What’s with fine motor skills?

February 16, 2012

Drew has definitely had his fair share of behavioral challenges but for the most part he has been consistently ahead of the curve. He rolled over at 10 weeks, he peed on the potty for the first time at 18 months, he plays baseball like a 5 year old, etc. So although I may sound like a bragging mom, I […]

Date Night

February 13, 2012

This weekend Mom and Dad had the lovely opportunity to celebrate Valentine’s Day in the city for the day and spend the night at a hotel. In the anticipation of an evening out of this nature, I go through many mixed feelings. At first I almost feel as if this type of outing is unnecessary and at this stage there’s […]

I was recently sucked into an article about 7 Secrets of Successful Parenting. As if it were as easy as seven tips. I felt that my non-stop frustration with never understanding the right way to handle my children meant that I must read this article top to bottom. And before I knew it, I was completely sucked into the article […]

Girly Girl

February 7, 2012

I didn’t have a strong male influence in my life so when I was first told I was having a boy I was excited but was really unsure with what you do with a boy. Fortunately Drew has educated me as we’ve gone. I am now aware of sports players I never knew existed. In some ways I’m more comfortable […]

Do life preservers help if you wear them 24/7?

February 6, 2012

I struggled for quite some time about what Drew was going to do for camp. You may remember Camp Mom where I explained my frustration with camp plans in October. One of my largest concerns with big boy camp was the pool aspect of camp. I have not been quiet about Drew’s inability (at times) to effectively listen to instructors. […]

Who’s a good boy???

February 2, 2012

Drew is on a roll. Stickers left and right, presents rewarded, opportunities available, etc etc. Now of course we have to raise the bar, make the stakes a little steeper. And I get the jist and feel good about our progress but… The real world doesn’t strategize an incentive program for those that don’t get it. When he goes to […]

The Restaurant Devil

January 31, 2012

I’m over it. One of my most favorite things to do is dine out. But I’m over it. I no longer want to dine out with my children, it’s not worth it. It’s funny how you go in cycles. For awhile Drew was impossible to take to restaurants and now he has become easy. He will color, space out to […]

My Job

January 30, 2012

We had a team meeting today, a Drew team meeting. His teachers, the social worker, Adam and I all met to discuss his progress. I’m happy to say there has been progress. I’ve definitely noticed an improvement with things at home. And at school, he has had an incentive chart which he is coming home with stickers of success and […]

It’s about rights

January 26, 2012

So I’ve definitely shown my true colors by explaining my feelings about the Kardashians. I think they are unbelievably beautiful, nice to look at, and oddly entertaining. That all being said, I have felt very slighted by Kim’s marriage. Not that I expected it to be more than your average celebrity marriage. And definitely not that they owe me anything […]

Embrace the Mantra

January 23, 2012

I’ve been raised with this impending doom feeling hanging over my head. My mom is not to blame for this mentality. It’s more like a cultural thing. Maybe its from being a part of a religion that was repeatedly persecuted for their beliefs. Maybe somehow being neurotic is an inheritable trait. Either way I come from long lineage of insane […]
