mom knows jack

Jack turned four last weekend, and we celebrated with pizza, cake, ice cream, balloons, presents, and MONSTER JAM! We had a total blast, and as of yesterday, we’re still recovering. My plan, (don’t laugh) now that Jack is four, is to start making him sit for practical homeschool lessons. We’ve been focusing on letters and […]

What’s new since my last update post? A whole lot I’m sure, but a lot is also the same which is kinda great. Jeremy turns 32 on the 13th, and he doesn’t want me to talk about it. He’s asked for no cake and no fuss. But of course, he’ll get both. Jack is rounding […]

Spring semester kicks off next week, which means I’m on the last leg of my winter break. I have been enjoying a slower pace at home and at work, although I am in no way short on chores, projects, and to-do lists. I did not get as much accomplished during my break as I would […]

Here I sit, on the eve of my second week of that work/school/mom/wife/ life, with my course texts, and class notes, and my large cup of coffee in front of me. The baby has been in bed for an hour now, and I just finished mopping the kitchen flIoor that I had been previously  neglecting. I’m […]

Jack is closer to being a two-year-old, then he is to a one-year-old. A fact which continues to boggle my mind daily.  Where did this big boy come from? He was 30 pounds at his last baby well checkup. It seems like another lifetime ago that I was counting his breaths as his tiny 3-pound […]

It’s wet outside. I realize that this is California, and I should not be complaining about the rain we are in such desperate need of, but we are cooped up in the house all day with a cranky toddler who’s got cabin fever, and this is only the middle of January. All that being said, […]

Here’s the thing about me…I don’t drive. I have never had a drivers licence, or even a learner’s permit, at any point in my life. Driving is my greatest fear. Wherever, I go either my husband or my mother in law take me. Sometimes, I just walk. This arrangement has worked well for me, with little complaint from others, […]
