I’m one of those people who cannot read that pamphlet that Walgreens provides with your prescription. The mere suggestion of a potential side effect and I can almost guarantee that I will become symptomatic. So now that I am just about 36 weeks pregnant, I’m having the nervous feeling that I am going to go into labor at any moment. […]

We had an excellent weekend. It wasn’t because we went on vacation or did anything extraordinary. We managed to have a perfect amount of plans and a surprisingly great amount of unstructured downtime. Sunday the blues started though. Today I woke up utterly exhausted and feeling unready to conquer the week. Then I remembered what Mondays used to be like, […]

Pregnancy Brain

November 13, 2012

It started with messing up a birthday party time. Next I left Gabby’s coat at a restaurant (fortunately it was a warm day and not like the recent weather). Then there were things I’d forget to get at certain stores. Whatever the story is, I officially have an extreme case of Pregnancy Brain! As if it weren’t hard enough to […]

And then there were five…

November 2, 2012

For the past thirty weeks of this pregnancy, being pregnant has been a complete after thought. Who has time to think about anything when you are crazy busy with two other rugrats?!? But once I crossed the thirty week threshold, the HOLY SH*T WE ARE HAVING A BABY feelings started. This past weekend we purchased a “big girl” bedroom set […]

Adam Land

October 29, 2012

Adam has this ability…let’s say talent, for turning “it” off. This seems to work when the television is on, any program will do, or when it’s time to go to sleep. There have been many times I have been frustrated with this trip he takes to “Adam land” but the truth is that I’m jealous. I have ants in my […]

Just the 4 of Us

October 22, 2012

The earth has shifted its axle or in a state of extreme irony, my life seems to have gotten dramatically easier. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not lounging on the couch more, there isn’t less laundry to do, and my day does not consist of popping bom boms. It’s just that we are in such a rhythm that everything seems […]

I just can’t get it right!

September 7, 2012

This morning we were headed for catastrophe. It was almost as if we were walking down the center of a highway with a giant truck coming directly at us. Even as the truck got closer, I was immobilized to move out of his way and I couldn’t get to the sidewalk. Today was the first of Gabby and my Tot […]

Can my kids live in a bubble?

August 2, 2012

Swimming pools petrify me. They scare me in a way that I don’t ever know how I will send my children to camps where they are able to swim where only paid professionals are watching them. I have always been a camp person, an advocate for children going to camp. But the thought of swim lessons or, dare I say, […]

The Calm Before the Storm

July 26, 2012

As I am planning our upcoming fall schedule, it’s almost as if the world ends in my mind come January. Although there’s some indifference about when “Tres” (as we endearingly are calling the third child) will enter the world, it’s approximately around January. My brain is unable to grow to the point of comprehension of three children at three different […]

Doctor’s diagnosis? Mom is crazy!

July 16, 2012

As a parent, you have a tremendous amount of influence in your child’s life – for a long time you are the only influence. As the years go by, the kids get older and they start to find their own way. As a parent, the choices you make for your children not only influence them but sometimes take them down […]
