If you follow my blog with any regularity, you know that I’ve been thinking a lot about the Church Health Center’s values this year. As the Center prepares for a move to Crosstown Concourse, we’ve also been assessing the institutional principles that motivate everything we do. I’ve enjoyed musing on…

Tina Fey high five

When I was in my twenties, I talked a lot about how I didn’t regret any of my past mistakes. Believing that it made me neat and unique to own up to my quirky foibles, I often waxed poetic about how, if given the chance to go back and do things over, I simply would not. I […]

ghostbusters new

Let me tell you a little story about the Ghostbusters and me. When I was seven years old, my Aunt Jaye took me to see Ghostbusters II in the theater. Before the movie, we went to a fancy restaurant for dinner and ate hamburgers and fries and talked about all the kinds of things seven-year-old […]

chores of the childless

I have heard it said before that having a baby changes everything. I knew this was true when I found myself incredibly grateful to be able to sleep in until 7 a.m. on a Saturday morning. Pre-parent me would have died a little inside if someone had told her that there would come a day […]

I do a better job of caring for my actual child than the preschool craft version of her.

I want to remember who we were today. Today was a Wednesday at the beginning of June, 2015. C had a week off from PDO last week, and today she returned to school. It was her first day of the summer session and she transitioned from the two-year-old classroom to the three-year-old preschool classroom, aptly titled “Monkey […]

Eating the Elephant

For a long time now, I’ve likened writing to therapy. It’s a cheap way to get my thoughts in a row, to temper the negativity of my life with the positivity. Through writing, I’ve learned new things about myself that I otherwise might not have ever uncovered. I’ve analyzed problems and worked through complicated, conflicted emotions. Writing […]

12 Ways to Say Thanks

So, the other day I was trying to explain to C the significance of Mother’s Day since this is the first year she’s actually kind of aware of this, the High Holy Day of maternal sacrifice. I told her that it’s a day when we think about how much we love our moms and thank […]

Madeline by Ludwig Behelmans

I pride myself in providing my kid with quality reading material. Whether or not she actually wants to consume it is an arbitrary issue. To be honest, C would much rather play cowboys at bedtime these days than she would read a book. I think she’s onto us; she knows that stories make her drowsy and […]

Smile! Dads Get Judged, Too!

One of the super fun things about motherhood is the way everyone has a better idea of how to raise your child than you do. Whether you’re being lambasted on Facebook by Judgerson McGillicuddie when you post a picture of your 11-month-old eating bananas and OH MY GAWD HIDE THE CHILDREN peanut butter, or you’re being scolded by a senile hairdresser […]
