Less Baby More Toddler

September 16, 2014

The baby is slipping away. Every day there is a little less baby in the baby than the day before. And each day there’s a little more crazy kid in it’s place. I shouldn’t complain because I was able to get more baby out of him than the other two. His delayed walking skills kept him in that baby zone [...]

I got style!!!

June 18, 2014

I was recently given the opportunity to participate in the What’s Your Summer Style? promotion from Ross Dress for Less. I, of course, wanted to know my summer style…I have got to find some style other than shorts and tank which seems to be my everyday apparel. So I took the test here. It told me that a maxi skirt [...]

Does It Get Better? By Lisa Seidenberg

May 5, 2014

As I approach the eve of my son turning 6 months tomorrow I’m filled with a sense of awe and pride by how far we’ve come. It amazes me that it’s been 6 months since I heard his piercing wail for the first time while grinning ear to ear at my husband. Eyes locked in acknowledgement that our lives would [...]

The Ambiguous Side Dish

January 21, 2014

When attending a social gathering and one says “bring a side dish,” what does that really mean? A) Throw some pasta in a bowl and call it a side dish? B) Research an elaborate, meal alternative to impress the pants off of everyone attending? C) Pickup some slaw from Whole Foods or Sunset and pay WAY too much. D) Go [...]

My Cries

September 8, 2014

You know that expression, “falls on deaf ears?” Everything I say “falls on deaf ears.” I’ve developed a threshold of three – I can say something three times before I start to get aggravated. There’s literally nothing in the world I can say once and get results. What’s up with that? “We’re going to a birthday party at Wrigley Field. [...]

Progress Report

September 2, 2014

Most jobs or schools give you an evaluation or progress report. They provide some document where your abilities are assessed. Over three years ago I quit my job to take on the full time role of mommy. Neither Adam nor the kids have reviewed my performance but I have a feeling that if they did, I’d be scored pretty badly. [...]

THE Year (Part 2)

August 29, 2014

“I didn’t have fun at school. I felt left out.” WHAT?!? I’m running up to school and facilitating play at recess. I’m securing placement at the lunch table. Heads are going to roll unless my baby feels safe, secure and happy. Around which time I’ll be blogging that I need better discipline tactics because a happy Drew is usually an [...]

Scheduling

August 26, 2014

There are some days where I look at the tasks ahead of me and think, “I can do this!” Today is not one of those days. We are at the place in between here and there. Something’s are starting up – yay school! But something’s aren’t. Trying to get all my ducks in a row is causing my head to [...]

STRIKE!!!

August 25, 2014

You know those people who march outside of hotels, construction sites, restaurants, etc. with their large signs and the huge blow up rats? I want my sign, I want my blow up rat, I want to go on strike. I need the Union of Mommies to negotiate a better contract. I’m getting the short end of the stick. I get [...]

Minivans = Parenthood?

August 19, 2014

Why don’t minivans come with a bank teller/Walgreens style box system where one could pass a much desired snack (or equally as necessary item) to the back row?!? I heard new minivans come with a speaker system where back row can hear better. I can promise the back row can hear my screams and it’s quite possible that a speaker [...]

THE Year

August 15, 2014

This is THE year. This is the really defining point where Drew shows if he is just an immature, young boy who’s gonna follow mainstream schooling or not. I have always said that first grade is going to be the tell all. This is the first year of full day school. Sure, he did enrichment in the past to extend [...]

Anxiety In a Different Shape

August 13, 2014

Anxiety manifests in many different ways. Stomach aches, headaches, nervous cleaning – I totally understand all of that. What I don’t understand is psycho craziness as a sign of anxiety. Everyone knows that scene with the child wrapped around your leg because they are nervous and shy. When a child acts like a wound up crazy person, most people think [...]

Savor It

August 6, 2014

You know how the first bite of something delicious is so good and you tell yourself that you are going to try to savor each and every bite. Then sometime right before the last bite, you realize that you got caught up in eating it and didn’t truly pay attention to each and every bite and now all you have [...]

PARTY!!!

August 4, 2014

Over the weekend I pretended that I was in my mid-twenties and spent an evening crammed in with (what felt like) thousands of people drinking watered down drinks while the music was WAY too loud. When did I become an old lady?!?! I distinctly remember thinking that I would never stop liking the bar scene. The dim lighting, the smell [...]
