This week we spent the early evening at Brooklyn Bowl, which, to me, is really just a club that happens to also have bowling lanes. It was a launch party event for Yo Gabba Gabba’s live show. My big girl has watched the show. My baby, who won’t turn two until the end of June, [...]

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics this week released a report about perfumes and — yes I know this is cliché — it definitely stinks. The organization assessed 17 different perfumes, which listed “fragrance” on their labels. On average, there were 14 different unlisted ingredients in each of the perfumes. The reason: manufacturers are not required [...]

I work in a very nice office. I’ve got a desk and chair, a large LCD monitor, a file cabinet and a soft, cushy easy chair that I never seem to find time to sit in. It’s upstairs in the front of the house, though, so I keep my windows closed during the day to [...]

My husband came home from the store today with a surprise. One that made me smile really widely: A compost bin! Finally! He gave it to me right before dinner so all the non-meat scraps that are sitting on the table will soon find a new home. I can’t wait to see how this is [...]

I spent Friday in the city at the ASJA Writer’s Conference, which took place at the Roosevelt Hotel. Great conference, I was excited to see all the people I talk to on Facebook and on our online forum. Once I left the hotel, though, and made my way down 45th Street I was really excited. [...]

Anyone who has been reading for a while knows that when I get hurt it’s usually in some weird, obscure way. Something that prompts an insurance letter being sent out. The letters always want to know if someone else is responsible for the injury. Because hey, how else could you get a black eye and [...]

I’m starting to think about Little Girl’s second birthday. It’s only three-and-a-half months away. I need to figure out what kind of party I am having, (if anything), and get invitations. Then I’ll need to figure out favors, decide on the guest list (do I invite her friends’ older siblings), and pick a date and [...]

The One Small Change I made last month is still rolling along, and I’m actually trying to expand my milk cap phobia to include other carton drinks such as orange juice. It was a good change, so I really needed something innovative for this month. The problem: We already do a lot for the environment. [...]

One of the things I dislike the most about the green movement is the fact that so many people discount it. Case in point: This week a new study came out from The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. Pew surveyed more than 1,500 Americans via telephone, asking them about their biggest [...]
