Mommy’s Two Cents

November 22, 2012

How’s that blogging thing going? People ask me this all the time. I’m not exactly rolling in the moola from blogging…so if that’s how you’d gauge my success than it’s not going well. Blogging, however, has given me so much! First of all, I’m constantly overwhelmed and surprised that anyone reads what I have to say. I’m so grateful for […]

I’m grateful for allergies!!!

November 20, 2012

When Gabby was born she weighed 7 pounds 14 ounces. By the time we left the hospital, she was almost at her birth weight. For the next year her weight was on a roller coaster of highs and lows. Many tears were shed over the fact that she was not thriving. I took her to countless doctors without receiving any […]

The World We Live In

November 19, 2012

This being the week of Thanksgiving and all, no better time to appreciate what I got. I’m thankful for so very much but sometimes I get lost and caught up in what I want, where the deficits in my life are, and focus on all the wrong things. So today I’m going to focus on how grateful I am to […]

Oh Preschool

November 8, 2012

I have finished the last of my tours of preschools. I have now been exposed to four different preschools. Each one has their own strengths and weaknesses. So now I believe it should be decision time… Maybe it’s the fact that I’m super preggers and have not felt especially decisive during these 32 weeks of pregnancy. Maybe it’s the fact […]

My Mom

October 10, 2012

Today I celebrate my mom. I celebrate my mom because I now have a better understanding of how difficult the job really is. I celebrate my mom because she spent the majority of my life doing this incredibly difficult task by herself. I celebrate my mom for being a completely devoted, willing to do what it takes kinda mom. I […]

Call it fate?

October 5, 2012

Approximately a year and a half ago, I quit my job. It was one of the most nerve wracking decisions I have ever made but I took a leap of faith (?) and did it. In some ways it has been my most excruciatingly hard year and a half but also my most deliriously happy year and a half. Almost […]

The Grandparent Effect

October 3, 2012

As if I needed a reminder to the heavy lifting necessary in managing a child who has spent the weekend with his grandparents where “no” was infrequently part of their vocabulary, Drew had a temper tantrum for the books. Let me set the scene… Last week Drew’s grandparents took him to his taekwondo class. At the fine establishment is a […]

Sins: An immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law. Definitely a four year old definition! Tonight at sundown starts the holiest of Jewish holidays, Yom Kippur. From my understanding, Rosh Hashana is the Jewish New Year and exactly a certain amount of days later starts Yom Kippur where G-d takes out his book and decides who will […]

It’s just a game…

September 24, 2012

Friday night there was an intense game of Chutes and Ladders in our house. I know, my life is very exciting these days. With one minor overlook of a chute, Drew won the game. His celebratory dance shook the house, howls could be overheard by neighbors and days later we were reminiscing over Drew clinching the world championship of Chutes […]

Nana’s Rosh Hashana

September 18, 2012

Yesterday marked the Jewish New Year. For the past thirty years of my life, I have spent the first day of Rosh Hashana at my grandma’s (a.k.a. Nana). We have a very specific ritual. We start in the morning at our respective temples, meet around noon at Nana and Poppy’s temple (to be properly paraded past their various friends), back […]
