Ellie's first day of 2nd grade!

One month down, Nine to go!

The transition from summer fun to public school is never an easy one.  Days of being a beach bum, last minute day trips, and impromptu play dates in the park give way to schedules, folders, and homework.  Add in a new uniform dress code at our school (a public one), and you have a recipe […]

The Last Time

Over the weekend my little man went on strike…against purees.   If it was pureed, he wanted nothing to do with it.  He would shake his head no, turn his head away from me, even physically push the spoon.  What was happening here?!  At ten months he barely had two bottom teeth yet my little guy was, […]

When I found out that The Authentic Athlete, the new sporting goods store in Fairfield, wanted one of our bloggers to check out their new store, I said “pick me pick me!”  Unlike many women who love to go shopping for the latest fashions of the season, I despise shopping, except when it comes to workout […]

Stop and Share the Laughs

That’s why I am completely head-over-heels for Southern Yankee’s adorable onesies and dresses which incorporate […]

Working Mom Guilt

Do you suffer from not-enough-hours-in-the-day syndrome as I do? Do you wish that the precious at home time with your little ones could last as long as the 2:00 hour does at work? Originally, the subject of this post was going to be about “me” time. But to be completely honest, “me” time during this […]

Day 10 and Counting

I should begin by saying that I never imagined that I’d be a stay-at-home mom.  I like working, and we need to be a two paycheck family.  After my company relocated, I left my job at the end of my pregnancy, and I wound up with an “extended maternity leave” (ie, unemployment) for seven months.   […]
