Stay at Home Mom


August 26, 2014

There are some days where I look at the tasks ahead of me and think, “I can do this!” Today is not one of those days. We are at the place in between here and there. Something’s are starting up – yay school! But something’s aren’t. Trying to get all my ducks in a row is causing my head to […]

You know those people who march outside of hotels, construction sites, restaurants, etc. with their large signs and the huge blow up rats? I want my sign, I want my blow up rat, I want to go on strike. I need the Union of Mommies to negotiate a better contract. I’m getting the short end of the stick. I get […]

The Stay At Home Saga

June 17, 2014

I recently saw that someone quit their job to be a stay at home mom. It caused me to rehash all my feelings, three years after I quit my own job to take on this cumbersome one. Do I like being a stay at home mom? Why do I do it? Is it gratifying in a way that a career […]

Superhero Problems

June 4, 2014

Last night we were reading a book about Spider-Man. Spidey was overwhelmed (yes, even super heroes sometimes get overwhelmed) by all he had on his plate – homework assignments, family obligations, his job at The Bugle and of course the demands of keeping the world safe. I’m no Spider-Man but I could totally relate to his plight! I don’t know […]

Blame it on the brain…

April 9, 2014

Your brain is a discounting mechanism. It all makes sense now! I’ve been reading “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” by Maria Semple. They talk about how your brain grows accustomed to certain things; therefore dulling your original feelings for them. For instance, you get something new that you absolutely love but over time your love for that item fades because you […]

Chop Liver

March 24, 2014

It’s an age old story – Dad commutes to California during the week, Dad is the children’s hero upon return. And you know what?! I’m getting pretty sick of it! I am their slave during the week. Literally slave. Definition of slave is a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them or to […]

Flying Solo

February 12, 2014

I miss my husband. Period. I want him to come home. End of story. But… Things are going pretty darn well. Of course I just jinxed myself and I’m sure the shit will hit the fan now. As I am about to eat my words, things have been going rather smoothly in his absence. We eat dinner when it naturally […]

When the time comes that all three kiddos are tucked into their beds, I can’t help but feel a giant sigh of relief. Knowing that we have survived another day, everyone relatively unscathed (that is if you don’t count Noah’s tumble down a flight of stairs and the demise of a very admired Bulls sweatshirt – perspective!!!), it is a […]

Ode to the baby who never gets his naps

January 15, 2014

Why oh why is my baby always crabby??? It couldn’t be because his morning nap was stifled from preschool pickup?!?! It couldn’t be because his afternoon nap lasted a total of five minutes in the car ride over to kindergarten!!?? Why, please tell me, could such a beautiful, happy baby boy become a tyrant around 6pm?!?! The saga of the […]

Music Man

January 14, 2014

As much as I detest crawling and the stage where the outlet becomes so exciting that no matter how many times an authority figure pulls the child away from it, they find their way back. There are many things about this same stage that I absolutely love. One of the major milestones my children have each progressed through, was music […]
