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 […]

The Art of Exercise

June 15, 2016

For anyone who thought that being an exercise teacher was just coming into a studio, cheering students on and playing cool music – I’m here to tell you that is not the case. The hours of studying, coupled with planning routines, obtaining the perfect playlist and managing the class appropriately is more than anyone (until you do it yourself) would […]

Dear Drew

June 12, 2016

This may have not been your biggest year when it came to reading, writing and arithmetic but it was by far your biggest year when it came to maturity and compassion. You finally understood the role you have in our family and the power in your leadership role. That doesn’t mean you don’t take the chance to sock your sister […]

My Babies

June 10, 2016

As irony would have it, I spent my children’s last days in second grade and kindergarten hanging out with my friend’s 11 month old. After I bid farewell to my children, I was handed a bag full of diapers (in the midst of potty training my youngest), bottles and formula (after I gleefully celebrated packing my last lunch of the […]

Competition Gone Wrong

May 23, 2016

Sports is a language that I don’t speak. Goals with baseball, home runs in basketball, innings, quarters – I don’t understand any of it. When my eldest came out of my body, he came out a sports guru. At the age of 1, he sat through a baseball game eyes wide and in love. Since then, his passion has only […]

How do we teach our children how scary the world can be? How do we teach them to be cautious but not scared of everything? How do we enlighten them to the yucky things out there without giving them nightmares? Last week my daughter was outside on the playground with a friend while her class went back into the building. […]

The Next Chapter

May 19, 2016

In another life not that long ago, I had a great job. I loved that job. I was on a path. That path was going in only one direction – up. I worked hard in high school to get into a good college. I busted my butt in college to do well. I applied to every job under the sun […]

Tragedy Close to Home

May 10, 2016

Recently there was a woman who was killed driving home with her family from a close vacation spot who was hit by a random bullet. That bullet didn’t have her in mind, but it hit her nonetheless. Her two children will now grow up without a mother and her husband instantly became a widower all because of a random bullet. […]

Top 15 Things I Want for Mother’s Day

May 7, 2016

Forget flowers and presents, this is what I want for Mother’s Day. I want one day where my kids… 1. Do exactly what I say and never once say NO! (Can you imagine saying “no” when your parents asked you do to something?! I certainly can’t!) 2. Similar to the aforementioned request, when I say “put your shoes on.” PUT […]

Support System

May 4, 2016

When our babies are young, we start them in playgroups. Why? What’s the point of a bunch of small babies eating each others’ rattles and spitting up on each others’ socks? I’m sure in some way we are teaching our children early socialization skills. More importantly, the mothers are finding an outlet. We are trying to reach out to people […]
