The Ark

November 3, 2011

This year Drew’s class is raising money for a charity. The first week they did this he wouldn’t give the money I had given him to his teacher. He insisted that he needed more toys, as if the mounds of toys we have scattered around our house are not enough. This made me realize, to reiterate yesterday’s blog, that I […]

How do I turn a blind eye?

November 2, 2011

There are so many things I am looking forward to about our upcoming move. However I am, per usual, going to take a moment to mention one of the largest things I am least looking forward to. Although we currently live in an upscale community, we do not live in an atmosphere that is quite as affluent as the one […]

Moving on up…

October 24, 2011

I have a confession, I haven’t exactly been forthcoming in the last couple of months. May sound strange since I offer up stories about my life and my feelings so freely. I’m not sure the blogger responsibility in sharing intimacies of your life. All I know is that my feelings were so tender that I didn’t feel comfortable opening up […]

The Demise of Spiderman

October 4, 2011

Naps are heaven here. I’m sure naps are vitally important in most households too. I take napping VERY seriously. Mostly because my kids have never been good at free play, nothing good comes out of them chilling on their own. So the only way I can ever get anything (and I mean anything, considering I can’t really talk on the […]

Booger Situation

September 21, 2011

My first born was the boogery one. Now I’m sure some of you are thinking, “my kid has boogers too.” Wrong. Your kid has nothing compared the mass amount of boogers that flowed out of my son’s nose. I’m not trying to be a one-upper here but never in my life have I seen an amount of boogers like this […]

A Teacher’s Two Cents

September 20, 2011

As a teacher, I am asked for a ton of childrearing/teaching advice. I give it too. Strategies to increase math calculation skills? Check. Potty training? Check. But I always admit I am not a mom. While I can dispense the “perfect” advice, I have yet to be able to implement it. But I do have one piece of advice that […]

One-way Ticket Please

September 15, 2011

Have you ever dreamt of running away from home? Have you ever fantasized about picking up and relocating to another place. Maybe it’s a different climate you are after. Perhaps you’d prefer a different atmosphere. Either way, it’s somewhere other than where you currently are. Last April we went on vacation to San Francisco and Sonoma. It made me really […]

Full Time Mom

September 12, 2011

I know the day will come in the not too distant future when I am cooped up inside the house with sick kids and haven’t seen daylight in way too long and I will yearn for the chance to be back amongst the working folk. But today I’m too wrapped up in the thrill I have for being a stay […]

Waxing My Wants Away

August 29, 2011

Money and family tend to be the biggest challenges with marriages, especially new marriages. Joining finances and learning how the other person manages their finances can be a huge hurtle in a new marriage. Different people place different priorities for their resources. And despite open communication and forecasting the future, there can still be some challenges in getting into the […]

Rule with an Iron Fist

August 18, 2011

As human beings, we judge. As parents, we must judge and hold our children to a higher standard. We need to teach them our values and by doing that we are required to resist decisions they make that falter from our values. How do we hold our children to these expectations while being open minded that their choices aren’t necessarily […]
