Stay at Home Mom

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 […]

Sick Day

October 21, 2013

Back in the day when I was gainfully employed, I used to feel a little excitement when my kids would get sick. It’s not that I wanted them to not feel well. It’s that I loved staying home and taking care of them. As a stay at home mom, having a sick kid becomes an extra juggling act. How do […]

“To Do” List

October 7, 2013

I was totally going to be the PTO lady. I dreamed of being the class mom. Ok maybe I didn’t exactly dream about it but it was definitely one of those things that was on my “to do” list. I’d even go so far as to say that it bothered me, as a working mom, that I couldn’t do that […]

I’m Failing…literally

September 17, 2013

Nobody is going to be shocked when I say that I’m overwhelmed. I’m overwhelmed by having three kids. I’m overwhelmed by having an absentee husband. I’m overwhelmed by the amount of laundry I must do in a given week. I’m overwhelmed by the amount of groceries I must buy weekly. The list goes on and on and on. What is […]

My Kiddos

July 26, 2013

Sometimes, usually when my kids are fast asleep, I think about how great they are. No I haven’t ingested an illegal substance or fallen off my rocker. I really think they are great. It’s no secret, raising kids is HARD. I’m exhausted all the time. Keeping everything in order is taxing in a way I can’t even articulate. Disciplining is […]

As if it weren’t bad enough that Adam recently took a job an hour and twenty minutes away (his previous commute was 2 minutes!!), now he has the NERVE to go on a 3 day business trip!!!! Did he forget that the TWO of us are already over powered by THREE mini-monsters?!?! So now he wanted to make the ratio […]

Crazy Lady on the Loose

June 10, 2013

My first solo mission with three torpedoes (yes, I am describing my children as missiles of mass destruction) flying directly towards me has been going pretty well. My day has been strategic to include a long morning separation where they spent hours at the gym daycare. Usually this provides solace in an otherwise anxiety filled world. Today, on the other […]

The Third

May 29, 2013

It was bound to happen. I guess it could’ve been worse? It wasn’t like I forgot him in a hot car or something really dangerous. He was left in good hands, but it’s the fact that I totally 100% forgot! At Drew’s t-ball game, Gabby booked it to the park. Despite efforts to scream for her to stop, she continued […]

Flying Solo

May 20, 2013

As Adam’s start date is quickly approaching, I’m gathering up the arsenal to handle a change of this magnitude. Many people have reached out to me, people in similar situations or people managing children for hours on end. And to those I say, how do you do it? Over the weekend Adam participated in “Tough Mudder.” He spent money, woke […]

My Jobs

May 15, 2013

One week after my sixteenth birthday, I drove myself over to Outback Steakhouse and applied to be a hostess. It was my first job ever, minus camp counseling, and I continued there on and off for four years. It took me awhile to get the hang of things – understanding how to keep the restaurant equally weighted by customers, making […]
