I’m not sure why I picked NOW to be a good time to write a post. I’m not even sure that I want to write posts anymore – because to write about parenting assumes that I actually know what I’m doing, and I absolutely do NOT know what I’m doing! That aside, a lot has… Continue reading Summer is here, and I’m trying!
I totally get that “last baby” cliche. With the twins, I couldn’t wait for their next milestones. I was impatient for them to move to the next stage, partially because the stage they had been in, being 2 of them, was so hard and I always hoped the next stage would be easier!

Life has been hectic. I’m a rag doll, limbs stretched out in all directions. I can only stretch so far, and yet, I’m managing. I’m parenting 3, teaching 22, nursing 1.

Our main reason was our sanity. It seems much easier to wake up the kids in their PJs and bring them down… Continue reading Misbehaving Dancers
I can’t believe I’m at the end. I do have three more weeks to go, but at this point, I’m already thinking about/dreaming about/planning for life in 5th grade, so it might as well already be here. It’s pretty pathetic that our country’s maternity/paternity policy sucks, and I find it somewhat infuriating that mothers who… Continue reading Mourning the end of maternity leave
