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 […]

Breast is Best

February 4, 2011

Prior to having Gabby, I found the whole breastfeeding phenomenon to be strange. I did it with Drew reluctantly for three months because I was committed to trying to give Drew the best of everything. I was thrilled when I finally decided that I had done my duty. I felt uncomfortable with nursing in front of people. I felt that […]

State of the Union

January 26, 2011

Although the state of the union is pretty bleak, the president found a way to make it sound uplifting and promising. I’m trying to do the same. I’m focusing on the fact that I like my job, not that I hate working five days a week. I’m able to get everything in my life done, but I’m not going to […]

Sanity? Are you out there?

November 17, 2010

There are some days that just start off as “one of those days.” Lately it seems like most days follow that story. Days where the morning consists of temper tantrum after temper tantrum, spit up on your silk blouse as you are walking out the door, coffee spilled in the interior of your car, and the list goes on. I […]

Happy Halloween!

November 3, 2010

Halloween has followed me through many different stages of my life. First it was the thrill of trick or treating and getting candy. Then being able to trick or treat by myself. Next were the years of haunted houses and Fright Fest since I was too old to participate in the kid activities. And then the college years were I […]

The Best You Can Be

October 19, 2010

Priorities are funny things. Obviously my children are my number one priority. There are times though that it gets complicated. Is spending an hour doing bath and bedtime rituals a priority over curriculum night at my two year olds school? It’s a dilemma I’m always faced with. I want to make sure that I tend to all the behind the […]

In Need of Floaties

October 13, 2010

My Sunday night fortune read something like…a routine may give you the structure you need, yet the structure may leave you exhausted. I’m not sure that was a fortune or just a truth. Going back to work has had some positives. For one, we are getting into a groove of being a four-person family. I am back to preparing dinners, […]

Thank Goodness for Video Monitors

September 28, 2010

The life cycle to raising a child starts with them growing inside you and going everywhere with you. Once they emerge, they take “baby step” progressions towards becoming an independent, capable person. If you do things right, each step in the rearing of your children is a step away from you, starting with their immersion into the world. Gabriela took […]

Who was the one that really went under the knife?

June 3, 2010

This precious little being comes into the world so perfect, innocent and untouched by the world’s harsh realities. Then life runs it’s course and your child is traumatized, made to suffer through pain and swallowed up by the ugly world. Yesterday Drew was gleefully running around outside and I was suffering from inner tumult. I knew that today we would […]

Drew Triumphs!!!

July 22, 2009

Big news, Drew did it! He walked across the room!! Not just once…but back and forth! It was amazing, to see this child blossom and reach yet another milestone. My biggest fear had been that I would miss it. I heard stories about children reaching milestones like that at daycare with people who’s job it is to watch your kid. […]
