My son’s school has so much going for it – a great Dual Language Spanish Immersion Program, it’s a 2 block walk from my house, and did I mention it’s free? There’s only one problem: one of the teachers is... Continue reading

So sorry about the school closure -- it's a disruptive thing, no doubt. And good luck with the move!

The communism scare is hilarious to me, but the growing bilingual learning in this country is really exciting. My kids are in a Spanish immersion program at their elementary school (here in LA) and I hope they'll take a third language when they're in high school. I worked in China on a movie years ago and I had a glimpse of how complex the Mandarin language is, so I am in awe of these kids learning it as their second languages. Very impressive! Thanks for the post!

Deep breaths, moms! And then get out the nail gun for the doors. I'm with you: terror!

What an awful situation, Eunice! So sorry that happened to you! I am constantly shocked at the childish behavior parents display.

Oh, it's hard!! Keep up the patient repetition of the polite-isms. And it takes a while. But it's worth it. Polite society depends on it. (That's my mantra!)

Aww, thanks, Laura! And thanks for weighing in. Parenting is not for the faint of heart, right?

I often wonder, like my friend Jessica, whether I am a good enough mom, and often I find myself lacking. I wish I could start over a couple times a day – giving my kids more love from the start,... Continue reading

Laura, we JUST NOW got hooked on Lost -- from the beginning. We started watching episodes from the first season on dvd and are now 3 episodes into Season 3. My whole family's into it -- so please don't tell me what happens!! I can't believe I'm just getting into it when the series is ending! Thank goodness for dvds and Hulu.

You deserve a month at a spa after a silent auction -- and I hope you at least get some relaxation afterwards!

No -- let's change the world -- at least, the volunteering world! If everyone did a small amount, it would all get done and be wonderful. Let's do that!

You are so smart to have set your boundaries. Sounds like you may have done it before you got burned out!
