As a Mom, there are things you find yourself doing time and time again, no matter what your experience tells you. I don’t know if it’s forgetfulness or the blind hope that THIS time, things will be different and your children will finally just get it. The “it” you are hoping they “get” varies, but it always ends up the same for you, …

After having been to what what seems like several hundred birthday parties over the past four months (one of them being my own child’s), I’ve been thinking a lot about the dreaded thank you note. As a kid, I remember writing (being forced to write) a thank you note whenever I received a gift. I think it’s a wonderful thing to …

judging moms

I’m always seeing articles and blog posts being shared and liked on social media about Moms judging Moms. I’ve never personally felt that anyone has judged my parenting skills. I’m not saying I haven’t been judged; I guess I just don’t really pay much attention to it. Who knows what some lady in the grocery store thinks when my kids are running a muck …

With my son’s birthday fast approaching, it’s getting me a little nostalgic. Just a little. It’s hard for me to believe that I’ve been taking care of another human being for almost seven years (not counting my husband). Some days I love how independent my children are getting, so proud of their accomplishments, big or small. Other days, I long for …

grocery shopping

I…. hate….. grocery shopping. From the time my son was an infant, I’ve had this anxiety about going shopping with children in tow. Back then it was because he was a ticking time-bomb ready to blow in a fit of screams to let the entire store know he was hungry. Let me just say, thank goodness for Stop and Shop’s SCAN IT; …

summer "vacation"

By the time the school year comes to an end in June, I welcome summer with the most open of arms you’ve ever seen. No more worrying about making lunch or rushing out the door to miss the school bus or getting a grumpy kid off the bus who “doesn’t remember” what he did that day. Add all of that to …

I am a Mom. For the past seven years, I have survived off an average of four to six hours of restless sleep per night and eating scraps of fruit and crusts of PB&J sandwiches. I have not been able to stay seated for more than three minutes at a time before being needed for something or realizing I forgot …

Hello and welcome! This is my first post on my second Mom blog. I had written another blog on a free blogging website after my first child was born in an attempt to make his incessant crying seem funny so that I didn’t go completely insane. It worked, to a degree, and I kept up with it for a few years …
