Constant State of Construction

March 19, 2013

My life is under construction. It’s an eighteen year, multifaceted job with several different rollouts. We are in the demolition phase. And it hurts…boy does it hurt. I’m told once they get to pour the concrete, the roads may get a little smoother. Right now, however, it is in an utter state of chaos. And although all that is true […]

Independent, Crazy Kid in the Making

March 15, 2013

For awhile, Noah’s sole existence was to eat, sleep and scream. I wouldn’t exactly say that we are out of those stages but we have added smiling into the mix. It, unfortunately, doesn’t take up enough of the day quite yet. But it’s there! And it couldn’t come sooner, as far as I’m concerned. Between lack of sleep, constant screams […]

Crazy People on the Loose!

March 13, 2013

Not sure if you got the memo, but 4-1/2 and 2-1/2 year olds are big kids. They can constantly “I do myself” or “I walk myself.” In all do fairness, Drew doesn’t talk like that AND he is getting a little large for me to pick him up, let alone squeeze his long legs into the front of a shopping […]

Ray of Sunshine

March 12, 2013

Life is different. It’s gonna be different forever. Yet this phase that we are at, this floundering, disastrous state is (I hope) temporary. I totally get that. Yet sometimes there’s a ray of sunshine in the midst of it that almost makes me ready to go back into the battle field. It used to be a night out on the […]

Growing up, my house was quiet. I used to put on music, the tv and talk on the phone just to feel like there was action going on. It’s not that I couldn’t stand the quiet, I just craved noise. I would go over to friends’ houses that had siblings, people coming and going and be jealous. Be careful of […]

3 Months

March 7, 2013

Thirteen days until I can take Noah to the gym with me. I have been so focused on that marker, a point which will alleviate some of the chaos of my life. Instead of dropping Drew off at school, Noah at my parents’ and Gabby at the gym kids club, we’ll be streamlined to two steps. Phew. The last week, […]

Dress the Part

March 6, 2013

I have always taken pride in what I look like. Call me materialistic, perhaps my values are askew. Whatever it is, I think it’s important to dress the part. So when Adam was in a nasty long sleeve t-shirt before we left for an adult Saturday night birthday party, I demanded he change and sighed a big sigh (not him […]

Snow Day

March 5, 2013

It wasn’t too long ago where I was like all these other people celebrating a snow day. A snow day meant either I was going to have some time to rest and catch up on my DVR. Or it meant that we had some unexpected family time. Nowadays it means neither of those things. Days over in my country are […]

We survived another week!

March 1, 2013

Two years ago when I was just learning what life was like balancing two children and getting back to working full time, I felt a huge weight lift when we made it through the week to Friday. Although I would like to think it was because it meant that I could spend two consecutive days with my kids, it really […]

Glutton for Punishment?

February 28, 2013

At an overdue 2 month checkup yesterday, the doc told me that Noah isn’t gaining as he should. WHAT?!?! I almost lost it. Feel free to remind me that at this point “IT” has been long gone. And as much as I claim to have lost it on several occasions, I’m still getting up in the morning and charging through […]
