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 […]

Minus Four

March 11, 2014

This week Drew received a worksheet that showed he scored minus four on his ability to assess sight words. Some parents may have shredded the sheet and not looked back.

Play Dates Revised

October 18, 2013

We’ve recently entered a new world of socialization. The world of play dates. I’m not talking about an arranged gathering of two moms who like each other and force their children to play. I’m not talking about a forced get together with a mom you don’t know that well but your kids like each other. I’m talking about an email […]

I’m Failing…literally

September 17, 2013

Nobody is going to be shocked when I say that I’m overwhelmed. I’m overwhelmed by having three kids. I’m overwhelmed by having an absentee husband. I’m overwhelmed by the amount of laundry I must do in a given week. I’m overwhelmed by the amount of groceries I must buy weekly. The list goes on and on and on. What is […]
