i started writing this long post i wanted to share but now it has gotten so late and all my kids are sleeping which means IF I DON’T GO TO SLEEP RIGHT NOW i’m going to hate myself in the morning for not sleeping while all three kids were sleeping. it’s been a battle my entire life to wake up in the morning and it hasn’t gotten any easier over the years, in fact i think it’s only gotten harder. it might be partly my fault because i find myself most productive late into the night so that’s when i enjoy working and cleaning and spending time getting things done. but it’s not new news that i’m a crankier mom and overall human being when i don’t sleep, so i’m trying to do something about it. the post will have to wait to be finished tomorrow.

in the meantime, here are a couple of photos from the park from the other day. we were at a doctors appointment and after too many hours in a confined indoor space, we all needed to let some energy out and run free and play!  i loved these photos josh took of the littles ones and me playing together…

ps. pitch perfect 2 comes out tomorrow (!!!!!) and yes i already have my ticket! also you can watch the first episode of jim gaffigan’s new show that comes out in july on his website right now! i about died when i saw it was available! a perk of stalking the show on twitter i guess. it’s worth losing 20 minutes of sleep over. ;)

have a wonderful night and happy friday, everybody!

    When evening comes I’m sooooo tired….

    I know what you mean, i’m most productive at late night, and i felt guilty about it for too long until one day i read a scientific article about “night owls ” and “early birds”, i’m definitely an owl and it’s completely normal, but i guess with kids it has to be hard!

    So cute you all, as usual. We adore you over here! Have a great weekend!!

  4. Oh my gosh! These photos are so adorable! It’s photos like this that make me want to be a mum so much haha! Also, I’m loving your shorter hair – I have no idea when that happened (probably ages ago haha), but it looks lovely! It’s making me want to chop mine :)

    I love Samson’s Tee!!!

  6. These pictures are so sweet and fun! Now I’m curious for that long post you talked about! Can’t wait to read it :)

    Lovely park photos! My sons are quite the opposite, they prefer indoors (shopping malls, museum, airport etc) than the outdoors. I guess it’s because the weather in my city is either really too hot or raining!

  8. Saskia

    Hey :)
    your new hairstyle looks great! Fits you even better than the last one I think :)

    Best wishes from Germany,

  9. I think I’m a morning and night person. I’m definitely not an afternoon person.
    That’s the only way I can explain it.

    you guys are so cute! Making me want to go to the park now.

  10. Samson’s face in that last photo kills me! SUCH a darling boy. What a sweet family post :)

  11. Julia

    I think that you and your little New York babies are the cutest thing ever :) I’m the exact same, I get the most done after it gets dark outside. Luckily I am 18 and working as an Au Pair meaning I *could* sleep until 4PM each day (which I don’t), but I can live on the 1AM-9:30AM sleep schedule :)


  12. Tess

    Please could you tell me where your shoes are from – they’re great!

  13. Dana

    This are wonderful Photos.

  14. Seriously I don’t think I’ve seen anything cuter than those tiny Birkenstocks!!

  15. Les photos sont vraiment magnifiques ! félicitations ! ;-)

  16. melissa

    I know you posted about this before but I was unable to find it on the site: where are you name rings from? I would love to get one!

  17. Melissa

    These pictures came out soo good! That first picture of you and Conrad with Eleanor and Samson playing in the background is such a great shot.

    Loving the short hairstyle by the way!

  18. Sinead

    Ahhh Samson’s t-shirt is so adorable! He has the happiest little face :-)

    I’m a night owl as well! I’ve been forcing myself to get up when my husband leaves for work, hoping I’ll also be tired sooner and go to bed at a reasonable hour.

    I love your top, by the way! Have a great weekend!

  20. Sonya

    I’m more of a morning person…but not every morning!

  21. Pam

    I swear your kids are the CUTEST I have ever seen! Loved to read about about your day once again, thanks for sharing :) xo


  22. that little i heart nyc shirt is to die for! xo

  23. Li-Sha

    Haha! Every night after I put my 3 month old to bed I always think “I need to go to sleep RIGHT NOW or I’ll hate everything tomorrow” and then I stay up an extra hour or more because, alone time, right? And then in the morning I hate myself. I used to be an early bird, but I guess that was before I was getting sleep in 4-3-2 hour increments ;-)

  24. I love E’s little birks! All your kid’s clothes are way to cute!

  25. All of your outfits are super cute – so glad that he got these priceless photos, these would be fun to frame!

    Warm Regards,

  26. Meryl

    Yes, get your sleep!! It is so important! I’m about to go get mine. :)

  27. Kelsey

    So glad to know that I’m not the only mom who works late into the night and regrets it the next morning.

    Also, is that a Let’s Playground mat I see??

  28. ariana

  31. Creative people find their flare at night… it’s a blessing and a course. I get all my ideas when my head hits the pillow. Good luck for tomorrow morning, hopefully you just SPRING out of bed :)

    I love your new haircut. Looks perfect for summer.

  34. kellie

    i just have to say how much I love your hair! It always looks perfect (which I can barely do without having any kids, and yet you have 3!!) How do you style it to get the waves (if you don’t mind me asking)?

  35. sarah

    such beautiful pictures! central park is just unbelievable, such a gift to the city and no place like it (and so, so big!)! we are anxiously waiting for the row boats to open back up!
    i feel my most zen late at night after my kids are asleep but i always struggle in the mornings, so hard!

  36. Melanie Dewitt
