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 […]

My kid better be the next Michael Jordan, Bo Jackson or some multi-sport playing superstar. Otherwise this chaos was all for nothing. Literally nothing because it’s certainly not for the fun of the game. What a ridiculous thought that would be. Spring has brought us to a four sport juncture. We have almost accidentally, because no parent would purposefully bring […]

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 […]

We spent what felt like a lifetime listening to Elmo serenade Drew. The minute we were able to transition out of that stage, we didn’t look back. We looked high and low for a minivan WITHOUT a dvd player, we cringed at the mere mention of any type of audio (or visual for that matter). Rather, we jammed out to […]

Best Behavior

February 10, 2014

I’m led to believe that my kids actually behave when I’m not around. Although, I always have the worry that perhaps the caregiver doesn’t completely want to divulge. It’s just hard to believe that my children could have so many behavioral issues when they are around me and essentially turn into different people once I’m gone. And if that is […]

Gripes Galore!

February 5, 2014

I have many gripes. There are many things in our day to day life that cause me to bitch and moan. I think the one to take the cake, win the prize and be the worst thing about living with these scoundrels would be trying to get out of the door. No Gabby, it is not appropriate to go out […]

Today was one of those days that test you as a parent. The kind of day where an hour at the gym most definitely cannot sustain you. The kind of day where your five minute shower is not the oasis that keeps you going. The kind of day where gouging out your eyes while stomping on the heart that was […]

Picture Perfect…yet again

January 7, 2014

I’d like to say I’m starting out the year more positive and more consistent. But then if I said that I would fail on both occasions. Positive…um not this blog. Consistent…I think this is my first time blogging in 2014. Doh! Good news (maybe I am positive after all) is that I am in fact blogging and even better news […]

Picture Perfect

November 13, 2013

Sometimes I forget that just because something looks Facebook perfect, doesn’t mean that everything is as it seems. Everyone knows that family on Facebook that just looks perfect. The kids always smile perfectly, everyone’s clothes are always cute and perfectly well coordinated, posts sound like life is pretty damn good. Just because it appears that way, doesn’t mean that is […]

My wonderful, extremely missing in action these days since he took a job in Wisconsin, husband asked to golf on Saturday. On my day “off”???? The nerve… I expect evenings where I can jet from the family chaos and occasionally have a meal with other people where there are conversations and slow consumption of food. It’s not like this happens […]
