Copping Out

The other morning, as I was escorting my twins to kindergarten, a friend started chatting up the cop who was acting as the crossing guard.

“How do you know him so well?” I asked.

“He almost gave me a ticket the other day,” she said with a wink.

 

Clearly, she'd charmed the pants off the officer—something I’ve never quite learned to do.

 

My relationship with law enforcement has always been a bit more contentious than that and began, as it does for…

Private Parts

This is what you get when you ignore your three young children at the library: a delightful book, selected by your 2-year-old, entitled, “Amazing You!: Getting Smart About Your Private Parts.”

 

This windfall results from allowing your kids to roam freely through the children’s section, rooting among the shelves, littering the tables and floor with books and fondling the library’s computer keyboard—your 2-year-old may have even licked it—while you try to sort out how to…

BlackBerry Best Seller

I had read that Bethenny Frankel, former “Real Housewives of New York City” star and Skinnygirl mogul, had tapped out her best-selling but probably not very literate books (though I haven’t read them) bit by bit on her BlackBerry, stealing moments in between being styled for photo shoots, negotiating multimillion-dollar deals, and mixing margaritas. So I thought I would try it myself—maybe…

Good Times

Last night, our friends and local social directors offered what one partygoer later described as the “perfect antidote for the winter blahs”: a “serenade your sweetheart” karaoke bash in their living room.

 

“I’m so looking forward to this,” I told Cyndi a few days before she hosted the party with her husband, Tom. …

Let It Sizzle

Between our son’s persistent earache, the ongoing frigid temperatures and my husband’s extended coaching hours—though his basketball team is competing for the championship and I’m trying to be enthusiastic—we’ve had a trying week. So I decided to boost our spirits tonight with some comfort food. I felt our travails called for…

We're Going "Gangnam Style"

The other day when our twins’ kindergarten classmate came to visit, he wanted to do it “Gangnam Style.” And so we did.

 

“Oh, they play this at gym class!” my daughter, 6, exclaimed when “Eh—sexy lady” leaked from my MacBook’s meager speakers. In trying to download “Gangnam Style” from iTunes, I discovered my account had been shut down since my credit card had been stolen with my…
