Rivalry | mommy's two cents

Rivalry

I do not understand this whole “Sibling Day” business. And no I’m not talking about how there is literally some version of a made up, Hallmark holiday every other day. I’m speaking specifically of this incredibly strange, multi-faceted relationship siblings have. I just don’t get it! For starters, I’m an only child. I grew up in a household where all […]

It’s School, oh baby!!!!

August 26, 2015

You may have heard hooting and hollering across the Chicagoland area today, as it was FINALLY the first day of school. I was tempted to take them last night and wait outside the school but I’m so very fond of our frantic, rushing, scream fests that the school mornings usually consist of. I realize that these feelings are not foreign […]

War Zone!!!

July 27, 2015

If you polled parents with multiple children around the world, I’m sure one of the largest complaints would be fighting. And previous until just recently, I would say the fighting is a nuisance. However, in the last few weeks the fighting in my house has becoming completely intolerable. Gabby is definitely beyond annoying but Drew is aggressive and short tempered. […]

Man’s World

July 6, 2015

It’s a man’s world. Or at least a boy’s world. Gabby is sandwiched between two brothers and most of our friends have boys. Gabby finds herself always in a situation where she is the odd man out and it is painful. It might not be so bad if she could pick up a hockey stick and slide right in with […]

My Little Bestie

September 24, 2014

Since the baby was born, Gabby has turned into a massive handful. It might be attributed to her age, her station in our family or the fact that she feels that like she lost her Mommy with the arrival of the baby (21 months ago!!). Whatever it is, she’s generally the one who gives me the hardest time on a […]

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 […]

Manipulation

July 1, 2014

Drew calls the shots in our family. If he doesn’t like a restaurant, we never eat there again. If he wants to play something, there’s no rest until we are all participating. Gabby has had to find other ways to get her voice heard. Recently, she is the “loudest” by attacking (smothering) Noah. It’s the only real way she knows […]

Sibling Sleepover

June 9, 2014

After one failed friend sleepover attempt, we decided that a brother/sister sleepover was a good test of sleepover prepared-ness. What night better to practice than your first night as a first grader?? Previous to bedtime, I was feeling that ONCE AGAIN sibling rivalry was a little too alive and well at our house. Noah being pulled down by Gabby while […]

Foursome Troubles

May 22, 2014

Nothing brings me greater joy than when we are all together as our fabulous fivesome. I can’t help but feel like every time one of us is away that part of my heart is missing. That being said, there is no greater stress in the world than when my children are together. When Drew has one-on-one attention, he is a […]

Stuck in the Middle

April 21, 2014

What’s the deal with the whole middle child thing? Speaking as an ONLY child, I’m not sure I completely understand family placement issues. The middle child isn’t quite sure where they fit – they aren’t the first born, nor the baby. Duh, that’s because they are in the MIDDLE! That’s their place, that’s their role!! And when that middle child […]
