Sick Day

October 21, 2013

Back in the day when I was gainfully employed, I used to feel a little excitement when my kids would get sick. It’s not that I wanted them to not feel well. It’s that I loved staying home and taking care of them. As a stay at home mom, having a sick kid becomes an extra juggling act. How do […]

Play Dates Revised

October 18, 2013

We’ve recently entered a new world of socialization. The world of play dates. I’m not talking about an arranged gathering of two moms who like each other and force their children to play. I’m not talking about a forced get together with a mom you don’t know that well but your kids like each other. I’m talking about an email […]

Camp – the continual saga

October 16, 2013

It’s October, no better time to start talking about camp! Wait, huh????? I’m no freshmen here. I’ve had a couple rounds of the insanity in talking about June plans in October. But it never ceases to catch me a little off guard. I virtually can’t see past December. I don’t know if we are doing ballet/jazz or hip hop come […]

Calendar Overload

October 14, 2013

My kids have busier social lives than I do. Between play dates, birthday parties and activity overload, they are constantly on the go. The time we have for free play or family fun is few and far between. I spend most of my time as Drew’s social coordinator. Planning the play dates coming here, picking him up at the play […]

So BIG!!!

October 11, 2013

I know I should have been enjoying every minute of infancy, especially with Noah since he’s my last. It was near impossible. Between the sleep deprivation and overwhelming feeling of having a new baby, I found myself wishing away the months until they slept better, ate better or just became more of a person. Then six months hit. With each […]

Its a hard job but somebody’s got to do it

October 9, 2013

There are some days where my day is just too hard. There are some days where the baby doesn’t stop screaming. Is he teething? Tired? Hungry? There are some days where every word out if my toddler’s mouth is said with a WHINE and is met with an hourly temper tantrum like clock work. There are some days where my […]

Top 5 things I have learned going from 1 to 3 kids…

October 8, 2013

1. Germs It’s not that there are less (probably the opposite), it’s that I don’t care as much. Don’t get me wrong, I’m armed with hand sanitizer 24/7 but I’ve let go and come to accept that no matter what I do they are going to be exposed to germs (and it may even be good for them). Frankly I […]

In efforts to free up some space and bring in some extra ca$h, I’ve been purging some of our baby stuff. In many ways I’m happy to be rounding this corner and grateful to be passed the turbulence of having a newborn. In many ways I’m also really sad. I looked at the swing that I am attempting to sell […]

Third Child Syndrome (Part 2)

September 24, 2013

Noah is behind. Not like in that engage social services way. More like the third child sort of way. And so the saga continues… He spent the first seven months of his life on my hip. He’s carted from preschool to kindergarten, from ballet to soccer. If there’s a moment when he is not in his car seat or on […]

On the Playground

August 19, 2013

Today we had a kindergarten play date at the school park in preparation for the big day on Thursday. The single-handed worst thing that could happen in that instance happened. No, he didn’t break an arm. No, he didn’t get in trouble. Worse than all…his feelings were hurt!!!!!!!!!! GASP! We are walking into kindergarten knowing very few people and only […]
