Rugrats

Dear Drew,

June 12, 2013

The other day you asked me why I am so mean to you, it made me think. Sophomore year of college I was struggling to get around without a car. When I talked to my mom about it and how my high school car wouldn’t work going back and forth, she bought me a new car. I was so surprised […]

The Graduate

May 31, 2013

There was no pomp and circumstance. There was no chinsy robe or anything. He wore a cute paper hat that looked like a cap but no tassel. Yet, he’s still a graduate. As I explained when we went to his first orientation into kindergarten, I wasn’t feeling very sad about the whole thing. He goes to two and a half […]

Inner Monsters

May 21, 2013

How is it that a cute, loving little person can turn into a wicked beast within two seconds flat? Something…let’s say like receiving the opportunity of flushing the toilet, can be so upsetting to them that they can turn into something so fierce and ferocious that they almost become unrecognizable? Do you become the parent who tries pleading. Please “so […]

A Picture Says a Million Words…part II

May 13, 2013

I had high hopes for Mother’s Day. High hopes for a Mother’s Day that doesn’t exist for me…yet at least. I had hopes for a day without temper tantrums. I had visions of a day where only kind words were sent my way. I dreamt up a day where crabbiness was only a mythological thing that was in story books. […]

Kindy Roundup

May 9, 2013

Today is “Kindy Roundup.” It’s our first introduction to kindergarten. Rumor has it, kindergarten is kinda a big deal. When my thoughts of quitting my job came into play, I kept obsessing over the fact that I only have the first five years of their lives. The first five years are when they only want/need you. After that they are […]

It was a RED kinda day!

May 8, 2013

Yesterday Drew’s behavior was on “red” (a scale where behavior is rated from green, yellow to red). Although it’s not the first time and probably won’t be the last, you can imagine my delight. After my line of interrogation fell on deaf ears, I decided to march into school and demand an explanation (or walk in with my tail between […]

Revised Cinderella

May 3, 2013

Two and a half years of training Gabby to be my little princess (or “ya-ya” as the case may be) has done me well. And low and behold she is a card carrying member of the Princess Club. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t over think it…just a bit. Gabby’s biggest obsession has been for Cinderella, a fine choice […]

Bedtime Agony

April 30, 2013

Bedtime used to be a science. Twenty minutes – pjs, teeth brushing, face washing, stories and sleep. Easy as that. Until now… Everyone who knows anything about rearing children knows that kids thrive on routine. If you have a series of activities that prepare them for the winding down that comes with bedtime, it will be a smooth transition to […]

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 […]
