I’ve been feeling under the weather, so I went to the doc. He asked me if I ever feel stressed. WHAT?! Is it possible to NOT feel stressed? Isn’t stress a constant? It’s like someone asking if it’s ever windy in Chicago. In order for a given day to run smoothly, I must rally the troops, take inventory on what […]

New Job!!!

April 11, 2013

When my kids are more grown up and I decide to re-enter the workforce, I think I know exactly what my new career should be – a negotiator. You know kinda like that movie from the 90s with Kevin Spacey and Samuel Jackson. Although I probably will be so good at that job that I will have to train fellow […]

We took a nonstop flight

March 28, 2013

Some people take their kids on lavish vacations. Not I. I take my kids to Lifetime Fitness Club. Although we are certainly not soaking up any rays, I’d venture to say that they seem to be incredibly content. The thrill of pressing the elevator button seems to excite them each and every day. And if a temper tantrum/crying upon mere […]

Am I failing?

March 20, 2013

She might as well have said that I’m starving my child. Tears started streaming down my face and no amount of blinks could hold back the disaster I was about to become. She asked if I had family to lean on…um, I’m leaning on them about as much as humanly possible and I still can’t pull this off!!! Those were […]

Independent, Crazy Kid in the Making

March 15, 2013

For awhile, Noah’s sole existence was to eat, sleep and scream. I wouldn’t exactly say that we are out of those stages but we have added smiling into the mix. It, unfortunately, doesn’t take up enough of the day quite yet. But it’s there! And it couldn’t come sooner, as far as I’m concerned. Between lack of sleep, constant screams […]

Ray of Sunshine

March 12, 2013

Life is different. It’s gonna be different forever. Yet this phase that we are at, this floundering, disastrous state is (I hope) temporary. I totally get that. Yet sometimes there’s a ray of sunshine in the midst of it that almost makes me ready to go back into the battle field. It used to be a night out on the […]

Maternity Leave

January 7, 2013

With my last two babies, I was gainfully employed and afforded the opportunity for a three month maternity leave. Of course after my wonderful maternity leave, I had the agony of going back to work. And no matter how invested you are in your job, which I was, and how committed you are to going back, which I also was, […]

9:15 Therapy Sessions

October 17, 2012

Tuesday mornings have met mania on a whole other level separate from the chaos Monday through Friday usually brings. It is the only time available for my most important type of therapy, a.k.a. Yoga with Samantha. That term, “it takes a village,” comes into full force here. Between the consolidation of four year olds to one mom and one mom […]

Taxi Service

September 27, 2012

Change my license plates and call me Mommy’s Taxi. I have entered a new phase in parenthood, I’m in the carpooling business!!! Other than the nerves associated with letting your kid go, and don’t get me wrong it’s not exactly easy for me, it’s great! Drew’s school friend is taking a sports class with him and the timing is hard […]

Mommy’s Retreat

September 6, 2012

I have one blissful retreat during the day. It has taken awhile for me to get to the place where I can have this break. But everyday I enjoy it so much. It sustains me. Our day consists of a rather hectic morning, dash to school, gym, dash back to school, crazy lunchtime and then free play until nap and […]
