In efforts to free up some space and bring in some extra ca$h, I’ve been purging some of our baby stuff. In many ways I’m happy to be rounding this corner and grateful to be passed the turbulence of having a newborn. In many ways I’m also really sad. I looked at the swing that I am attempting to sell […]

I had a friend who’s house growing up was booming! Booming in the sense that people were coming and going, people were shouting, phones were ringing. It was an exceptionally lively house full of boatloads of kids and constant action. It was a household that defined family to me. My friend liked to escape her booming household to the tranquil […]

A WEEK?!?!

August 7, 2013

Next week I am going to do the unthinkable. I am going to forgo the gym for some family quality time. It is our only full week without camp or school, so I decided to take the time to participate in some summer fun activities. I’d like to say it’s because I am SUCH a good mom that I am […]

Vacation 2013 Wrap Up

July 9, 2013

Well, we survived our first family of five vacation! We packed especially light… Manuevered the airport seamlessly… Took in scenic views… We spent lazy mornings in bed… We spent days being pampered… And constantly got along… There were tons of opportunities to capture my beautiful family of five… All in all, though, we had a great time and I had […]

Hitting the Road

July 2, 2013

Tomorrow I am doing the unthinkable. I’m providing a whole plane full of people a reason to use birth control. I am taking three children on an airplane!!! I’m excited to get away from the craziness of our real life. It’s not that taking three kids who completely and totally thrive on routine and their comfort zone world isn’t crazy. […]

In a state of mourning

June 7, 2013

When my husband came home after his interview, he had an extra bounce in his step. He was excited in a way that I hadn’t seen in a long time. I felt a huge lump in the back of my throat, similar to the one I have today. This last week Adam stayed home, he is in between his old […]

The Third

May 29, 2013

It was bound to happen. I guess it could’ve been worse? It wasn’t like I forgot him in a hot car or something really dangerous. He was left in good hands, but it’s the fact that I totally 100% forgot! At Drew’s t-ball game, Gabby booked it to the park. Despite efforts to scream for her to stop, she continued […]

The Return of Snow Days

May 14, 2013

The worst part of Adam working so close to home, besides the difficulty in maintaining a “relationship” with the gardener ;), was that he never could have a snow day. You may remember how challenging I found our recent day stranded at home due to the snow. Adam is leaving his employment of seventeen years! He was contacted by a […]

A Picture Says a Million Words…part II

May 13, 2013

I had high hopes for Mother’s Day. High hopes for a Mother’s Day that doesn’t exist for me…yet at least. I had hopes for a day without temper tantrums. I had visions of a day where only kind words were sent my way. I dreamt up a day where crabbiness was only a mythological thing that was in story books. […]

Dear Adam,

May 1, 2013

Sometimes it feels like I’m in the trenches of war. I’m barricaded by the bomb strike ahead, I’m under siege by the machine guns at my right and the sniper is sneaking up on me at the left. And in the midst of it all, I see a hand. A hand that is shaking just as much as mine. A […]
