Kung Foo Drew

October 23, 2011

Friday night I was totally THAT mom. I was that mom that wanted her kids to go to sleep so that I could unwind and have adult time. I realize that I’m not completely to blame for feeling this way. I spend a lot of time nowadays caring for them and being with them, that it makes sense I want […]

Perhaps we should never leave the house…

October 10, 2011

I realize that I’m a glutton for punishment, but it doesn’t make the situation any better. I wanted Gabby to walk so much. I practically willed her to walk. I hated, I repeat…I HATED, crawling. It seemed like once both my kids were crawling they were never satisfied with being held and always wanted to drag their bodies along the […]

The Demise of Spiderman

October 4, 2011

Naps are heaven here. I’m sure naps are vitally important in most households too. I take napping VERY seriously. Mostly because my kids have never been good at free play, nothing good comes out of them chilling on their own. So the only way I can ever get anything (and I mean anything, considering I can’t really talk on the […]

Kids Are Challenging

October 3, 2011

Have you ever noticed how each stage of a child’s life brings different challenges. I have gone through so many of the typical and not-so-typical 0-3yr challenges. Of course the spectrum of challenges only increases as they get older. It seems like the bigger they are, the bigger the challenges. Gabby started out as my easy child. It wasn’t too […]

She’s got a way about her…

September 30, 2011

Women learn at a very early age the power of a flirt. They pick up on how charming it can be to be coy. Women learn how to properly handle men by throwing a cute, tenderness their way. Gabby has mastered the art of flirting. At first I suspected that it was normal, cute baby behavior. But one by one, […]

Sooooo Uncool

September 27, 2011

There was a pivotal moment in my youth when I realized the art of being cool, or not so cool as the case may be. I was in the gymnasium at school and some “kiddy” concert was going on. I was probably in fourth or fifth grade. The performer told us to tap on our heads. As I was tapping […]

The Phenomenon of Time

September 26, 2011

It’s always weird how time has a way of making you feel. How sometimes something feels like just yesterday and it was years ago. Yet other times a short time feels like a long time. These feelings are especially strong when you are talking about your times with your young kids. I barely can remember my life without kids, yet […]

Win For Mommy!

September 23, 2011

Blogging is definitely therapy for me. Just unloading all the words alleviates some of the stress I go through. Yesterday could have been a very expensive therapy session. Rather I unloaded my frustrations on you, my readers. I sincerely appreciate all the people that reached out to me with kind words, suggestions and resources. When the first “ding” from my […]

Mommy’s having a meltdown

September 22, 2011

Maybe today was not the day to be giving up coffee. It’s also quite possible that I’m an over-dramatic, hormonal person. Either way you look at it, today was not a good day. It was a very dark day in the land of parenting. It was so dark, getting my job back may not be sufficient. It may take running […]
