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 [...]

As someone who says she is as natural as possible, it would seem like a [...]

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of reading an excerpt from Tina Fey’s new book, Bossypants, which was posted all over my Facebook network. Part of a blog post from Baby Meets City, the excerpt was a beautiful, touching, funny poem called The Mother’s Prayer for its Daughter. I read through it alternating between [...]

Heard in the Park

Little Girl: Mommy, are my friends going to be there today? Mommy: Yes, and all the little babies, too. Baby C. will be there. Baby J. will be there. Baby G. will be there. Little Girl: Mommy, why my friends have babies and I don’t. Mommy, I want a baby, too! Mommy: You need to [...]

I know people love reading about drama. Love it. It’s what makes people come back to a blog over and over again. Sort of like rubbernecking a horrible accident. You look because, in a way, you’re happy that it’s not you. Plus, you have something to tell your friends about. This blog post is not [...]
