Pies, Tarts, and Croissants, oh my!

As I have mentioned before, I’m married to a wonderful husband who loves to cook and enjoys preparing delicious fancy meals for me.  This past Thanksgiving, as usual my husband did all of the cooking while I played with the kiddos and hung out with the family.  There was one change this year though, my husband … Continue reading

Redefining sleep-training

I have a confession to make. Last night when my husband was asleep, I put my crying newborn within millimeters of his face, just to see how he would respond. The response?  Nothing.  Not even a flutter of an eyelid. Isn’t that amazing? I don’t consider myself a light sleeper.  I used to think I … Continue reading

Pain Control

“On a scale of 1-10, where would you rate your pain?” the nurse asked me. “Ummm. a 7.”  I answered, somewhat sheepishly. “So you need something for pain right now?” She quipped with one eyebrow raised dubiously. “Well, not exactly.  I’m not in pain…at this moment, in between contractions.  But when the contractions come, it … Continue reading

Vacation

We just got back from a 3 day vacation and as we were driving back home, my husband asked me if I had fun.  I just sighed.  There is no easy answer to that question. In our life before kids, we often would go on spontaneous romantic weekend trips, find a cute B&B, spend all … Continue reading

Letter to myself: 18 years old

To 18-year-old me, As we enter 2013, there are a few things that I wanted to tell you. First, let’s talk about your eyebrows.  You might want to check out a salon for something called waxing or threading.  Seriously, don’t wait until you are 25 years old to get those furry caterpillars professionally groomed. But … Continue reading

The Christmas Song Game

When it comes to dumb random luck, I have none.  Zippo.  My husband, on the other hand, seems to have fairy gold dust sprinkled on his head on a regular basis or something because he’s one of those lucky people who always wins random big prizes (a free iPad, tickets to the Broadway musical Rent, … Continue reading

Famous footwear

Tonight as my daughter was brushing her teeth, she asked me, “Mommy, can I wear my boots to school tomorrow?” Puzzled, I replied, “What boots?  You don’t own boots.”     She whined, “Yes I DO.  I DO have boots.  I want to wear them tomorrow!!!” I thought about it for a bit and said, … Continue reading

Christmas Cards

Every year, my husband and I go through the same dialogue. Me: “Should we send out Christmas cards this year?” Him: grunt, shrug. “Sure.” Me: “Will you help me write messages and addresses, put on stamps?” Him: “No, I don’t think so.  Let’s not do cards this year. “ Me: “Hmmm…well…yeah, let’s order some cards. … Continue reading

Thanksgiving

I’ve been blessed with one of those awesome spouses who loves to cook and is extremely good at it.  In fact, in the 7.5 years that we’ve been married, I’ve probably have done less than 10% of the meal preparation.  Even when he was a busy surgical resident, it was not unusual for my husband … Continue reading
