I wondered if I was ready to jump back into it. Would my training and skills have diminished, or is it like riding a bike? Would my sleep-deprived mommy brain be able to remember all my lines and blocking on top of the zillion other things I juggle in my everyday life? Without knowing the answers, I said yes.
We are nearing the end of Autism Awareness Month, but we're not quite at the end of this difficult period of isolation. It has been a very challenging time in my home, and I am sure almost everyone else...
All of the sudden I woke up the other day and I was the mother of a 2-year-old.  I know that literally everyone who already has kids says, "It goes by so fast!" when you first have a baby, but...
During a decade of train, subway, and bus commutes, I saw enough to know that riding the T while pregnant might not be the best of experiences.
See, things have changed a lot. Parents of young kids these days can be distracted — myself included. We have a lot going on, and technology and social media have created an additional burden on us despite all the ways they have made life easier. In part because of all the information we have available, we are constantly judging ourselves. Moms in particular struggle with comparing themselves and their parenting abilities to those of everyone they follow on Instagram or are friends with on Facebook.
Really, Time Magazine? That’s all you’ve got for us? With all the real news happening daily? And Mattel, what’s going on — revenue down? Last week we learned that Barbie would be given a more "realistic" body — three new...
I see you at my daughter’s ballet class. You are just as put together as always, not a hair out of place. I know you have a new baby and a toddler, but you somehow look flawless and rested....
I began to consider redshirting my son — having him enter kindergarten a year after he was “allowed.” But he was so ready to go that I sent him.
Sometimes, as parents, we need to choose to go with love — or fear. We all try to go with love, because we have so much of it. Then we turn on the news or the radio, we check our...
I was born, raised, and went to college in Texas. Since then, I've lived in San Francisco, London, Geneva, and now Boston, and as much as I've loved the unique experience of each of these places, the longer I'm away...
Recently, I was asked to speak on a panel about going back to work after having a baby. Having done this twice, I am definitely no expert, but I can speak about what worked for me. Here are nine things I've learned (or wish I'd known) based on a predictable weekday schedule.
Put a tomato plant in the ground and walk away, and in the right conditions it will likely survive. But we all know that surviving and thriving are not the same thing — and my son knows that too, even at his young age. He trims browning branches, uses Velcro to attach heavy stalks to a wire frame, and replaces the chicken wire assembled to (unsuccessfully) keep rabbits out of the broccoli. He waters, he trims, and he rearranges. Every plant requires work and needs something different to grow. And the rewards far outweigh the effort invested. This is easy to say in life but harder to remember.
