A Letter To The PTA Moms From The Working Mom
I doled out whatever I could to help the self proclaimed selfless institution that is the PTA out in the only way I was able. And it simply wasn’t good enough for you.
The Dangers and Delights of Being a Fringe Friend
The world of social media magnifies who is included and who is left out. Should I encourage my gregarious son to pick a group to belong to?
Mom The Zombie Slayer: A Teaching Moment
We were in the land of the zombies. But really, it was just a Starbucks on the lower east side. It’s not often we venture back into the city since migrating to the suburbs five years ago. But we had tickets. To the theater. Ok, it was Blue Man Group, we’re not that cultured (but I …

Winded, I look up to see I just got tossed by a 12 year old girl with an athletic build on her way to the “free candy” table at my industry conference. Instinctively I think, I wish my kids were here with me. But really, I don’t. For a moment, I think, I really miss …
