ShareOver the past month, my son has started saying a few select words. When he started this process, I had high hopes. “Mama” couldn’t be too far off, right? Not so much. Until very recently, my darling boy said one word and one word only. He used it correctly every time, and he used it about […]

ShareAs most of you have probably figured out by now, I had my baby. A month early, in the dark of a February night. At the risk of sounding like a complete cliché, it has been the most incredible experience of my life. I don’t imagine anything will ever eclipse the combined joy of giving […]

ShareI am headed to the east end of Long Island for one last summer trip.  I have spent a decade of summers in Westhampton Beach, the first town in the Hamptons (and so un-Hampton-y that they actually don’t even list it on the map in most Hamptons publications). This year, hubby and I decided we’d […]

ShareI’ve just returned from a week in Rockport, Massachusetts, a little town on the edge of Cape Ann, about 45 minutes north of Boston. I’ve written about Rockport before, on several occasions. And for good reason. I’ve spent every summer of my life in Rockport, in a house on a hill that was first purchased […]

ShareI actually started to well up a bit as I typed out the title of this post.  I know some recent admissions of mine may make it seem as though I’m in a constant struggle.  And I fear some of my more fertility based rants may have been misconstrued, or perhaps poorly communicated. There are […]

ShareI always loved Halloween as a kid.  It was the highlight of the fall.  And I don’t even like candy. I had the kind of mom who’d make my costumes herself.  There were never any store bought mermaid or Miss America costume-in-a-bag outfits in our house. I think the best costume I ever had was […]

ShareYesterday I had a procedure at the hospital that was perhaps the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced. But don’t worry, I lived to tell the tale. I know you can’t wait to hear it. I went in for something called a hysterogram, more commonly known as an HSG.  The doctor uses a catheter, contrast, […]

ShareThis morning started out like any other morning. Several “snooze” sessions, my best Oscar the Grouch impersonation, and a large cup of coffee. Until I looked out the window. After several days of much needed, heavy rain, the skies over Long Island dawned clear, cool, and heart-breakingly blue. The perfect day to be out in […]

ShareIt must be a slow news week.  All anyone can talk about is LeBron James (am I the only person on the planet who could give a rats you-know-what where that guy ends up?). Well, LeBron and the heat wave, that is. Here in the Northeast, temps have soared over the 100 degree mark more […]

ShareLast night I went to a very special event here in the Big Apple.  It was the annual alumnae cocktail reception for my K-12, all girls, home away from home school.  Every year the headmistress and the ladies from alumnae relations and development make the trek up to NYC to check in on the alum’s […]
