I’m not really into imaginary things. I’m pretty practical. I don’t really mind if the kids stop believing in Santa or the Tooth Fairy or the Easter Bunny. I’m barely putting up the pretense. We don’t do God around here. I’m not the person who is going to put that Elf on the Shelf. Am [...]
I’m very lucky. I got to test drive another tablet. Do you have a tablet at home? I realize that I was using my very old iPod touch as a tablet, as I always preferred to read or to play games on it, compared to my Blackberry phone, which I prefer over anything to type [...]
Last month I talked about the new Joy of Learning Playtime Guide on the Fisher-Price website. As I wrote that post, we received a huge delivery with some great toys inside. An end of summer treat for the kids that has made them very happy – and has allowed me to see learning through play [...]

The summer is just whizzing by. Those four weeks of day camp for Oliver and Callum are almost up. The weekends have been filled with swimming pool and park visits, and riding bikes all around. I’m going to blink and then they’ll all be off to Camp England without me. I’m going to Camp NYC [...]

“So what’d your husband and the kids get you for your birthday?” “A sausage stuffer.” “A…what? Sorry? How…um…thoughtful?” Get your mind out of the gutters, people. I wasn’t expecting a gift, so this was a nice surprise. The attachment set for my KitchenAid mixer was on my ‘nice to have one day’ list, so I [...]
So the nursing bras are in the garbage bin. Most of them were almost 7 years old – which sounds ancient, but overall they were only really worn for about a year and a half. Two of them were new, only a year old, and even had underwire – woooo. But they still didn’t support [...]
I used to think babies were scary. That newborns were the most challenging. That I could easily wish away about the first 6 months of their lives, just to get to the part where they were ‘people’ unto themselves. Oh ha ha ha ha ha, old me. You were so naïve. Babies are DA BOMB. [...]
I’ve been thinking recently that I can’t really be called a mom blogger or a mommy blogger (*cringe*) because I don’t usually write blog posts dispensing advice about child rearing. Besides the fact that I don’t actually know what the hell I am doing most of the time, I believe there are about 234,567 right [...]
At the beginning of May, the weather was sunny but cool. I remember this one particular afternoon. A cold wind blew across the playground and right into the baby’s face. Ugh. I thought, forget this, we’re going home to play inside (I’m not going to talk about how much whining and foot stomping took place [...]

The house is steamy in this May heat wave but everyone is asleep so I’m content. It’s bad that I look forward to all three of them being asleep every night, right? But as it happens, as each of the three go down, and the last one’s finally quiet - it’s like I can finally [...]
