You: Your Child’s Role Model

You know how studies always say that parents — not the media or Lady Gaga — are the real role models for children? (Like this one out of The University of Montreal.) I always doubted it. Why would my kid want to be just like me? I am imperfect. I am fallible. I am annoying [...]

We Got a Dog — How Did This Happen?

Last week my husband started sending me photos and links of adoptable dogs. He has been militantly anti-dog even in the face of…well, two cute faces. My girls have been begging for a dog for years. The little one, who is 3, is especially relentless. “Why can’t I have a doggie? I would love her [...]

Where the Boys Are

I have a friend who has two kids under the age of four and a baby on the way. Some afternoons she sits in front of the nursery school — the same one that her son and my daughter attends — while her youngest naps. I am slightly envious, especially since she gets a whole [...]

Finding My Father on eBay

Christmas trees are as individual as fingerprints. Some people favor white trees with multicolored twinkling lights. Others go for a more monochrome look with the lights, the ornaments, and the tree skirt all matching in shades of red, silver or gold.

Falling in a Hole

Last night I fell in a hole. Literally. Remember when a tree fell down in my backyard? When the hurricane hit? Well, at the time we removed the portions of the tree that had fallen on my neighbor’s house and my fence, but we were unable to get the giant root ball or the bottom [...]

Sometimes, my job is pretty cool. This past Monday was one of those times because I got to preview the new Sony Pictures Animation film Arthur Christmas with my husband and my two girls. We got to see the movie at the Sony screening room, which was an experience in itself. (Big, cushy seating, super-loud [...]

I got a card in the mail today from a neighborhood woman. I told her about the miscarriage when she called to ask me to send out an email for a local organization. At the time, she was so sweet, telling me how sorry she was for our loss. We got off the phone and [...]

I have been staying close to home lately. (Long story…) I decided to catch up on scrapbooking. I feel especially guilty about Little Girl’s books — or lack of. Big Girl has about eight completed books including a fairly obsessive pregnancy book with about 30 belly shots. As of last week, Little Girl had one [...]

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 [...]

Big Girl is doing a 50 states lesson in school. The kids are supposed to go out and ask friends and family to send them postcards from whatever states they live in. Cute idea, but could we actually get postcards from every state? I wasn’t sure. I started with my address book. We’ve got family [...]
