Lessen the Christmas Day Chaos

You know what’s coming next week?  Gifts.  And if you have kids, the number may be excessive.  Regardless of whether you have the room for all the new stuff, that doesn’t mean that year after year you must continue to accumulate and your whole house must be a disaster Christmas morning and the week…

Your baby is nothing like my baby

I have three friends from college who live nearby and had babies around the same time as me. Three of us delivered the same week (one was checking out of the same hospital and was two rooms away the day I checked in) and the fourth delivered a few weeks later.

We had two girls and two…

Losing or Gaining Your Identity?

When we are little girls, some of us dream of becoming moms, holding and loving our baby dolls while practicing to care for the real thing one day.  Others sit in front of the mirror holding the hairbrush microphone, imagining themselves as pop stars, while there are those that sit for hours and draw up beautiful sketches of clothing hoping to one day become a designer.

Whatever the dream, from the time we have pigtails and bows in our hair, we are attracted to certain careers.  I…

Men Are Like Steel. When They Lose Their Temper, They Lose Their Worth.

There certainly is no shortage of parenting books out there.  These books show you the latest and greatest tips for everything from getting your baby to sleep through the night to good behavior in general.  And, so often I am asked by my friends if I have read a particular book, and so often, the answer is that I have not.

13 Things I Want For You, My Son

Below is something I posted in April 2010, when my son was home from Korea just a year.  I recently came across this again and wanted to share it again today, since it's such a special day for my family.  This was written before my son was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder and ADHD….which makes it a bit more special to me,  knowing what I know now about the challenges he faces. …

Out and About: What Mommy and Daddy Do While the Kids Are Away

The boys are hanging out with Nana and G-Dad {my parents} for the week. 
My Mom will offer to babysit the boys throughout the year, allowing Greg and I the opportunity to spend some quality time together. We love it! It's like a mini vacation! And judging by the pictures she sent me this afternoon, I would assume that the boys aren't missing us terribly, either. …

The Book

http://andbabymakes2.co.il

My girlfriend Eti has been telling me for years that I need to write a book. In my mind it would read like "Sex and the City". I have never asked her to compare it to a TV show, but I'm pretty sure it's along the same lines…with a little "Friends" thrown in.

My life today is more like "The Flying Nun". I fly about all day every day working, caring for my kids, caring for my house… The nun part I'm…

Enriching The Mind Of A Curious Child

What good questions did you ask today?” was Albert Einstein’s mother Pauline’s greeting to his genius son as soon as he gets home. This one question may not have been the lone reason that shaped the genius that he was but there is a great possibility that it contributed a lot.…

Video Games from a Gamer Parents perspective

 So, my almost two-year-old has shown a lot of interest in video games recently. Probably because they are on more than TV shows in our house. Yes, we are the dreaded gamer parents. I mean, it kind of had to happen, and there are more and more all the time as all of us 90's kids start having kids.


And I have to admit, I haven't really got to any of the hard stuff yet, like really explicit or violent games that she plays or wants to play but she's… Continue

3 Girls, a Texter & The Park

I think we all know how easy it is to get pulled into technology. A phone call, a text, twitter, blogs, Facebook- They all beckon to us with their allure and charm. I think that the stay at home parent may be especially susceptible to this due to the lack of social interaction in our daily lives. So, noticing my draw to text, talk or type I set up guidelines for myself. I try to do time consuming tasks during nap time or night time when Dad's home. Although texting in front of my girls isn't my… Continue

I'll take the extra pounds.

I’m pulling my hair out.  Literally.

 

I’ve reached the postpartum stage where a woman’s hair begins to fall out.  Yay.  If you know me, you’d know that I cannot stand loose hair.  It disgusts me.  I’m not quite sure why, but I just know it’s not for me.  I’m the friend who will pick loose hairs off of the back of your shirt.

 

During this part of my postpartum period with my firstborn, I was pulling out handfuls of hair in the shower every day for a month.  I’m…

Funny Places I’ve Nursed

Today I realized I’ve been either nursing or pregnant for the last 38 months. Yes, 38 months of either my daughters growing inside me or happily sucking on my breasts while they nurse. That’s pretty much summed up my life. The umbilical cord may have been cut (after it stopped pulsing of course), but my babies are still in need of what I can give them nutritionally through nursing. This made me think about all the places I nursed over the years.

Juggling Life



Juggling my roles as a Mother, wife, woman, housecleaner and cook is sometimes overwhelming. On some days it’s an accomplishment if I’m dressed before noon and the kids have been fed. Those days are the days where I can’t seem to get the baby to sleep long enough to manage getting clothes on, breakfast made,…
