Reading time before bed is a joke

5 hours ago -

J. O. asks from Novi - Are all the kids out there reading and loving it, like I imagine? My kids don't read. They hate to read. It's like a punishment. So Instead of going to bed (ages 3 to 8) I started special reading time! They can stay up if reading or looking at a book, for 15 minutes....

What I Learned When I Fell in the Pool in Front of the Thigh Gap Crew

July 21, 2014

I’ve already made peace with the extra ten pounds I possess and the fact that they afford me the ability to eat cake, so the proliferation of moms with thigh gap on the pool deck is totally not affecting my self-esteem, I swear. Normally the kids and I have the pool to ourselves, so I really have no freaking clue where they all came from, but like I said, it’s totally not bothering me at all.

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
