Winning and Losing

March 3, 2014

Last night on the Oscars, Ellen talked about celebrating the people that didn’t win. A consolation prize for those that were nominated. In the world of Hollywood, just being nominated is probably a pretty significant prize. I, however, come from a world of receiving a trophy for just showing up. And to that notion, I say enoughs enough. From t-ball […]

Dare I say, we’re in a rhythm?!

January 8, 2014

I’ve been known to say that it took me a solid 3-6 months to get the whole baby thing the first time around. It then took me approximately a year (mind you I worked full time so I’d venture to say I was able to avoid handling the balancing act by myself) to manage two kids together. I realize that […]

Over the weekend, our original foursome had an outing. Besides the fact that traveling without a baby is traveling so much lighter, it was special in a way I had forgotten. There is absolutely no way I don’t want this baby in my family. He is the guy that makes my heart feel complete. He is the smile that wakes […]

Violence at Home

July 24, 2013

To smother, or not to smother…that is the question. Did that ring, a.k.a. EXTREME choking hazard, miraculously show up next to the baby’s shoulder because “someone” out of love wanted to decorate their little brother with the finest of jewels or was there a hidden death wish. Further investigation is needed. The love Gabby displays when she is resting her […]

Forever Friends

June 5, 2013

It’s beyond me. Whenever I think I’m starting to understand the relationship, it sinks to a whole new level. Siblings. I listen to my friends who are super close with their siblings and feel such hope in the thought that someday my children will have the chance to experience that closeness. Then I talk to my friends who are constantly […]

Sibling rivalry in its finest!

May 24, 2013

Seeing as I have never had a sibling, the relationship is beyond me. I have certainly been exposed to plenty of friends and family who have had siblings. What I have learned is that sibling rivalry is alive and well at all ages. I have spent times trying really hard to not play my children against each other, but sometimes […]

Our Norman Rockwell Painting

April 26, 2013

In the Norman Rockwell painting I envisioned my family to be, I had my beautiful children aged approximately two years a part. They would grow up with their best friends, i.e. their siblings, in tow. Family events (somehow I imagined them around an X-mas tree although we are Jewish and do not have one) were spent making lasting memories that […]

Girls Night Out

April 18, 2013

Gabby has always been my “right hand man,” or “left hand lady” as the case may be. She and I had an instant bond. Maybe it was because I was able to stay home with her at a young age. Maybe it’s because she’s a girl like me. Or maybe it’s because she has a more mild personality since she’s […]

Two and a Half

December 18, 2012

I’ve described him to people as the biggest and smartest man in the world. As I got older my assessment has changed a bit, maybe because I have gotten taller or he has shrunk. Either way, he is still the smartest man in the world and one of the most special to me – my “Poppy.” I have mentioned a […]

The Art of Competition

November 14, 2012

Drew brings competition to an extreme level. He is so athletically minded that it’s really no surprise but it’s getting out of control. Today he bent my license plate and broke my license plate holder while trying to steam roll Gabby in order to be the first one in the house!!! Whether it’s watching a sporting event or playing a […]
