Rugrats

Ten months old. When my other two were seventeen months old, they were practically running marathons. So you can imagine how I felt when Early Intervention came and assessed Noah’s physical abilities at a ten month old range. It’s a good thing that Noah isn’t my first because I probably would require hospitalization from hearing that. At this point, I […]

Today’s Ideals

May 20, 2014

Recently someone asked me what my thoughts were on organic foods and television exposure with kids. My answer was short – where I started and where I am now are two separate places. What a perfect blog topic! You spend nine months (or forty weeks as the case may be) with this alien growing inside you. It’s an alien because […]

Star of the Universe

May 15, 2014

Drew is “Star of the Week” at school. He recently remarked that he wanted this week to never end. Who is this kid kidding, he’s star of the universe in our house. It’s Drew’s world that he sometimes lets us be a part of. And he has the nerve to say he always wants to be star of the week???? […]

Mean Girl

May 14, 2014

There’s no denying my eldest is difficult. But recently it’s been the middle one who’s causing my gray hairs. As much as I wanted a girl, I think that it might in part be her gender that is making her so very hard these days. The other day I brought Gabby to the library with her friend. While we were […]

Worth It?

May 12, 2014

I had a great Mother’s Day. Was it because my children abstained from temper tantrums? Absolutely not. Was it because my children didn’t fight once? Certainly not. Was it because the day was void of responsibility? Impossible. It was because I had realistic expectations. Last year I practically had my own temper tantrum. On a day dedicated to mothers, how […]

Does It Get Better? By Lisa Seidenberg

May 5, 2014

As I approach the eve of my son turning 6 months tomorrow I’m filled with a sense of awe and pride by how far we’ve come. It amazes me that it’s been 6 months since I heard his piercing wail for the first time while grinning ear to ear at my husband. Eyes locked in acknowledgement that our lives would […]

Adults only VACATION!!!!!!!

April 30, 2014

In two days I am going on vacation ALONE with my husband!!!!! I’m so unbelievably excited, words cannot express. However, I am slightly (well a tad more than slightly) concerned about the well being of my parents, the unsuspecting caregivers to my monsters. I’m concerned about the abuse, the physical endurance, and the long hours necessary to keep this ship […]

Morning Hell

April 25, 2014

My yoga teacher once mentioned that some people believe that each person has a finite number of breaths. If that’s the case, I have wasted too many on deaf ears!!! Thank goodness my children aren’t literally but I’d venture to say that deaf children are more responsive to their mother’s cries. I could record “put your shoes and coat on” […]

Drew’s World

April 24, 2014

Remember those days with your first born where you spent hours at home allowing for that child to nap, preparing for their nap, transitioning them from their nap. Well those days are gone…long gone. The sad thing is that 2 out of 3 children would benefit from our crew staying home and actually observing a traditional nap time. Putting aside […]

Stuck in the Middle

April 21, 2014

What’s the deal with the whole middle child thing? Speaking as an ONLY child, I’m not sure I completely understand family placement issues. The middle child isn’t quite sure where they fit – they aren’t the first born, nor the baby. Duh, that’s because they are in the MIDDLE! That’s their place, that’s their role!! And when that middle child […]
