Sunny Days Ahead

March 17, 2014

There is something that has been happening during a dual parenting situation, it’s almost too unheard of to even discuss. Shocking in fact. I’m finding myself actually enjoying my kids – gasp!!!!! I have blogged in many different ways describing the joys, the frustrations and everything in between but I’m not sure I’ve ever come right out and said it. […]

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 […]

Best Behavior

February 10, 2014

I’m led to believe that my kids actually behave when I’m not around. Although, I always have the worry that perhaps the caregiver doesn’t completely want to divulge. It’s just hard to believe that my children could have so many behavioral issues when they are around me and essentially turn into different people once I’m gone. And if that is […]

Three Year Old Devil

February 4, 2014

The first time around I thought it was all me. If I weren’t a working mom, if I were less intense, if I didn’t yell so much…yadda yadda. Well this is no longer my first time at the rodeo and now I know who is completely responsible… I have learned one thing from my experience of parenthood (hopefully I’ve learned […]

The Evolution of Noah

February 3, 2014

At this point I plan that Drew needs to have a friend or child to engage with. I expect that Gabby wants someone to play with too. What I do not plan is Noah needing that same level of interaction. I had Drew after a close friend had her baby. We would get our babies together for an intense play […]

Bring on the “Yeses”

January 30, 2014

Recently I have found myself caught in a world of “don’t,” “stop,” “no!” Mostly with my three year old terror, but it’s a natural part of my vocabulary. Now “Johnny Social Worker,” no need to comment on how horrible it is to communicate with your children this way. I get it, that’s why I’m blogging. You, my wonderful readers, are […]

Birthday Bash

December 23, 2013

I’ve spent my whole life in the background over shined by two incredibly outspoken beings and NOW on a day where teeth are sprouting out left and right, boogers are pouring out of my nose and you are introducing me to new foods with different consistencies every meal…you expect me to perform as the star of the show?!?! These people […]

It’s here!!!

December 19, 2013

It’s actually happening. As much as I tried to put my foot down and push it away, the inevitable is happening. At first I actually wanted the weeks to go by. Getting to eight weeks meant being able to take him everywhere. Perhaps twelve weeks would make me closer to a full nights sleep. Six months could mean less crabbiness […]

Break Redefined

November 26, 2013

What do you mean there’s no school all week? What am I supposed to do with my kids without any programming??? Ah!!!!!! Some day, hopefully in the not too distant future, it will be a benefit that my kids are close in age. Their abilities and interests matching each other’s. Today, however, that is not the case. Activities that once […]
