March update

I feel like a March update is easier if I break this down into sections, so… Shopping/Parenting (which don’t go together at all, but roll with it, ok?) Sunday felt like spring. The air was all sunshine, soft breezes and bird songs. Also, we were home, doing nothing because Sweet Pea was sick. Puking, avoiding […]

Why We Don’t Have a Christmas Tree

I am Jewish. My husband was raised Presbyterian, considers himself atheist, and until he met me, had never known a Jewish person. So it was with some trepidation and a few drinks that I told him if he was serious about me, he would have to let me raise our possible children Jewish. Never mind […]

38 Gratitudes

Today is my 38th birthday. I have so much to be grateful for, including but not limited to: 1. Our amazingly comfortable mattress 2. Books 3. Watching Sweet Pea curl up her bed, engrossed in a book when she doesn’t know I’m watching 4. The sound of the kids laughing 5. The infinite fort configurations […]

Why I never bothered to research the preschool curriculum

Many parents spend hours researching the best preschool for their children. Not me. It’s not that I don’t care about my little angels. Like all parents, my greatest desire is for my kids to be happy (and for them to sleep through the night). But for my eldest- an outgoing kid without any developmental issues- […]

Destination Maternity Leave

It was my understanding that everyone was pretty much on the same page that maternity leave in the U.S. is hard. It’s basically Mom Boot Camp, and just when things start improving- you’ve gotten the hang of breastfeeding, your baby is smiling at you (like, really happy to see you, not passing gas), and you’re […]

That Time I Cried at the Gym

I cried at the gym on Wednesday. I know some people would cry because they had to go to a gym. Not me. I cried because I knew I would not be coming back. Over the past several months, I have become friends with people who work at the cafe at my gym. Lady Bug […]

I Don’t Feel Bad About Fighting in Front of the Kids

I’m suspicious of couples that claim they never fight. These people are either a) lying, or b) unicorns. My husband and I fight. I wish we didn’t, but both of us are way too stubborn for that. I get annoyed that he never knows where anything is. He finds it grating when I immediately ask for help […]

My Hierarchy of Needs

I don’t think dirt cheap babysitting is included anywhere on Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs, but for stay-at-home/freelance writer moms, I believe it should be. I’ve been leaving my 20 month old, (aka Lady Bug) in the care of my gym’s daycare for months and I give that situation most of the credit for my […]

The Gift of Imperfection

It is good to know you are not perfect. It makes me feel a little better about me! My friend wrote this in an email to me last week. That’s all I had to do? Let my friend know I’m not perfect to brighten his day? I’m all in. That’s easy. I am so not […]

I thought I was done with dating…

I’m up on Scary Mommy today talking about the grief (and the occasional joy) that come with finding a sitter. I hope you’ll join me over there… Is it just me or is it a jungle out there? I’d love to hear your success/horror stories in the comments! For many moms, the prospect of leaving […]
