Stay at Home Mom

Trio Outing

March 30, 2012

When today’s play date got cancelled my first inclination was to hit up Lifetime, per usual, and get a good workout in. As Drew’s tears increased with the cancellation of the play date, I realized Lifetime’s Kids Club just wasn’t going to cut it. So next I considered harassing a variety of different people for alternate play dates. Instead I […]

Dead Woman Walking

March 23, 2012

I always try to be a person of character. That was a strong message my mom always taught me. I may not say or do all the right things but if I try to be honest with myself and do what is right, I can never go wrong. That sometimes means stretching yourself and doing whats uncomfortable just because its […]

I heart NOW!

March 20, 2012

Last summer, our first summer as “The Trio,” we spent lots of time going to parks and playing outside. By the end of the summer I was really sick of going to parks and playing outside. That may sound absolutely ridiculous because what new stay at home mom wouldn’t bask in beautiful summer days doing those activities?!?! Last summer Gabby […]

Who’s doing the heavy lifting?

March 8, 2012

At Drew’s sports class, 3 out of the 6 kids have nannies with them. Having a nanny was something we had considered when I was working. The thought of having someone care for the kids and also help me with some of the house work seemed like it might make the challenges of being a working mom a little easier. […]

Rules of Engagement

February 27, 2012

I’m a social person. I like to chit chat. So one of the scariest things in quitting my job was being able to remain social. Yes, there are times that I can get away and hang out with my friends. But how does a STAY-AT-HOME mom socialize with others???? During my first few months of retirement, it was summertime. And […]

My Inner Yogi

February 24, 2012

Relaxation? Impossible! Inner peace? As likely as peace in the Middle East. Yoga? A nice workout after several days of hard muscular working out. People that advocate for Yoga talk about the mental benefits as much as the physical ones. To be completely honest, I thought it was all a crock. I find it hard being alone with myself in […]

Worldly Mama

February 20, 2012

I have some friends that are getting married out of state in a few months. When I heard about the location, I was thrilled at the opportunity to see that part of the country. I didn’t think for a second that anything would get in the way of me being a part of this big event for my special friends. […]

I was recently sucked into an article about 7 Secrets of Successful Parenting. As if it were as easy as seven tips. I felt that my non-stop frustration with never understanding the right way to handle my children meant that I must read this article top to bottom. And before I knew it, I was completely sucked into the article […]

My Job

January 30, 2012

We had a team meeting today, a Drew team meeting. His teachers, the social worker, Adam and I all met to discuss his progress. I’m happy to say there has been progress. I’ve definitely noticed an improvement with things at home. And at school, he has had an incentive chart which he is coming home with stickers of success and […]

It’s that lovely time of year where people are starting to get out of dodge. It is frigid one moment or snowy and slushy the next. Either way, it’s miserable. And frankly the weather is just the least of it. I think I may need a vacation from my children. Surprisingly Drew has been doing a little better. All it […]
