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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Over Scheduled?!?!

July 30, 2014

As we are on the brink of August, thoughts and energy are being focused on plans for the fall. Emails are filling my inbox with reminders to register for a variety of activities. Basketball, ballet, soccer, gymnastics…oh my! I believe in a world where children’s schedules should be left open for creative play, for riding bikes until dusk, for play [...]

Two vs Three (the continual saga)

July 28, 2014

Fact: it’s easier to take care of two kids. Since my boys are on the most amazing baseball trip of a lifetime, I have been holding down the fort with my other two. The two I’ve been caring for are the least independent, most difficult together kids. Even so, balancing two kids is so much easier. I always wanted three [...]

The Illusion of Relaxation

July 23, 2014

Explain to me how twenty minutes back home could undo all the hard work I put into getting to a point of relaxation (and I mean HARD work). It’s not easy to de-stress. It’s not easy to get to a point where life can move at a moderate speed, where your only responsibility is to think about yourself and hear [...]

Calm?

July 16, 2014

While Noah was getting his second haircut, he was screaming bloody murder. One of the ladies exclaimed that he must not be my first because I was so calm!!!! You talking to me??? Calm??? Hmmmm Lady, I’ve decided to tell you about somethings I’m not calm about. I am not calm when my six year old, who should have aged [...]

Naps – friend or foe?

July 14, 2014

I have a love/hate relationship with naps. For as many reasons as I love them, almost every single one of those same reasons I hate. I am a strong believer that good sleep breeds good sleep. If Noah gets a good, solid nap, chances are that he’ll be sleepier for bedtime and have a better nights sleep. I don’t know [...]
