We’re all in this together.

Once we know that. We’re all stars. And we see that. We’re all in this together.  And it shows. When we stand. Hand in hand. And make our dreams come true.

(High School Musical lyrics somehow seem more profound in a childish hand. Am not sure why, but there it is. WE’RE ALL STARS.)

The Rise Of Moms, And The Rise Of Dads, And How The Twain Shall Meet

May 24, 2012

I’m not going to address the latest dad blogging controversy (You guys! You have a controversy! You’ve arrived! AGAIN!), mostly because it’s a debate over trolling, and I am just so, so tired of talking about how mean we can all be to each other online. I’m tired of even thinking about how mean we [...]

They Say It’s Your Birthday, And That You Want A Kitten

May 21, 2012

It’s my birthday today. My husband has been asking me for days what I want. I don’t know what I want. A day off, maybe. A day off, with a nap. Which is totally not going to happen, not today, anyway. By some accident of fate, I’ll be spending part of my birthday this year [...]

He Can Be Your Hero, Baby

May 16, 2012

On Being Mom Enough — To Have The Conversation That TIME Started

May 11, 2012

Here’s the thing: I don’t much care one way or another about the photo that appears on the cover of the upcoming issue of TIME. I mean, I have opinions about it – I have opinions about everything – but it doesn’t rile me up in any way. Nor am I provoked by the subject [...]

Silence Can Be Deafening: Behind The Scenes Of The No Mother’s Day Campaign

May 10, 2012

Mother’s Day For Everyone – Or For No-one

May 5, 2012

This Mother’s Day, I’m foregoing Mother’s Day. I’m asking my family to forgo the flowers and the brunch. I’m telling my husband that I don’t need a gift. I’m telling my mother that I adore her and esteem her, but that instead of a card I’ll be making a donation in her name to Every [...]
