How To Improve Your Sanity During the Covid Crisis

It’s unbelievable. While it seemed that life was about to finally get back to normal with the gradual opening of states, all of a sudden an uptick in COVID-19 cases has hit the country like a tidal wave. While many governors have vowed not to completely shut down states again many are still not fully opened. And, to…

Ranking higher on the geek index

I would like to think that our family has a wide variety of interests. And while I give us a lot of credit for trying new things, I do recognize that a lot of our free time is spent on pursuits that fall on the geeky scale. I am OK with that as "geeky" is way cooler than it used to be.…

Gender in media does matter

My son is at a fun age where he can appreciate more movies than a few years ago. So, we have been watching Disney movies lately. He laughs at all the right places in Lilo & Stitch and dances next to me during A Little Mermaid. And I can't tell you how happy I was when he cited Moana as one of his favorites.…

Thinking about drawing circles

Drawing has never been my strong suit. I like to color but have never been skilled at drawing something (even if I get to color it in later). I realize that like any hobby, to enjoy it I would need to practice it. Drawing has never made my list of habits that I want to pick up.…

Please pass the milk

My son and I are having breakfast before I have to take him to camp. I like this extra time together in the morning. And I like what we are eating: Muffins and milk. My son drinks milk like most children do, so when he pulls the cup away from his face, there is a white mustache above his top lip.…

Finding friend time again

I'm a little bummed. I got a text from a faraway friend who is going to be in my city next week, but it happens to be on a day I will not be around. It is one of those spontaneous meetings that just didn't work out and I am trying to take comfort in the fact that I will see her again in a few months for our twice-a-year gals getaway.…

Children on planes

I was flying to San Francisco and had an aisle seat. Next to me (in the middle seat) was a little boy of 6-years-old. The man next to him at the window seat wasn't his dad.…

Affording that future college bill

I am not sure if our son will ever want to go to college. He's a long way off from that day, and by the time he is old enough for higher learning, college may or may not still be seen as necessary for a successful career. Additionally, he has announced that he is building a transporter in our loft, and if that works out I see no reason why he should need college learning for a career. What I am saying is: You never know.…

The teenage summer job is: Studying

When I was a teen, I talked to my Mom about getting a job. She told me that I already had a full-time job, which was to be an excellent student. So, I stayed unemployed and maintained excellent grades. When summer approached, I talked to her again about getting a job, and she reminded me that I would be working my whole life: I should enjoy the summer off while I could.…

Waiting for adult swim

I love watching my Mom swim. She is like a fish in the water - all clean lines and muscles in motion. I am noticeably less graceful in the water, but I can swim. My Mom made sure we had lessons at an early age and knew more than the basics.…

The women with multiple jobs

After dinner one night, we were looking through some photos and videos of when our son was a one-year-old. Looking back at that age felt like a giant oxymoron: It seemed like forever ago; it seemed like it was only yesterday. I was marveling at how much he has grown up and how much fun he is now when I was struck by the thought about how much easier our life has become.…

The bedtimes we keep

When I was little my parents let me choose one night a week to stay up an extra half-hour. I cannot tell you how crazy-special this was to me at the time, especially in the summer when I felt like the sun hadn't even gone down before I was already tucked in. Normally, I chose Friday nights, because we would watch must-see-tv together as a family and I would be able to sleep in on Saturday morning.…

Men at play

I do not understand the way my husband and son play together.



Yes, I have read the research around the importance of fathers and the way they play with their children. I understand that fathers encourage their children to take more risks and explore the world. I also understand how important it is for…

That might not be teenage angst

Take a walk through memory lane with me back to your teenage years. (Sorry, this may be a bumpy ride.) Were they mostly happy? Did you feel misunderstood? Did you feel stressed out? Did you ever feel depressed?…
