rachfrakes 7 years, 9 moves, 5 states, 2 degrees, 2 babies, 1 surgery, 1 car totaled, 5 trips to the ER, half a dozen calls to poison control, 21 birthday cakes, innumerable diaper changes and good morning kisses. Midnight fevers and flus, job changes and bed rest.

rachfrakes "Mom, last night there was that monster under my bed and he ate all my black cereal all gone! All gone! Mom, you think Jesus has a monster under His bed? (Dramatic sigh) I guess I'll just have a pancake." #lukechats 6d

rachfrakes I pushed her nap back two hours this week and she's crashin' hard. (She used to go down around 10:30 and have a 5 hr power nap...we'll see how this goes!) 7d
  •   littleeweandme Seriously? A 5 hour nap? Hasn't that girl been a sleeper from day 1? That is amazing. 7d
  •   rachfrakes @littleeweandme she has. Girlfriend loves her sleep. It's refreshing after Luke! Sometimes though, I think she quietly relaxes for a portion of her nap and maybe doesn't sleep the whole time but doesn't call out for me...she is an introvert and I think she craves the recharging/alone time. It's hard to tell since she is so quiet in there. 7d
  •   withlovemamabear Goodness I thought Greyson's 2.5 was good, where do I sign up haha 7d
  •   kimicall I'm thrilled if I can get an hour out of Nora. 7d
  •   preethib7 @rachfrakes @littleeweandme haha, that is totally kina!! She'll be 3 in a few weeks and she still regularly takes 3.5 hour naps (longer if it's been a long day/late night). I thought she always went asleep right away at nap and night because she's always silent as a mouse but I happened to peek in there once or twice and she was just lying there quietly looking around. #introvertsunite 7d
  •   shannieclaire I love those books 7d

rachfrakes Went camping with batman this weekend. He took me to his secret fort and told me I was his best friend, "just only when daddy's not here". 3w

rachfrakes Just over a week until these scraped knees walk themselves back to school, so we're filling every moment we have left with summer. 3w
  •   shopolivethethings How do you keep his shirt from fading?? Axels is so light at this point. 3w
  •   clairejharper Following for ideas on keeping clothes from fading! 3w
  •   rachfrakes @shopolivethethings I have no idea girl. He wears it about once a week so it definitely gets use! I use Purex laundry soap (I'm allergic to anything else!) and add downy unstoppables + one scoop of oxyclean to all their clothes, then tumble dry... I don't know if that does anything or if it's luck. Sorry that isn't much help! @clairejharper 3w
  •   shopolivethethings I use the free and clear from Costco for the kids clothes (I have like a lifetime supply of cheap laundry soap that we got with out water softener! Olivia is allergic to it so the free and clear is just for her until we finally use that stuff up!) but I might have to try Purex when Olivia's soap runs out!! 3w
  •   rachfrakes @shopolivethethings sweet deal! yeah give it a try! I can't do tide or anything so I just always use Purex 3w

rachfrakes Another summer, another crack at the neighbor boy through the fence #peepingelsie 1mon
  •   meredithtutt Her hair! And tutu! And toes! (And Look at that green grass! Jealous, so tired of the drought) 1mon
  •   rachfrakes @meredithtutt yes the drought! We are only allowed to water 3x a week so ca can have all our water. 1mon
  •   meredithtutt Thanks for sharing! We get to water 2x a week but the grass is still sad 1mon
  •   rachfrakes We had 45 straight days of rain over the spring, so that definitely helped. That's why it feels so crazy that we have watering restrictions! I felt like we practically drowned over here so I guess we have plenty to share!! 1mon
  •   kimberly.thomas83 Welp, Elsie's hair has passed up Olivia's 1mon
