Orlando is for Families…and Overdraft Fees.

April 9, 2013

Once or twice a year we head down to Florida. It’s an absolute privilege my children get as a byproduct of having in-laws and friends that now reside in the Sunshine State. Last week I did a little venting on the myth that is the “family vacation.” I blame the steroids I was on for […]

Happy Birthday, Papa.

April 5, 2013

I think it makes people uncomfortable, which only goads us on, triple dog daring us into those weird couples who refer to each other as “papa” and “mama” across the room from each other at parties or in line for the complimentary hotel continental breakfast. We have all our important […]

Family Vacation? Liar.

April 2, 2013

I remember when we landed in Cleveland from L.A. We stood in baggage claim hand in hand. He carried my bags for me, and snuggled me close as we ran in the snow to our car. We stopped at a restaurant off the turnpike on the drive home, he ran in to pee and came […]

Bikini Mountain

March 18, 2013

So, when I started do this whole thing where once a year I put on a bathing suit and go in public, I thought, yes. This feels brave. This feels strong. And it was, until one day it wasn’t. It doesn’t necessarily feel less strong or less brave, it just feels… normal. Which is amazing. […]

The Tiny Fashionista

March 8, 2013

Having a girl has been a really, really awesome head trip. After two boys, I totally wanted a girl, but I had no idea what I was getting. I mean, it’s way better than I expected, but sometimes Andy and I look at each other all… Where did she come from? How does she know […]
