 years and we have 2 sets of twins. Yes, I said 2 sets of twins. Go ahead and push your eyeballs back into their sockets....I'll wait. Here's the last family picture we took, which was back in November 2008....and based on that disastrous experience, we probably will not do another family portrait until....hmmmm, well....at least the year 2015.



Cole and Bella, our 1st set of twins) are 4 years old (about to turn 5 next month). They just started kindergarten this year and I thought I was going to sob a river of tears on their first day! Everyone tells you that their childhood goes by quickly....believe it. Cole and Bella are energetic, imaginative, mischievous and hysterically funny. And while they drive me nuts about 85% of the time, I feel so blessed to be their mother.



Garrett and Landon, our 2nd set of twins, are 2 years old. They are boys in every sense of the word....they love all things muddy, smelly, disgusting and dirty. But they are the sweetest, most precious little boys with personalities that are bigger than they are.



Some of you may be wondering how we ended up with 2 sets of twins....most people are curious, when they see us out and about. Probably the most strangest way someone has asked about our situation, after we had our 2nd set, was, "Did you need help to get pregnant?" I'm assuming the person meant "medical intervention" but I answered, "Uh, well, my husband helped for about 5 minutes". Have I mentioned that I tend to be sarcastic at times? Okay, if I'm gonna be honest, I'm sarcastic most of the time.

The short version is that we finally conceived Cole and Bella on our 3rd IVF cycle. Garrett and Landon were born 2 years later, spontaneously and much to our surprise. I was the girl who was told by every doctor she saw, "You only have a 1-3% chance of conceiving a take-home baby". That just goes to show you that doctors don't know everything and that God does, indeed, have a sense of humor. I'm living proof of that, as my blog title says.

In my former life, I was a Program Director for a private foster family agency. I enjoyed what I did and the most rewarding part of it all was when a child's story would have a happy ending, whether it was adoption, reunification with a birth parent or living with a foster family who treated the child as if they were their own.

After I had our 1st set of twins, I decided to stay home with them. When people ask me when I plan on returning to work, I just stare at them for a few seconds and then I say, "Returning to work? I never STOPPED working!!" Being a SAHM is definitely the most difficult, most challenging "job" I've ever had. At the same time, I couldn't imagine doing anything else as rewarding. I have a lot of respect and admiration for moms who work outside the home....motherhood is an amazing juggling act.

Besides being a mom and a wife, I enjoy reading (in all my spare time, right?), writing (I'm hoping to get published someday!!), traveling, drinking an occasional glass of wine and, in desperate and stressful moments, I have been known to lock myself in the laundry room while pigging out on a jar of Marshmallow Fluff. I'm trying desperately to teach myself how to bake and decorate cakes, which is going somewhat well...I think. And I have a wicked sense of humor....my belief is that life is too short to be serious all the time. You gotta laugh at the little things....or you just might go insane (in my world, anyway).

I had a hard time choosing just 3 blog posts to share with you all so I'll list the ones below that I did pick, but if you have some time and want to do more poking around here, go check out the "favorite posts" in my left sidebar. While you're over there, why not check out the "awesome blogs" on my blogroll....if you're looking for some excellent new reads, definitely check those out!

Memo to the Bosses (a letter I wrote to my kids, with the hopes of renogiating my parental contract)

What He Says vs What I Hear (all about the simple misunderstandings between husbands and wives)

Oh, Why Didn't Anyone Ever Tell Me? (the brutal truth about motherhood that no one ever tells you)

If you're new to my blog, I hope you'll come back and visit again. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Trenches of Mommyhood said...

I know what you mean - I had my first two children via fertility treatments...and then #3 boy was conceived - after I had just had my newborn.
So my youngest 2 are only 12-1/2 months apart.
God is SO funny!
Enjoy your SITS day!

Christina Lee said...

WOW!!! Seriously, I hear that kind of story all the time (people conceiving on their own after the fact). Happy SITS day!!

MommyJ said...

Happy to be here through SITS... I have one set of twins... they just started kindergarten as well. My two subsequent pregnancies, I have been terrified that I would spontaneously have twins again. Don't get me wrong, I would do it again, but sheesh! It's hard work bringing two into this world at once!

I am thrilled that your second set were such a spontaneously wonderful surprise. My sister had IVF for her first pregnancy (twins as well) and is now on spontaneous pregnancy number 2. She never dreamed she'd have four kids! Anyway... love your blog. :)

Christine said...

You have a beautiful family and a wonderful sense of humor. Sarcastic? Pshaw! That's the way we communicate in our family, so we just call it funny:)

Happy SITS day and congrats on being the featured blogger. Wow, two sets of twins, that's pretty amazing. It sounds like they are a handful and a blessing at the same time. Thanks for sharing your adventures with them with the world. You have a very nice writing style (what does that mean anyway? My professors in grad school always used to say that) Keep up the blogging, I'm sure it's great to have that outlet!
And to know you're not alone!

Very cool...love your story! My college roommate had triplets and then twins so i have seen it in action myself! Hats off to you!

Congratulations! When we were expecting our first child, the doctor asked us how long we had tried to become pregnant. My husband said, about 10 minutes...
I think that doctor probably rethought his bedside manner a bit since then...

I didn't know Cole and Bella weren't 5 yet...our school districts in PA are strict with age requirements so poor Ryan will be starting school when he is 5 turning 6 because he is a November baby. :(

Hope you have a great 1st day of Autumn! :)

Happy SITS Day! I always enjoy reading other people's take on mommyhood...and life. The "Memos to the Bosses" had me rolling on the floor.

Happy SITS day!!!!!!

and... crazy that you have two sets of twins, but I bet it really isn't that crazy.

I have three boys, a 14 year gap and a 13 month gap (19, 5, and almost 4). All of my friends with twins thought I was the crazy one because of the big gap and the 13 month gap. To them a 13 month gap is alot more difficult. It's really not too bad at all. They are best buddies.

Sorry I missed your SITS day. You know I had infertility problems and I had my first after 7 years of "stuff" the second after another 6 years and my cute caboose with no trying at all....and you are proof that God has a sence of humor. I'm just glad He is using it on you and didn't use it on me!!

Sorry I missed it but it was fun to learn a few new things about you, like what you did before you were a SAHM!!! You always amaze me.

Hey Helene!! I am a couple of days late but still wanted to stop by and congratulate you on being FB. I hope your SITS day was wonderful. You definitely have your handsfull with all of your blessings. I had to take two or three looks at your hubs he looks just like a guy I went to high school with named Barry. Boy they could be twins!!! lol

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
