Nov 30


I love my family. I do, really. I have, hands down, the best relationship with my mother – far exceeding that of anyone else I know. I love her, absolutely, respect so much about what she’s done and how she’s done it, and I know that she thinks I’m the bees’ knees. But my siblings? …

I love Tuesdays

Just my favorite day. And it’s bright and sunshiney outside (freezing cold, so I’m not actually going outside, but the sight of the sun still makes me smile) and all is right in my world. The boys are getting along wonderfully, Harrison is singing away to himself and Sam is very focused on eating. He …

I’m a healthy girl

I am. I swear it. And my kids are healthy as well. But this winter, it’s not living up to the standards that I have set. I feel like I’ve had a cold, not a bad one, but a persistent one, for several weeks, and so has Sam. Sam runs a fever when he’s sick …

When Mommy’s not happy, nobody is happy

This apparently rings true even if you are almost 35 and live two towns away. My mother is having a crappy day, no real reason, she’s just grouchy. And unfortunately… talked to me this morning, and now I’m all grumpy and out of sorts. Actually, I’m working hard on improving my mood. Although I’m freaking …

When you have kids, or rather, when I had Jessica, my identity changed. Becoming a mother just superceded everything. And because it happened so closely to the time when Marc and I became a couple, I don’t always feel like that aspect of my life, that of a wife, really gets enough attention. Then after …

Trick or Treat

Halloween was great this year – I really, really enjoyed it. Jessica was dressed up as Dorothy, with the dress and ruby slippers, and I put her hair in two little braids, she carried a basket with a stuffed dog in it. Sam was supposed to be Batman – but at the last minute, refused …
