Attitude Adjustment

May 20, 2015

This might come as a surprise to some of you readers but I don’t always have the most positive attitude where my kids are concerned. It’s not that I’m negative per se, but I don’t always stop and smell the roses. And I will without a doubt be crying about that in years, or blogs, to come. Lately, however, I […]

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 […]

Dance Mom

May 11, 2015

I wanted a daughter for one reason – to relive my dance life. Ok not exactly but it is a major bonus. The best part of it all is that I don’t actually feel like I’m influencing her to like dance – she naturally seems inclined to it! I know most little girls dance at some point in their life. […]

Hard Knocks Life

May 5, 2015

I am never going to be the preferred parent, I’m working on coming to terms with it. I think I’ve made it to the top five, that’s not too bad right?!? From the moment I started dropping Drew off at daycare as an infant, he scooted off. I used to say that I’d like him to feel some sadness in […]

Star of the Show

April 28, 2015

As an only child and a girl, sports were never a part of my vocabulary. There wasn’t much diversity to extra curricular activities either – dance, dance and more dance. You can imagine how happy I was when Gabby took to dance similarly to me. After years of freezing her tushee off at Drew’s soccer games, I decided to offer […]

Hysteria

April 21, 2015

For 36 hours this past weekend, my baby decided to give up walking. You know that pathetic paw up look that dogs do when they have injured their paw…that was what Noah was doing. It was heart breaking for a normal mother to watch… I can’t seem to just roll with the punches and take things for what they are. […]

The Boss

April 14, 2015

Yesterday I spent the day with an unrecognizable child. This child had 3 temper tantrums about non-sensible things like getting into a diaper, being fascined into a car seat and holding hands in a parking lot. There were 3 shakedowns where this same child either pushed, grabbed or hit causing another child to cry.  I went out of town for […]

Forever Enemies?

April 6, 2015

Gabby’s favorite place to put her hands is around Noah’s neck. At times, she’s my sweetest, easiest child. At other times (mainly when it comes to Noah) she’s the most unreasonable. Just before Noah was born, a close friend had a baby. Gabby wanted that baby so badly. I was so excited to see how enthusiastic she was for their […]

Star in the Making

March 27, 2015

Years ago I watched an Olympian accredit her success to her father encouraging her. I remember thinking how I couldn’t imagine ever encouraging my child to do something that would be very difficult to succeed. This past week was “observation” week at the place where Gabby does the majority of her extra-curricular activities. I sat through ballet and jazz, her […]

Fashion Emergency

March 17, 2015

Everyone seems to accept…damn near embrace, the fact that teenagers beat to their own drum and dress however they want. What people don’t discuss nearly enough is that toddlers – children who are practically done being toddlers and should wear what their mothers tell them, do the same thing. Who are these kids who are in their adorable outfits complete […]

Careful what you wish for…

March 10, 2015

When people would ask me how I felt about my oldest going to kindergarten, I would laugh…no big deal!  For one, his preschool day was longer than his half day kindergarten class.  Secondly, I was so accustomed to running him to his myriad of activities to keep him busy that my life was going to be pretty darn similar. When […]
