I swear it wasn't that long ago that my kids wanted to do EVERYTHING with me. But lately, I'm starting to realize that maybe I'm not quite as cool as I once thought I was. (*What the hell?!!*) Fifth grade is bringing on a whole new desire for independence, and friends are…Continue

We feel that is it very important to invest time into our marriage and take the time to remember why we fell in…Continue

Our schedule has been insane this week and the only down-time we’ve had is nap-time. The rest of the day; morning, afternoon and evening has been filled with pre-school, kids play-dates/Christmas parties, a company Christmas party and a few other night time events too! Brian said to me last night,
“How about a movie night and early bed-time on Friday?“
I will never turn that down; sounds perfect! I declined an invite to a Cookie Exchange…Continue

My husband made the greatest purchase of our lives last weekend when he found this Pokemon Monopoly game at a garage sale for a dollar.

My child knows that every night she has to go to sleep in her bed. If she wakes up in the middle of the night from a nightmare she can climb into mommy's bed for some cuddling and to chase away the monsters. Most nights when the bed routine starts she asks nonstop to sleep in mommy's bed. Well, she doesn't say it in a full sentence she just repeats "mommy's bed?" over and over and over again. On rare occasions when I just want her to fall asleep right away or I want some extra cuddling…Continue

This past weekend, some girlfriends and I had organized a fun night out in downtown Chicago. No husbands, no kids, just us girls kickin' it in the city. Unfortunately, though, our whole night was planned around a godforsaken musical that we'd bought tickets to see on LivingSocial. It was called, "Girls Night: The Musical" and promised to be a super fun mix of…Continue

I was looking through my blog a few weeks ago and I realized that I was a way better mom before I had three kids.
I've heard it from a lot of mommies. Two is doable, manageable, one-on-one team formations. Three? Three throws you over the edge. I have heard though that if you can get to three and survive, then four, five, six, and so on, are no big deal. Just throw 'em on the pile! (Not that I will be testing out that theory. Rest assured, I will…Continue

During my pregnancy Hubby would always remind me to have some sweet music on.
He believed to those who say that babies, after their birth, can recognize the music that they have been listening to, when they were living into the belly.
I was skeptical about it.

. . . I get to forget there are kids and diapers and housework and work-work and all that other crap. I get to lose myself in the music with the man I fell in love with.

Imagine a scene from Footloose and you have a basic idea of what my high school prom looked like…without the grain elevator, without the cakes and pies, and without the fighting. But, there were plenty of pastel colored long dresses, and ridiculously pastel ruffled tuxedos. Roses and baby’s breath abounded and everyone was on their best behavior.

Since the New Year, hubby and I have had two date nights. Last weekend was the first attempt. We were supposed to have a romantic dinner at an upscale Italian restaurant and then we would be off to see a movie. We were supposed to leave work early, meet at home, change and then head on out again. Babysitting was covered and the kids were looking forward to a date night of their own. They had control over the babysitters, Oreo cookies, freshly baked brownies, the Wii remote controls! …Continue
