Be a Friend to Make a Friend

Today is a snow day here in New York. Hubby got up and, because he takes a train to work, was able to go off to the city. Me? I was at home with both kids. No babysitters in sight. We did a bunch of stuff to keep busy and have fun. I had Big [...]

No Nuggets = Bad Host?

When I go to playdates the other moms almost always put out one or more of the following: Chicken fingers, French fries, hotdogs, and macaroni and cheese. And I always serve Little Girl the same thing: Whatever I’m eating. a sandwich, some cheese and crackers, a little meat rolled up, some fruit. She doesn’t eat [...]
