A Thin Line

  Yesterday evening an arbiter sided with the NFL in the case of Adrian Peterson and upheld the decision to ban him from playing for the remainder of the season. I am satisfied with this resolution and with the fact that the NFL seriously addressed this incident. I can only wish that Adrian Peterson also […]

You Can Sue Your Parents?!

I know you can of course, but the thought is mind-boggling to me. Yet that’s exactly what Caitlyn Ricci did. She sued her parents to pay for her college education and she won! And what’s more, she’s not even the first person to try this. (See Rachel Canning link, below). My knee jerk reaction to […]

Arrival at the WOW Summit 2014

I’ve arrived in sunny Orlando for the Moms Meet Wow Summit 2014. I attended the inaugural conference last year in Philadelphia and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to experience it all again! I unfortunately did not blog about the experience last year so I’m excited this time around to share everything that I’ve […]

Why I’m Happy There Will (Maybe) Be a 3rd SATC Movie

So, word on E 73rd St is that there will be a third installment of the Sex and the City movie franchise after all. And I, for one, am really excited to hear this news and would pre-order my ticket right now if I could. The naysayers and critics of the show and the movies […]

My 3-year-old flashes me a mega-watt smile every morning when I wake him up and he still squeals with delight every afternoon when I walk into his class at daycare to pick him. At night he cuddles with me in the recliner clutching his race car cup of milk.  I squeeze him tight and stroke his […]

Mornings at the Crib

My 3 year old still sleeps in his crib. Don’t judge me. It’s mostly a matter of oversight.  Changing his bed just hasn’t ranked high on our priority list of “Fun Things to Do This Summer”. We moved Lila directly to a twin bed at 18 months because we had to. We needed the crib for […]

Because I Can

It is the anniversary-eve of the Sandy Hook tragedy and here I sit, reading in disbelief the news of today’s latest school shooting. I am taken back to the moments one year ago tomorrow, as I grieved with the nation over the insensible loss of  innocent children, all-the-while fighting a rather encompassing and most urgent […]

The Great Birthday Gift Debate

I didn’t even know there was one! But I recently attended a workshop with other mothers of young children in which the focus was how to keep their play spaces organized, functional, and conducive to learning. And during the discussion, one mother raised the question of how to handle the onslaught of toys their kids […]
