Drew’s World

April 24, 2014

Remember those days with your first born where you spent hours at home allowing for that child to nap, preparing for their nap, transitioning them from their nap. Well those days are gone…long gone. The sad thing is that 2 out of 3 children would benefit from our crew staying home and actually observing a traditional nap time. Putting aside […]

Stuck in the Middle

April 21, 2014

What’s the deal with the whole middle child thing? Speaking as an ONLY child, I’m not sure I completely understand family placement issues. The middle child isn’t quite sure where they fit – they aren’t the first born, nor the baby. Duh, that’s because they are in the MIDDLE! That’s their place, that’s their role!! And when that middle child […]

My kid better be the next Michael Jordan, Bo Jackson or some multi-sport playing superstar. Otherwise this chaos was all for nothing. Literally nothing because it’s certainly not for the fun of the game. What a ridiculous thought that would be. Spring has brought us to a four sport juncture. We have almost accidentally, because no parent would purposefully bring […]

I failed the test!

February 19, 2014

There was a quiz on Facebook asking “How many kids SHOULD you have?” Too bad I didn’t take the test before procreating… I guess I should be happy it didn’t tell me to go sterilize myself and that it would be to the detriment of a child to be born into my life. The results weren’t three kids in five […]

Dare I say, we’re in a rhythm?!

January 8, 2014

I’ve been known to say that it took me a solid 3-6 months to get the whole baby thing the first time around. It then took me approximately a year (mind you I worked full time so I’d venture to say I was able to avoid handling the balancing act by myself) to manage two kids together. I realize that […]

Third Child Syndrome (Part 2)

September 24, 2013

Noah is behind. Not like in that engage social services way. More like the third child sort of way. And so the saga continues… He spent the first seven months of his life on my hip. He’s carted from preschool to kindergarten, from ballet to soccer. If there’s a moment when he is not in his car seat or on […]

Over the weekend, our original foursome had an outing. Besides the fact that traveling without a baby is traveling so much lighter, it was special in a way I had forgotten. There is absolutely no way I don’t want this baby in my family. He is the guy that makes my heart feel complete. He is the smile that wakes […]

The Best Part

September 10, 2013

I have frequently thought Gabby got the best part of me. For Drew, I was so wrapped up in the change of being a mom and what that life brought me that I don’t think I enjoyed every second of it the way I should have. With Gabby, I knew what it was like having a baby and I enjoyed […]

Violence at Home

July 24, 2013

To smother, or not to smother…that is the question. Did that ring, a.k.a. EXTREME choking hazard, miraculously show up next to the baby’s shoulder because “someone” out of love wanted to decorate their little brother with the finest of jewels or was there a hidden death wish. Further investigation is needed. The love Gabby displays when she is resting her […]

Forever Friends

June 5, 2013

It’s beyond me. Whenever I think I’m starting to understand the relationship, it sinks to a whole new level. Siblings. I listen to my friends who are super close with their siblings and feel such hope in the thought that someday my children will have the chance to experience that closeness. Then I talk to my friends who are constantly […]
