THIS. RIGHT HERE.. Yes friends, that would be Toys R Us, in Times Square, five days before Christmas. I had to do it. I couldn’t help myself. I wanted to get Ellie a toy to unwrap and play with on Christmas morning. You all remember that feeling, right? You couldn’t wait to get the batteries […]Read More ›
Is it bad that I just purchased something under the guise of being a Christmas present for my mother, but at its core, it is really a gift for me? Let me explain, I was doing some last minute Christmas shopping and I popped into a well-know skincare store that had a great deal -if […]Read More ›
That’s it. I can’t. I give up. I have come to terms with being tired for the rest of my parenting life (that is forever). Why? Well this past weekend was Ellie’s first birthday!!!!!!!!!! See adorable picture below: And this first birthday was preceded by Ellie’s terrible stomach virus (which we now think was Rotovirus) […]Read More ›

Please humor me…I am hoping if I get this all off my chest I will stop moping around…so here goes. As some of you may or may not be aware, Ellie and I live in a somewhat small apartment. And by somewhat small, I mean – IF I DON’T GET A BIGGER APARTMENT REALLY SOON, […]Read More ›
So there is a crusty film on nearly everything I touch in this apartment, particularly – my cell phone, my blackberry, my apartment phone and the remote control. Also, the lower two feet of the stove, the fridge, and the dishwasher. And, the Bumbo, the high chair and 90 percent of Ellie’s toys. I spend […]Read More ›
YOU are taking your morning nap right now in our shared bedroom.
I am sitting naked on the couch in the living room, very excited that I had a chance to separate the 36 pounds of accumulated dirty laundry AND straighten my hair.
I’m naked because I just got out of the shower, and I’m no fool – I know that the moment I creep into our room to get some clean clothes, your big eyes will open and naptime will be over.
