Doing it for the kids

May 13, 2020

As parents, the majority of our focus is on our children and their well-being. Or is it? Is this what we convince ourselves as we allow ourselves wine for dealing with our children? Or is this what we say as we rationalize allowing our kids screen time past what we know is the appropriate amount? Is it possible that despite […]

Five? How did that happen?

December 20, 2017

I blinked and my bonus baby turned five. This time I was going to pay more attention. This time around I was going to celebrate every milestone because this was my last time. Low and behold five years flew by and I feel like I blinked and my baby is no longer a baby. To my dearest Noah, your life […]

Patience is a virtue…that I don’t have

April 26, 2017

It’s like riding a bike…unless you don’t actually know how to in which case it’s more like advanced geometry or something equally as hard. I spent the better part of…toooooo long, trying to get Gabby (my almost 7 year old) to ride a 2 wheeler. After many deep breaths, partially due to the fact that it’s easy to get winded […]

Dear Mom of Multiple Young Children,

April 3, 2017

It gets easier. Too often you run into wise mothers with older (possibly grown) children that tell you to enjoy it because it goes so fast…too fast. Instead you are left feeling even worse. So on top of the juggling you are doing to keep everything going, on top of the run down feeling you constantly have, and on top […]

Drew 2.0

November 30, 2016

Since my first born came into the world after 32 hours of labor, he has been a difficult child. Ironic as it may seem for a child that didn’t want to leave the womb, he has always been resistant. I suggest a trip to the zoo, and he screams that he doesn’t like the zoo. He has spent the better […]

Dear Gabby

June 26, 2016

Six years ago you came into this world in a blink of an eye. Literally…you were born twenty minutes after I ARRIVED at the hospital. That feistiness has carried through these last six years. And although life isn’t always easy, I can very easily slip back into that day you came into this world and changed me forever. You are […]

Dear Drew

June 12, 2016

This may have not been your biggest year when it came to reading, writing and arithmetic but it was by far your biggest year when it came to maturity and compassion. You finally understood the role you have in our family and the power in your leadership role. That doesn’t mean you don’t take the chance to sock your sister […]

Competition Gone Wrong

May 23, 2016

Sports is a language that I don’t speak. Goals with baseball, home runs in basketball, innings, quarters – I don’t understand any of it. When my eldest came out of my body, he came out a sports guru. At the age of 1, he sat through a baseball game eyes wide and in love. Since then, his passion has only […]

Top 15 Things I Want for Mother’s Day

May 7, 2016

Forget flowers and presents, this is what I want for Mother’s Day. I want one day where my kids… 1. Do exactly what I say and never once say NO! (Can you imagine saying “no” when your parents asked you do to something?! I certainly can’t!) 2. Similar to the aforementioned request, when I say “put your shoes on.” PUT […]

Foreign to Me

April 21, 2016

This whole boy thing is completely foreign to me. I never grew up with a brother, I was never forced to do boy things or be exposed to boy interests…at least until my husband came around. Now I find myself in a world of baseball cups (yes those things they wear in the crotch of their baseball pants), action figures, […]
