Ode to you, jerk face

January 21, 2015

Ode to that lovely person who pointed out that my tantruming daughter on the outdoor picnic bench was bothering HIS breakfast. To THAT I say, I can’t remember a meal where I wasn’t disturbed by a tantruming child. Try living with me. Ode to that lovely person who gave me that terrible stink eye when my daughter had (yet another) tantrum […]

Wake Up Call!!!

January 12, 2015

There is something that has been happening during our weekday mornings that words cannot possibly grasp. I’ll explain some of my emotions: anger, rage, sadness and depression. It usually goes in that cycle too. Thank goodness once I’ve survived and made it to the gym around 9:30, I’m given a dose of endorphins that keeps me going. However, the pain […]

It’s GO Time!!!

January 5, 2015

Bed time, oh bed time…how I have missed you. Between our trip to Costa Rica in the beginning of December to two LONG weeks of winter break, we have spent the better part of December letting everything go…and I mean everything!!!! Happy Monday started with the great breakfast shake down. Gabby has spent the better part of December living off […]

Chapter 3 of Juvenile Delinquency

October 16, 2014

I’m exhausted. And not in that stayed up too late watching trashy tv sorta way, although true. I’m exhausted from dealing with aggressive toddlers. I’m tired of trying to teach someone that barely understands English to be appropriate. I need a MAJOR nap from this chapter. Drew was an insanely aggressive toddler. Maybe it was partially because he was my […]

Food – the enemy

October 8, 2014

I’ve been spoiled. My first born child is the best eater. As a baby, he devoured broccoli. His favorite treats being tomatoes. My biggest concern nutritionally with him has always been how I will be able to sustain my food budget once he’s in high school since he is such an eater!!! Gabby, on the other hand, has always eaten […]

Even Duracell bunnies get tired

September 18, 2014

Long days are nothing new for my eldest. That child has frequently been compared to the Duracell bunny. He keeps going and going… From the point this child gave up his nap at the tender age of three, he fell asleep during the day (maybe) two times. He has never been one of those kids who fell asleep in transit […]

My Cries

September 8, 2014

You know that expression, “falls on deaf ears?” Everything I say “falls on deaf ears.” I’ve developed a threshold of three – I can say something three times before I start to get aggravated. There’s literally nothing in the world I can say once and get results. What’s up with that? “We’re going to a birthday party at Wrigley Field. […]

THE Year (Part 2)

August 29, 2014

“I didn’t have fun at school. I felt left out.” WHAT?!? I’m running up to school and facilitating play at recess. I’m securing placement at the lunch table. Heads are going to roll unless my baby feels safe, secure and happy. Around which time I’ll be blogging that I need better discipline tactics because a happy Drew is usually an […]

Scheduling

August 26, 2014

There are some days where I look at the tasks ahead of me and think, “I can do this!” Today is not one of those days. We are at the place in between here and there. Something’s are starting up – yay school! But something’s aren’t. Trying to get all my ducks in a row is causing my head to […]

Anxiety In a Different Shape

August 13, 2014

Anxiety manifests in many different ways. Stomach aches, headaches, nervous cleaning – I totally understand all of that. What I don’t understand is psycho craziness as a sign of anxiety. Everyone knows that scene with the child wrapped around your leg because they are nervous and shy. When a child acts like a wound up crazy person, most people think […]
