Current Events


January 11, 2013

I have had two summer babies. And the biggest drawback with a summer baby is the fact that you don’t want to be cooped up in the house on a gorgeous day. Or the fact that you can’t swim, which is more annoying when you have one child that is swimming with his dad and having a blast. Having a […]

The disclaimer is that I am pregnant and my hormones are a wreck but it doesn’t change the fact that what happened in Connecticut this morning was a horrific tragedy. It’s hard to be compassionate and open to the information without losing yourself in the tragedy. Columbine was one of the most tragic events I can think of in my […]

Parenting is a Marathon

October 8, 2012

This past weekend one of my closest friends accomplished a very difficult goal through hard work and determination. Rachel, a.k.a. Single Gal’s Two Cents, successfully completed the Chicago Marathon. All weekend long my brain tried grasping the dedication and fortitude it took to go through with such a goal. I reminded Rachel many times how proud I am of her […]

It’s innocent, right?

July 24, 2012

I had the subject of guns on my blogging “to do” list and then this horrific tragedy happened in Colorado. I thought no better time than the present to address my concerns about guns. I try to avoid political topics while sometimes bringing up controversial parenting issues. I really hope that I get some feedback on this matter. For Drew’s […]

CEO of the house

July 20, 2012

I think my husband likes a woman in power. Of course I am the woman in power of our house, but he has been talking a lot about Marissa Mayer. Marissa was recently named the CEO of Yahoo. Two interesting points about her is that she is only 37 and she is pregnant with her first child due in October. […]

Three Little Piggies

July 3, 2012

Hopefully the house doesn’t get blown down. So this is it. This is the big blog where I announce that our family is growing. I may be a little like the “boy who cried wolf,” when I threw around the concept that we had a new addition to our family. This time, however, is no bluff, no marketing scheme, no […]

You Go GF!!

May 3, 2012

Did you hear the news? It’s incredible really. She did it! People joked that she has spent as long as 72 months being pregnant, and Jessica Simpson FINALLY had her baby. I am just as guilty as anyone. I criticized her…physique. Jessica Simpson became known for her sultry beauty. Once glamorized as Daisy in the Dukes of Hazard (most known […]

There’s gotta be a price we pay for this

March 19, 2012

Chicago has experienced unseasonably warm weather. Its been going on for a couple of weeks now and I have fought all temptation to fall for it. I have embraced playing outside, I’ve been in much better spirits as a result and I’m wearing milder temperature clothes. But I wasn’t emotionally invested in this weather at first. Somehow when I wasn’t […]

I was recently sucked into an article about 7 Secrets of Successful Parenting. As if it were as easy as seven tips. I felt that my non-stop frustration with never understanding the right way to handle my children meant that I must read this article top to bottom. And before I knew it, I was completely sucked into the article […]

It’s about rights

January 26, 2012

So I’ve definitely shown my true colors by explaining my feelings about the Kardashians. I think they are unbelievably beautiful, nice to look at, and oddly entertaining. That all being said, I have felt very slighted by Kim’s marriage. Not that I expected it to be more than your average celebrity marriage. And definitely not that they owe me anything […]
