Dear Adam,

May 1, 2013

Sometimes it feels like I’m in the trenches of war. I’m barricaded by the bomb strike ahead, I’m under siege by the machine guns at my right and the sniper is sneaking up on me at the left. And in the midst of it all, I see a hand. A hand that is shaking just as much as mine. A […]

Bedtime Agony

April 30, 2013

Bedtime used to be a science. Twenty minutes – pjs, teeth brushing, face washing, stories and sleep. Easy as that. Until now… Everyone who knows anything about rearing children knows that kids thrive on routine. If you have a series of activities that prepare them for the winding down that comes with bedtime, it will be a smooth transition to […]

Birthday Pressure

April 29, 2013

And so starts the season of holidays. Wednesday marks my hubby’s 33rd birthday, followed by Mother’s Day, then Drew’s birthday, Father’s Day and Gabby’s birthday. This only means to you, my readers, that you will have to hear me bitch and moan about all the planning, work and preparations ahead. I have not been quiet about how wonderful my husband […]

Our Norman Rockwell Painting

April 26, 2013

In the Norman Rockwell painting I envisioned my family to be, I had my beautiful children aged approximately two years a part. They would grow up with their best friends, i.e. their siblings, in tow. Family events (somehow I imagined them around an X-mas tree although we are Jewish and do not have one) were spent making lasting memories that […]

The Leash

April 24, 2013

Yesterday we got a Parents Manual to Drew’s camp in the mail. Panic rose over me from the tips of my hair to the bottom of my feet. Was it the thought of packing lunches five days a week? I do despise packing lunches but that wasn’t it. Was it picking him up at 2:45 during Gabby’s naptime? Doesn’t exactly […]

Freedom!!!

April 23, 2013

I was with a friend over the weekend who looked at Noah and sighed that she wanted one (a baby). I told her to enjoy what she has now – freedom. Easy for me to say… This weekend marks the first of three consecutive weekends of babysitters. One would think that I would be ecstatic at the opportunity to get […]

End of Innocence

April 22, 2013

My mom talks about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy as an end of their innocence. After that point, things were never the same. When my generation was born, we were born into a world where Presidents, civil rights leaders and musicians were gunned down and killed. We were never as innocent as our parents. In our lifetime, schools […]

Girls Night Out

April 18, 2013

Gabby has always been my “right hand man,” or “left hand lady” as the case may be. She and I had an instant bond. Maybe it was because I was able to stay home with her at a young age. Maybe it’s because she’s a girl like me. Or maybe it’s because she has a more mild personality since she’s […]

Weighing In

April 17, 2013

I fought the fight for three solid months that I was not going to give in and my baby was going to be exclusively breastfed. It wasn’t until the second month in a row where my little butterball was lacking in butter that I caved. It might have had something to do with the doctor looking at me with those […]

Is my belly big enough to house three children?

April 16, 2013

Most mothers worry while they are pregnant. Have they felt the baby kick in awhile? Will everything come back alright from the test they took? How will the delivery go for both parties? In so many ways, pregnancy is one of the few times that you can really protect your children. You don’t have to worry as much about the […]
