Hmm, time for Not Me! Monday. You want honesty? You got it! My next New York City Moms blog article was not overdue. I finally finished it this morning and it’s in the cue. I’ll let you know when it gets published. It’s called “Natural Birth, Duggar Style.” I do not still owe someone a book review, have to watch a video about breastfeeding and write the review, and manage 1781… Continue

I know that it is crazy to expect to have a moment of peace and quiet
to myself. I know that there are sacrifices to be made when you have
children. I am on board with that. I was not so oblivious to think that
my life would remain unchanged. I thought there would be changes. I
knew things would never be the same, but I was not prepared for the
magnitude; the depth and breadth of it all. When they were newborn, all
my time was spend occupying their time. My life… Continue

Like many parents, I try and limit tv exposure for my kids,
attempting instead to fill their days with hands-on creative play,
together and independently while I go about my business.
Lately, though, my toddler’s morning routine has become character-driven, with an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba while I prepare breakfast, and an hour of Sesame Street afterward while I play with our
infant and get him squared away for his first nap.…

I will admit it – before making this recipe I had never eaten a pomegranate.
I have had pomegranate juice, but this was the first time I’ve purchased the whole fruit. I had Mike open it up and get the seeds out for me [it kind of looked like a pain to me - thank you, honey!]. I popped one in my mouth – a little crunch, a little explosion of deliciousness!… Continue

I'm so geeked!
I wrote a very humble blog entry about John Bevere's book "Drawing Near". It's been a blessing that has impacted various areas of my life
. Funny, as you 'draw near' to God, other areas are affected positively - marriage, parenting, work, etc.
Anyhoo, I digress.
I just noticed a comment from the Beveres on my site
. Whether it was one of them or their staff, it speaks… Continue

When Jordan was first injured, I searched for reason in every corner of my life, of God’s promises, in every insignificance I could find. I said very often to my sister that if it were Jordan’s destiny to be nearly fatally injured by her babysitter and to live with permanent brain injury, then I was glad God chose me to take care of her because some mothers would abandon their newly imperfect babies to the oh well Dumpster.… Continue

I consider myself an expert in the field of Non-Verbal Communication. My husband is an engineer, which is to say he has a PhD in Non-Verbal Communication. He was on the Dean’s list when I met him. He flourished under the tutelage of a blue collar step-father, a man of few words: “Who left the milk out?” and “I’m going out.”
I am psychic. I can read my mind. I think everyone else should be able to, too. Especially if we’ve spent more than an hour trauma bonding. Or if we’ve been… Continue

I read this post today from Bored Mommy who is anything but boring. Someone left a bizarre comment about how being a Mommy (or Mummy) rather than a Parent, is somehow undignified and infantile. It's incredible, really. Continue

It is now 10pm. We have internet, although this morning if you had seen or heard Principe stomping around the living room alternatively throwing and picking through the internet
cables you would have thought we would never have it. In fact, he
claimed that we were not sent the right stuff in order to set it up.
But suddenly, as I came out of our room, I found him sliding on his
knees in a victory dance looking for a high five. His dark mood…

Munch has discovered Barbie. I was unaware that she had them at her new daycare (which she started this past fall). So I was surprised when, at Christmas, she told Santa that a Barbie doll was at the top of her wish list. (And, from all accounts-because I wasn't with her- Santa assured her there would be one under the tree on Christmas morning- we won't be visiting THAT mall Santa again!) I loved Barbies when I was a kid- I had a bunch AND a dreamhouse- no Corvette though! But I just felt that… Continue

Munch got a birthday check from her very generous grandparents recently. Rather than just depositing it for her, I wanted her to understand and experience the process of saving it. So off we went to our bank where Munch told the teller that she had a "posit". The teller asked if she'd like to endorse the check, so Munch carefully wrote her name on the back. I decided that she could have $15 dollars of it to go shopping with, so the teller gathered up fifteen dollar bills and counted them out… Continue
