March 8, 2013

Growing up, my house was quiet. I used to put on music, the tv and talk on the phone just to feel like there was action going on. It’s not that I couldn’t stand the quiet, I just craved noise. I would go over to friends’ houses that had siblings, people coming and going and be jealous. Be careful of […]

Dress the Part

March 6, 2013

I have always taken pride in what I look like. Call me materialistic, perhaps my values are askew. Whatever it is, I think it’s important to dress the part. So when Adam was in a nasty long sleeve t-shirt before we left for an adult Saturday night birthday party, I demanded he change and sighed a big sigh (not him […]

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 […]

Glutton for Punishment?

February 28, 2013

At an overdue 2 month checkup yesterday, the doc told me that Noah isn’t gaining as he should. WHAT?!?! I almost lost it. Feel free to remind me that at this point “IT” has been long gone. And as much as I claim to have lost it on several occasions, I’m still getting up in the morning and charging through […]

Doctor’s Report

February 7, 2013

Time is such a funny thing. How in some ways something could seem like it went so fast, yet you can’t remember life before. That pretty much sums up the last seven weeks, which I’m afraid will become the last seven years…seventeen years, etc. before I know it. As much as people tell me to enjoy the moment, it’s hard […]

Media Crazed!!!

December 20, 2012

I’m not exactly proud of it but sometime ago my son became obsessed with the iPad. I’m sure I’m not the first person who started exposing their child to their iPad with hopes of fifteen minutes of solitude. Well suddenly those fifteen minutes turned into forty-five minutes which led to an hour and a half…well the torture of prying it […]

A quarter the way through…

December 10, 2012

We are deep in the trenches of Chanukah, a couple of big bashes under our belt. With weeks of prepping on appropriate gift receiving behavior, I’d venture to say my kids have been sufficiently gracious through our first two tests. (Read about my feelings of dread here) It didn’t hurt that I used bribery, or a reward system as I’d […]

4 Year Old Gratitude

November 29, 2012

I am not a fan of the holiday season. I’m not the Grinch or anything. It’s not that I don’t like getting or receiving presents. It’s that my kids, mainly Drew, do not need much encouragement to act like a complete spoiled brats and this season perpetuates it to the umpteenth! I’m no saint in this story. I want him […]

A Picture Says a Million Words

November 28, 2012

The truth is that I really like my husband. I definitely love him like I’m supposed to but I also really like him. And sometimes it takes a picture like this to make you see it captured so beautifully in front of you. This was taken courtesy of Ben and Sarit’s wedding (thanks guys) where we had the rare opportunity […]

It’s not glamorous, but it’s all mine!

November 23, 2012

Days like this where a lot of the world has a vacation day and my husband is at work so I am left to have anything but a vacation day (kids without school or activities), I am reminded how thankful I am for being a stay at home mom. Better yet, I am thankful that I belong to Lifetime Fitness […]
