‘Tis the Season

June 28, 2011

Three years ago, June 12, was when I became a mom for the first time. One year ago, June 26, was when I became a mom for the second time. And from before May 1st 2011 (Adam’s birthday), I have been fervently planning and preparing for the season of birthdays. So today, June 27, I’m finally done with this season. […]

Bring on the carpools!

June 22, 2011

We have recently added to our family. With my job ending, I’m losing some perks of my job including my company car. As Adam and I planned how our family is going to weather this change, we started discussing what vehicle should replace my current one. A couple of months ago I got rear-ended and my rental car was a […]

Saying Goodbye is Hard to Do

June 22, 2011

I’ve never been one for goodbyes. I prefer “see you later” or something more non-committal than an actual goodbye. I’m not exactly sure why I despise saying goodbye but I usually try to avoid saying goodbye at all costs. As my time at my job is winding down I’m faced with approaching those goodbyes. I visit offices weekly and it’s […]

Is this the hill to die on?

June 17, 2011

With all these new toys and all these great clothes, every morning has been a fight over Drew wearing his most favorite, highly worn sports paraphernalia. What happened to boys not caring about clothes? What happened to comfort when playing being kids’ number one priority with garments? When we were opening his presents, he opened a White Sox outfit first. […]

Goodbye 2 Year Old!

June 16, 2011

My mom has said from time to time that although she loves the big girl that I’ve become, she misses the baby I once was. I got a taste of that this weekend. My big boy turned three. He’s far from the adult I am but I had some serious sadness as he turned three. Saturday night when I was […]

Utopian Vacation

June 12, 2011

It’s very infrequent in one’s life to be in a place of complete and utter utopia. Of course I have moments of sheer happiness but complete and utter utopia requires your brain and all emotions to be completely involved in the one thing you are doing. And being a complex individual, such as myself, it is very difficult for me […]

Do-Over Please

June 8, 2011

I recently had the opportunity to spend some time with my rugrats alone. And although I can recognize that it’s going to be a work in progress, I’m in dire need of a do-over. My goal is to try and keep the emotion out of our interactions. Of course I want to feel emotional about my children, but I don’t […]

A Slave to the Routine

June 2, 2011

I did something this weekend that I very infrequently do, I only had fun. Of course I have many weekends that include fun. But to only have fun means that errands were not run, laundry was not cleaned, the house wasn’t organized, etc. Don’t worry, I haven’t flown off the handle. I still managed to keep everything in order but […]

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

May 25, 2011

After months of reflection, bouncing ideas around, balancing budgets, I was relieved to finally announce to my boss that I had made the decision to stay home and raise my kids. I thought that once I had come clean with my plans that I would be left with only relief and excitement. I never quite anticipated the angst that I […]

I did it!

May 13, 2011

When you take a risk, there’s anxiety involved. When you take a risk and you have two small children whose well-being depends on your stability, there’s intense fear involved. How does that translate when that risk is also a dream come true? How does that translate when you are completely disrupting the world that those children live in? Wednesday, May […]
