While all of these SCREAM Dad, I always think of #2 when I think of him. I can hear him saying now, "Just ask, the worst thing that can happen is they'll say no." And, I thought of that exact statement in church this morning. "Open your mouth wide and I will fill it."

Thanks for the post today! I was looking forward to it :)

You are the second best mom I know :) Happy Mother's Day!! Also, did you just say chutzpah?

Excuse me-
It has been drawn to my attention that, when you were talking about plucking your gray hairs,you misused the word 'died.' It should be spelled 'd-y-e-d.'
Creeping is caring.
Sincerely,
Your daughter, the misunderstood teenager.

Tears in my eyes ... and it seems to never end ... time marching on, I mean ... relentlessly.
Thank you for such a fine article.

Thanks for some perspective on life and being a parent. I'm the u8 parent right now worried about whether or not my daughter will be good enough to keep playing. I should know better but I can't help myself. I'll think of you next time and remember it is all for fun! I'm not ready to think about 5 years from now!



So well said! It goes by way to fast! Thanks for y...

So well said! It goes by way to fast! Thanks for your words of encouragement.It is so good to rememember. . Now that Jenna is not able to play becasue of a head concussion playing soccer, when she plays again, I will so much more appreciate her and what you said. Thanks!

This is so well-written. And yes, already, I'm thinking HOW IS IT POSSIBLE my little Maggie is almost done with first grade? How is it possible she's a girl now, not a little girl or a baby?

And who ARE these parents who take this stuff so seriously? Maybe because Maggi'e team last year was so bad, but we just had fun and wanted the kids to learn, that's it (She plays

Ha ha....Patrick had the 'talk' the night of the Reading Sleepover when his brothers were with me. I swear when he came back at 10pm to pick up his younger brother, he was looking sheepish. LOL

Then the year Shane was in 5th grade, as we approched the Reading Sleepover night again, I think Patrick gave Shane the heads up that the "talk" was coming that night.

Fun Stuff! Ryan wanted to go ice skating for the first time, so I told him he had to wait until Saturday when it was less busy. Ken and I spent our Saturday night at the Iceoplex. It didn't turn out half bad. Setar's, Majestic and Mastro's were all there. Had a good time chatting while the kids skated. Ryan was like a pro out there. I guess he will be wanting to hang out at the

Congrats to you and thanks for posting. Some of my coworkers have challenged me to run a 10k with them September 29, which is 18 weeks from now. I wasn’t sure how I felt about it but have decided to train thanks in part to your blog.
You must be so proud, and what a great role model for your children.
Off topic: the most amazing part of your description of your children is

I'm not sure how I found your blog, somewhere in my own search for training ideas for my own 10k in 10 weeks. But I love it! It has been very fun to read and see another "control freak" like myself. I too love the treadmill and I also get beyond anxious thinking of all the things that could happen when I run outside. I have a ton of weight to lose from my last baby, so I'm optimistic about

2009-04-17T14:30:00.000-05:00

You go girl! That is awesome Nikki how great you are doing in your new sport of running! I can relate to your "love of the treadmill". It does feel great to FEEL like you do have CONTROL over some things!

Keep up the good training!

You are inspiring, really. 10K or not, it sounds like you have FAR exceeded what you ever thought you were capable of. That's amazing!! Keep it up!

Good for you--and I wish I had read this yesterday instead of today because I am having a horrible time sticking to Weight Watchers right now. Baby steps indeed!
