Bah Humbug

December 7, 2015

Every year I blog about how difficult my children make the season of giving. Despite the fact that they are incredibly spoiled and often ungrateful, their behavior last night might have taken the cake to all previous situations in a gift giving/receiving circumstance. I can make countless excuses why – they were excited, they were anxious, perhaps we didn’t transition […]

Post-Vacation Mama

October 28, 2015

It took me exactly one week and a day to reach the place of pre-vacation. By that I mean, it took me a week and a day to reach the point of no patience, complete and utter disregard for the nonstop shenanigans. Frankly I see that as success. The problem begs that I would have to leave my children for […]

My Religion

September 24, 2015

Yesterday was the holiest day in a Jewish person’s year. It was the day of atonement where we fast and apologize for all the mistakes we have made yearlong. Spending my day hungry, thirsty and headachey, I spent most of the day doing what I always do – beating down on myself. “I’m sorry for not being a better mother […]

Say a little prayer for me…

September 8, 2015

I have always traveled with an entourage. I’m not talking about my hair dresser or anyone named Turtle. Rather, my mom and grandparents have been at everything in my life big or small or in between. My biggest cheerleaders and there to support me through it all. Having children didn’t change that, just made my entourage larger. All three of […]

Career Rollercoaster

February 24, 2015

Like a bow plays the violin or better yet a well oiled machine – that’s generally speaking how Adam and I co-parent. That doesn’t mean there aren’t times where we disagree – like signing Drew up for traveling baseball tryouts or adding five minutes to a punishment. But we support each other and don’t waiver in front of our monsters. […]

Two vs Three (the continual saga)

July 28, 2014

Fact: it’s easier to take care of two kids. Since my boys are on the most amazing baseball trip of a lifetime, I have been holding down the fort with my other two. The two I’ve been caring for are the least independent, most difficult together kids. Even so, balancing two kids is so much easier. I always wanted three […]

Foursome Troubles

May 22, 2014

Nothing brings me greater joy than when we are all together as our fabulous fivesome. I can’t help but feel like every time one of us is away that part of my heart is missing. That being said, there is no greater stress in the world than when my children are together. When Drew has one-on-one attention, he is a […]

Adults only VACATION!!!!!!!

April 30, 2014

In two days I am going on vacation ALONE with my husband!!!!! I’m so unbelievably excited, words cannot express. However, I am slightly (well a tad more than slightly) concerned about the well being of my parents, the unsuspecting caregivers to my monsters. I’m concerned about the abuse, the physical endurance, and the long hours necessary to keep this ship […]

Chop Liver

March 24, 2014

It’s an age old story – Dad commutes to California during the week, Dad is the children’s hero upon return. And you know what?! I’m getting pretty sick of it! I am their slave during the week. Literally slave. Definition of slave is a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them or to […]

Living with Three (the saga continues)

March 21, 2014

I by no means have my act together. I’d venture to say that I have my act together more than I previously have. An old sage (actually my friend who has three kids older than mine) told me that I was in the trenches and in two years I would get my life (sorta) back. I think I’m halfway there. […]
