Inner Monsters

May 21, 2013

How is it that a cute, loving little person can turn into a wicked beast within two seconds flat? Something…let’s say like receiving the opportunity of flushing the toilet, can be so upsetting to them that they can turn into something so fierce and ferocious that they almost become unrecognizable? Do you become the parent who tries pleading. Please “so […]

A Picture Says a Million Words…part II

May 13, 2013

I had high hopes for Mother’s Day. High hopes for a Mother’s Day that doesn’t exist for me…yet at least. I had hopes for a day without temper tantrums. I had visions of a day where only kind words were sent my way. I dreamt up a day where crabbiness was only a mythological thing that was in story books. […]

It was a RED kinda day!

May 8, 2013

Yesterday Drew’s behavior was on “red” (a scale where behavior is rated from green, yellow to red). Although it’s not the first time and probably won’t be the last, you can imagine my delight. After my line of interrogation fell on deaf ears, I decided to march into school and demand an explanation (or walk in with my tail between […]

Bedtime Agony

April 30, 2013

Bedtime used to be a science. Twenty minutes – pjs, teeth brushing, face washing, stories and sleep. Easy as that. Until now… Everyone who knows anything about rearing children knows that kids thrive on routine. If you have a series of activities that prepare them for the winding down that comes with bedtime, it will be a smooth transition to […]

Our Norman Rockwell Painting

April 26, 2013

In the Norman Rockwell painting I envisioned my family to be, I had my beautiful children aged approximately two years a part. They would grow up with their best friends, i.e. their siblings, in tow. Family events (somehow I imagined them around an X-mas tree although we are Jewish and do not have one) were spent making lasting memories that […]

I was with a friend over the weekend who looked at Noah and sighed that she wanted one (a baby). I told her to enjoy what she has now – freedom. Easy for me to say… This weekend marks the first of three consecutive weekends of babysitters. One would think that I would be ecstatic at the opportunity to get […]

Take me out to the ballgame…

April 10, 2013

And so it starts. With both the Chicago teams having had their opening days, we are officially in baseball season. I have never been shy about my detest for this six month long season of baseball but it continually reaches larger and higher levels of pain. My son loves baseball. He doesn’t love baseball like he once LOVED and had […]

The Domino Effect

March 29, 2013

Reason 357,926 why it’s hard having three children: The Domino Effect. When the Domino Effect happens at 7am resulting in three wide awake children while I am trying to get ready, it’s annoying. When the Domino Effect occurs at 2:30am, it’s downright impossible. Thanks Drew for starting that one out last night. People keep asking me if it’s harder going […]

Dress the Part

March 6, 2013

I have always taken pride in what I look like. Call me materialistic, perhaps my values are askew. Whatever it is, I think it’s important to dress the part. So when Adam was in a nasty long sleeve t-shirt before we left for an adult Saturday night birthday party, I demanded he change and sighed a big sigh (not him […]
