daily two cents


October 3, 2013

In efforts to free up some space and bring in some extra ca$h, I’ve been purging some of our baby stuff. In many ways I’m happy to be rounding this corner and grateful to be passed the turbulence of having a newborn. In many ways I’m also really sad. I looked at the swing that I am attempting to sell […]

Thanks to some very brave grandparents in less than one month Adam and I will leave our suburban paradise. We will spend four days in an urban oasis far from the land of rugrats. Mom and Dad are heading out of dodge on an adult only excursion!!!!! When the concept was first suggested I immediately shot it down. How could […]

I had a friend who’s house growing up was booming! Booming in the sense that people were coming and going, people were shouting, phones were ringing. It was an exceptionally lively house full of boatloads of kids and constant action. It was a household that defined family to me. My friend liked to escape her booming household to the tranquil […]

Mom’s Out of Commission

September 25, 2013

Through the course of my life I’ve been cursed with debilitating migraines. At one point, I had to be hospitalized for an entire week because I had an eight week long migraine! I mean, serious stuff with this migraine business. Since I’ve been in the baby making phase of my life, I have only had a few minor tales to […]

Third Child Syndrome (Part 2)

September 24, 2013

Noah is behind. Not like in that engage social services way. More like the third child sort of way. And so the saga continues… He spent the first seven months of his life on my hip. He’s carted from preschool to kindergarten, from ballet to soccer. If there’s a moment when he is not in his car seat or on […]

I’m Haunted

September 19, 2013

Why is it that bad things happen to good people? That thought haunts my mind. That thought makes me hold on tighter to my kids before they leave my grasp (as if I can protect in my arms). That sentiment makes me beg everyone to drive safely (as if the words alone will keep them safe). Every time I hear […]

I’m Failing…literally

September 17, 2013

Nobody is going to be shocked when I say that I’m overwhelmed. I’m overwhelmed by having three kids. I’m overwhelmed by having an absentee husband. I’m overwhelmed by the amount of laundry I must do in a given week. I’m overwhelmed by the amount of groceries I must buy weekly. The list goes on and on and on. What is […]

Over the weekend, our original foursome had an outing. Besides the fact that traveling without a baby is traveling so much lighter, it was special in a way I had forgotten. There is absolutely no way I don’t want this baby in my family. He is the guy that makes my heart feel complete. He is the smile that wakes […]

In a far away, distant world I was a pharmaceutical rep. A working parent’s life is far from slow paced, but the job itself at times could be. Wait an hour to see a doc, thirty minutes until a lunch starts, etc. Now nothing about my life is slow paced. I’m either running late to something or trying to squeeze […]

Adventures in Babysitting

September 11, 2013

Recently we’ve been making it a point to go out as adults on Saturday nights. It’s not that I haven’t enjoyed our Saturday night movie nights or family get togethers with people in similar stations. To dust off my “nicer” clothes (you know anything WITHOUT a spit-stain or an elastic band), squeeze my feet into uncomfortably tall shoes and have […]
