My Favorite Thing To Do With My Mommy
My 4yr old made me a banner at school this week for Mother's Day.  It had a sweet hand print, an adorable picture of him and a statement about his favorite thing to do with his mommy.  I was all smiles until I got to the end of it.  "My favorite thing to do...

A Wet Hot American Post-Kids Friday Night
Ok, so it’s 7:22pm on a Friday night. Let me guess. You and
your spouse are finishing up bedtime with the kids and fantasizing. Not of a
romantic dinner out and hours of nookie after. No, no, no, the post-kids Friday

Mommy Tracked
It is Thursday at 1:59pm and I am watching an April rain storm from my sunroom with a piping hot cup of tea in hand.  The kids are upstairs napping and I am sitting in peace, happily writing.  I didn't wake up 2 hours before my kids did this morning, I didn...

Remember When
I think I'm officially in a new era.  It started to hit me after having my first kid, but at that point we still lived in the city and we still mostly ran around with the same crowd, many of whom were still single.  But now, 2 kids and a move to the suburbs...

The New Normal
After almost 15 weeks at home with my two kids, I'm officially back at work.  I was riddled with angst in the weeks leading up to "the day."  The thought of coming back made me physically nauseous, made me regularly cry.  I just couldn't imagine actually wa...
