Babies On The Brain

Babies On The Brain

November 15, 2011 | Comments (4)

I honestly don’t know what’s gotten into me, but lately I’ve been nostalgic for that time long long ago when my twins were babies.  Perhaps it’s because I keep seeing all these cute little bundles around me everywhere I go.  Or maybe it’s because my hormones are screaming at me even louder as I quickly […]

Who is making the grade?

Who is making the grade?

November 14, 2011 | Comments (4)

When I got the wonderful news that I was expecting a bundle, I immediately put my zygote on the waiting list of a premier Chicago area day care. Sixteen years ago, that wait list was a year long. My then husband and our little family lived in Lakeview and did not have “clout” or high […]

Football Widow? Not Me!

Football Widow? Not Me!

November 13, 2011 | Comments (4)

It’s all in the packaging. Now, don’t get all “But women love football, too” on me…I get that!  Some of my best girl friends are football fans.  And, I have nothing against football.  Many of my fondest childhood memories involve going to Bears games with my Dad. (um…go Bears!) I’m just saying, it’s about the […]

  So, today on the Today show, we found out that the Duggar family is having another child. Yes folks, that would mean 20 children for them. By now, nothing surprises me anymore in the arena of child bearing, so I found it perplexing that SO MANY PEOPLE were up in arms about this. No, […]

Trick or Treat - The Real Sweetness of Halloween

Trick or Treat – The Real Sweetness of Halloween

October 25, 2011 | Comments (4)

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays…long before it became outré cool to go all out decorating with inflated ghosts and floating goblins. Maybe my love for this eerie holiday has something to do with being the daughter of a dentist.  Halloween was the one day where we could actually go out begging […]

We Were Boo-ed

We Were Boo-ed

October 24, 2011 | Comments (1)

The first time it happened, we didn’t even know we’d been boo-ed.  We opened our front door to find an orange, plastic pumpkin with treats and a poem.  The second time it happened, the doorbell rang.  By the time we opened the front door, the goblins were gone.  The treats spilling out of orange, plastic […]

It’s once again one of my absolute favorite times of the year!  Now don’t hate me Clark Griswold, but I must say that I love Halloween almost as much as I love Christmas.  Cause when else can you dress up like a complete bafoon and have it be socially acceptable??!  And, luckily, my kids really […]

October 18, 2011 | Comments (0)

Sports have long been thought of as a vehicle that permits us to rise above differences.  And they do. Many have even gone as far as advocating that sports can cure all that ails relating to intolerance, violence and crisis in our world. I’m not sure I can go that far, but I do feel […]

Time Spent With Our Children...Priceless

Time Spent With Our Children…Priceless

October 17, 2011 | Comments (0)

My hands smell faintly of garlic and cinnamon as I wrap a fresh Band-Aid around the cut on my finger, the result of over-zealous vegetable chopping and poor timing.  A small price to pay for a day spent with my beautiful daughter. The times that I get to spend with my now adult children are […]

A tale of a mother's love

A tale of a mother’s love

October 15, 2011 | Comments (2)

We love everything about our lives in Chicago except the fact that we are far from family. With four kids, I definitely have days where I want to run to my “mommy” for some help, encouragement and a little bit of sanity. Thankfully, I have friends around who are almost available to help fill the […]

Do You Love Fall Like I Love Fall?

Do You Love Fall Like I Love Fall?

October 6, 2011 | Comments (4)

It happens every year in October.  It is as predictable as rain.  I can almost set my watch by it. I get nostalgic.  Not that blue, deep-sigh kind of nostalgic. More of the sweet-bliss kind of nostalgic.  If you love Fall like I love Fall, then, chances are, you know exactly what I am talking […]
