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 [...]

Sandy Isn’t Over Yet

Tragedy occurs every single day, all over the world.  Horrible atrocities.  Crimes that shock us.  Violence against innocents that makes your stomach turn.  Natural disasters that wipe towns, cities and islands off the map.  Injustices that we never even hear about because they don’t make the news. It’s all unfair.  All of it.  I think [...]

The Power of Connection

The last time I wrote – just a couple weeks ago – I was waiting for my nuclear iodine scan and uptake results.  A lot has happened since then.  I kept calling my doctor to find out the results and finally, almost a week later, they realized that they had received them the Friday prior, [...]

The Photo Edition

By request (Honest to God I Swear No Really), here are the photos I have from BlogHer’12.  To be honest, I don’t have that many since my camera phone mysteriously only works when I take photos with Instagram and I was trying not to completely photo bomb my Instagram account.  Someday soon I will make [...]

Dragons, Urine, Courtney Stodden…Yeah, One of Those Non Sequitor Posts

I hated living in New York when we first moved here.  Despised. Could have had something to do with being pregnant while dragging a 2-year-old up and down three flights of stairs every day.  Possibly. But whatever the reason, I took awhile to adjust. However, I finally realized that I kind of had to make [...]

Against the Grain

In the past few weeks, Facebook has been inundated with photos of everyone’s little darlings posed with a big grin and a lunch box. First day of school! Many of these children were headed off to their first day of preschool. I posted photos of us apple picking, as that was the most school-related activity [...]

No School for You!

Two of my worst flaws are that I am lazy and I am cheap. Today, I discovered which one describes me more.   And the winner is……… LAZY!  Good to know. Hurray for learning something about yourself, right?  And without even paying a therapist!  (Dammit.  There I go being cheap again.) You may have heard that [...]

Rreawr…saucer of milk, table for two!*

*Joke credit goes to M.E.F. As if being a stay at home mom to a 2.5 year old and a newborn is not exhausting enough, the truly draining behavior I experience almost daily here in New York comes from other moms.  Let me note clearly that I am not speaking about ALL other moms.  I [...]

SAHMO2B

Okay, I made up that last part, but I do know that SAHM stands for Stay at Home Mom, so I assume ‘Of Two Boys’ would be ‘O2B.’   Yes, today was my first day all alone with my two little boys.  My husband went back to work today AND my Mother-in-Law left.  It was a [...]
