The Life

August 8, 2013

This is THE life I always wanted. As a little girl, when I closed my eyes and dreamt of something more, something better, this is what I dreamed of. Sure, I could have more money so I could buy more things. Things? Sure, my kids could be better behaved. Sure, in my dreams I was ten pounds lighter. But essentially […]

Parenting 101

August 6, 2013

There are many things I’ve learned since becoming a parent. Like clothes sizes (i.e. 3 months) don’t always correspond with the age of the child. To some major things that I never expected. 1. Discipline There are many gray areas when it comes to discipline. That isn’t my way of cheating the system, although I think parents sometimes feel this […]

My Kiddos

July 26, 2013

Sometimes, usually when my kids are fast asleep, I think about how great they are. No I haven’t ingested an illegal substance or fallen off my rocker. I really think they are great. It’s no secret, raising kids is HARD. I’m exhausted all the time. Keeping everything in order is taxing in a way I can’t even articulate. Disciplining is […]

The other shoe dropped, it just had nothing to do with wedding planning…by Jamie (Polakoff) Lasko

July 25, 2013

April was supposed to be our month. We both celebrate birthdays in April. We’d been on our house search and our goal was to buy something by April—plenty of time to close and move in before the wedding. Well, April was our month alright, just not remotely how we imagined… April 1st—I get the most heebie-jeebie, skin-crawly sensation in my […]

And the winner is… (by Mara Unterberger)

July 22, 2013

I have had quite the long history with my boobs. I can remember from a young age wanting to hide them because I bloomed early. When my mom first encouraged me to wear a bra I insisted on only wearing sports bras because I felt that they weren’t really bras. Once I realized what control my boobs had over men […]

My Boobs are All Mine!

July 18, 2013

After a crazy roller coaster of feelings, I’m just about done nursing Noah. In some ways I feel like celebrating, bring on the champagne!!! In other ways I feel like folding up into the fetal position and bawling. I have waited for 38 weeks of pregnancy and almost seven months with the baby to have my body back. I have […]

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 […]

How can you really let it go?

July 1, 2013

Today in Yoga my teacher talked about Tarka, writing down three things (as she put it, things that were “no bueno”) that you are not so proud of that you did and then destroy the paper. It’s like coming to terms with the things you have done that were less than best, instantly I thought about the stank eye I […]

Field Trip?!?!?!

June 27, 2013

Today Drew’s camp had their first FIELD TRIP!!! I’ve barely come to terms with swim lessons, and now you are going to throw a field trip at me!!?? There’s two overwhelming thoughts that came to mind. First is that I clearly have to keep him at home. He is not ready for a public outing, on school buses that have […]

Damn you nice weather!!!

June 11, 2013

Ah, the swimming pool…my arch nemesis. We meet again. The agony that I go through over the swimming pool keeps evolving with each summer. Now I am faced with a beautiful day, kids with no schedules and a free pool at my disposal. What’s a girl to do?!? Last year I was shaking in my boots, or flip flops, over […]
