Rugrats

I admit it, I worry about my kids. Sure everyone worries about their kids to some level. I, however, worry an exorbitant amount. I come by it honestly though. I come from strong lineage of worriers. Of course most of it completely uncalled for but occasionally there is good reason. As I have mentioned before, Gabby has had problems eating […]

Drew is King of the World

August 2, 2011

At some point everyone must learn that the world doesn’t revolve around you. I guess not everyone since I know plenty of adults who haven’t learned this lesson. Let me correct myself, at some point I want my children to learn that the world doesn’t revolve around them. I want them to feel secure that there is someone who has […]

Child-Free Dining

August 1, 2011

Recently people have been blogging, discussing and arguing the topic of having child-free restaurants. I caught up on the issue here… http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/43718876/ns/business-small_business/t/restaurant-says-it-has-heard-enough-bans-kids/ As a parent you can’t help but feel slightly put off by the idea of your children being forbid to dine somewhere. Recently on a trip to the city, we took the train. Immediately after we sat down […]

It was a Heineken-sorta day

July 29, 2011

The good news is that after a long, rainy day inside the house, I didn’t walk out when my husband came home nor did I call my old boss and ask for my job back. It was, however, one of those days that I would like to avoid in the future. I decided after having two long, hectic days sandwiched […]

She Eats!

July 15, 2011

Gabby has had problems eating really since day one. At first it was spitting up to the point where she wasn’t growing appropriately. Then, next came the months of vomiting. Doctors across America (really just a few doctors we have seen in the Chicagoland area) have fought me saying that she is probably just spitting up. I have patiently, and […]

I Will Survive…

July 11, 2011

I survived my first week at home. Survived is an interesting word. That verb used to describe how one handled being deserted on an island is in some ways vastly different than describing caring for ones children. In other ways, however, those experiences are extremely similar. The first half of the week was built on this elation of being home […]

‘Tis the Season

June 28, 2011

Three years ago, June 12, was when I became a mom for the first time. One year ago, June 26, was when I became a mom for the second time. And from before May 1st 2011 (Adam’s birthday), I have been fervently planning and preparing for the season of birthdays. So today, June 27, I’m finally done with this season. […]

Do-Over Please

June 8, 2011

I recently had the opportunity to spend some time with my rugrats alone. And although I can recognize that it’s going to be a work in progress, I’m in dire need of a do-over. My goal is to try and keep the emotion out of our interactions. Of course I want to feel emotional about my children, but I don’t […]

Give a little, get a little

April 13, 2011

So I did it! I successfully went on vacation and left my two kiddos. And believe it or not, I actually had a nice time. I missed them so much, even ventured on the side of obsessed with the amount of times I looked at their pictures and talked about them. The day we left both kids had fevers, were […]

Walk the Line

February 23, 2011

For so long I have thought that my job adds an element of chaos to my life that was expendable. I thought if I didn’t have to work, my life would be so much easier. Yesterday the kids’ school was closed for a teacher institute day. I took off to spend the day with my little rugrats. I had a […]
