If I am to be honest, Valentine’s Day is a far bigger deal for my daughters than it is for my husband and me. It seems that the school enjoys promoting this should-be celebration of undying love between two lovers as a vehicle to express friendship between classmates. Although we do not officially celebrate Valentine’s…

How are you? I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but here in New Jersey there is so much snow! I am enjoying it too - it's so pretty. My son and I had a wonderful and fun snow fight while we were shoveling the driveway - a great way to connect with…Continue

With Valentine’s Day around the corner and references to the celebration of love and romance to be seen everywhere, I thought that it was timely to finally read this book that has been – repeatedly – recommended over the years.

I've by now heard all this silly controversy over Amy Chau's book Tiger Mom, or whatever it's called. I happened to be at Yale for a book signing so thought I would go meet this woman.

The kids crept in to wake us up at 6 a.m today, just as they promised.
I'm sure they'd been up much longer, but they know the rules - no one goes downstairs on Christmas morning before 6 a.m.
Soon after, the squeals and oohs and ahhs began. But not for the presents I expected.
The big-ticket items were appreciated, of course. But my son's favorite gift wasn't the Wii game we splurged on. It was a Mario figurine stocking stuffer from Santa. ("It can move its…Continue

Remember that time when, 'the one' who ripped your heart out and sent you into a spiraling self-destructive time bomb fueled by excessive exercise, starvation, drinking and drugs, turned around just when you'd managed to smile and half-live, and wanted you back?
Remember when, there weren't enough devastatingly painful 'love' songs that you…

Okay, so you're a mom...you love those kids and are totally dedicated to them and would do anything for them. And, shouldn't one of those things include taking excellent care of one of the most important people in their lives? Yes, I'm talking about YOU, my dear!
Motherhood is one of the most cherished, demanding, and…
