Walk a mile in these shoes!

April 9, 2013

I recently ran into someone who just had her third kid, aged exactly the same as mine. When I asked her how it was going, I expected her to pipe in similarly to me. I expected, life is insane…it’s a wonder how I get out of the house in the morning…see this stream of spit up along my left side, […]

Shuffling to the Finish

April 8, 2013

Well, I did it. I had a baby, rested up, hit the gym hard and crossed the finish line yesterday. And I, of course, had many thoughts on the matter… For one, running is sorta like pregnancy and childbirth. I spend the majority of the time hating how I feel, all culminating to one enormous pain (in this case it […]

The Value of a Dollar

April 3, 2013

Drew has a constant NEED. He needs an unbelievable amount of sports jerseys. He’s not even particular. He’ll take any team and any player. They do need to have a number on the back, which frequently adds to the price tag of his NEED. We have recently started facilitating a “Responsibility Chart” which spells out his required tasks (make bed, […]

Can I take ME out of this equation?

April 2, 2013

My last few blogs about my youngest have been more optimistic. I mentioned the joys of reaching that 3 month milestone without fear of returning to my job, I mentioned that we are seeing more smiles and overall (knock on wood) I am experiencing at least a couple nights a week of more than less sleep. Then, like most things […]

The Voyage

April 1, 2013

I’m fermished. Fermished is Yiddish for mixed up or messed up, otherwise known as scattered. I keep talking about this redefined normal, also known as my life. It’s kinda like after you get married and you forget to change your name with everything. So all of a sudden you go to do something and it’s messed up because they have […]

The Domino Effect

March 29, 2013

Reason 357,926 why it’s hard having three children: The Domino Effect. When the Domino Effect happens at 7am resulting in three wide awake children while I am trying to get ready, it’s annoying. When the Domino Effect occurs at 2:30am, it’s downright impossible. Thanks Drew for starting that one out last night. People keep asking me if it’s harder going […]

We took a nonstop flight

March 28, 2013

Some people take their kids on lavish vacations. Not I. I take my kids to Lifetime Fitness Club. Although we are certainly not soaking up any rays, I’d venture to say that they seem to be incredibly content. The thrill of pressing the elevator button seems to excite them each and every day. And if a temper tantrum/crying upon mere […]

It’s not easy being Jewish

March 27, 2013

Judaism is not a cool kids religion. There are several reasons I make this claim. On the most important of Jewish holidays, we sit in temple for hours. The holiday reaches a climax at the end of eight days, not because we get a big party or tons of gifts. Rather it all culminates with a fast. If my kids […]

Hard Headed?

March 21, 2013

Parenting is full of such highs and lows. Today, coming off of yesterday, I’m on a high. Not because I had a good night’s sleep – heck, that was when I worked up this attitude, in my awake nighttime hours. It’s not because I haven’t had to take away one of Drew’s most prized possessions due to bad behavior, because […]

Am I failing?

March 20, 2013

She might as well have said that I’m starving my child. Tears started streaming down my face and no amount of blinks could hold back the disaster I was about to become. She asked if I had family to lean on…um, I’m leaning on them about as much as humanly possible and I still can’t pull this off!!! Those were […]
