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…

The content that children choose to watch

When I was little (yes, I realize any sentence that starts out that way makes me instantly sound old, but I've made my peace with that), we watched Saturday Morning Cartoons. It was such a treat at the time - cartoons on television for hours and hours and hours. And we woke up early just to see them: Voltron, Snorks, Shirt Tails,…

How could I possibly be this tired?

I am tired. No, I'm not even going to try out that trick in which I tell myself that I am not tired and convince myself through the power of positive thinking.



This is why I am tired:…

Thinking in future terms

My son is seven. He has long legs and has developed strong arms from swimming. He has soft, floppy, light brown hair and dark brown eyes. There is a smattering of freckles under his eyes and across his nose from spending summer outside. He laughs easily and often.…

The bedtime I've imposed upon you

My son knows a lot of things: He knows how to tell time (both analogue and digital), how our hemisphere is tilted closer to the sun in the summer, that he gets a break from school through most of June-August, and (of course) he knows how important sleep is.…

When Mom gives you advice...

A few weeks ago I wrote about the importance of maintaining bedtime because I am obsessed with sleep. (But in reality, aren't most parents obsessed with sleep?) Then I was reminded that my amazing Mother reads my blog. She texted me to say it would be a good idea to extend my son's bedtime if he spends the…

What am I supposed to be now?

I remember being about 14 years old and my Mom was reading out the newly minted label for my generation. She called out how we wanted to save the world, how we were an adaptable group and how we were so different than the Gen Xers that came before us. I remember that last part because my brother was at the tail end of the Gen Xers and I liked that he and I were technically in different generations.…

That first time your relationship with your parents changed

My son has had a lot of milestones: First crawl, first tooth, first steps, first day of school, first fall from his bike, first lost tooth...and he probably won't remember most of them. But that's OK, because he has a whole other set of milestones coming his way. Some are major (first time driving, first day of high…

The fad of wellness

A few weeks ago, I went to a conference with my Mom to learn more about blogging. (Once you are done reading this, you should check hers out, it is witty and funny and a good read.) We had a blast. We learned a lot (I have homework now), we talked a lot (I love knowing more about my Mom) and we listened to a lot of people talk about wellness (which was a little odd, considering it was a…

Music lessons for the digital age

When I was in fifth grade, I left my lunch early every Wednesday to take a 40-minute piano lesson with Sister Ruth. She was a retired nun and there was an extra cell in the convent attached to our school that had a lot of windows and an upright piano. She was very kind, but I found the process of learning the piano to be painfully slow.…

The parenting advice that didn't work

When people ask me about my blog, I tell them it is a collection of parenting research and tips. If they dig in further, I usually point out that not all tips are created equal - some may work for your family, but won't work for mine.…

Waiting to be a parent

There is no end to the debate on what the "right" age is to be a parent: Do you have your children in your 20s so you have the most amount of energy to chase after them? Or do you have them in your 30s, when you feel a little more settled and are at your peak health (and before you cross over to the high-risk pregnancy zone after 35)? Or do you wait until your 40s when you have had enough success in your career and are fully ready to…

Keep your shaming to yourself

A lot of parents tell me their stories. Sometimes they are stories of a great parenting moment, but most of the time, they are self-ascribed parenting fails.



And I've wondered why so many of us are compelled to share those "bad" stories and make ourselves so vulnerable to others with our moments of…
