New baby (baby #1) cries, rush to his side…a second longer of crying is a second longer he feels abandoned. My poor baby. New baby (baby #2) cries, quickly pick her up…G-d forbid she wake up my crazy toddler. My poor first born. New baby (baby #3) cries, continue to sleep because I might be able to get an extra […]

Average Crazy 4 Year Old Boys

November 12, 2012

I had a rare opportunity today to go to Drew’s basketball class without my partner in crime, a.k.a. Gabby. It was especially nice because it allowed for me to actually watch the class, cheer Drew on and take pictures. But I also came to a very interesting conclusion, not too far off of the evidence of conferences, that Drew isn’t […]

And the medal goes to…

November 5, 2012

He did it! My amazing husband, the best father in the world, the man who at one point couldn’t run a mile let alone nine of them, did what some would say was the impossible! He finished the Hot Chocolate 15k in record time!! And although we took this opportunity to really do something for Dad, make a weekend out […]

Drew Day

October 26, 2012

Fridays mark an important holiday in our house…Drew Day. Since my mom retired, she picks him up from school on Fridays and they do an activity. It’s wonderful for me because it allows me a chance to do my class with Gabby, run errands or schedule an age appropriate play date, and then actually have some alone time while Gabby […]

The Grandparent Effect

October 3, 2012

As if I needed a reminder to the heavy lifting necessary in managing a child who has spent the weekend with his grandparents where “no” was infrequently part of their vocabulary, Drew had a temper tantrum for the books. Let me set the scene… Last week Drew’s grandparents took him to his taekwondo class. At the fine establishment is a […]

It’s supposed to be fun

September 19, 2012

It’s not going as anticipated. It’s not that the skill set isn’t there…exactly. Drew clearly has a passion, or obsession, for baseball which he would happily practice for hours. Team sports, team engagement, strategy of a game like soccer is a whole different ball game. Drew doesn’t quite realize how very frustrating it is to watch his games, last Sunday […]

What went awry?

June 21, 2012

I’ve decided that I should never run errands with my kids again. Nothing pretty ever comes out of it. Even if it starts out strong with a nice solid finish and a reward at the end, it usually gets ugly at some point or another. It’s possible that today’s trip, in particular, was doomed from the get go. I had […]

JU-V Here We Come!

May 23, 2012

Beware I’m about to have a pity party for myself and you, my readers, are invited to attend. Today Gabby got kicked out of the gym kids’ club for aggressive behavior. And certainly this came at no surprise since she had been getting bad reports, my disgust over the circumstance was not any less. Clearly I have not been very […]

I’m calling off birthdays!!!!!!!

May 4, 2012

This last week was spent full of birthday celebrations. Adam’s birthday makes a Polish wedding look like a short celebration. And although I’m grateful to put this eating out to an end, its been a ton of fun despite one minor (well major issue). All year long, Drew celebrates a variety of different people’s birthdays. Whenever we start discussing the […]

A House Divided

April 26, 2012

It has started. Somewhere, somehow I thought it could be different. Or maybe I just blocked it out. It’s hard not to get excited at the thought of winter turning to spring and eventually leading to summer. It’s easy to get caught up in everything that means…except when it comes to baseball. We have a mixed marriage. And in some […]
