Super Why Not?

February 15, 2012

Super Mom was anti-television. Super Mom did not allow television in her house unless it was early am so Super Mom and Super Dad could get ready. Super Mom’s son stopped napping. Super Mom is not Super, just a mom. And this mom sadly NEEDS the tv. At first, because of limited exposure, Drew would watch a couple of shows. […]

My New Favorite Island

February 1, 2012

The major heavy duty work for our new house has been completed. Not that there aren’t tons of more projects that I’d like to tackle, but all the immediate jobs are done. All the jobs we are doing now are fun jobs that make our house more comfortable or prettier. Frankly these are the jobs I like best. The most […]

I’m obsessed

January 27, 2012

Anyone who has ever read this blog has probably gathered that I’m infrequently a “blah” kinda person. It’s a good thing as much as it is a bad thing. When I have a feeling, its usually a strong feeling. When I like something, I really like it. When I dislike something…you get the picture. It allows for me to live […]

Working my way through the day

January 6, 2012

Adam did it again. He managed to make my much dreaded birthday amazing! And part of that was the gift he gave me, a gift that keeps giving. The funny thing was that I distinctly said to Adam that I couldn’t imagine what he had gotten me since I hadn’t hinted at anything. Yet he got me exactly what I […]

My fave is Brooke Burke…

I’m not sure why Jews take pride in knowing which celebrities are Jewish but we just do. Maybe it’s because we exist in a world of non-Jews that sometimes we feel left out. And there’s clearly no shortage of Jews in Hollywood. We take pride in being amongst many that have a lot of talent – Adam Sandler has reminded […]

I’m not going to apologize for my desire to buy trash magazines and catch up on celebrity gossip. I realize it’s not the most intellectually stimulating reading material. I also realize that it’s not like I’m busy working on my PhD and I’m normally a more intellectual person. I’m just gonna say, it’s what I like so take it or […]

No, I’m not talking about Eternal Flame, although that is surely an oldy but goody. I’m talking about a creative gift idea for loved ones that incorporates pictures of your kids. I constantly have issues coming up with clever grandparent gifts. My mom always brought me up believing that a gift from the heart – something I made or a […]

I Wonder! what you think…

November 30, 2011

There’s a new place in the Chicago-land area, as well as now in my backyard, called Wonder! It’s a kid superstore with tons of shopping, classes for kids, a place for birthday parties and an activity area all rolled up in one. For the record, I have only been there once and was managing a 5:2 ratio kids:adults. So my […]

Calling all wigglebottoms

November 16, 2011

Through countless behavioral challenges, we have depended on books to guide us through the tough spots. When a new sibling came, we went straight to books to help prepare Drew. With all this talk of moving, books have helped to articulate all the things we wanted to tell Drew but struggled to find ways to make it 3 year old […]

Cover my tush!

November 5, 2011

With two small kids I have tried my fair share of diapers. First I started out with Pampers. These I found to be perfect for infants but not as tough for a mobile kid. The infant diaper has that nice strip that shows you on the exterior if your child pee’d. They are soft and seemed like the best for […]
