The idea of a loved one developing a disease or illness was always a fear. After having children, the idea was so devastating that I felt that I needed to do all I could to avoid that. There isn’t much control a parent has from avoiding inevitable truths but if there was something I could control, I was going to […]

Booger Situation

September 21, 2011

My first born was the boogery one. Now I’m sure some of you are thinking, “my kid has boogers too.” Wrong. Your kid has nothing compared the mass amount of boogers that flowed out of my son’s nose. I’m not trying to be a one-upper here but never in my life have I seen an amount of boogers like this […]

Is being nervous hereditary?

September 1, 2011

This upcoming Wednesday marks the first day of three year old preschool. And although I have had my fair share of gripes about these last three weeks of no programming, it has been a lot of fun. Maybe it was because I set out for Mission Fun, or maybe it’s because my kids really are a blast. This is clearly […]

Is craziness a symptom of Vertigo?

August 11, 2011

I don’t have an MD, although I’m frequently diagnosing myself and others with a multitude of illnesses. Since Monday I have been having dizzy spells. The most current has lasted about 24 hours and I have temporarily diagnosed myself with Vertigo.

On an airplane, they always tell you to put your oxygen mask on first and then your child’s. It’s counterintuitive since as parents we spend our lives caring for our children first and foremost. The thought that the parents’ oxygen is the priority over the child’s is hard to accept. Today I have been feeling under the weather. When I […]

Gabby + Cows = Not Friends

August 4, 2011

I admit it, I worry about my kids. Sure everyone worries about their kids to some level. I, however, worry an exorbitant amount. I come by it honestly though. I come from strong lineage of worriers. Of course most of it completely uncalled for but occasionally there is good reason. As I have mentioned before, Gabby has had problems eating […]

Xanax Please

July 25, 2011

Recently a local child died in a tragic accident at his overnight camp. The first thought that came to mind was that my kids are never going to overnight camp. I must keep a close eye on my children at all times. At first, the thought of my kids being under my supervision as much of the time as possible […]

The Legacy of Neurosis

March 9, 2011

Over the weekend Drew had a birthday party at a kiddie swimming pool. He was so excited, went running in and fell. He struggled to get up, couldn’t get his head above the water and I almost had a heart attack. I screamed until someone picked him up. It was probably a five second trauma but it left me shaking […]

Breast is Best

February 4, 2011

Prior to having Gabby, I found the whole breastfeeding phenomenon to be strange. I did it with Drew reluctantly for three months because I was committed to trying to give Drew the best of everything. I was thrilled when I finally decided that I had done my duty. I felt uncomfortable with nursing in front of people. I felt that […]

When you leave a coat with the coat check they give you a ticket. When you complete your visit, you give your ticket in exchange for your outerwear. If something were to happen to that jacket in your absence, you would hold the coat check responsible since they were tending to your possession while you were gone. Now multiply that […]
