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 [...]

Come On In, Good Stress

Life comes in waves.  The good rolls in, then ebbs away.  The bad finds its way to your shores a little more aggressively, but still retreats to leave you in peace.  In fact, they even all often come in threes: the good, the bad and the waves. Side note: I feel like all of my [...]

Seconds? Oh no, I couldn’t…I’m pregnant.

I expected that raising a 2-year-old in New York City would be an adjustment, coming from the D.C./Maryland area.  I didn’t expect that being pregnant in New York would be any different from my first pregnancy.   I was wrong, oh so wrong. I put on 65 pounds with my first son.  All of our [...]
