End of a Chapter

May 27, 2015

How did it happen?  Literally where did the time go?  Days, weeks, months, YEARS have passed by me and I have been in a fog of madness missing it all. How is it avoidable?  I mean REALLY how is it avoidable?  When you have 3 kids in 4-1/2 years how is it avoidable? Today Gabby is graduating from preschool. My […]

Whats your vote???

February 10, 2015

I live in a world of over-scheduled, over-structured and over-schooled kids. I’m certainly not innocent here. My pre-k daughter is in ballet/jazz, hip hop/poms, broadway bound, gymnastics and swim class. I’d like to say it’s because kids can no longer run the streets until dinner time like they did back in my day. But first of all, I’m not 75 […]

The art of being left out

October 30, 2014

Being included, or not as the case may be, is a timeless issue. My grandma has vocalized her frustration from not being a part of certain social gatherings. Certainly I deal with it in regards to my children as well. What is the appropriate way of handling feelings of being left out? Everyone should always be included. Although that ideally […]

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 […]

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 […]

THE Year

August 15, 2014

This is THE year. This is the really defining point where Drew shows if he is just an immature, young boy who’s gonna follow mainstream schooling or not. I have always said that first grade is going to be the tell all. This is the first year of full day school. Sure, he did enrichment in the past to extend […]

Over Scheduled?!?!

July 30, 2014

As we are on the brink of August, thoughts and energy are being focused on plans for the fall. Emails are filling my inbox with reminders to register for a variety of activities. Basketball, ballet, soccer, gymnastics…oh my! I believe in a world where children’s schedules should be left open for creative play, for riding bikes until dusk, for play […]

Reading Fun…or something like that

June 19, 2014

Drew just finished kindergarten and he is completely, without a doubt not even close to reading or writing. Some of his friends have absolutely been bit by the reading bug, but Drew seems to be wearing repellent. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not concerned. I think he is a bright, young, immature kid. As advanced as he’s been at his […]

The Stay At Home Saga

June 17, 2014

I recently saw that someone quit their job to be a stay at home mom. It caused me to rehash all my feelings, three years after I quit my own job to take on this cumbersome one. Do I like being a stay at home mom? Why do I do it? Is it gratifying in a way that a career […]

Milestones

April 29, 2014

As parents we frequently obsess over milestones. I celebrated when Drew rolled over at a mere ten weeks. Little did I know that that would be indicative of an extremely over active toddler. Gabby started “gabbing” far younger than most so I celebrated her brilliance. Little did I know that that would be indicative of a child that doesn’t stop […]
