Seeing as I have never had a sibling, the relationship is beyond me. I have certainly been exposed to plenty of friends and family who have had siblings. What I have learned is that sibling rivalry is alive and well at all ages. I have spent times trying really hard to not play my children against each other, but sometimes […]

Trip Down Memory Lane

May 2, 2013

More and more I’m finding Noah to look (and frighteningly act) like Drew. Maybe it’s all of the hand me downs he’s been sporting. Maybe it’s because he’s my second boy so it’s only natural I compare them. Whatever it is, it’s taking me on a major trip down memory lane. I’ve been dusting off some oldies but goodies of […]

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 […]

Girls Night Out

April 18, 2013

Gabby has always been my “right hand man,” or “left hand lady” as the case may be. She and I had an instant bond. Maybe it was because I was able to stay home with her at a young age. Maybe it’s because she’s a girl like me. Or maybe it’s because she has a more mild personality since she’s […]

Job Responsiblities

December 3, 2012

Nap time has turned into a tug of war. I say nap, she’s says no. Sounds like a normal debate with a toddler. However, sleepiness has over-ruled two out of three nap offerings. Fortunately every night she has slept, as she should. So all in all I would rate our conversion to Gabby’s big girl bed a success. As much […]

She’s getting a promotion!

November 30, 2012

I’m changing my perspective. It’s not that Gabby is being booted out of babyhood. It’s that Gabby is getting a promotion. She is getting the opportunity to be promoted to big girl status. And although her eagerness out of the world of baby seems a little less enthusiastic than I had hoped, I think she will rise to the occasion. […]

My Big Girl Baby

November 9, 2012

The big girl bed is ordered. Underpants have been purchased. Camp and preschool are on the horizon. So when does my baby girl become my big girl? I don’t want to rush it because I have loved (almost) every minute of having her. In some ways, I appreciated her more than Drew. With Drew, I went through so many growing […]

Just the 4 of Us

October 22, 2012

The earth has shifted its axle or in a state of extreme irony, my life seems to have gotten dramatically easier. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not lounging on the couch more, there isn’t less laundry to do, and my day does not consist of popping bom boms. It’s just that we are in such a rhythm that everything seems […]

Taxi Service

September 27, 2012

Change my license plates and call me Mommy’s Taxi. I have entered a new phase in parenthood, I’m in the carpooling business!!! Other than the nerves associated with letting your kid go, and don’t get me wrong it’s not exactly easy for me, it’s great! Drew’s school friend is taking a sports class with him and the timing is hard […]

Someone’s Got a Boo-Boo

September 10, 2012

Not sure if you heard the news, but Gabby has a boo-boo. Nobody’s quite sure how it happened, or what the boo-boo really is but it for surely requires a Princess (a.k.a “Ya-ya) bandaid. It needs to be placed just under her chin, ironically in the exact same spot Drew just got stitches. Hm… Friday night started out like an […]
