My Baby’s Birthday

Little Girl turns three this week. It’s so cliche to ask, but how did that happen? It seems like only yesterday that I was walking the halls of the maternity wing, willing her to move down and out into the world, and now she’s old enough to talk and sing and laugh. She’s even become […]

Not Ready For a Bed

Little Girl has been tented since she launched herself out of the crib and broke her collar bone. Horrible, terrible experience, and one that makes me shudder to this day. A few months ago, she made a teeny, tiny hole in the mesh. Over time, the hole got larger, but it was never a danger […]

Food: Keep On Trying

Big Girl, as I have mentioned before, is a great eater. She will try anything. She likes most of what she tries. Little Girl is not her sister. Yes, she eats broccoli and sweet potatoes. She loves hummus. But she’s not one to just jump at the chance to try kale, for example. This week, […]

My Kid is Funny

I’ve said it many times: Big Girl is just like me — serious, quiet, thoughtful. Little Girl, however, is a riot. She’s funny, and she knows it. Wednesday she started school. I asked her if she was finally going to make me a picture. (Her running joke all summer was that all the pictures she […]

When I got pregnant with Big Girl I saw three medical professionals: my midwife, a psychologist, and a nutritionist. As I have mentioned before, I have struggled with food issues all my life and I wanted to make sure I was eating enough and not getting too crazy. The nutritionist spend about an hour or […]

Today the Car is Our Crib

I’ll admit it. I could never understand my friends who napped their kids in the car. I put Big Girl into or on anything — a crib, a pack and play, a stroller, a bed, my shoulder, the floor– told her to nap and she napped. She once fell asleep in the middle of an […]

Last night I went to spin class and the teacher played an entire set of Billy Joel songs. Aside from loving it and wanting to sing along, it also reminded me of a stupid mistake I made when I first gave birth. Billy Joel was playing Shea Stadium — concerts that were being billed as […]
