The Day Samara Broke My IPhone

*The names of some individuals in this store have been changed to protect their identities. I used to have an IPhone, until today. Samara woke up in a cranky stupor this morning. I quickly gave her a bottle of organic whole milk, hoping that would lift her mood, but she refused it. She sat on [...]

Here’s My Son’s Card

I was on the playground the other day on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, my old neighborhood, and I met this really cool mom. We got to talking while Ari was running amuck and her toddler son was strapped into his stroller. The mom in question had gorgeous long wavy hair that looked too [...]

Older Brother Knows Best- The Little Dietitian

I was trying to feed Samara her scrumptious dinner of Earth's Best Sweet Potato and Chicken baby food, but she decided that she wanted nothing to do with baby food at all.

A Morning in The Life Of

"Ari, are you awake?" "The robot...I wanna watch the robot episode of Max and Ruby." "Are you awake or talking in your asleep?" "Awake. Hungry." "Go to the potty." "No! Hungry first." Ari rolls over on his side. "Use the potty and then you can eat breakfast." "NO! Hungry." Silence. "Carry me." "What?" "Carry me [...]

The Day Two Cats Escaped

Yesterday morning, I was in a sleepy haze, when I heard Wil come in the door from work around 5:00am. "Babe," He said "Uh...there's a cat outside our door. He's really cute." "No..."
