Do You Love Fall Like I Love Fall?

Do You Love Fall Like I Love Fall?

October 6, 2011 | Comments (4)

It happens every year in October.  It is as predictable as rain.  I can almost set my watch by it. I get nostalgic.  Not that blue, deep-sigh kind of nostalgic. More of the sweet-bliss kind of nostalgic.  If you love Fall like I love Fall, then, chances are, you know exactly what I am talking […]

My Royal Hero

My Royal Hero

September 15, 2011 | Comments (0)

Normally I’m not much of a royal watcher.  I read the occasional story about England’s royal family with the same interest I read about the weather.  I didn’t get up early to watch the recent wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, although I did watch the news clips.  Recently, though, I became a big […]

Baby's 2nd Haircut

Baby’s 2nd Haircut

June 17, 2011 | Comments (1)

My baby girl, Chiara, had her first haircut ever at a manly man’s barber shop. She was all smiles for that first haircut – perhaps because she was busy watching her big brother get his haircut at the very same time. A couple months later, for her second haircut, I brought her to a fancier salon. But […]

Blinded by Summer Skin Exposure

May 9, 2011 | Comments (0)

I’m a big fan of summer.  I’m the kind of person who fights to keep the air conditioner off.  I like the heat and sunshine.  Still, I have a big summer problem. While others are anxioius to pull off the winter pants and throw on some shorts, I dread it.  You see, my skin is a […]

Parents, don't dress your girls like tramps

Parents, don’t dress your girls like tramps

If I could stand on a mountaintop and force people to listen to me, I’d read this CNN column over and over and over again.  I read it until parents understand that girls shouldn’t look like hookers and boys shouldn’t be raised to think girls should look like hookers.  I’d print this article and send it […]

When Breathing Might Be Best

When Breathing Might Be Best

April 14, 2011 | Comments (3)

I love bunnies. At this late point in my life, I have either forgotten or misplaced in my brain, why the Easter Bunny has its place during our Easter Celebrations. I recall that they are cute, a representation of life’s renewal process, fresh starts, and, well, bunnies hop – maybe somehow relating to how we […]

A Grey Giveaway

November 18, 2010 | Comments (1)

A few years ago, another mom at our girls’ preschool thought I was their grandmother.  It was a humbling moment to be sure.  When I called my husband to tell him I said, “Well, this guarantees that I won’t go grey for a long time.” It’s one of the downfalls of being an  — ahem […]

My daughter got a tattoo. I should hate it. I hate tattoos. But not this one.

Chilaxin’ at King Spa and Sauna

Eight years ago – and it was October too, come to think of it –  I separated from my brand new baby daughter for the first time. I left the house for two hours to catch some much needed me-time. My destination? Thousand Waves on Belmont for a sauna and a soak. I’m a big […]

So Many Milestones, So Little Guidance

September 22, 2010 | Comments (10)

When your child is a baby, your pediatrician, your mom, your friends and all the books will tell you at what age your baby should sit up, wave, try rice cereal, crawl, say Mama and Dada and walk. But what about when your child gets older? How do you know at what age he or she should […]
