I’m Haunted

September 19, 2013

Why is it that bad things happen to good people? That thought haunts my mind. That thought makes me hold on tighter to my kids before they leave my grasp (as if I can protect in my arms). That sentiment makes me beg everyone to drive safely (as if the words alone will keep them safe). Every time I hear […]

I’m Failing…literally

September 17, 2013

Nobody is going to be shocked when I say that I’m overwhelmed. I’m overwhelmed by having three kids. I’m overwhelmed by having an absentee husband. I’m overwhelmed by the amount of laundry I must do in a given week. I’m overwhelmed by the amount of groceries I must buy weekly. The list goes on and on and on. What is […]

Just call me Taz

August 27, 2013

My brain has become absolute mush. You know that Tasmanian devil that spins around and around, that is my head all the time these days. At any given moment I could have a panic attack over which child I forgot, where I’m supposed to be or what I’ve neglected. I’m afraid that this is just the beginning of the end. […]

On the Playground

August 19, 2013

Today we had a kindergarten play date at the school park in preparation for the big day on Thursday. The single-handed worst thing that could happen in that instance happened. No, he didn’t break an arm. No, he didn’t get in trouble. Worse than all…his feelings were hurt!!!!!!!!!! GASP! We are walking into kindergarten knowing very few people and only […]

I need a hero!!!

August 14, 2013

There’s something about when I turn off the lights and it’s quiet in the house that makes my husband traveling extra hard. It’s not that I’m living in the 50s where I need my man to protect me to feel safe. It’s something about having three kids and knowing I’m the only adult. I spend a lot of the day […]

The other shoe dropped, it just had nothing to do with wedding planning…by Jamie (Polakoff) Lasko

July 25, 2013

April was supposed to be our month. We both celebrate birthdays in April. We’d been on our house search and our goal was to buy something by April—plenty of time to close and move in before the wedding. Well, April was our month alright, just not remotely how we imagined… April 1st—I get the most heebie-jeebie, skin-crawly sensation in my […]

Today at the gym an alarm sounded. My heart dropped. My head throbbed. All I could think about were my babies in the kids’ club. Could it be a gunman? A natural disaster? Fortunately everything in there was fine…this time. A rainstorm used to be a pleasant way to spend an afternoon cuddled up watching movies. Now I find myself […]

Flying Solo

May 20, 2013

As Adam’s start date is quickly approaching, I’m gathering up the arsenal to handle a change of this magnitude. Many people have reached out to me, people in similar situations or people managing children for hours on end. And to those I say, how do you do it? Over the weekend Adam participated in “Tough Mudder.” He spent money, woke […]

I’ve been feeling under the weather, so I went to the doc. He asked me if I ever feel stressed. WHAT?! Is it possible to NOT feel stressed? Isn’t stress a constant? It’s like someone asking if it’s ever windy in Chicago. In order for a given day to run smoothly, I must rally the troops, take inventory on what […]

Glutton for Punishment?

February 28, 2013

At an overdue 2 month checkup yesterday, the doc told me that Noah isn’t gaining as he should. WHAT?!?! I almost lost it. Feel free to remind me that at this point “IT” has been long gone. And as much as I claim to have lost it on several occasions, I’m still getting up in the morning and charging through […]
