Damn you nice weather!!!

June 11, 2013

Ah, the swimming pool…my arch nemesis. We meet again. The agony that I go through over the swimming pool keeps evolving with each summer. Now I am faced with a beautiful day, kids with no schedules and a free pool at my disposal. What’s a girl to do?!? Last year I was shaking in my boots, or flip flops, over […]

The Leash

April 24, 2013

Yesterday we got a Parents Manual to Drew’s camp in the mail. Panic rose over me from the tips of my hair to the bottom of my feet. Was it the thought of packing lunches five days a week? I do despise packing lunches but that wasn’t it. Was it picking him up at 2:45 during Gabby’s naptime? Doesn’t exactly […]

End of Innocence

April 22, 2013

My mom talks about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy as an end of their innocence. After that point, things were never the same. When my generation was born, we were born into a world where Presidents, civil rights leaders and musicians were gunned down and killed. We were never as innocent as our parents. In our lifetime, schools […]

Is my belly big enough to house three children?

April 16, 2013

Most mothers worry while they are pregnant. Have they felt the baby kick in awhile? Will everything come back alright from the test they took? How will the delivery go for both parties? In so many ways, pregnancy is one of the few times that you can really protect your children. You don’t have to worry as much about the […]

Crazy People on the Loose!

March 13, 2013

Not sure if you got the memo, but 4-1/2 and 2-1/2 year olds are big kids. They can constantly “I do myself” or “I walk myself.” In all do fairness, Drew doesn’t talk like that AND he is getting a little large for me to pick him up, let alone squeeze his long legs into the front of a shopping […]

Snow Day

March 5, 2013

It wasn’t too long ago where I was like all these other people celebrating a snow day. A snow day meant either I was going to have some time to rest and catch up on my DVR. Or it meant that we had some unexpected family time. Nowadays it means neither of those things. Days over in my country are […]

Breaking Point

January 23, 2013

Five weeks apparently is my threshold. It’s hard to remember where my breaking point was with each of my other babies. For Drew, I remember leaving my six week checkup and crying so hysterically my mom left work and demanded I take a much needed nap. For Gabby, my memories are much cheerier but she was a good sleeper from […]

I have had two summer babies. And the biggest drawback with a summer baby is the fact that you don’t want to be cooped up in the house on a gorgeous day. Or the fact that you can’t swim, which is more annoying when you have one child that is swimming with his dad and having a blast. Having a […]

Generally I’m a very decisive person. Plus, I’m totally a planner. Those two together usually mean that my mind is made up long before I even need to have my mind made up. It feels like months since I blogged about “What’s in a Name?” I’d like to say the progress has been great since that blog…but I’d be lying. […]

Just the 4 of Us

October 22, 2012

The earth has shifted its axle or in a state of extreme irony, my life seems to have gotten dramatically easier. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not lounging on the couch more, there isn’t less laundry to do, and my day does not consist of popping bom boms. It’s just that we are in such a rhythm that everything seems […]
