It’s been a while since I posted. There’s a good reason for my absence: Hurricane Sandy swept through my town and the fallout has sucked, to say the least. We live on the South Shore of Long Island in a little beach club community. We live .22 of a mile away from a canal and [...]

This weekend we cleaned the shed and the garage. We had tons of stuff that the girls outgrew including my pack-and-play, a Cozy Coupe, a toddler castle climber, a Wave Climber, and a small Tangled toddler table. I put it up on Craigslist, asking very reasonable prices for everything so it would sell quickly. As [...]

Parenting and Soul Aches

Preface: We’re home and my little one is sleeping…but I wasn’t always this calm today… I put my little one down for a nap around 2 p.m. Ten minutes later I heard a loud thud come from her room. I knew before I opened the door what had happened. She jumped out of the crib. [...]

Like Me But Not Me

I am a damaged person. Strong, willful, smart, successful, caring, understanding — all of the above. But also damaged. My father died on a Wednesday. I was sitting under the bed when a business associate confirmed he was dead. The adults in my life decided to keep that fact from me for a few days. [...]
