What went awry?

June 21, 2012

I’ve decided that I should never run errands with my kids again. Nothing pretty ever comes out of it. Even if it starts out strong with a nice solid finish and a reward at the end, it usually gets ugly at some point or another. It’s possible that today’s trip, in particular, was doomed from the get go. I had […]

Spotlight

June 20, 2012

Today Gabby and I met “DaDa” for lunch. Gabby having the undivided attention of both of her parents is almost an unrecognizable Gabby. This reiterated our plans for her upcoming birthday next Tuesday. At first I was undecided about what to do to celebrate Gabby’s birthday. She rarely, if ever, has both of her parents doting on her. It seems […]

Camp here we come!

June 18, 2012

We all survived the birthday extravaganza and managed to have fun! Quite a feat for me considering I can easily get so worked up in the details and managing the party, that I forget to enjoy myself. Most of the party was pretty low maintenance while it was going on, I had very attentive helpers and it all seemed to […]

Dear Drew,

June 12, 2012

You have always been a crazy, wild guy from the first moment you emerged into this world. The energy and passion you have for life is unlike anything. From the moment you could focus on a baseball, you haven’t taken your eye off of the prize. You were the only one-year old who was glued to his seat for all […]

My first baby is turning 4

June 11, 2012

Tomorrow my first baby turns four. Four years ago I became a mom for the first time. Four years ago I fell in the most painful, rewarding love of my life. Four years ago I became a completely different person, an unrecognizable person, overnight. Four years ago my life changed in ways I could have never anticipated. I always love […]

BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!

June 6, 2012

Two weeks ago there was angst and agony at the mere thought of the two week break in between school and camp. I’d be lying if I said it was the first time I felt this level of anxiety, but it seems to come a couple weeks before every break. We are all such creatures of our schedule that the […]

Young Love

June 4, 2012

When I was in preschool I had a “boyfriend.” I very vividly remember him coming to my birthday party and giving me a snowman necklace. Maybe I’m just materialistic and loved the necklace, or maybe it was just the first time I experienced the rush of young love. And so my boy craziness started. Not that my love life was […]

A Relaxing Day at the Pool

May 29, 2012

I lived to tell the tale which in and of itself is a feat. It’s not unusual for a mom to take her children to the pool. And most probably take it all in their stride…la la la la la we’re going to the pool. Most doesn’t mean me. If I’ve proved nothing in my blogs is that I’m a […]

Teacher Appreciation

May 24, 2012

As our school days are numbered, there is a sadness that is settling over me that is reminiscent to the last two years of Drew’s education. Just before Drew turned two, we switched schools. The teachers he had at his first school were supposedly going to follow him to the upcoming year too. Our departure from that school was filled […]

JU-V Here We Come!

May 23, 2012

Beware I’m about to have a pity party for myself and you, my readers, are invited to attend. Today Gabby got kicked out of the gym kids’ club for aggressive behavior. And certainly this came at no surprise since she had been getting bad reports, my disgust over the circumstance was not any less. Clearly I have not been very […]
