I hate back to school

There.  I’ve said it.  I really hate this time of year.  I like having my kids around all the time, and while I’m fully convinced that it’s the best for them to attend school, in my heart of hearts, sending them off to be with other people all day seems as wrong now as it …

Bags, D&D, and can you have PMS when you’re eight?

Julianna loves bags.  Lunch bags, backpacks, little girl pocketbooks, you name it, she’ll crawl (yes, she’s still not walking) around the house with it.  We did the back to school shopping and she’s delighted by Jessie’s new multicolored lunchbox and thrilled to death with Sam’s Super Mario Brothers lunchbox.  She’s fascinated with Marc’s big backpack …

Do any of us REALLY know what we’re doing????

Mothering is not for the faint of heart.  I’d say parenting, but right now, I’m going to do a little gross generalization, and assume that what’s true for Marc and I is true for all parents.  Because I seem to worry about everything a LOT more than my husband does.  It’s not that I love …

Still sick, but getting better…

This isn’t a bad cold, exactly.  But it’s a long lasting one, I feel as though we’ve been collectively sick forever.  Today, I charged out into the world, taking all three kids down to the mall.  Jessie loves the mall above all else, and so for her, it was a dream come true.  We bought …

Sick, sick, sick and more sick

This is the never ending cold, and we’re still kind of sick here.  It’s been over a week and at least one of us (Marc and I) have been monstrously sick every day.  Coughing, hacking, eyes swelling up, noses running, crabbiness abounds.  I apologize for the lack of blogging, I’m just sick as a dog …

We have a bit of a problem

In an effort to share parenting duties, Marc has, from the very beginning, assumed command of feeding Julianna solids.  And since he wasn’t much of one for baby food, she started on regular food pretty early on.  The only snag that is that now, she really only eats consistently when Daddy feeds it to her. …

I’m healthy -mostly

We’ve all been sick, to one degree or another, since last week.  First Marc and Sam got the cold, then I did, and Jessie still seems to have it.  I feel so much better than I did the past two days, even though I’m not all the way, I’m close enough that I’m cheerful about …

In my house, Thursday was a holiday

There are lots of things that Marc brought into my life, he’s brilliant and kind and a wonderful father.  He introduced me to Judaism, libertarian-ism, and of course, gave me three awesome kids.  One of the things I’ve found most interesting is that I’ve found myself doing things I would never have thought I’d do (like …

Different kids, different ages, different needs

I planned on having all of my kids.  Which doesn’t make me better than anyone else, merely points out that the spacing between them was deliberate and well thought out.  And overall, I like the three to four year gap.  It gives each child a chance to really be a baby, by the time the …

My anti-social koala boy is growing up…

We went to Canobie Lake yesterday – which is a big, old fashioned (I say old fashioned because I went there every year when I was a kid and I don’t think it’s changed at all) amusement park.  We’ve been several times with the kids – and quite frankly, Sam has hated it every time …
