"And that's the way love flows, that's the way it goes on a Saturday night..."

Screw you, Rolaids, because you know what spells relief??


For the first time is almost two weeks, PJ went down to sleep without a hitch! And even if it's just for tonight, I'll take it! It's been so hard watching my obviously exhausted Boy struggle to fall asleep the past few nights! So even one night of reprieve is a welcome change for this worried Mama! It must be his super-de-duper-cool, glow-in-the-dark pirate pajamas! :-)

Sigh. I love that Baby Boy!

Anyway, today was a truly nice day (if kind of humid and muggy!). We had a quiet morning at home that featured all three of us enjoying a nap together! We did laundry, played with PJ, and Pete ran errands to the farmers market for some local yumminess and to Toys R' Us to pick up a gift certificate for his cousin's daughter, whose 3rd birthday party PJ and I attended this afternoon! Said party was a great time, the Flyers won, and then, fast forward to right now, where PJ is sleeping sweetly and his Mama is waiting for Pete to get home from work!

For a week that was so filled with tension, stress, and frustration, today was a sweet epilogue. With tomorrow being the fresh start to another week, I am just hoping the sweetness of today can carry over!

And now, what I need to "carry over" is the pile of laundry on my bed to my closet!

My LTYM Experience or How I Accidentally Ended Up On A Stage

The final chapter of my participation in the Listen To Your Mother Show ended with our live performances. I turned 39 on May 3rd and on May 7th, I was on a stage at the beautiful South Orange Performing Arts Center with 12 other souls  (as well as our incredible producers, Sandy, Brooke and Deborah) that handily out-shined the beauty of the space. It all still feels as if it may have been a dream. A very gratifying, emotional dream.

It ended the same way it began, with my worrying about clothes. Before our first rehearsal, I was stressing out knowing that the next morning, I would be meeting a room full of strangers. Not only that, I would be taking a cast picture with these strangers and reading a story of the worst moments of my life. It seemed like too much to be vulnerable about my story and about my precarious self-esteem at the same time.

Despite all of that, I got into my car on a Saturday morning, armed with coffee and the soundtrack to "Hamilton." Clad in the pink a…

Maybe I'm An A-Hole, But I'll Pass On The Pity Date

Do not hate me for this one, guys.

It would seem that "Prom-posals" are the new thing. It's when one teen asks another to prom, but makes it an event. Balloon bouquets, flash-mobs, celeb cameos, flower arrangements- some of these put my actual marriage proposal to shame, much less my awkward heywannagotoprom conversation I had with the guy I was dating my senior year.

It just occurred to me that I should dig up one of my prom pictures. {shudder}

Anyway, back to proms. These extravagant invites have become the stuff of YouTube videos everywhere and, even thought I think the way these have become over-the-top is kind of insane, I'm totally along for the ride. Roses in math class? A flock of minstrels from the glee club to serenade a prom hopeful? I will watch the shit out of that. I think the romanticism is sweet.

At some point, I start to think about PJ as a prom-goer. Right now, while he's in kindergarten, it's hard to know if that's in the cards for him.…

There's still much to learn, so many dreams to earn...

Today is April 2nd, World Autism Awareness Day, and it is Autism Awareness Month.

The month begins on the heels of news from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that Autism is on the rise. 1 in 68 children in the areas followed by the CDC are identified as having an Autism Spectrum Disorder, up from 1 in 88 just a few years ago. In New Jersey, the numbers are far higher then the national average at 1 in 45. 

You can view a summary of the latest CDC report here, but there are two points of the report that stood out to me:
Less than half (44%) of children identified with ASD were evaluated for developmental concerns by the time they were 3 years old.Most children identified with ASD were not diagnosed until after age 4, even though children can be diagnosed as early as age 2.Content source: National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities
PJ was diagnosed with Autism shortly after his second birthday. Pete and I had already utilized an e…
