A Day Being the Mom I Want to Be

During a knock-down drag-out with my two year old yesterday I thought back to when my oldest was two: the tea parties, the long walks, the days at the zoo.  My current two year old spends half the day in his car seat picking up his older siblings and delivering them to their various schools and activities.  The other half of the day we spend fighting.  We fight as I try to get the chores done, the food cooked, the laundry folded and from the front door, to the car and back....more

A Balancing Act

http://projectsupermom.blogspot.com/2011/05/balancing-act.html Hello, fellow supermoms and friends! It is not without some anguish that I post today to bid you all a adieu for awhile. I know I have been MIA a bit anyway, but I cannot just leave Project Supermom hanging!As I close in on my due date and put the finishing touches on a VERY big office restructure project, my body is feeling the wear and tear. I need to slow down and set things on the back burner...not something I'm very good at doing!...more

She is a machine that can juggle separate schedules, knows your shoe size and together you share an irrational love for British Rom-coms. She is your mother and she is awesome....more

I’m Not A Bad Mom Because I Take Medication

OK, its confession time. I take antidepressants. I took them when I was pregnant with Ronin. I took them when I pumped breastmilk for him for 13 months. I took them when I was pregnant with Ellie. And I’m still taking them while I continue to breastfeed her at 14+ months. I believe this DOES NOT make me a bad mom....more

Coming to Terms with Not Having Children

On a semi-regular, if not daily basis, I find myself scrolling through the checklist above in my head... as if somehow by thinking about and/or stating only the negative attributes that children bring to a couple's life eases the harsh reality that I, indeed, did not get to decide that I wanted a life without children but rather, the decision was made for me. ...more
