daily two cents


February 6, 2014

There must be something about my cool, calm and collected demeanor that Adam must feel I have things under control or something. Not! The fact that he comes home to a disheveled, stressed, frantic wife who throws her children at him doesn’t seem to raise any flags. Otherwise he would not even consider leaving this state yet again (that would […]

Gripes Galore!

February 5, 2014

I have many gripes. There are many things in our day to day life that cause me to bitch and moan. I think the one to take the cake, win the prize and be the worst thing about living with these scoundrels would be trying to get out of the door. No Gabby, it is not appropriate to go out […]

Three Year Old Devil

February 4, 2014

The first time around I thought it was all me. If I weren’t a working mom, if I were less intense, if I didn’t yell so much…yadda yadda. Well this is no longer my first time at the rodeo and now I know who is completely responsible… I have learned one thing from my experience of parenthood (hopefully I’ve learned […]

The Evolution of Noah

February 3, 2014

At this point I plan that Drew needs to have a friend or child to engage with. I expect that Gabby wants someone to play with too. What I do not plan is Noah needing that same level of interaction. I had Drew after a close friend had her baby. We would get our babies together for an intense play […]

Bring on the “Yeses”

January 30, 2014

Recently I have found myself caught in a world of “don’t,” “stop,” “no!” Mostly with my three year old terror, but it’s a natural part of my vocabulary. Now “Johnny Social Worker,” no need to comment on how horrible it is to communicate with your children this way. I get it, that’s why I’m blogging. You, my wonderful readers, are […]

When the time comes that all three kiddos are tucked into their beds, I can’t help but feel a giant sigh of relief. Knowing that we have survived another day, everyone relatively unscathed (that is if you don’t count Noah’s tumble down a flight of stairs and the demise of a very admired Bulls sweatshirt – perspective!!!), it is a […]

Today was one of those days that test you as a parent. The kind of day where an hour at the gym most definitely cannot sustain you. The kind of day where your five minute shower is not the oasis that keeps you going. The kind of day where gouging out your eyes while stomping on the heart that was […]

The Saga of Snuggles

January 20, 2014

Snuggles, the germ infested, stuffed classroom mascot was almost a goner. After putting a price on his safely recovered head, he was recovered before it was necessary to make the kindergarten teacher aware of his absence. Instead of taking accountability, I blame two groups… 1) The parents before me that have been in possession of this primate. Instead of including […]

When Friday finally rolls around, I am never holding on tightly to the previous week. I am most certainly not pushing away the weekend. And this week is absolutely no exception to that. I have spent this week sick as a dog. I long for the days of calling in sick and sending my children to their daycare providers. If […]

Ode to the baby who never gets his naps

January 15, 2014

Why oh why is my baby always crabby??? It couldn’t be because his morning nap was stifled from preschool pickup?!?! It couldn’t be because his afternoon nap lasted a total of five minutes in the car ride over to kindergarten!!?? Why, please tell me, could such a beautiful, happy baby boy become a tyrant around 6pm?!?! The saga of the […]
