Almost a year...to the day.

It's been almost a year, to the day, since I've blogged. I've thought many times about blogging again, but then, I get distracted, and it never happens.How can I sum up an entire year? Well, with four kids, hell, with any amount of children, that's a...

Making a change...

I've written a lot about our troubles and frustrations with Mairead since she has started school. We've tried troubleshooting and trying to get in contact with Mairead's teacher, but things just weren't getting any better, and in actuality, they were...

All or nothing

I've spoken before about how Lilah is an "All or Nothing" kind of kid. She has been like this ever since the day she was born. When she was an infant, she would either be sleeping heavily or screaming because she wanted to be fed yesterday. Anyone wh...

THE Hanging Bed!

From the moment we made the decision to move back home to Maine, we started planning how we will fit four children into two bedrooms, one of which is fairly small. We decided it would be best to keep the three girls together and let Prince Callum hav...

Celebrations!

This past weekend, we celebrated Clara and Kevin's birthday. It is kind of fun having their birthdays so close together! Because Clara's birthday fell on a Thursday, Kevin came home a day early to be home on Clara's actual birthday.On Clara's 3rd bir...

Add another to the list?... or maybe not?

Friday morning we finally had a fairly "successful" morning with Mairead. She ate her breakfast so well she made the morning bus! I have to admit, I enjoyed Friday morning. I put my baby girl on the school bus and continued to have a gloriously lazy...

A Dancing Soccer Player....

This year Lilah has been dying to play soccer. We signed her up for our fall community league. The day of soccer practice came and Lilah asked if she could wear her tutu to practice. At first I thought she was joking, but then I remembered who I was...

The Terrible 6s???

Everyone always talks about the terrible 2s! It's everywhere. And it's to the point where most parents are afraid of what demons will be possessing their sweet little babe. For me, the 2s in any of the girls were not bad. Yeah, there were those stage...

Special Times

One of the (many) difficult things of having four children, and having them close in age, is making sure I spend time with each one of them alone - without their siblings. Just us together.Now that Kevin is gone mid-week I've been trying to plan spec...

Summer nights

I won't lie, this week has sucked. We've had some behavior issues with a certain 6 year old and I am just finished dealing with it. I've tried everything and it comes down to one thing. She just doesn't care. She feels like she is entitled to do, say...

Po-Po

The girls were having a playdate yesterday with a friend.. Callum and Clara were napping, and the house was relatively quiet. The girls were playing "house" and I hear Mairead say something about 9-1-1. I didn't think anything of it really.Then the p...

Discipline

I hate discipline. It always attracts some sort of drama. Or yelling. Or crying. Or whining. Or any unwanted behavior. From not just me, but the kids, too ;)So, the other day, I was playing with Callum in another room, and I hear the girls egging Cla...

Busy...Busy...BUSY!

Life is busy here in the Ferrie house...but you knew that. The last week has been crazy around here! We've been keeping busy by having fun. We kicked off our weekend Thursday night with an impromptu evening with our neighbors. It started off with the...

Running away...

Today was one of those days. And you know it is going to be one of those days when you start threatening and putting kids in their rooms in the first 15 minutes of the day.Every other minute, it was something else.Clara was pushing Mairead.Mairead wa...

The little swimmer that...didn't.

They say every child is different.And I'd have to agree. While Mairead and Lilah differ in so many ways, they both were the same about one thing. Swim school. They loved it pretty much from the beginning. Loved being in a class without mommy and...
