The School Pick Up Line: A Line That I Actually Like

If you’ve read my last few posts about kindergarten, you must think I pretty much hate it – the drop offs, the room mom debacle, and the homework…oh, I haven’t even started ranting about homework yet (stay tuned, folks, it’s coming).  But in all reality,  we’re adjusting to kindergarten pretty well.  We’re little tired.  We’re […]

Hand Foot and Mouth Disease: 14 Things You Need to Know

I Don’t Want to be Room Mom

Last night was Open House at Greenleigh’s school [Read: a night where I spent money on a babysitter to sit in teeny-tiny chairs].  About halfway through the evening, my daughter’s teacher casually said something along the lines of, “and we don’t have a Room Mom for this class yet…”.  I instantly averted my eyes.  I […]

HERDEZ: Dinner Just Got a Little Easier

Thanks to HERDEZ for sponsoring today’s discussion. Somehow I forgot how difficult the first month of school is.  The drop offs, the pick ups, the homework…all of which is compounded by having kids at different schools, extracurricular activities (which I can’t seem to stop signing my kids up for), and waking up a full 2 hours […]

Nighttime Parenting

“Moooooooommmmmmyyyyyy!” It’s a sound I instantaneously recognize.  I may not move, but I hear it.  It’s a nighttime call from one of my kids.  Which one, I’m not exactly sure, because in those nighttime hours they all kinda sound the same.  One might think I could rule out the baby since he doesn’t talk yet, […]
