Tragedy Close to Home

May 10, 2016

Recently there was a woman who was killed driving home with her family from a close vacation spot who was hit by a random bullet. That bullet didn’t have her in mind, but it hit her nonetheless. Her two children will now grow up without a mother and her husband instantly became a widower all because of a random bullet. […]

In a very short time (yes, I have a countdown going) my husband and I will leave our children for 7 days to go on an adult only vacation. Yipppppeeee! In preparation of this grand departure, I have encountered two major challenges. For one, our schedule! I don’t want to toot my own horn but toot toot. How is it […]

Star in the Making

March 27, 2015

Years ago I watched an Olympian accredit her success to her father encouraging her. I remember thinking how I couldn’t imagine ever encouraging my child to do something that would be very difficult to succeed. This past week was “observation” week at the place where Gabby does the majority of her extra-curricular activities. I sat through ballet and jazz, her […]

We’ve got doc on speed dial

April 16, 2014

I never want my kids to be sick. Least of all, I do not like my workout regimen being pushed aside for trips to the doctor (especially on the heels of over-eating at Passover seders). That all being said, there’s something so sweet about a sick little child that seems to revert back to their needy infancy ways. Suddenly my […]

He may not be walking yet but we have most definitely entered the world of TROUBLE!!! Nothing is baby proofed enough for our trouble maker. Every staircase is inviting, every outlet looks lickable and every ledge is climbable. If I thought my life was relaxed and calm before, it’s taken on a WHOLE other level of NOT relaxed and NOT […]

Mom’s Out of Commission

September 25, 2013

Through the course of my life I’ve been cursed with debilitating migraines. At one point, I had to be hospitalized for an entire week because I had an eight week long migraine! I mean, serious stuff with this migraine business. Since I’ve been in the baby making phase of my life, I have only had a few minor tales to […]

I’m Haunted

September 19, 2013

Why is it that bad things happen to good people? That thought haunts my mind. That thought makes me hold on tighter to my kids before they leave my grasp (as if I can protect in my arms). That sentiment makes me beg everyone to drive safely (as if the words alone will keep them safe). Every time I hear […]

Last night I did the unthinkable. I turned off the lights. Um…don’t I do that every night? Yeah, but I don’t usually do that when there’s a disaster of toys and unkempt kitchen everywhere. So either I’m totally exhausted, which I am, or have reached an all time low in the amount I can handle with my children. But somehow […]

Field Trip?!?!?!

June 27, 2013

Today Drew’s camp had their first FIELD TRIP!!! I’ve barely come to terms with swim lessons, and now you are going to throw a field trip at me!!?? There’s two overwhelming thoughts that came to mind. First is that I clearly have to keep him at home. He is not ready for a public outing, on school buses that have […]

Today at the gym an alarm sounded. My heart dropped. My head throbbed. All I could think about were my babies in the kids’ club. Could it be a gunman? A natural disaster? Fortunately everything in there was fine…this time. A rainstorm used to be a pleasant way to spend an afternoon cuddled up watching movies. Now I find myself […]
