The Comeback Kid

By |2013-10-24T09:45:58-04:00October 24th, 2013|Parenting|

I went off to college wanting to be an elementary school teacher. That goal was lost somewhere along the line, but I had a very 1950's daydream about me in cardigan sweater sets talking about conjugating verbs. After college, I spent my summers working at an all-girls summer camp, and my first week on the [...]

The Call of the Commune

I think one of the scariest parts of my marriage, for Andy, is the knowledge that I am always four seconds from being ready and willing to move to a commune. I blame my parents. There are entire photo albums of me laying on patchwork quilts on the grass next to five or six other [...]

School’s Out. ALREADY!?

By |2013-05-17T10:41:41-04:00May 17th, 2013|Parenting|

This morning I got up and looked at the school calendar, as I am wont to do two hours before the start of school, and I exhaled a sigh of relief that I didn't have to come up with snack for twenty kids. Last month I sent Wyatt to class with a bag full of [...]

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 [...]

Pink Eye

Last Wednesday, the school popped up on my caller ID. Now, that single occurrence used to send me dashing to the phone, freaked out and scared to death at the news on the other end. But then, I quickly realized the main reason I happen to get calls from the school is for things like, [...]
