The art of being left out

October 30, 2014

Being included, or not as the case may be, is a timeless issue. My grandma has vocalized her frustration from not being a part of certain social gatherings. Certainly I deal with it in regards to my children as well. What is the appropriate way of handling feelings of being left out? Everyone should always be included. Although that ideally [...]

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 Nemesis – the iPad

October 21, 2014

Do I need to explain the excitement Drew went through when school GAVE him an iPad? It’s certainly not because he hasn’t been exposed to the iPad. He pretty much already has his own at home. And it’s also not because he has a full access pass to do whatever he wants on the iPad (the school sets its restrictions [...]

Chapter 3 of Juvenile Delinquency

October 16, 2014

I’m exhausted. And not in that stayed up too late watching trashy tv sorta way, although true. I’m exhausted from dealing with aggressive toddlers. I’m tired of trying to teach someone that barely understands English to be appropriate. I need a MAJOR nap from this chapter. Drew was an insanely aggressive toddler. Maybe it was partially because he was my [...]

I am not going to shut the eff up!!!

October 14, 2014

I’ve caught this blog circulating Facebook and it erkkkks me big time. The underlying theme is how very lucky those of us who get to stay home with our kids really are. Who can argue that? The part that really infuriates me is that anyone, let alone a fellow SAHM, would make us seem like whiney, ungrateful people! There is [...]

Food – the enemy

October 8, 2014

I’ve been spoiled. My first born child is the best eater. As a baby, he devoured broccoli. His favorite treats being tomatoes. My biggest concern nutritionally with him has always been how I will be able to sustain my food budget once he’s in high school since he is such an eater!!! Gabby, on the other hand, has always eaten [...]

Is there a G-d????

October 2, 2014

As we were walking into Temple for the Jewish New Year, Drew casually mentioned that he didn’t believe in G-d. Adam and I instantly looked at each other and said, “it’s time for Sunday School.” My religious beliefs have less to do with what the Bible does/does not say. Rather, I believe in perpetuating the traditions that my family has [...]

Lonely Girl

September 30, 2014

After all these months with Adam traveling pretty consistently, one would think that I’d get used to it. One would be wrong. The worst part of him traveling has to be the days before. The anticipation of him leaving is enough to do me in. It seems like the kids are extra hard in the days prior to his departure [...]

My Little Bestie

September 24, 2014

Since the baby was born, Gabby has turned into a massive handful. It might be attributed to her age, her station in our family or the fact that she feels that like she lost her Mommy with the arrival of the baby (21 months ago!!). Whatever it is, she’s generally the one who gives me the hardest time on a [...]

Even Duracell bunnies get tired

September 18, 2014

Long days are nothing new for my eldest. That child has frequently been compared to the Duracell bunny. He keeps going and going… From the point this child gave up his nap at the tender age of three, he fell asleep during the day (maybe) two times. He has never been one of those kids who fell asleep in transit [...]

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. [...]
