A Picture Says a Million Words…part II

May 13, 2013

I had high hopes for Mother’s Day. High hopes for a Mother’s Day that doesn’t exist for me…yet at least. I had hopes for a day without temper tantrums. I had visions of a day where only kind words were sent my way. I dreamt up a day where crabbiness was only a mythological thing that was in story books. […]

Kindy Roundup

May 9, 2013

Today is “Kindy Roundup.” It’s our first introduction to kindergarten. Rumor has it, kindergarten is kinda a big deal. When my thoughts of quitting my job came into play, I kept obsessing over the fact that I only have the first five years of their lives. The first five years are when they only want/need you. After that they are […]

It was a RED kinda day!

May 8, 2013

Yesterday Drew’s behavior was on “red” (a scale where behavior is rated from green, yellow to red). Although it’s not the first time and probably won’t be the last, you can imagine my delight. After my line of interrogation fell on deaf ears, I decided to march into school and demand an explanation (or walk in with my tail between […]

Still Booby Lady

May 7, 2013

Not long ago I was bitching and moaning about my ongoing nursing issues and my friend asked me point blank…why not stop? Why not make it easier on yourself? Hm…there’s a thought. Noah is nearing five months and I am still going strong. I’ve actually gotten myself in a very nice rhythm where I’m minimally put out by it and […]

I’ve been feeling under the weather, so I went to the doc. He asked me if I ever feel stressed. WHAT?! Is it possible to NOT feel stressed? Isn’t stress a constant? It’s like someone asking if it’s ever windy in Chicago. In order for a given day to run smoothly, I must rally the troops, take inventory on what […]

Revised Cinderella

May 3, 2013

Two and a half years of training Gabby to be my little princess (or “ya-ya” as the case may be) has done me well. And low and behold she is a card carrying member of the Princess Club. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t over think it…just a bit. Gabby’s biggest obsession has been for Cinderella, a fine choice […]

Trip Down Memory Lane

May 2, 2013

More and more I’m finding Noah to look (and frighteningly act) like Drew. Maybe it’s all of the hand me downs he’s been sporting. Maybe it’s because he’s my second boy so it’s only natural I compare them. Whatever it is, it’s taking me on a major trip down memory lane. I’ve been dusting off some oldies but goodies of […]

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 […]
