Taking Off the Training Wheels — Mommy Daze

Why didn’t anyone tell me it was going to be so hard watching my kids fall? Maybe it’s one of those ‘understood’ mom secrets that we don’t share with expectant mothers. Like the one about how incredibly horrible that first bowel movement is going to be after childbirth. We never tell pregnant mothers about that, though we really should.

School Burn—Out — Mommy Daze

With the recent warm temperatures we’ve had, the kids and I got pretty excited for Spring. But in typical Maryland fashion, March looks like it’s going to be a rollercoaster of a weather ride that is making Spring feel even farther away. Our days are filled with hectic mornings, rushing to school drop-offs and pickups, and squeezing in errands in between. Then evenings go by fast with homework, baths, dinner and a short bedtime routine because everyone’s tired and out of patience. So how do I survive the next 14 or so weeks of school when both the kids and I seem to already be burnt out on the daily routine?

Tough Lessons on Imperfection— Mommy Daze

Recently my oldest son had to learn the hard lesson of imperfection. I say “hard” because I’m a perfectionist, and sadly, he seems to have inherited the same trait. He hates when he can’t finish something -- so do I. He hates when he gets distracted from his work -- so do I. He will stress himself out to get something just right -- so do I.
