The day started off innocently. There’s a mess of dishes and many wine bottles after I hosted book club the night before, but I cleared most of it out of the way while I assembled my breakfast. There’s Beavers that night, after we both go to work. There’s a kid with red eyes, but it doesn’t look [...]
A few things – and some of them are more fun than the others. Last week the kids and I participated in a new game on the Teletoon Retro website called Toon Feud. You can log in via your Facebook account and answer questions about cartoons from the good old days, or in our case, about a [...]

I’m going to be that person who references a book without having read it. That’s a terrible kind of person to be. And yet here I am, being it. But I keep hearing about Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg, and I’ve read synopses and reviews and watched her on YouTube, [...]
I was looking back at my old iPhoto files on the Mac, and I came across this gem. This would have been taken in November 2007, a time I can barely remember because I was SO very OVERwhelmed. I had a newborn and, oh yeah, another baby. Not even 2 years old yet. Talk about [...]
I see the excitement of my friends as they exclaim !March Break! around this time every year, presumably over the joy that comes in not packing school lunches and not yelling at anyone who is putting on their snowsuit a little too slowly, for a few days, anyway. Me, I feel a sense of dread [...]
I had one of those days where I really felt like I was having it all. Like I am super woman, hear me roar. Except with less roaring and more juggling, and spinning plates. I was awoken early by a feverish baby, but he was a good alarm clock, since it was Parks and Rec [...]
A friend was just checking in to say hi, and asking what was new. And really, I have nothing much to say. The past month has flown by ridiculously fast, and all the days seem to sort of meld into one. I mean, most weekdays are exactly the same. Wake up Shower Get dressed Grab [...]
We’re having one of those rare weekends where I actually feel like we’ve gotten a lot accomplished around the house, I’ve managed to get some time to myself to see friends and go to yoga, and the kids seem mostly entertained. And the best part is, there’s still another day of it left. Hurrah for [...]

I used to be crafty. Somewhere I still have craft paint and nice hole punches, and one time in New York City I made crafts with Martha Stewart Omnimedia staff and my friend Emma and it was awesome. But I am no longer crafty. The thought of giving my children scissors and glue causes a panic attack. [...]
“You know that people are going to be wondering what happened when they see you when we go out, right? You could tell people that you got attacked by ninjas,” I helpfully suggested. “Or a giant turtle got you,” laughed Callum. “Yeah. But old ladies don’t like it when you tell stories,” replied Oliver. Hmm, I [...]
