Recommendations for Water Filter

1 hour ago -

C. S. asks from Irvine - My family drinks through bottled water like crazy and even though we recycle, it seems so wasteful to go through all those bottles. Plus, I'm not too crazy about the plastic the water's sitting in. I've started looking at those water filters that you snap onto your fauc...

Spending Date Night Lamenting Your Youth

October 19, 2014

I’m in a flurry. I’ve put on Madeline for my three year old while I sit at my vanity so that I can apply eye shadow and lipstick. I give myself an asthma attack spraying on drugstore perfume that I’ve purchased because it claims to be French. I’ve just returned from a mad dash to Walgreens in which I’ve also picked up some sort of “blurring” cream that is supposed to erase 20 years of hard living and make me ready for photos (the paparazzi forever plagues me) because oh my god, I have a date tonight!More

Oh My Gourd! The Things We Do for Our Kids

October 20, 2014

At the end of kindergarten last year, my oldest daughter Anna (known around here as Anna Banana, or "AB") brought home a biology project: a little plastic cup half-full of dirt with a few tiny leaves poking through. She told me she had planted a pumpkin seed and – to my shock and dismay – the damn thing had actually started to show signs of life. I dismissively told her we could plant it in our garden, fully expecting it to die. When planting day finally arrived, AB lovingly transferred her little seedling to the far corner of the garden where it wouldn’t interfere with the real vegetables….More

Your Daughter Might Be a Mean Girl If...

October 18, 2014

While talking to a friend the other night, she told me a heart-wrenching story about how a group of 7th grade girls got up from a lunch table and moved when her daughter sat down. They certainly had a good reason to do it… after all, an 8th grade hottie asked her daughter to the dance and (gasp) she said yes….More

October 16, 2014 -

J. H. asks from Westfield - My son wants to be a Minecraft skeleton for Halloween. It's not one of the Minecraft costumes you can actually buy (like Steve, Creeper, Enderman) but it's easy enough - a box for the head, and I saw a fantastic picture online where the body was black sweats with duct tap...

HS sexual assaults, Sayreville football season cancelled?

How to Get The Picture-Perfect Family Holiday Photo

New York:
December 12, 2010

Sitting in Central Park this weekend, I watched as a professional photographer brought her clients to a picture-perfect hideaway for the classic holiday card photo shoot. The little munchkins and their parents, all dressed up in holiday-wear, were positioned in just the right way and instructed to say “cheese” for the camera. Let’s face it. This photo is important. It represents an entire year of existence and growth for the family, as it is mailed out to close friends and family….More
