Tragedy Close to Home

May 10, 2016

Recently there was a woman who was killed driving home with her family from a close vacation spot who was hit by a random bullet. That bullet didn’t have her in mind, but it hit her nonetheless. Her two children will now grow up without a mother and her husband instantly became a widower all because of a random bullet. […]

Trayvon Martin by My Anonymously Wonderful Friend

July 17, 2013

When I was asked to write about the recent George Zimmerman verdict, I hesitated a moment. I’m not an attorney. I don’t have expertise in the law or criminal justice. I’ve not experienced violence (thank G-d), nor would I suggest that I can even begin to understand the experience of being a young black male (or a half-white-half-Latino-male for that […]

Pornography Now Playing by Lindsay Moses

June 21, 2013

I have never considered myself to be prude. I have no problem openly discussing the birds and the bees. I don’t shy away from racy photos or videos…until one day, two months ago when I just about hurled. There we were, Ryder and I at our local Chicago Public Library. A few days earlier I had reserved some books on […]

Is it all about boobs?

May 16, 2013

Recently Angelina Jolie came out to the world to share something so very personal. I am blown away by the strength of a woman who is noted for her sexuality. She has made a business out of pouty lips and large breasts. To tell the world that she had a double mastectomy could in some ways cast a negative cloud […]

End of Innocence

April 22, 2013

My mom talks about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy as an end of their innocence. After that point, things were never the same. When my generation was born, we were born into a world where Presidents, civil rights leaders and musicians were gunned down and killed. We were never as innocent as our parents. In our lifetime, schools […]

Is my belly big enough to house three children?

April 16, 2013

Most mothers worry while they are pregnant. Have they felt the baby kick in awhile? Will everything come back alright from the test they took? How will the delivery go for both parties? In so many ways, pregnancy is one of the few times that you can really protect your children. You don’t have to worry as much about the […]

I have had two summer babies. And the biggest drawback with a summer baby is the fact that you don’t want to be cooped up in the house on a gorgeous day. Or the fact that you can’t swim, which is more annoying when you have one child that is swimming with his dad and having a blast. Having a […]

The disclaimer is that I am pregnant and my hormones are a wreck but it doesn’t change the fact that what happened in Connecticut this morning was a horrific tragedy. It’s hard to be compassionate and open to the information without losing yourself in the tragedy. Columbine was one of the most tragic events I can think of in my […]

Parenting is a Marathon

October 8, 2012

This past weekend one of my closest friends accomplished a very difficult goal through hard work and determination. Rachel, a.k.a. Single Gal’s Two Cents, successfully completed the Chicago Marathon. All weekend long my brain tried grasping the dedication and fortitude it took to go through with such a goal. I reminded Rachel many times how proud I am of her […]

It’s innocent, right?

July 24, 2012

I had the subject of guns on my blogging “to do” list and then this horrific tragedy happened in Colorado. I thought no better time than the present to address my concerns about guns. I try to avoid political topics while sometimes bringing up controversial parenting issues. I really hope that I get some feedback on this matter. For Drew’s […]
