Last year we went on our friends’ boat. We swam in the middle of the lake, which (much like many other experiences) I found very nerve wracking since we were unable to touch the bottom and were supposed to support our children while treading water. We played at their house which has an unusually steep outdoor staircase that our kids […]

Two weeks ago there was angst and agony at the mere thought of the two week break in between school and camp. I’d be lying if I said it was the first time I felt this level of anxiety, but it seems to come a couple weeks before every break. We are all such creatures of our schedule that the […]

A Relaxing Day at the Pool

May 29, 2012

I lived to tell the tale which in and of itself is a feat. It’s not unusual for a mom to take her children to the pool. And most probably take it all in their stride…la la la la la we’re going to the pool. Most doesn’t mean me. If I’ve proved nothing in my blogs is that I’m a […]

King of Potchky

April 2, 2012

I live with the King of Potchky. It’s almost as if at the slightest mention of moving his body faster, his body inadvertently (or extremely purposely as the case may be) starts moving even slower! In case you are unfamiliar with the word potchky, it is a yiddish word that has always meant something similar to dilly dally in my […]

Do life preservers help if you wear them 24/7?

February 6, 2012

I struggled for quite some time about what Drew was going to do for camp. You may remember Camp Mom where I explained my frustration with camp plans in October. One of my largest concerns with big boy camp was the pool aspect of camp. I have not been quiet about Drew’s inability (at times) to effectively listen to instructors. […]

What’s inner peace?

January 3, 2012

Last week I celebrated the ten year anniversary of my 21st birthday. This anniversary coupled with the conclusion of 2011, really got me thinking about where I’ve been, what I’ve done and where I’m going. I’ve only been able to legally drink for ten years, vote for thirteen, drive for fifteen. Yet what I’ve accomplished, created, in those thirty one […]

Bumpy Ride

December 12, 2011

There has been a whole heck of a lot of packing going on in the last few weeks. And with all the packing I’ve done, I decided that packing for a trip has got to be the worst! Don’t get me wrong, packing glasses and weird shaped objects in such a way that nothing breaks is no day in the […]

Back in the land of the living!

December 6, 2011

It’s amazing how in less than one weeks time, a dirty gross pile of bricks can become your home. Walking around our empty townhouse when we were all packed up, it looked like a skeleton of a home that it once was. And now that we are relatively unpacked and our things are filling up our freshly made over house, […]

It’s official, we own two homes. At the very beginning of this process I said that things would have to align for this whole scenario to work. And although the elements of our new home started to come together, there was so much uncertainty with our current home that it was hard to get excited. Yesterday we closed on our […]

Mommy Needs a Nap

October 25, 2011

I have found my least patient time of day is the fifteen minutes before naptime or bedtime. It could be the most successful day full of fun but around 2:15 or 7:45 Tyrant Mommy comes out. It’s similar to the monster that comes out when these children are due for sleep, but it’s my temper tantrum. It used to be […]
