Play Dates Gone Awry

November 12, 2015

I’m starting to really dislike play dates…gasp!!! ┬áMy idea of a play date is a light snack, some engaging creative play, followed up by a break with maybe another light snack or drink of water, complete with some more engaging play. Sounds pretty good and relatively freeing for the mother overseeing the play date. Generally speaking that is not at […]

Post-Vacation Mama

October 28, 2015

It took me exactly one week and a day to reach the place of pre-vacation. By that I mean, it took me a week and a day to reach the point of no patience, complete and utter disregard for the nonstop shenanigans. Frankly I see that as success. The problem begs that I would have to leave my children for […]

Vacation Blues

October 22, 2015

Vacation is hard. For those of you who have not vacationed in awhile, your first thought may be “cry me a river,” but I’m telling you that it’s not easy going on vacation. I’m speaking strictly of an actual vacation so let me differentiate to avoid confusion. A vacation is when you leave your home, do not practice any of […]

It’s not pretty

October 7, 2015

Allowing my seven year old to stay up late and watch the Cubs’ game sounded like a tolerable request when Adam was responsible for putting Drew to sleep upon completion of the game and dealing with him in the morning. What is completely not tolerable is the fact that Adam conveniently needed to go out of town this week, leaving […]

In a very short time (yes, I have a countdown going) my husband and I will leave our children for 7 days to go on an adult only vacation. Yipppppeeee! In preparation of this grand departure, I have encountered two major challenges. For one, our schedule! I don’t want to toot my own horn but toot toot. How is it […]

My Religion

September 24, 2015

Yesterday was the holiest day in a Jewish person’s year. It was the day of atonement where we fast and apologize for all the mistakes we have made yearlong. Spending my day hungry, thirsty and headachey, I spent most of the day doing what I always do – beating down on myself. “I’m sorry for not being a better mother […]

Is it time for an upgrade???

September 15, 2015

I have explained my desire to keep Noah my baby. And for the most part, he’s completely on board. He’s happily embraced school in a well-balanced, “mom didn’t mess me up too badly by keeping me the baby” sorta way. There are some things that come with age, or experiencing school, that I’m hesitant to jump on board with. He […]

Say a little prayer for me…

September 8, 2015

I have always traveled with an entourage. I’m not talking about my hair dresser or anyone named Turtle. Rather, my mom and grandparents have been at everything in my life big or small or in between. My biggest cheerleaders and there to support me through it all. Having children didn’t change that, just made my entourage larger. All three of […]

Time

September 1, 2015

Where did the time go??? People say it all the time. They look at a 8-1/2 month pregnant woman and explain that they just found out they were pregnant…where did the five months go?!? Easy for them to say, they haven’t been living the agony of having a baby grow inside them. Or people looking at a 13 year old […]

It’s School, oh baby!!!!

August 26, 2015

You may have heard hooting and hollering across the Chicagoland area today, as it was FINALLY the first day of school. I was tempted to take them last night and wait outside the school but I’m so very fond of our frantic, rushing, scream fests that the school mornings usually consist of. I realize that these feelings are not foreign […]
