Quarantine Living

March 25, 2020

There’s something about the direction my family has been going in over the last few months specifically, maybe year or so if I’m being honest with myself. Our life has seemed to get faster. There are more activities than I’m comfortable with, there are more distractions than ever before and there is never enough time in any given day! Monday […]

“Are you still blogging?” Yikes, has it really been THAT long??? Since the minute I quit my job, over five years ago, I have been sweating what the next chapter would look like. I knew that my retirement from that field didn’t mean that I’d spend the rest of my life popping bonbons and lounging. I wasn’t sure what life […]

I don’t think I should have ever had kids. I don’t have the stomach for it. Putting aside all the stress us parents have in actually raising suitable human beings to set loose on the world, I can’t seem to handle the growing pains my kids are experiencing out in the general world. If I can’t handle it in kindergarten […]

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. […]

Drew is…resistant. I could suggest a trip to Disney World and he would cry and carry on. Of course once we were there, he’d be happy as a lark (what the heck is a lark?!?). He may even apologize for his behavior. But actually getting him there would be extremely painful. It doesn’t really prevent us, because he’s literally resistant […]

THE Year (Part 2)

August 29, 2014

“I didn’t have fun at school. I felt left out.” WHAT?!? I’m running up to school and facilitating play at recess. I’m securing placement at the lunch table. Heads are going to roll unless my baby feels safe, secure and happy. Around which time I’ll be blogging that I need better discipline tactics because a happy Drew is usually an […]

Superhero Problems

June 4, 2014

Last night we were reading a book about Spider-Man. Spidey was overwhelmed (yes, even super heroes sometimes get overwhelmed) by all he had on his plate – homework assignments, family obligations, his job at The Bugle and of course the demands of keeping the world safe. I’m no Spider-Man but I could totally relate to his plight! I don’t know […]

You’re calling my baby WHAT?!?!

May 26, 2014

Ten months old. When my other two were seventeen months old, they were practically running marathons. So you can imagine how I felt when Early Intervention came and assessed Noah’s physical abilities at a ten month old range. It’s a good thing that Noah isn’t my first because I probably would require hospitalization from hearing that. At this point, I […]

As parents we frequently obsess over milestones. I celebrated when Drew rolled over at a mere ten weeks. Little did I know that that would be indicative of an extremely over active toddler. Gabby started “gabbing” far younger than most so I celebrated her brilliance. Little did I know that that would be indicative of a child that doesn’t stop […]

Haunted Thoughts

February 20, 2014

There’s not a maximum amount of shit that G-d bestows. It’s not like the median amount of shit is two earth shattering disasters and then you are covered. My grandpa lost his whole family – parents, brother and sister, all separately at a very young age. No one up above said that he’d met his quota so no more disasters […]
