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.

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.

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 […]

Those of us who haven’t reached celebrity status remind ourselves that even celebrities are human. They put one leg in their pants at a time.

I’m not going to apologize for my desire to buy trash magazines and catch up on celebrity gossip. I realize it’s not the most intellectually stimulating reading material. I also realize that it’s not like I’m busy working on my PhD and I’m normally a more intellectual person. I’m just gonna say, it’s what I like so take it or […]

The Ark

November 3, 2011

This year Drew’s class is raising money for a charity. The first week they did this he wouldn’t give the money I had given him to his teacher. He insisted that he needed more toys, as if the mounds of toys we have scattered around our house are not enough. This made me realize, to reiterate yesterday’s blog, that I […]
