Current Events

It’s very anticlimactic to end the school year with a zoom. Nice job kiddos, off you go! Our old lives would be full of festivities and we’d be launched into a summer of all sorts of camps, sporting games and activities. Instead we spent 7ish months living a life we’ve always known, and the last 3ish months in this situation […]

Summertime Sadness

May 27, 2020

In a given year, there countless milestones that we celebrate. There’s the obvious personal ones like birthdays and anniversaries but then there are the more generic ones that comprise the year. Especially when you have kids, Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day take on celebrations that are probably very different than they were sans kids. But each time there’s a […]

Doing it for the kids

May 13, 2020

As parents, the majority of our focus is on our children and their well-being. Or is it? Is this what we convince ourselves as we allow ourselves wine for dealing with our children? Or is this what we say as we rationalize allowing our kids screen time past what we know is the appropriate amount? Is it possible that despite […]

Scared Straight

April 28, 2020

My roller coaster of emotions has now taken me to scared.  I’m scared.  Yesterday I was on a call discussing the re-opening of our business and I started to get very scared.  After all these weeks of confinement, the thought of being around other people is scary.  The thought of being within 6 feet of another human that isn’t in […]

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 […]
