Before I became The Mom I thought that I knew everything. While I never voiced those opinions (for the most part), I was confident that they were accurate and would lead me through motherhood like bunnies hopping through a meadow with unicorns lighting the way. Then came Peanut. I quickly discovered that motherhood was more like…… Continue reading Things I’ve learned

When The Dad and I got married in 2010, we knew that kids were on our horizon. We figured that we’d have 3 and if a 4th showed up, that would be ok. Then we had Peanut. We thought that 1 was not the loneliest number… For us as parents, anyway. Prior to The ‘Nut’s arrival, we led a…… Continue reading Life as a Couple – with kids
Just a quick hello, wishing you and yours a Happy Family Day (or President’s Day, depending on where you are), from The Dad, The Boys and The Mom (me). We’ve been spending the weekend together and loving every nap-free, wide-awake, temper tantrum, frigid temperatures moment of it… But, in all seriousness, love your families, whether…… Continue reading Family Day

We all had a mom, dad and brothers and loved Heath Ledger. In high…… Continue reading Life as a Mom… Without my Mom
I spent the first 26 and a half years of my life as Jennifer. I was not a mom, let alone The Mom. I was not married to The Dad. I was not even Jewish. That’s right. The Jewish Mom spent the majority of her life as a non-practicing Roman Catholic. I actually attended a catholic high…… Continue reading Life as an Imposter
I didn’t make friends easily as a child. Elementary school, where friends should be the easiest to make, was difficult for me. I was never tall enough, skinny enough, pretty enough or in possession of the necessary cool things. I wouldn’t say that I was bullied, I just wasn’t… Popular. Now, that’s not to say…… Continue reading Red Rover, Red Rover, send THAT mommy over!

I’ve always been an anxious person. It’s in my nature, ingrained in my soul. With anxiety comes self doubt, low self-esteem and confidence issues. Until I had kids, I never realized that there was a world without anxiety; that it could be treated, though not cured. Anxiety is, according to my…

So, I’m The Mom. The Jewish Mom. I keep kosher and I cook kosher food. I buy kippot like other moms buy Lego. We go to Shul (the synagogue), we do Kiddush (the blessing over the wine), Motzei (the blessing over the challah), Havdallah (the blessings that separate the Shabbat from the rest of the week) and…… Continue reading Hebr-what?
