Halloween Makes Me a SUPER Nice Mom

My child seems to confuse Easter with Halloween.  Pretty easy to do, right? What, with all of the black Easter baskets and and bloody cardboard cutouts of the Easter Bunny in the CVS Holiday aisle every Spring and all. Last year he wanted to be a bunny rabbit.  Thankfully, I didn’t end up needing to [...]

Piskey Whickle!!!!

You’re smiling, right? How can you not?!?!  Say it again:  Piskey Whickle! My high school mascot was a Sailor.  Yes, that means that as a female athletic participant all three seasons, I was a Lady Sailor. No, seriously. I guess subconsciously I took that label very seriously. I talked like a Lady Sailor: Lots of [...]

Chocolate Wasted

So, I am pretty sure that this phrase that The Kids are using nowadays actually just means to get wasted. I am not positive about that. I no longer work with teenagers, so I am kind of out of the loop.  And back when I was a teenager we didn’t believe in drinking The Devil’s [...]

Carlitos has soccer practice at 6 pm on Fridays.  Right off the bat, it seems like kind of an odd time to have soccer practice -especially for a 4-year-old – but his dad did this registration all on his own and I am going to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume it [...]

It’s Not Me, It’s You

We are also both stubborn.  Unfortunately, when that is mixed with ‘passionate,’ you can sometimes have fireworks of another sort. Our disagreements rarely remain calm and rational. Even early on in our relationship I learned [...]

Fall at the Beach

Fall is by far my favorite season. I love the smell, the crisp air, the nostalgia. And the beach is by far my favorite locale.  I love the smell, the salty air, the nostalgia. Typically, Fall at the beach means rolled up jeans, long sleeves and a vest, while you stroll with the people you [...]

We Don’t Just Make Babies, We Make FOOD!

It’s October.  So, obviously we have already started our list of possible recipes for Thanksgiving.  I have also started creating our mix CD for our New Year’s Dance Party, but that’s a different story. My husband and I love to cook.   Admittedly, I do almost all of the cooking at this point.  He leaves earlier [...]

Fighting the Frost!

Living in New York City for the past two years has had a way of making me feel pretty uncool. It could be that I have been pregnant or toting around two little ones the entire time we have lived here. It could be that I still smile at random people while everyone else glowers. [...]
