On the Playground

August 19, 2013

Today we had a kindergarten play date at the school park in preparation for the big day on Thursday. The single-handed worst thing that could happen in that instance happened. No, he didn’t break an arm. No, he didn’t get in trouble. Worse than all…his feelings were hurt!!!!!!!!!! GASP! We are walking into kindergarten knowing very few people and only […]

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger…

August 12, 2013

As if days spent like this, were nothing but sheer bliss… And the only exercise I was getting was when I carried my five year old up a flight of stairs for a time out (why aren’t I working out this week?? Click here). Then my husband decides to up and scoot to Cali for “work.” Was the concept of […]

My child is not going to have any friends!!!

August 5, 2013

A couple of weeks ago I got an email from another mom saying that her son talks about my son all the time and wants to have a play date. Huh???? You talking about my kid?!?! So let me understand you correctly, my kid talked about poop and farts so much that he made your kid laugh. Your kid came […]

Plus Three Equals Five

July 30, 2013

A friend of mine just had her third child and I found myself reminiscing. I’m not sure at this point that I’d like to go back to December 20 but I’m finally so very happy with where we are…as a family of five. /> These seven months have been intense. There have been many beautiful moments. But to say that […]

War Zone!!!!

July 23, 2013

Sometimes it feels like I’ve survived a war by the time I actually am done getting the kids to bed. It’s not necessarily because the day was so ridiculously hard, which it was. It is usually because that last hour before the kids finally resign to the fact that they are going to sleep is so horrendously miserable that I […]

Third Child Syndrome (Part 1)

July 12, 2013

For awhile I’ve joked that anytime Noah starts to make signs of working towards crawling, I flip him over to keep him away from becoming mobile. Unfortunately, there’s some truth to that. I’m scared. How can I possibly handle three mobile beings? But now that he’s a mere eight days away from the seven month mark, I’m starting to feel […]

Why is it that every two/three year old reaches a point where their brain says “no, I don’t need a nap today” but their body says “YES, I need sleep!!!” When Drew finally gave up his nap, he never looked back. He would destroy his room and disturb his sleeping sister, so it became clear cut that “quiet time” would […]

It’s a Birthday Nightmare!!!

June 19, 2013

Why do I do this to myself? Do I suffer from such inner conflict that I purposely try to inflict pain on myself? This upcoming weekend I am having close to 50 kids at my house for a joint (Gabby and Drew) birthday party. Why would any human being do that to themself? Am I above a facility with moonwalks […]

The Joys of Camp

June 17, 2013

There’s something about sun kissed cheeks, chlorine filled hair and the overwhelming sent of sunscreen that makes you really feel like summer is here. It’s those scents that put me back to those days filled with too much sun, bug juice and raisin-like fingers…a.k.a. camp. Today was the first day of camp for my two eldest kids. As much as […]

My New Friend

June 3, 2013

To the lady who was described as having out of control kids that she cannot handle, I salute you. There’s either two ways she lives with her current situation; she is giving her kids all she has and still can’t seem to grasp her unruly children or she is at a place where she is content with the way things […]
