Mikvah

Yesterday afternoon, I formally converted to Judaism. When I first met Marc, and immediately got pregnant :-), I was completely freaked out about the fact that he was Jewish. I didn’t know ANYONE who was Jewish and the thought of trying to balance out his traditions with mine was really scary. I knew that I …

250 Visitors

That’s a whole lot of people visiting my blog. Given that most of the time, I think the only one who reads it is my husband, I’m impressed. And even though it may just be Marc clicking on it 250 times in a row, I suspect that there are more of you out there. Could …

Mama, I go check da doors

Last night, Marc was out with his friends, playing D&D;, and I was home with the kids. I kept Glennys overnight and both girls were sound asleep. Sam had napped for three and a half hours, and was just wide awake and adorable about it. He spent forty five minutes playing on the living room …

Go play outside

This was the theme of my summers growing up (I hated being shoved outside, and quickly learned that offering to do the dishes or help out vacuuming would get me out of it – which is how I ended up doing the vast majority of kid chores in my household – the other three ran …

Woo Hoo – Summer Vacation

I love summer vacation. I mean, who doesn’t, right? And it’s just as much fun when it’s your kids having the break. We all slept a little later this morning, and I really do like having Jess home. I totally should have homeschooled, because I bet we both would have loved it. She’s signed up …

And while it made sense before I started it, mid-way thru, I started to wonder if perhaps I was one of those scary moms who’s obsessive about her children’s happiness. But what I can …

Happy Father’s Day

My dad was not a dad, in any sort of good sense. He just wasn’t. But today, I celebrate three different men. In order of how they came into my life… My grandfather. I’m the second grandchild of twenty one. And from the very beginning, the best and most important man in my world was …

Extended nursing

Sam will be three in a matter of weeks (amazing to me, my baby is going to be THREE) and he’s shown NO indication that he wants to stop nursing. And I’m perplexed and unsure as to how to proceed. I want very much to stop nursing. I’m really ready to move on – I’d …

Hermits – not so much

Anyone have a good hermit recipe? I found one on-line and made some odd crunchy cake type things. They aren’t good All is lovely here – kids are healthy and well, Marc is happy and content… not much going on, just a rainy, lazy Thursday

What’s up with the difference between a mom and a dad?

Help me out here, because I’m honestly a bit baffled. My husband is literally a genius, his IQ is off the chart. He also graced with a lot of common sense and has a been a parent for over ten years. So why can’t he figure out how to put the kids to bed by …
