I just can’t get it right!

September 7, 2012

This morning we were headed for catastrophe. It was almost as if we were walking down the center of a highway with a giant truck coming directly at us. Even as the truck got closer, I was immobilized to move out of his way and I couldn’t get to the sidewalk. Today was the first of Gabby and my Tot […]

Mommy’s Retreat

September 6, 2012

I have one blissful retreat during the day. It has taken awhile for me to get to the place where I can have this break. But everyday I enjoy it so much. It sustains me. Our day consists of a rather hectic morning, dash to school, gym, dash back to school, crazy lunchtime and then free play until nap and […]

I will NOT negotiate with terrorists!!!

September 5, 2012

I have a firm policy, I will not negotiate with terrorists. The minute, or rather seconds, tears and carrying on starts (i.e. a temper tantrum) I will no longer negotiate common terms. I am immediately standing my ground all cost. And usually the cost is all mine, but it is a philosophy that I wholeheartedly support. There are a lot […]

Bring on the Details!

September 4, 2012

“Good.” “Yes.” “No.” Well that sums up Drew’s first day of school! The anticipation beforehand was in wearing his new super cool backpack. Once the thrill of that was over, the dread set in. It’s interesting because every time we spoke about it, he didn’t seem to think twice about it. He’s only been away from the establishment for two […]

She’s got a way about her…

August 31, 2012

Drew recently had a play date with a friend who chronically appears to have a stronger affection for Gabby than Drew. Of course as this friend shows his fondness for Gabby, Drew gets possessive and WAY more in love with his sister than normal. He also seems to get upset that his friend doesn’t feel that way for him. At […]

On the road again…

August 29, 2012

Thursday we leave for vaca #2 of August. This is a shorter getaway filled with kid activities 24/7…also known as my modern dream vacation. It used to be that all I wanted was a beach and a few cocktails for a vacation. Nowadays my dream vacations have transformed to Disney World and Wisconsin Dells. The concept of going to restaurants […]

Soccer Mom

August 28, 2012

And so it begins our round the world experience to as many sports as possible. Although I’m afraid that this will only mean that I will forever be the Queen of Shlep, Mommy chauffeur, or Carpool Goddess, I’m still committed to trying to encourage Drew’s many interests. This weekend marked the first of our life in soccer, and I’m officially […]

The Bump Club

August 27, 2012

Over the weekend, while at a restaurant, someone looked at me standing and graciously offered up their seat. It’s official, I am part of the Bump Club! When I say bump, I really mean large mass of a stomach that resembles something far more than 22 weeks in my clinical opinion. I remember going through this feeling with each child. […]

IT’S A…

August 24, 2012

The 20th week appointment is a big deal in the world of pregnancy. It’s when you have the opportunity to find out what sex baby you are having. And in some ways the gender of the baby totally shapes the dynamic of your family. When I was pregnant with Drew, I counted down the seconds until our ultrasound. Seeing the […]

10th BFBBQ

August 23, 2012

Ten years of throwing the best barbecue of the summer. The evolution of the BFBBQ has been amazing. The first year it was the party of the century. We went through eight kegs and picked up more beer. Everyone’s friends of friends of friends were in attendance. And as the years have gone by we have had some bad weather […]
