I know I am not the only mom who felt the blow from the Governor a little more than I thought I would. Schools closed for the rest of the year. Boom. I suppose I had a tiny glimmer of hope that...
The beginning of March was just a little over a month ago but it seems like an eternity has passed since then and now. Our high school senior was really excited about an upcoming robotics meet in Myrtle Beach on...
To My Precious Daughter, I know times are tough right now and you want to be in school more than anything. A break from classes and school was nice, but you're ready to be back with your teachers and friends. You're...
Passover is one of my favorite holidays and also the one I am most likely to observe haphazardly. Don’t get me wrong - I love a rousing rendition of “Dayenu” and will absolutely eat your gefilte fish if you...
When my third child, Levi, was born, I pretty much knew what to expect during the newborn stage. I was no rookie at this point and was all too familiar with engorgement, sleepless nights, cluster feeding, diaper rashes, cradle...

We hope it never happens, but it's important to know what to do if your child goes missing. For this list, I consulted government websites, nonprofits, police, and parents whose children went missing. These are the steps professionals say to...
I remember when I was pregnant and I found out I was having a boy. I was overjoyed because it was what I wanted. I couldn’t wait to play sports with him and to watch him play sports. But after...
Okay, so I was totally the mom who was NEVER going to allow her kid on YouTube. I mean, you've read about the people who think it's entertaining to sneak in violent and inappropriate images into YouTube videos for...
I remember one of my first aspirations as a child was to become a mom. I have vivid memories of carrying around my favorite baby doll, Baby Emily, so often that her hair fell off. My sweet grandmother (knowing...
