The Stay At Home Saga

June 17, 2014

I recently saw that someone quit their job to be a stay at home mom. It caused me to rehash all my feelings, three years after I quit my own job to take on this cumbersome one. Do I like being a stay at home mom? Why do I do it? Is it gratifying in a way that a career […]

Today’s Ideals

May 20, 2014

Recently someone asked me what my thoughts were on organic foods and television exposure with kids. My answer was short – where I started and where I am now are two separate places. What a perfect blog topic! You spend nine months (or forty weeks as the case may be) with this alien growing inside you. It’s an alien because […]

As parents we frequently obsess over milestones. I celebrated when Drew rolled over at a mere ten weeks. Little did I know that that would be indicative of an extremely over active toddler. Gabby started “gabbing” far younger than most so I celebrated her brilliance. Little did I know that that would be indicative of a child that doesn’t stop […]

3 Truths

April 7, 2014

Five and three quarters years of parenting, three children, and I’m FINALLY starting to understand some hard truths to this whole parenting gig. What can I say…I’ve been a little late to the game with everything having to do with this parenthood thing. Better late than never, right? For one, I’m kinda a big deal to these people. Mom. Mama. […]

Living with Three (the saga continues)

March 21, 2014

I by no means have my act together. I’d venture to say that I have my act together more than I previously have. An old sage (actually my friend who has three kids older than mine) told me that I was in the trenches and in two years I would get my life (sorta) back. I think I’m halfway there. […]

I have had a love/hate relationship with technology when it has come to my kids. I love it when it “babysits ” my kids at 6am allowing for some extra snooze. I hate it when my son has his nose buried so deep in the iPad that it takes me several days to dig him out. Upon my first tour […]

Winning and Losing

March 3, 2014

Last night on the Oscars, Ellen talked about celebrating the people that didn’t win. A consolation prize for those that were nominated. In the world of Hollywood, just being nominated is probably a pretty significant prize. I, however, come from a world of receiving a trophy for just showing up. And to that notion, I say enoughs enough. From t-ball […]

Such A Girl

February 27, 2014

I’m such a girl. I need constant appreciation and validation. I’m needy. These are all things I have fought. I wanted to believe that I was “better” than this but I was wrong. Maybe it’s the estrogen, my upbringing, etc. Whatever it is, it makes it hard for men (mainly my husband) who aren’t built that way. I guess it’s […]

I failed the test!

February 19, 2014

There was a quiz on Facebook asking “How many kids SHOULD you have?” Too bad I didn’t take the test before procreating… I guess I should be happy it didn’t tell me to go sterilize myself and that it would be to the detriment of a child to be born into my life. The results weren’t three kids in five […]

Finish line

February 13, 2014

I did it!!! I woke up this morning and felt that final burst of energy, much like the extra push you get in a run when you see the finish line. I sprinted to the end and crossed the finish line! The truth is that I now know unequivocally that I am physically capable of taking care of my kids […]
