We have arrived, and it is going to be a great week. We love coming here (it's a family place) and the vibe is just what we all need right now...a nice healthy dose of toes-in-the-sand fun. In fact, barely five minutes after we got out of the car, Big Brother was in his suit … Continue reading Bouchers do the beach!
This happens to me sometimes. Much less frequently these days, but still...I have found myself having difficulty falling asleep the past few days, especially tonight. Perhaps it's time to get my thyroid levels looked at. Perhaps I'm just a chronic over-thinker. In any case, I was lying in bed with my boys on either side … Continue reading Insomnia?

No, the Bouchers are not doing Disney just yet - the boys are still too young to properly enjoy it (you can look forward to a post or three when we do finally get ourselves there). But if you love Disney and are planning a visit to the magic kingdom, I have some tips … Continue reading Essential oils for Disney trips
I'm not big on "New Year's Resolutions". I do love goal-setting, and for me it's a much more practical way to view the upcoming year. I enjoy making lists (which is a coping mechanism because I tend to forget things) and writing down my goals, because it helps to keep myself accountable and motivated. So … Continue reading Healthy New Year!
December is a pretty busy month for many people, the Bouchers included. We have multiple family birthdays (one of us, and several relatives) and Christmas (and all of the associated preparations). I tend to knit like a fiend during the fall and December, and since going gluten-free, I have developed the habit of testing recipes … Continue reading What I’ve Been Up To
I've been taking a bit of a break. I know, I just got started, but I'm finding this to be such a busy season of family life that I needed to balance better. I was having trouble making time for blogging that wasn't taking away from either time with my children, time with my husband, … Continue reading Finding balance
Oh lovely Autumn! Crisp air, hot cider, pumpkins. My favorite season. I had to write a haiku to show my joy for, and love of the season we have just entered. I have gotten two knitting projects under my belt and am about to launch into two more. Hooray! We have had a busy past … Continue reading Autumn is here!
This year is the 100th anniversary of the Big E. This is an agricultural fair celebrating the New England states. It happens on weekends during September, and features a variety of food, vendors of an assortment of products, a showcase of animals, contests, some rides and amusements, horse shows and competitions, and the Avenue of the … Continue reading Eastern States Exposition
For whatever reason, Little Brother has gone from being a great sleeper to the kind of baby who reminds you somewhat of a drunken friend who is staggering around while trying to assure you they're "totally fine". If I didn't have another child to care for, this would be quite amusing - he crawls around … Continue reading Sleepy baby
