Kindy Roundup

May 9, 2013

Today is “Kindy Roundup.” It’s our first introduction to kindergarten. Rumor has it, kindergarten is kinda a big deal. When my thoughts of quitting my job came into play, I kept obsessing over the fact that I only have the first five years of their lives. The first five years are when they only want/need you. After that they are […]

I’m A Circus Act!!!

April 15, 2013

When I was working, I experienced major Sunday night blues. I would cry and feel completely depressed about the prospect of going the whole week without solid time with my kids until the following weekend. I always thought that not working would give me the chance to get rid of those Sunday night blues. What I have now realized is […]

Walk a mile in these shoes!

April 9, 2013

I recently ran into someone who just had her third kid, aged exactly the same as mine. When I asked her how it was going, I expected her to pipe in similarly to me. I expected, life is insane…it’s a wonder how I get out of the house in the morning…see this stream of spit up along my left side, […]

We took a nonstop flight

March 28, 2013

Some people take their kids on lavish vacations. Not I. I take my kids to Lifetime Fitness Club. Although we are certainly not soaking up any rays, I’d venture to say that they seem to be incredibly content. The thrill of pressing the elevator button seems to excite them each and every day. And if a temper tantrum/crying upon mere […]

Hard Headed?

March 21, 2013

Parenting is full of such highs and lows. Today, coming off of yesterday, I’m on a high. Not because I had a good night’s sleep – heck, that was when I worked up this attitude, in my awake nighttime hours. It’s not because I haven’t had to take away one of Drew’s most prized possessions due to bad behavior, because […]

Am I failing?

March 20, 2013

She might as well have said that I’m starving my child. Tears started streaming down my face and no amount of blinks could hold back the disaster I was about to become. She asked if I had family to lean on…um, I’m leaning on them about as much as humanly possible and I still can’t pull this off!!! Those were […]

3 Months

March 7, 2013

Thirteen days until I can take Noah to the gym with me. I have been so focused on that marker, a point which will alleviate some of the chaos of my life. Instead of dropping Drew off at school, Noah at my parents’ and Gabby at the gym kids club, we’ll be streamlined to two steps. Phew. The last week, […]

Snow Day

March 5, 2013

It wasn’t too long ago where I was like all these other people celebrating a snow day. A snow day meant either I was going to have some time to rest and catch up on my DVR. Or it meant that we had some unexpected family time. Nowadays it means neither of those things. Days over in my country are […]

We survived another week!

March 1, 2013

Two years ago when I was just learning what life was like balancing two children and getting back to working full time, I felt a huge weight lift when we made it through the week to Friday. Although I would like to think it was because it meant that I could spend two consecutive days with my kids, it really […]

Reporting from HELL!!

February 15, 2013

Are five days in a row my threshold or are my kids absolute monsters? And I’d like to give the excuse that it’s harder because I have three kids now but honestly Noah has been nothing but luggage when we shuffle around town. In the early evening (a.k.a the witching hourS) is a different story but during the day, he’s […]
