please come back

Dear School Year, Please come back! I know what I said before, but I swear I didn’t mean any of it! I wasn’t in my right mind! I was in a stupor from chaperoning too many field trips, and I didn’t know what I was saying. Please, please come back! I don’t know if I can take any more of the arguing, the …

school supplies

It’s that time of year again – School Supply Shopping Time! It’s also the time of year we start to see a lot of posts on social media from teachers, advocating for parents to buy things on their lists of school supplies, and from parents, complaining about having to buy things from the lists of school supplies. It makes me …

school year

Dear School Year, Listen, we need to talk. I think it’s time for us to take a break. It’s not you! It’s me. I love you, and you know that. I love how you take my kids for seven hours a day, five days a week. You answer their infinite number of questions so I can get a little break. …

inner struggle

When you become a Mother, your life becomes one continuous inner struggle. The day I brought my first child home from the hospital, I found my mind constantly being pulled in two directions, which I suppose I should have seen coming. I knew for nine months that I would be caring for another human life in addition to my own; it’s …

to-do list

I am a big fan of the to-do list. I make one for myself every week. I even write things on it that I’ve already done to make it seem like I’ve accomplished something (and also to remind myself that I did it, and do NOT need to do it again, which sometimes works). Anyway, since children don’t have all that many …

I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. Even as a kid, it didn’t interest me. Hearts and love were “girly” and that just wasn’t me. I even didn’t like cards with glitter long before I became a Mom and hating glitter became the “cool” thing to do. Before my kids began any sort of schooling, I never made too …

music

The other day, I was listening to music on Brown University’s radio station. Since it’s a University station, all of the DJ’s (can I still call them that?) are students. After the song ended, the two DJ’s began discussing the 25th anniversary of the release of Nirvana’s album Nevermind. As they talked about the impact that album had on the …

first day of school

Well, the first day of school has come and gone. It was a great summer, but by the end, the inability of my kids to go more than eight seconds without starting some kind of argument told me that it was time. Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE the summer. No schedules, no homework, no permission slips, no packing lunches. …
