Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I am a 44-year-old wife, mother, copy editor, runner, band groupie, movie nut and Scrabble champ. I was born in Detroit, grew up in its suburbs and moved to Chicago when I was 25. Ten years, a husband and two children later, the promise of good schools and a big back yard led us back to the ‘burbs. While I’ve grown to love our quaint little town in Chicago’s South Suburbs, I’ll always be a city girl at heart.

When I was a young girl, my grandmother told me — and showed me by example — to always look for the good in people. What she didn’t mention was how hard it would be to find in some cases.

I have received one trophy in my 44 years — for winning the fourth-grade spelling bee at my elementary school. As I wistfully recall, I would have won the school-wide spelling bee too if my nervousness hadn’t gotten the better of me. In the final round, I transposed the letters “u” and “a” in “guard” (I still get a little insecure when I have to write or type that word).

I know it sounds silly, but I’m proud of my trophy. I won it for doing something better than anyone else (well, at…

Here’s to You, Dad

Posted on May 18, 2012 at 1:44pm 0 Comments

When I was a young girl, about 7, my dad took me to lunch at Carl’s Chop House, the venerable (and now closed) steakhouse on Grand River in Detroit. I remember being extremely excited about my new shoes: denim platform sandals emblazoned with bright red cherries. But I recall being even more thrilled about getting to go on a “date” with my dad.

I worshipped my father, as most little girls do. He was my hero: a handsome, jovial Detroit police officer and World War II veteran, who was…
