I’d Rather Just Know What’s New With YOU

I distinctly remember smiling last night as I thought of two excellent blog post ideas.  Things I really wanted to talk about and that would be fun to write. Once I got Xavi down for his nap today, I rushed to the computer…and realized I had no recollection of either topic.  Zilch.  Why I thought [...]

Leaving Brooklyn…In Style

We are so ready for this move to the suburbs.  So, so ready.  We did our time in Manhattan and then in Brooklyn.  We tried our best and have wonderful memories of both, but it is time to follow the other ‘three child families’ to the land of grass and guest rooms.  For us, the [...]

There is something about having kids that makes life crystal clear, with all of the complexities of simultaneous joy and pain.  But it also blurs the lines.  It leaves you raw, which allows for so much more joy to press itself up against you, soothing [...]

Forward

I have been having fantasies lately. Prints.  Carpets.  Color.  Organization. Yes, décor fantasies. The thing is, I got pregnant at 25 years old.  Then we got married once Carlitos turned one.  We lived in Washington, D.C., and then moved to Maryland.  Suddenly we were in Harlem.  Next up, Brooklyn. Basically we have done everything backwards.  [...]

This is What Emotions Look Like, Mommy

This morning I felt like I got hit by a Mack truck.  I know, original metaphor, right? (Or is that an analogy? Simply a description?  Sorry – High school English failed me.) We had a fabulous St. Patrick’s Day dinner party that lingered until almost 3 am.  The candles and company made it elegant, the [...]

Pantry Pasta

Before I write anything else, let me just clarify that this blog is not actually turning into solely ‘What’s for Supper Wednesdays’…it just looks that way.  The truth is that the past week has entailed both boys being sick for 4 days with a lovely virus that included 104.4 degree fevers, a long weekend on [...]
