It Doesn't Take a Genius.

So I’ve recently been alerted to the hullabaloo surrounding Baby Einstein videos. It seems that Disney is offering refunds on their “educational” videos because they’re apparently not turning infants into baby Einsteins after-all. I was absolutely shocked to find out that I wasn’t the only person duped into thinking I could raise a teeny tiny Mozart through no hands-on parenting of my own. more

The Big Birthday Countdown.

Elby will be five on November 12th, which in case you weren’t aware is “only a few weeks away and a week is seven days – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday – that’s a week!” more

The First Cut is the Deepest.

My friend David is a perfectionist but he’s working on it. I first met him a little more than fifteen years ago at a comedy club in Los Angeles and I found him to be a hilarious, anxious mess so naturally I took to him immediately. more

Facebook Saved My Marriage.

Marriage is hard work. It so easy for me to drift apart for periods of time from Jon while dealing with the trials and tribulations of navigating the early intervention system for our twins, navigating the public school system for Elby and attempting to ensure our house doesn’t smell like cat pee more

How One Became Three.

Sometimes (all the time) when I look at my life I can’t believe I have three kids. When I run from room to room prying dried Play-Doh from the coffee table, removing colored chalk from little mouths and cleaning poop off of the carpet (you read that right and those so-called miracle carpet cleaners? Not so much) it seems unfathomable that I did this on purpose more

The 'Burbs.

Last week I ran into one of my neighbors I barely know at the local Trader Joe’s. She didn’t recognize me so I introduced myself. “Oh yeah, I think I remember you. Weren’t you supposed to get the fire truck for the block party a few years back?” more

A Look Back.

I was checking my blog, investigating my old habits, trying to pinpoint where it all went a little off the tracks and I found this entry which kind of made me laugh but also made me think a little bit. more

Family Matters.

When people hear that I have twins one of the first questions I'm usually asked is, "Do you have family around to help you?" The answer to that question is like one of the options for relationship status on Facebook: It's complicated. more

Thank You Rachael Brownell.

On May 22nd I made the humbling and, hopefully, permanent decision to give up the hooch. Up until fairly recently, I really liked to drink. Scratch that – loved to drink. My favorite sound? The cork popping out of a bottle of chilled pinot grigio signaling my day coming to a close. more

Nothing Personal.

I’m headed to BlogHer this year and I’m a bit terrified. I wouldn’t consider myself a shy person, in fact, I most likely have the opposite problem; in a room full of people I can make conversation with a wall – which can lead to some weird looks. more
