I can understand the appeal of a children’s menu. Parents get to eat what they want, and kids get a low priced choice of things they want – mac & cheese, plain pasta, chicken fingers. Everyone is happy. Except not.... Continue reading

My father had a fatal heart attack when I was 15, and my siblings and I have always tried to be fit and active, to counteract our family history. His four brothers and both parents all died young of heart... Continue reading

wonderful post. I hope you get to Paris soon, tho (and blog about it. before kids, an adult once told me he didn't have to go to europe since he's been to epcot- I love your take on this.

well, yes, I think I'm cleaner than a cow, and it's fine for me to have fed my breast milk to my children. but to other people?

I have had this same experience at my daughters' high school. I can't believe how genuinely nice the kids are. And when I went to a high school soccer game, almost every girl had a parent there - mine never once saw me - or my teammates - play.

I could weigh in with many stories of my kids projectile vomiting, but I have a sweet story. On Christmas, a family with newborn twins was on our flight. One fell asleep; the other was screaming inconsolably. A flight attendant 'deadheading' took the baby from the sobbing mom, but the baby was still screaming. The baby finally calmed down when the sole flight attendant took her in her arms. So the woman who was not working actually served the drinks, cleaned the plane, chatted with my old enough to fly without screaming kids. It was so sweet. The beleaguered mom was congratulated by everyone on the plane and the non-working flight attendant and the one who calmed the baby were thanked profusely by everyone. Maybe because it was Christmas, but sometimes people truly do pull together.

My middle daughter, 19 months younger than her older sister, completely trained herself at 14 months. It was a bit freaky. but if she is willing, and you can invest a little time, capitalize on her interest - it's good for the environment and your wallet!

no, perfectly reasonable. they do get excellent training in travel soccer - but there's the additional burden -if your kid is good enough to make the team, but not to play much, you travel to watch him sit on the bench. or pay extra for private training sessions - it's a whole can of worms.

my 3 kids play soccer, and let me tell you, it is a time suck as well. If you display any talent, you wind up in travel soccer, which involves 2-3 practices a week, games in NJ, Westchester or Long Island, games that go in to double overtime or penalty kicks (making the 90 minute game more like 2 hours). oh, and I think it rained at every game this season. but yes, they do exercise quite a bit.

Very funny. Don't forget, a good Jewish primal scream rant can burn off, oh, about 300 calories. In other words, a King-sized Snickers bar. Get back to the city soon!

one year, we had a gymnastics party and instead of the usual bag of crap, gave out hula hoops (no monetary savings, but a useful item). one guest said she liked the hula hoop, but still wanted a bag filled with goodies. can't please everyone.

like, I know what you, you know, like mean, but in my family? It's like, I don't know? We have this like thing? and I like, know, my daughter use it with teachers? In sentences that always sound like questions? Hey, I used "like' correctly that time!

Right back atcha - I loved your subway "the customer is always wrong' post. I find that inexpensive restaurants often don't care about customer service - though on Mother's Day, at a rather pricey, nice restaurant, we waited 90 minutes for our food and the excuse was, 'well, it's Mother's Day. Hmm. Won't be returning anytime soon.
