Dear Son: Farts Aren't for Sharing

The other day my four-year-old farted on me as a defense mechanism while I was tickling him, like a squid inking a predator or a skunk dropping a stink bomb when he’s afraid. He thought it was the funniest thing he’d ever done and then decided to repeat the hilarity until his eyes watered with the effort of squeezing out the last molecules of gas from his small body. He laughed, and I composed this letter in my head….More

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.
