When This Is All Over…

I don’t know about you but there’s a phrase that I’ve noticed on the rise in virtual conversations I’ve been having and it’s, “when this is all over…” I’ve said it myself many, many, many times. When this is all over I’m going to get my eyebrows done, I’m going to appreciate social interaction more…I’veContinue reading “When This Is All Over…”

What I’ve Learned About Myself in the Face of Crisis

How’s everyone doing? Are you practicing social distancing? Quarantining? I’ve noticed a lot of people on social media using those terms interchangeably. I suppose to some people that’s what it feels like, but when I read someone’s in quarantine I think, “Oh goodness, are they worried they have the virus?” When really all they meanContinue reading “What I’ve Learned About Myself in the Face of Crisis”

Love Potion #9

I was Izzy’s party mom on Friday. Her class is small enough that only one parent signs up per party (last year Nicky’s class had two parents to most parties). Also…they’re two years old, so I didn’t have to be as intense. As I know with my one two year old, they can drag outContinue reading “Love Potion #9”

Bad Parenting

My sister sent this to me today and it did indeed make me feel better about my parenting skills. Since the first follow-up appointment with the pediatrician (about a week after giving birth) I have never felt good enough as a mother. Because there’s always something you should do that you’re not or something youContinue reading “Bad Parenting”


Today’s activity? Icebergs. I filled an old lunch meat container halfway with water, popped on the lid and stuck it in the freezer. When we were ready I put it on the counter for a few minutes to let it thaw enough to come right out of the container. Then we sprinkled some salt onContinue reading “Icebergs”

Monkey Bread

Our biggest success to date – delicious! We used this recipe and it worked fantastically. I remember making monkey bread as a kid and thought it was pretty simple so I have tried many times to make it without a recipe…I highly recommend following a recipe. However I remember it being done apparently is not theContinue reading “Monkey Bread”

Rainbow Mom

First off – sorry it’s been so long. But – I’m pregnant and the first three months were rough! So I’m trying to get back into the swing of things, writing on here and also working on my story(ies). A few weeks ago, Nicky started to talk about getting a “rainbow mom” and I didn’tContinue reading “Rainbow Mom”

Partying for Partying’s Sake

Nicky has been wanting to have a party since this past summer when he read the book “Monster Party”. When I’m in the office he comes in and starts drawing on paper saying he’s making invitations. Finally, a few days after Christmas he mentioned a party and I thought, “why not?” We have ready madeContinue reading “Partying for Partying’s Sake”
