Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt #streamteam

  I’m obsessed with the show “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” I attended the advance screening and brought Phil as my date. Phil doesn’t like anything. If he says, “It was okay,” it means he wants to spread his seed and make illegit babies with it. After watching the first two episodes of Tina Fey’s newest show, […]

Comments Off on ever after high


Netflix sent me a box of #StreamTeam goodies to throw an Ever After High viewing party this month, and it has been on my to-do list all month. It didn’t happen, but here’s what did: Abigail opened the box, and Lucas made a verb out of it. “It’s an unboxing, Mama.” Yup, that’s one too […]

attention seekers

I just had a mini-moment. I won’t call it an epiphany because I don’t know that I’ll remember the moment years from now, with remarkable accuracy—as you’re able to do with true epiphanies—able to tell you what I was wearing (Phil’s cableknit cashmere sweater, waffle weave sweatpants, horn-rimmed glasses), or if I was on my […]

car conversations

February 24, 2015


One of the reasons I opted for a car without a DVD player or TV screens on the headrests is because I value our car conversations, the ones we wouldn’t have if my beans were being carted off to karate lessons after school, wearing headphones, engrossed in a movie on demand. Conversations like this one, […]

you're not the boss of me

Lucas, you say it often. “You’re not the boss of me.” I don’t think it’s something you’ve practiced saying at school, something you’ve learned to say to other children on the playground, and I don’t think they’re words of defiance. You’re not a brat. Maybe what the deepest part of you is saying is, “I […]

light and dark christmas

December 29, 2014


Black and white cookies were the only acceptable cookies to be left for Santa Claus this year, if for no other reason than a not so subliminal hint that Lucas was hoping beyond hope that St. Nicholas might grant his one and only Christmas wish: Equality for one and all. Well, nearly. The Skylander Light […]

proud gifting sweetness

December 9, 2014


Last night Abigail asked if she could have money for the school holiday boutique. It’s a fair of crap, plastic rings and enormous pencils, gifts for everyone on your list. Every year we give them money and names, but this year, we rolled our eyes and said, “Please, no.” Abigail cried. I got down to […]

asking for what you want

asking for what you want

I‘ve been missing in action this summer, unplugged, offline, away from my computer and iPhone, fully enjoying my life. Actually, that’s not entirely true. The truth is, that I started another blog, a private one, password protected… for moms of Girl Scout Brownie girls. That’s right, it’s a site for Abigail’s Girl Scout troop. See, […]
