daily two cents

The inner conflict with my dream to move continues. As some of you may remember, a year ago we had our house on the market with little success. As the summer continues, we are loving our community pool and living close to almost everything we could ever want. However, the frustration over not having a yard continues. In keeping tabs […]

Oh the pets…

July 20, 2011

As I attempt to write this blog, I have my cat of seven years laying across my arm. He is honestly the sweetest, most loving, more dog-like cat around. He has so much to offer, yet it’s hard for us to appreciate it. When we first got Clark I had just gotten my first apartment on my own living in […]

You are perfect just the way you are!

July 18, 2011

I recently starting thinking about what it takes to raise a well-adjusted girl, on the heels of celebrating Gabby’s new found love for food. Boys have their challenges, don’t get me wrong, but everyone knows that raising girls comes with an emotional hormonal roller coaster where mothers frequently can’t do anything right. I was reading an article this morning… http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/07/18/us-heavy-teens-idUSTRE76H15320110718 […]

She Eats!

July 15, 2011

Gabby has had problems eating really since day one. At first it was spitting up to the point where she wasn’t growing appropriately. Then, next came the months of vomiting. Doctors across America (really just a few doctors we have seen in the Chicagoland area) have fought me saying that she is probably just spitting up. I have patiently, and […]

July 13, 2011

As a working mom I felt the prejudice of stay at home moms that seemed to judge whether I was making the right choice for my family by working. I forgot that there would be a reverse bias when I crossed over. I always prided myself on being a business woman with confidence and intellect. I took pride in the […]

Who Cares?

July 12, 2011

For the last few years, every time anyone breathed a word of Casey Anthony, Caylee or anything along those lines, I wanted to run the other way. And fortunately as years of the trial carried on, I was able to stick my head in the sand. In recent weeks, it’s become impossible to ignore. Every channel you turn to is […]

I Will Survive…

July 11, 2011

I survived my first week at home. Survived is an interesting word. That verb used to describe how one handled being deserted on an island is in some ways vastly different than describing caring for ones children. In other ways, however, those experiences are extremely similar. The first half of the week was built on this elation of being home […]

Mixed Marriage

July 10, 2011

Having a marriage where there are mixed beliefs makes things a little harder. For some people that means sending your children to church for Christmas and temple for the high holidays which can be difficult to manage. In my family it means going to Wrigley Field to support the Cubs and Cellular One to cheer for the White Sox. Being […]

Poker Face

July 6, 2011

Day one of being a stay at home mom and I’m still standing (or sitting in this case). As a safety measure for both the kids and me, I planned a fun-filled action packed day at the beach. Bags were packed, picnic made and we were off! As I was inching my way to the beach, the hard truth sunk […]

‘Tis the Season

June 28, 2011

Three years ago, June 12, was when I became a mom for the first time. One year ago, June 26, was when I became a mom for the second time. And from before May 1st 2011 (Adam’s birthday), I have been fervently planning and preparing for the season of birthdays. So today, June 27, I’m finally done with this season. […]
