Sing Louder!!!!

November 25, 2014

Ever see the play/movie Gypsy? The jist is that the mother is so determined to make her daughter a star, live out the life she always wanted, that she turns her daughter into a stripper. It sounds more raunchy than the story is but it’s about a mother forcing the child to be something that she wasn’t. I struggle so […]

Battle of the Sexes

November 18, 2014

Yesterday we took one of Gabby’s friends out to dinner with us. The girls spent the time pretending that they were putting on makeup, jamming out to Frozen and dancing. Now THAT, I understand. The week before we took one of Drew’s friends out to dinner. The boys spent the time talking about Fantasy Football and different players. I can’t […]

Food – the enemy part 2

November 6, 2014

I have always prided myself on making ONE meal for my family. Adam and I are not picky eaters and it seems to have rubbed off on Drew. Of course I try to find low fat meals that will work with kids’ preferences but I generally make healthy meals for us all to eat. In order to “earn” dessert which […]

The art of being left out

October 30, 2014

Being included, or not as the case may be, is a timeless issue. My grandma has vocalized her frustration from not being a part of certain social gatherings. Certainly I deal with it in regards to my children as well. What is the appropriate way of handling feelings of being left out? Everyone should always be included. Although that ideally […]

My Nemesis – the iPad

October 21, 2014

Do I need to explain the excitement Drew went through when school GAVE him an iPad? It’s certainly not because he hasn’t been exposed to the iPad. He pretty much already has his own at home. And it’s also not because he has a full access pass to do whatever he wants on the iPad (the school sets its restrictions […]

I am not going to shut the eff up!!!

October 14, 2014

I’ve caught this blog circulating Facebook and it erkkkks me big time. The underlying theme is how very lucky those of us who get to stay home with our kids really are. Who can argue that? The part that really infuriates me is that anyone, let alone a fellow SAHM, would make us seem like whiney, ungrateful people! There is […]

Is there a G-d????

October 2, 2014

As we were walking into Temple for the Jewish New Year, Drew casually mentioned that he didn’t believe in G-d. Adam and I instantly looked at each other and said, “it’s time for Sunday School.” My religious beliefs have less to do with what the Bible does/does not say. Rather, I believe in perpetuating the traditions that my family has […]

Progress Report

September 2, 2014

Most jobs or schools give you an evaluation or progress report. They provide some document where your abilities are assessed. Over three years ago I quit my job to take on the full time role of mommy. Neither Adam nor the kids have reviewed my performance but I have a feeling that if they did, I’d be scored pretty badly. […]

PARTY!!!

August 4, 2014

Over the weekend I pretended that I was in my mid-twenties and spent an evening crammed in with (what felt like) thousands of people drinking watered down drinks while the music was WAY too loud. When did I become an old lady?!?! I distinctly remember thinking that I would never stop liking the bar scene. The dim lighting, the smell […]

Calm?

July 16, 2014

While Noah was getting his second haircut, he was screaming bloody murder. One of the ladies exclaimed that he must not be my first because I was so calm!!!! You talking to me??? Calm??? Hmmmm Lady, I’ve decided to tell you about somethings I’m not calm about. I am not calm when my six year old, who should have aged […]
