Patience is a virtue…that I don’t have

April 26, 2017

It’s like riding a bike…unless you don’t actually know how to in which case it’s more like advanced geometry or something equally as hard. I spent the better part of…toooooo long, trying to get Gabby (my almost 7 year old) to ride a 2 wheeler. After many deep breaths, partially due to the fact that it’s easy to get winded […]

Light Up Your Life

June 21, 2016

I recently had the chance to review a product. A candle. What’s so special about a candle? I certainly wasn’t going to say no at the chance of potentially liking a product but I pondered how I was going to evaluate a candle when I wasn’t passionate about candles either way. It’s not that I don’t LIKE candles. Rather, I […]

Zoodle-rific!

August 22, 2016

I have totally jumped on the bandwagon for any traditional carbohydrate in vegetable form!!! It started with spaghetti squash, transitioned to cauliflower and now I’m in the world of zucchini!!!! Thanks to the invention of Pinterest, I can easily research types of foods that interest me. I landed on this one… I’m usually opposed to anything cream-ish. I automatically think […]

Dear Mom of Multiple Young Children,

April 3, 2017

It gets easier. Too often you run into wise mothers with older (possibly grown) children that tell you to enjoy it because it goes so fast…too fast. Instead you are left feeling even worse. So on top of the juggling you are doing to keep everything going, on top of the run down feeling you constantly have, and on top […]

Ageless

January 10, 2017

At the gym daycare I was complaining about some Facebook “chain letter” when the 18 year old explained that her mom is always complaining about similar things. She compared me to her middle aged mother. And then I realized that being middle aged is only a term based on how long you actually live. By all intensive purposes, I could […]

Dear Noah

December 20, 2016

Happy 4th birthday to my superhero loving, dinosaur devotee, car crusading little man. Your sweet, tender nature is a pleasure. Your fear of all things is hysterical and your two handed hugs are heart warming. It may seem at times that there is little room for you in this chaotic family. As the years have gone by, you have carved […]

Drew 2.0

November 30, 2016

Since my first born came into the world after 32 hours of labor, he has been a difficult child. Ironic as it may seem for a child that didn’t want to leave the womb, he has always been resistant. I suggest a trip to the zoo, and he screams that he doesn’t like the zoo. He has spent the better […]

Overload

September 17, 2016

“Are you still blogging?” Yikes, has it really been THAT long??? Since the minute I quit my job, over five years ago, I have been sweating what the next chapter would look like. I knew that my retirement from that field didn’t mean that I’d spend the rest of my life popping bonbons and lounging. I wasn’t sure what life […]

Suitable Programming

August 3, 2016

Back in the day when I was idealistic about being a parent (probably some time BEFORE I actually was one), I assumed that I would carefully screen every program my children were exposed to. I would carefully make sure there was no inappropriate subject matter. I would make sure that any topics that might have some level of controversy were […]

Failing Out

July 20, 2016

I was never a school person. In my youth, I wasn’t a good test taker. I would always study longer than most and get a worse grade then most. It’s not a lack of intelligence. Clearly you can tell from my blogs how brilliant I am ;). It’s just that some people excel at reading a textbook and taking a […]

My Inner Superhero

July 13, 2016

It’s possible that I’ve never been busier in my life. I really have no idea if I’m coming or going most days. Between the chaos that is naturally my kids’ lives coupled with my new career, my head is constantly “spinning” and I feel like I’m neglecting something…all the time. In April, I started studying to become an indoor cycling […]

Dear Gabby

June 26, 2016

Six years ago you came into this world in a blink of an eye. Literally…you were born twenty minutes after I ARRIVED at the hospital. That feistiness has carried through these last six years. And although life isn’t always easy, I can very easily slip back into that day you came into this world and changed me forever. You are […]
