We have a routine on Tuesday nights. I go to a spinning class for an hour with my girlfriends and one of their husbands, who shall now forever be known as Chef Spaghetti, makes dinner for our kids and then for us after class. (Yes, I live in Pleasantville.) Will loves it. I love it. Well, okay I … [Read more...]
Adam and Eve OR Lemurs?
I am not a religious person. I'm famous for saying, 'I don't know — God, Jesus, whoever,' because instead of paying close attention in Sunday School, I was thinking about helping to serve the coffee to the adults after the service. I did love going to church with my family, though. I once placed … [Read more...]
I would classify myself as a "What if?" girl. I'm sure a good therapist would have a million reasons on why I constantly ask that question to myself. This isn't a new thing, I've been doing it for years. Now that I recognize I have issues with anxiety, I'm assuming this is the cause. Or is it the … [Read more...]
Maybe There Are Angels?
Will and I are heading on vacation in ten days. We're off to Jamaica (more on that later!) and both of us are bursting with anticipation.

And The Psychic Says….
Once a year, my girls and I get together and visit a psychic. Okay, a numerologist. We road trip it and go out for dinner and share all of her findings. I love the day for the fun of it and just to be with the girls. They are a second home to me. We haven't seen each other in ages. Life gets in … [Read more...]
Kids and Empathy: Teach Your Children Well
The idea of empathy has been on my mind a lot lately, in part because of this clip that made the rounds on social media about a week ago. While on Conan a while back, funnyman Louis C.K. discussed his views on why he doesn't want his kids to have cell phones... [youtube id="5HbYScltf1c"] The … [Read more...]
When He Sleeps
Sometimes at night, before I go to bed, I sit in Will's room and watch him sleep. I wonder what it is that he's dreaming about. I hope that it's Disney World, Daphne, ice cream cones and what dog we're going to eventually get. Simple things. Don't worry kid. I have the big things covered … [Read more...]
