Figuring it out one day at a time.

Jiggle Jam KC: The largest family festival in the country.

1 Comment


This was our first year going to Jiggle Jam and I was totally psyched about this event.

But once I got there I realized this would be a really fun thing to do if I had about four more hands


A babysitter for little Bo.

There were bubble tents, craft tents, dance tents, face painting stations, and of course, music.

This would have been a blast, and it was a lot of fun, but I can’t do crafts with a little toddler while an infant is strapped to my chest, we are lugging around a stroller, and Linc is being his usual, have no fear I will totally run away from you in a crowd, self.

And can you imagine trying to use a port-a-potty?  How would that even work?  Enter with the baby strapped to my belly and a toddler attached to my hand, and risk leaving the stroller with all of our stuff outside?  Not to mention trying to actually go to the restroom while trying to keep the toddlers hands off of everything disgusting in the port-a-potty.  And what would I do with the baby, leave him strapped to my chest?  This is the stuff nightmares are made of, I didn’t even attempt it.  I decided at the point during the day when I had to use the restroom, we would be leaving.  Seems reasonable to me.

Despite my poor planning and not finding a babysitter for the wee one so that Linc and I could truly go all out and enjoy the festivities, we did have fun.  We will definitely be doing the Jiggle Jam again.


Bubble tent was a fan favorite.






The BIG fair-sized lemonade was a huge hit.  And only half of it ended up on his shirt.  Success!




Bo lounging in the grass.


The most awful picture of Linc ever.  I will be keeping this one to show his first girlfriend.  Graduation. Wedding.  So many possibilities.


Hanging out, dancing to the tunes.

  1. Oh my goodness – these pictures are wonderful and the account of the porta potty option was hysterical!!! Hopefully next year you’ll have a Gramdma babysitter to go with you! You certainly have two beautiful boys – wow!
