I heart NOW!

March 20, 2012

Last summer, our first summer as “The Trio,” we spent lots of time going to parks and playing outside. By the end of the summer I was really sick of going to parks and playing outside. That may sound absolutely ridiculous because what new stay at home mom wouldn’t bask in beautiful summer days doing those activities?!?! Last summer Gabby […]

Threesomes are WAY easier

March 14, 2012

I remember people telling me that going from no children to one child was the largest life changing jump of all. And although that is true, I feel that that is misleading. It led me to believe that going from one child to two children was a piece of cake. Not the case. Looking back on Drew being an only […]

He’s been paroled

March 12, 2012

I’ve dedicated a lot of time and energy to being disappointed when my toddler acts like a toddler. I’m not talking about the normal silliness that comes with being 18 months and onward. I’m talking about the behavioral challenges that come with a little boy who is rambunctious, precocious, and doesn’t handle change well at all! I think it was […]

Who’s doing the heavy lifting?

March 8, 2012

At Drew’s sports class, 3 out of the 6 kids have nannies with them. Having a nanny was something we had considered when I was working. The thought of having someone care for the kids and also help me with some of the house work seemed like it might make the challenges of being a working mom a little easier. […]

Uniform Up!

March 5, 2012

I have learned early on in my parenting years that you have to pick and choose your fights. Pretty early on I decided that wardrobe was not one of the hills I wanted to die on. However, I’m reconsidering that decision… My eyeballs literally hurt. Seeing Drew in red and black is not only getting old, but getting a little […]

DeLorean Needed!!!

March 2, 2012

There’s something about becoming a parent for the first time. Recently a few friends of mine have become first time parents and I’m completely and totally jealous of them. I’m not jealous of the lack of sleep, the nervousness of learning how to handle an infant and I’m not jealous of being a Human vending machine for an infant. I […]

Drew’s a Baller!!!!

February 29, 2012

Drew’s obsession with sports is something he wears on his sleeve. Quite literally actually since he wears his jerseys every day of his life. And although it is something I find hard to relate to at times, I have to embrace the fact that it is so clearly a self-motivated passion. Drew’s Coach from sports class recently mentioned how Drew […]

What’s with fine motor skills?

February 16, 2012

Drew has definitely had his fair share of behavioral challenges but for the most part he has been consistently ahead of the curve. He rolled over at 10 weeks, he peed on the potty for the first time at 18 months, he plays baseball like a 5 year old, etc. So although I may sound like a bragging mom, I […]

Girly Girl

February 7, 2012

I didn’t have a strong male influence in my life so when I was first told I was having a boy I was excited but was really unsure with what you do with a boy. Fortunately Drew has educated me as we’ve gone. I am now aware of sports players I never knew existed. In some ways I’m more comfortable […]

Who’s a good boy???

February 2, 2012

Drew is on a roll. Stickers left and right, presents rewarded, opportunities available, etc etc. Now of course we have to raise the bar, make the stakes a little steeper. And I get the jist and feel good about our progress but… The real world doesn’t strategize an incentive program for those that don’t get it. When he goes to […]
