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 […]

My kid better be the next Michael Jordan, Bo Jackson or some multi-sport playing superstar. Otherwise this chaos was all for nothing. Literally nothing because it’s certainly not for the fun of the game. What a ridiculous thought that would be. Spring has brought us to a four sport juncture. We have almost accidentally, because no parent would purposefully bring […]

He may not be walking yet but we have most definitely entered the world of TROUBLE!!! Nothing is baby proofed enough for our trouble maker. Every staircase is inviting, every outlet looks lickable and every ledge is climbable. If I thought my life was relaxed and calm before, it’s taken on a WHOLE other level of NOT relaxed and NOT […]

Would it kill the northwest suburbs to get on the same page with spring break?! You mean to tell me that the difference of a week changes the district plans in a colossal way??? I think not. This week is Gabby’s preschool spring break and next week is Drew’s kindergarten spring break. I guess that’ll teach me not to send […]

Third Child Issues!!!

March 18, 2014

Noah is 15 months on Thursday and completely and totally not walking. Until about a week ago I would say that he wasn’t even close to walking but the last week he’s made some real “strides” 😉 Everyone I talk to is quick to remind me that with walking comes running. Am I sure that I want him to be […]

Jerks, I tell you!!!

March 13, 2014

Sometimes my kids can be real jerks. Not just to me, but to other people. I expect them to be jerky towards me but I don’t expect them to be jerky towards nice people walking by, family members that love them or acquaintances that I’d like them to be nice to. It’s not like I’m expecting them to be politicians […]

We spent what felt like a lifetime listening to Elmo serenade Drew. The minute we were able to transition out of that stage, we didn’t look back. We looked high and low for a minivan WITHOUT a dvd player, we cringed at the mere mention of any type of audio (or visual for that matter). Rather, we jammed out to […]

Winning and Losing

March 3, 2014

Last night on the Oscars, Ellen talked about celebrating the people that didn’t win. A consolation prize for those that were nominated. In the world of Hollywood, just being nominated is probably a pretty significant prize. I, however, come from a world of receiving a trophy for just showing up. And to that notion, I say enoughs enough. From t-ball […]

Bye Bye Bottles

February 11, 2014

It’s certainly not an umbilical cord providing nutrients, nor is it a boob supplying mother’s milk and it’s not a bottle giving scientifically produced formula. This contraption is a toddler cup, also known as a sippy cup. My baby is graduating. The other day I put my gummy smiling baby down for a nap. After a solid couple hours of […]

Gripes Galore!

February 5, 2014

I have many gripes. There are many things in our day to day life that cause me to bitch and moan. I think the one to take the cake, win the prize and be the worst thing about living with these scoundrels would be trying to get out of the door. No Gabby, it is not appropriate to go out […]
