Kids + fundraisers: do you mind buying?

2 hours ago -

M. T. asks from Long Beach - Just curious, does it bother you if an acquaintance's child tries to sell you something as part of a fundraiser? I'm not talking about a relative or a friend's child -- more like a neighbor or co-worker's kid. Someone who you don't know very well. I ask because my 4...

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

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

Double the Kids, Quadruple the Guilt

October 17, 2014

I never want this feeling to end – being needed by my baby – the smell of her freshly washed hair, her baby soft skin cuddled next to me, the sound of her whispering, “lay down with me” at bedtime. But time is moving at warp speed, and in another month she will turn three. No longer a baby, but a little girl….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...

October 16, 2014 -

A. A. asks from Brooklyn - Sorry if this was discussed before. Some of you probably heard about this. In Sayreville NJ, seven HS football players were arrested and charged with sexual assault.

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
