Me, my Smugness, and I


We are quite a combination, that smugness and I! We have spent years together and grown to a level of comfort similar to that of an old married couple. It’s the give and take that really showcases our relationship.  For example, Last year, when we took Max to Camp Simcha, […]

August


The calendar turned to August today and like so many other people, I loathe the thought.  It isn’t witty nor original to hate August.  In fact, it is so commonplace that it doesn’t even make sense to really mention it. I even have a beloved cartoon living in my desk […]

My job here is done


Yesterday Sophie took her driving test at the DMV.  I personally like calling it the DMV and refuse to call it the MVC.  I think Governor Christie decided to change the name to fool us into thinking it was some new and improved administrative agency, but it remains the same […]

Momma’s got a big ol’ BUT…


And not the kind that looks good in skinny jeans… Most 13-14 year old boys don’t really want to spend 24 hours a day with Mom. Even Max, who has remained surprisingly cuddly and tolerant into his teen years, has a breaking point.  We have been together going on more than a […]

We’re so big, we even have a guest Blogger

Memory Lane


In the past few days, I have been traveling down memory lane and it is not because I was looking at photo albums or stalking boyfriends on Facebook. I was visiting the memory lane that was Max’s medical history.  It started in the car Saturday afternoon when I was alone […]

Happy Birthday to Me?


This is my birthday week.  On Sunday February 23, 2014, I will turn 47.  Yesterday while walking Charlie through the ice and sort-of melting snow and rain, I realized that I will have lived through 47 winters, 47 summers, 47 falls and 47 springs, but every year I still forget […]

Just sayin’


Thinking of creating a new life… since I can’t actually create a human life – nor would I even want to at this point…that mess is just plain gross people- and I already have enough people.  I do suddenly want a kitten for some reason.  I suppose it is because […]

Parenting Books


I am addicted. I have read so many parenting books that I can’t even keep them all in my library. I read one after another after another and swear that each one will be the ONE. Perhaps I should have my Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Kindle accounts revoked? I will read any […]
