FRIEND OR FOE? BECOMING A MOM WILL TELL

Becoming a parent is an extremely insightful experience. Beyond teaching you about yourself and your partner, it teaches you a lot about those around you. Relationships you've had for years that have been a large part of who you are can be tested once your life includes a whole new being, one who means more... Continue Reading →

HOW BECOMING A MOTHER TRAUMATIZED ME

It's true. I admit it. Every time the Huggies "power of hugs" commercial hits the screen I cover my face with my knees so my husband doesn't see me 😭. It’s not that I’m ashamed about displaying emotion, rather I'm afraid he might ask me why I'm crying and the question would force me to face the... Continue Reading →

SO WHEN’S THE NEXT ONE COMING?

It's a question most first time or, one time mothers will get. As soon as your first born starts to talk people begin asking when you'll push out another one. To be honest, the question doesn't really bother me. I'm not a stickler for privacy, especially since I myself haven't fully grasped the concept of barriers... Continue Reading →

THE DEMOCRATIZATION OF CREATION

I'm not talking "family friendly" rotisserie chicken or burger joints but... Continue Reading →

ODE TO MOTHERING A TODDLER

When life gives you a whiny toddler, put on an episode of Girls and reach for that pint of Häagen-Dazs cookie dough ice cream. For one woman's muffin top is another woman's washboard abs. Try not to be fooled by fellow mommy Pinterest accounts, all toddlers are gremlins that tantrum when they can't eat marshmallows... Continue Reading →

WOE IS ME

So here’s an interesting anecdote. Last night after my husband cooked me a mouth-watering plate of pasta vongole accompanied by a delicious Chianti, instead of showering him with compliments and affection I felt annoyed because he ended the evening by breaking a new crystal glass of wine. Oh yes. No joke. My dysfunctional mind chose... Continue Reading →

LOOKS LIKE EMPATHY CAN BE TAUGHT

On Friday November 4th my mother went to the Jewish General Hospital for a procedure meant to fix an unsuccessful bypass she had undergone six months ago. It's been virtually a year that she's been dealing with symptoms related to blockages in her arteries and while we thought that the worst was behind us, that she could... Continue Reading →
