Staycation Success

June 22, 2015

Last week I put my “mom of the year” thinking cap on and spent quality time with my kids each and every day. We were in that conundrum between school and camp and I decided to make the most of it! In the past I’ve spent a great deal of time dreading it in the anticipation, surviving it while doing […]

Dear Drew

June 8, 2015

Seven years ago when you came into this world, I had no idea what this journey of parenthood would look like. Together, hand in hand, we are combing through completely uncharted territory for the both of us. From your perspective, I think, I’m doing this like driving a car…something I learned in drivers Ed or something. The truth is most […]

Protecting Our Little First Graders

June 8, 2015

Something awful happened after Drew’s birthday party on Friday. A child left without any supervision. The birthday party was after school in the gym where two hired people and approximately ten adults were present. Since this child was used to the path home, he left and rode his bike unsupervised. Those parents entrusted me with their most valued possession and […]

End of a Chapter

May 27, 2015

How did it happen?  Literally where did the time go?  Days, weeks, months, YEARS have passed by me and I have been in a fog of madness missing it all. How is it avoidable?  I mean REALLY how is it avoidable?  When you have 3 kids in 4-1/2 years how is it avoidable? Today Gabby is graduating from preschool. My […]

Attitude Adjustment

May 20, 2015

This might come as a surprise to some of you readers but I don’t always have the most positive attitude where my kids are concerned. It’s not that I’m negative per se, but I don’t always stop and smell the roses. And I will without a doubt be crying about that in years, or blogs, to come. Lately, however, I […]

Dance Mom

May 11, 2015

I wanted a daughter for one reason – to relive my dance life. Ok not exactly but it is a major bonus. The best part of it all is that I don’t actually feel like I’m influencing her to like dance – she naturally seems inclined to it! I know most little girls dance at some point in their life. […]

Hard Knocks Life

May 5, 2015

I am never going to be the preferred parent, I’m working on coming to terms with it. I think I’ve made it to the top five, that’s not too bad right?!? From the moment I started dropping Drew off at daycare as an infant, he scooted off. I used to say that I’d like him to feel some sadness in […]

Star of the Show

April 28, 2015

As an only child and a girl, sports were never a part of my vocabulary. There wasn’t much diversity to extra curricular activities either – dance, dance and more dance. You can imagine how happy I was when Gabby took to dance similarly to me. After years of freezing her tushee off at Drew’s soccer games, I decided to offer […]

Hysteria

April 21, 2015

For 36 hours this past weekend, my baby decided to give up walking. You know that pathetic paw up look that dogs do when they have injured their paw…that was what Noah was doing. It was heart breaking for a normal mother to watch… I can’t seem to just roll with the punches and take things for what they are. […]

The Boss

April 14, 2015

Yesterday I spent the day with an unrecognizable child. This child had 3 temper tantrums about non-sensible things like getting into a diaper, being fascined into a car seat and holding hands in a parking lot. There were 3 shakedowns where this same child either pushed, grabbed or hit causing another child to cry.  I went out of town for […]
