THE Year

August 15, 2014

This is THE year. This is the really defining point where Drew shows if he is just an immature, young boy who’s gonna follow mainstream schooling or not. I have always said that first grade is going to be the tell all. This is the first year of full day school. Sure, he did enrichment in the past to extend […]

Minus Four

March 11, 2014

This week Drew received a worksheet that showed he scored minus four on his ability to assess sight words. Some parents may have shredded the sheet and not looked back. Other parents might have sat him down and studied with him. Not I. Not this Supermom. I taped up that sheet on our garage door (where I tape up sight […]

I have had a love/hate relationship with technology when it has come to my kids. I love it when it “babysits ” my kids at 6am allowing for some extra snooze. I hate it when my son has his nose buried so deep in the iPad that it takes me several days to dig him out. Upon my first tour […]

Music Man

January 14, 2014

As much as I detest crawling and the stage where the outlet becomes so exciting that no matter how many times an authority figure pulls the child away from it, they find their way back. There are many things about this same stage that I absolutely love. One of the major milestones my children have each progressed through, was music […]

“To Do” List

October 7, 2013

I was totally going to be the PTO lady. I dreamed of being the class mom. Ok maybe I didn’t exactly dream about it but it was definitely one of those things that was on my “to do” list. I’d even go so far as to say that it bothered me, as a working mom, that I couldn’t do that […]

Oh Preschool

November 8, 2012

I have finished the last of my tours of preschools. I have now been exposed to four different preschools. Each one has their own strengths and weaknesses. So now I believe it should be decision time… Maybe it’s the fact that I’m super preggers and have not felt especially decisive during these 32 weeks of pregnancy. Maybe it’s the fact […]

So much of those early weeks, months, years of your children’s lives are about milestones. First time they rolled over, first time they crawled, first time they walked, etc. And when parents get together it’s easy to get caught up in what your child has or has not done. Every parent knows of some instance they have been in where […]

Sins: An immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law. Definitely a four year old definition! Tonight at sundown starts the holiest of Jewish holidays, Yom Kippur. From my understanding, Rosh Hashana is the Jewish New Year and exactly a certain amount of days later starts Yom Kippur where G-d takes out his book and decides who will […]

Bring on the Details!

September 4, 2012

“Good.” “Yes.” “No.” Well that sums up Drew’s first day of school! The anticipation beforehand was in wearing his new super cool backpack. Once the thrill of that was over, the dread set in. It’s interesting because every time we spoke about it, he didn’t seem to think twice about it. He’s only been away from the establishment for two […]

What a difference a year makes! (The summer edition)

August 7, 2012

I can’t help but reflect back to where I was a year ago. After the long, hard decision to quit my job and stay home, I had made it through July (my first month as a stay at home mom). And although I was getting into a groove, most of my contacts were not going to be around in the […]
