He may not be walking yet but we have most definitely entered the world of TROUBLE!!! Nothing is baby proofed enough for our trouble maker. Every staircase is inviting, every outlet looks lickable and every ledge is climbable. If I thought my life was relaxed and calm before, it’s taken on a WHOLE other level of NOT relaxed and NOT […]

Would it kill the northwest suburbs to get on the same page with spring break?! You mean to tell me that the difference of a week changes the district plans in a colossal way??? I think not. This week is Gabby’s preschool spring break and next week is Drew’s kindergarten spring break. I guess that’ll teach me not to send […]

Chop Liver

March 24, 2014

It’s an age old story – Dad commutes to California during the week, Dad is the children’s hero upon return. And you know what?! I’m getting pretty sick of it! I am their slave during the week. Literally slave. Definition of slave is a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them or to […]

Living with Three (the saga continues)

March 21, 2014

I by no means have my act together. I’d venture to say that I have my act together more than I previously have. An old sage (actually my friend who has three kids older than mine) told me that I was in the trenches and in two years I would get my life (sorta) back. I think I’m halfway there. […]

Third Child Issues!!!

March 18, 2014

Noah is 15 months on Thursday and completely and totally not walking. Until about a week ago I would say that he wasn’t even close to walking but the last week he’s made some real “strides” 😉 Everyone I talk to is quick to remind me that with walking comes running. Am I sure that I want him to be […]

Jerks, I tell you!!!

March 13, 2014

Sometimes my kids can be real jerks. Not just to me, but to other people. I expect them to be jerky towards me but I don’t expect them to be jerky towards nice people walking by, family members that love them or acquaintances that I’d like them to be nice to. It’s not like I’m expecting them to be politicians […]

Minus Four

March 11, 2014

This week Drew received a worksheet that showed he scored minus four on his ability to assess sight words. Some parents may have shredded the sheet and not looked back. Other parents might have sat him down and studied with him. Not I. Not this Supermom. I taped up that sheet on our garage door (where I tape up sight […]

We spent what felt like a lifetime listening to Elmo serenade Drew. The minute we were able to transition out of that stage, we didn’t look back. We looked high and low for a minivan WITHOUT a dvd player, we cringed at the mere mention of any type of audio (or visual for that matter). Rather, we jammed out to […]

The Twilight Zone

March 7, 2014

I was recently contacted that my middle school (grades 3-5) is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary, my class being the first. How did I get to be THIS old? Somehow when I was “trapped” in my adolescence, I thought that I was going to be stuck on the cusp of my world starting forever. And somewhere in those 25 years my […]

I have had a love/hate relationship with technology when it has come to my kids. I love it when it “babysits ” my kids at 6am allowing for some extra snooze. I hate it when my son has his nose buried so deep in the iPad that it takes me several days to dig him out. Upon my first tour […]
