9 hours ago -

M. A. asks from San Francisco - My husband is turning 42 and wants to go to dinner at his favorite steak restaurant with 2 other couples (close friends).

Did I Do Enough?

September 1, 2014

Last night, after gingerly sneaking out of my sleeping son’s room to the familiar sounds of his gentle snores, the quiet creakiness of a house after dark (and my guilt for leaving him while he’s asleep and unable to protest) I retreated to my office to write. I needed the soothing taptaptap of my keyboard. I needed the quiet, and a glass of wine. I needed to figure out why, with all of the amazing fun that Tucker and I have had this summer… I felt so damned sad….More

The Moment I Stopped Caring About My Weight

August 31, 2014

In college I was a svelte 130 pounds. I could wear anything and look like a waif. I could eat buckets of ice cream or live on black coffee and cigarettes, it didn’t matter because my weight was seemingly never more than an ounce over 130 lbs. Life was pretty good….More

For some reason, men can’t seem to find things. Maybe it’s because they’re usually focused on other things; like what’s in their pants… or getting into yours….More


Freedom of opinion and your children

August 28, 2014 -

K. E. asks from Washington Depot - Naturally as parents we tend to raise our children with our own views politically or religiously, but of course as they get older, they will look into these things on their own. So hypothetically how would you feel and react in the following situations? 1.) Your son...

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
