Baby Number Two Is Almost Here (Five Days and Counting)

I officially have five days left until our second little bundle of joy arrives. It is still extremely difficult to allow this revelation to sink in and I cannot appropriately express all of my current feelings in words. I am excited and terrified, happy and anxious, elated and exhausted all at the same time. I […]

Christmas Yea !!!

Well, Christmas day has come and gone but the joy I felt from experiencing that day with my son is still alive in my heart. I have always vowed to never allow myself to get wrapped up in the commercial value of Christmas. When I was single I would always preach to anyone who would […]

Bumps, Falls, Scrapes and Bruises

I honestly thought that this would be an article that I would be writing later in my child’s life, but already, at a ripe age of 11 ½ months I am faced with the continuous heart-stopping incidents of my son falling and hurting himself and he is not even walking on his own yet! What […]

My Kid Is So Competitive/Or Maybe Its Us?

I get so excited this time of year because everyone is in the Christmas spirit. There is holiday music and Christmas parties and the air is just filled with excitement.

Whatever happened to Mommy Time?

Having a child has made me realize that there are many things that become plentiful or abundant in your household as that child grows and matures, and there is one thing that seems to dissipate in the atmosphere forgotten by most and that is “mommy time”. Over these past 10 ½ months I have noticed […]

The Second Time Will Be No Different From the First

The time is quickly approaching when our next little munchkin will join us and ultimately enrich our lives and I have a strong concern about my ability to devote enough attention and time to both of my boys. In efforts to curtail this fear, I have sworn that I will devote as much time to […]

This Year We Are Boycotting Daylight Savings Time

I never really thought much about the change of the clocks these past 36 years until recently. I used to get a little excited with the opportunity to gain one hour in my day but it never served a significant purpose in my life. However, once you have a little one with a very fragile […]

Music To My Ears

You know I never even saw it coming. One moment I was this hip 30-something professional woman who knew all the latest fads and fashions and could sing the hook to the most fly tunes and now I couldn’t tell you one song on the top 10 list for today. I thought this would happen […]
