Birthday Season is Here

Big Guy’s birthday is October 1 (coincidentally, he was born on the day that DisneyWorld opened – must have been fate). Bug’s birthday is October 29. We also have various sibling, niece, nephew, aunt, friend birthdays over the next month and half. Time to start the shopping… Tomorrow, Bug and I are going to have […]

Is it considered bad parenting…

To laugh at your toddler while he’s having a wild, unexplainable and ridiculous tantrum? Bug woke up too early, spent the morning in the sun and didn’t nap. Bad, bad, bad combination. By late afternoon, everything was a giant drama. So, when he melted down because LadyBug decided to actually MOVE the Cozy Coupe she […]

Enough is Enough

So, turns out Bug is even sicker. His asthma got worse and we had to bring him to the Dr, who put him on steroids and more albuterol (every 4 hours for 4 days – sigh). He’s going to need an inahler (toddler version) for the rest of the winter to try to avoid this […]

Rock-a-Bye Baby

The kids are sick and they’re too young for cold medicine. They’re just miserable. LadyBug woke up every 20 minutes to an hour last night. It was awful. Today, Big Guy stayed home (thank goodness) and we took turns going between napping and mopping up after drooly, snotty, whiny little kids. Bug milked it for […]

Rain, Rain, Go Away

I don’t know how it’s going in the rest of the country, but here in the Northeast it feels like it has been raining forever. I think we’ve easily had rain almost every day for over a month. Don’t get me wrong, rain is good. Plants need rain, yada, yada. But, for a mom home […]

Love-Dovey

I was concerned about Bug’s (aka Little Guy) reaction to getting a new baby sister. He was used to being the center of the attention and all that, plus, he was pretty young when she was born (20 months). She’s 8 months old now and he has been the most loving older brother you could […]

Am I Crazy?

So, tomorrow I set off for Maine with my two kids and my 10-year-old niece. It’s just over 2 hours away and I’m a bit concerned that the car ride is going to be a nightmare. The doting grandparents will be on hand at the other end to help out, but I am a bit […]

Can we post it? Yes we can!

Raising kids has brought the question of nature vs. nurture to the forefront of my mind.  I definitely have been trying to be aware of the toys, media, etc., my kids are exposed to.  I’m learning that it’s nearly impossible, because even at 21 months, Little Guy is highly influenced by his grandparents (over whom […]

New addition

I am back yet again, this time with a new baby girl!  I had forgotten what a newborn is like… always eating and sleeping and eating and eating. It’s funny because now that I have a toddler, the newborn seems like a piece of cake.  Sure, she’s a diva who doesn’t want to be put […]

P.S.

Little Guy is finally walking. We can all breathe a sigh of relief because he’s not so little any more and was getting too big to carry everywhere!
