Who was the one that really went under the knife?

June 3, 2010

This precious little being comes into the world so perfect, innocent and untouched by the world’s harsh realities. Then life runs it’s course and your child is traumatized, made to suffer through pain and swallowed up by the ugly world. Yesterday Drew was gleefully running around outside and I was suffering from inner tumult. I knew that today we would […]

Fork in the Road

May 27, 2010

Our realtor recently contacted us suggesting that we rent out our townhouse. She believes that we would be able to find a tenant that could hold a two-year lease covering all of our costs. For those of us anxious for more space and the opportunity to capitalize on the low cost of homes in great areas, it sounded like the […]

Change is hard…

May 18, 2010

Monday we embarked on our first day at the new school. We had done everything to set Drew up for success; gone a few days before to play at the new school, decorated a new box for storing his things at the new school, talked about the fun things to be done at the new school with the new teachers, […]

Price Tag for Good Health?

May 12, 2010

What price tag would you put on your child’s health? Is there a monetary value you would put on potentially curing an uncurable disease? What exactly would you be buying into? Are you purchasing an insurance policy that guarantees your child a long, healthy life? Or are you investing in a neurotic vulnerable parent trap? Cord blood banking is a […]

Follow the Green Brick Road…

May 5, 2010

It’s official, I have fallen victim to the “green” craze and the organic movement. It was the cleverest marketing gimmick anyone could have ever come up with. Target mothers, first time, neurotic, germ-phobic mothers and market a “safer,” more gentle chemical that will keep your children protected from the world around us. Don’t get me wrong, I believe there is […]

Thirty Something

April 29, 2010

Thirty Something, remember that show? It was about adults, with adult problems in adult scenarios. This Saturday Adam is embarking in that category – adulthood, or at least being thirty something. Shortly after he joins that age bracket, I will follow. I am confident that age doesn’t define who you are; my grandparents are the most youthful eighty somethings I […]

The countdown has begun!

April 22, 2010

I “only” have ten weeks left of my pregnancy and it’s either the anxiety or heartburn that is weighing my chest down. I’m getting to the place where I can accept that I will have two children and I may even learn how to manage two. I’m definitely anxious to not be pregnant anymore and not have to lug around […]

New beginnings lead to sad endings…

April 13, 2010

Leaving your child with strangers is one of the most vulnerable feelings. After my maternity leave with Drew, we started taking him to the JCC a couple of days a week for daycare. At first I called once in the morning and once in the afternoon for updates. As time went by, I reduced my calls to only once a […]

The Angel Versus The Devil

April 7, 2010

The little devil on Drew’s shoulder triumphed as he spilled the dog’s food onto the floor. This has been an ongoing conflict Drew has been dealing with – the devil versus the angel. Unfortunately the devil has had increasingly more influence lately. Before I had Drew, I was always the kind of person that would watch parents discipline their children […]

Happy Passover

April 1, 2010

This week all across the world Jews are celebrating Passover. That includes this Jew. Every holiday we experience with our little sponge, Drew, our feelings of religion and celebration changes a little bit. Everything we do, every way we celebrate there is some little person there absorbing some part of our actions. This has forced me to evaluate what type […]
