At the gym daycare I was complaining about some Facebook “chain letter” when the 18 year old explained that her mom is always complaining about similar things. She compared me to her middle aged mother. And then I realized that being middle aged is only a term based on how long you actually live. By all intensive purposes, I could […]

My Babies

June 10, 2016

As irony would have it, I spent my children’s last days in second grade and kindergarten hanging out with my friend’s 11 month old. After I bid farewell to my children, I was handed a bag full of diapers (in the midst of potty training my youngest), bottles and formula (after I gleefully celebrated packing my last lunch of the […]

Savor It

August 6, 2014

You know how the first bite of something delicious is so good and you tell yourself that you are going to try to savor each and every bite. Then sometime right before the last bite, you realize that you got caught up in eating it and didn’t truly pay attention to each and every bite and now all you have […]

Over the weekend I pretended that I was in my mid-twenties and spent an evening crammed in with (what felt like) thousands of people drinking watered down drinks while the music was WAY too loud. When did I become an old lady?!?! I distinctly remember thinking that I would never stop liking the bar scene. The dim lighting, the smell […]

First Love

November 6, 2013

There’s something about your first love. That feeling that the whole world could swallow you up but you wouldn’t even notice because you are with that person. The adrenaline rush mixed with a cosmic tie to that person is such an intense feeling, one that might even rival your need for oxygen at that moment. It’s a one of a […]

The Best Part

September 10, 2013

I have frequently thought Gabby got the best part of me. For Drew, I was so wrapped up in the change of being a mom and what that life brought me that I don’t think I enjoyed every second of it the way I should have. With Gabby, I knew what it was like having a baby and I enjoyed […]

Today I drove past the place I first met Adam. If I focus my brain hard enough, I can almost remember that hot, stuffy hallway. That day when those two kids first met was so long ago. I had no idea who I was, let alone where I was going. G-d willing, Adam and I have a long journey ahead […]

The Circle of Life

August 22, 2013

Sometimes I feel like life is a foggy, surreal dream. The sleep deprivation and craze of waking hours doesn’t help the situation. But the largest feeling is that I just can’t believe this is my life, that I am here doing this. I thought I was going to stay fifteen forever. On the cusp of life really starting. And somehow […]

My Boobs are All Mine!

July 18, 2013

After a crazy roller coaster of feelings, I’m just about done nursing Noah. In some ways I feel like celebrating, bring on the champagne!!! In other ways I feel like folding up into the fetal position and bawling. I have waited for 38 weeks of pregnancy and almost seven months with the baby to have my body back. I have […]

Dear Gabby,

June 26, 2013

Happy 3rd birthday to my beautiful, smart, spunky little person. I know this has been a hard and exciting year for you. You had to learn to share your mommy with our new baby, but you have also learned to be a little mommy to our baby. The love and enthusiasm you give to Noah is so sweet and special. […]
