April is Stress Awareness Month. I don't know about you, but I am pretty aware of my stress! I have a toddler who has just begun to discover she can topple furniture on herself and play with the stove dials, I've...
“Mommy and Daddy go to the gym to get healthy and strong so they can play with me!” It’s not uncommon to hear our daughter utter this statement in our house, multiple times a week. My husband and I are...
I like to call myself a Boston lifer, but that's not really true. We actually just moved back to Boston after spending 12 years in New York City. And it's been an adjustment, to say the least.  But we've...

My daughter Nina was barely a month old the first and only time she and my maternal grandmother met. My "Nannie" had cancer and her mind was not as sharp as it had once been. Yet as we sat on...
Kidding about the 207. Well, sort of. As many parents of young kids know getting a picky eater, never mind a picky toddler, to eat somewhat healthy can be a bit of a challenge. Case in point-my 18-month old daughter,...
We've all had that friend.  You know the one.  The one who just can't handle a few cocktails.  The one who gets silly and sloppy after 2 dirty martinis.  Yup, that friend.  Heck, we've all been that friend (I...
