I was up early to meet my Pilates client on the upper east side. I hopped on the 6 train, and just for the record, getting on the subway during the morning rush hour, is like the running of the bulls. You can easily get gorged in the ass if you’re not careful.
I sat down across from a boy who must’ve been 11 or 12-years old. He was reading, The Doomsday Conspiracy by Sidney…

Carol will be posting about a subject soon that drives both of us to a level of insanity that only our children should be able to do. I want to add my two cents before she posts, because if I don't, I'll forget what I wanted to say. Common occurrence now. I will immediately interrupt you while you are talking, if a thought comes to my mind that I need to share. I know it's horribly rude. It's something I've lectured my children on for the past 20 years. Let's just say, age has taken…Continue

I'm not a big fan of the mall—mostly because I tend to have horrible experiences there. I frequently get hoodwinked by enthusiastic salespeople who sell me junk I don't need and never use, and I have had enough dressing room blunders to write an entire book of anecdotes on fitting…Continue

Here's the truth: I had the most perfect children for miles around, when they were children. People would comment on their perfect manners, their perfect behaviour, their perfect clothes (thank you, thank you, I matched everything and I've got the pictures to prove it. Even shoes. Do you know how hard it is to find purple and green tennis shoes for a five year old?? Pretty darn difficult), their perfect responses to other adults, the perfect way they played with other…Continue

Most people have love-hate relationships with their bodies, and I'm no different—although it's not for the reasons one might think. I don't hate the stretch marks that I bear as a result of having my children, and I don't get too upset over the venetian-blind…Continue

By Bonnie and Emma H.
I write this in fear and with a shaking hand. When my mother (yes, daughter?) first asked me to put together this little list, I thought it had to be some kind of a trick. A way to get inside the "enemy's" mind, if you will. Yes, my mom frequently has ulterior motives. I know it sounds a bit over-dramatic but then you don't live with her do you?
I love my mom, (Now she calls me mom. Me thinks she needs…Continue

I recently wandered up to the magazine rack at a local pharmacy in search of something to read. As I stood there scanning for my usual DIY magazines that often…Continue

Being sick is not fun but then I'm preaching to the choir aren't I? No one enjoys coughing, hacking, stuffed noses, restlessness, gloopy eyes and that general feeling of "kill me know and let's have done with it."
Today, while I was sprawled upon my bed, my nose dripping, wadded tissues surrounding me like minnows in the sea, my bedside table filled with nose spray, rolls of toilet paper, over the counter medications, sweating and then freezing, I prayed to anyone who would listen to…Continue
