If you’ve always liked the idea of rubber ducks for your kids but don’t like the idea of more plastic crap in your bathtub, here’s a solution.Read More

I’ve always liked conversation-piece jewelry. My feeling is you can get a lot more mileage out of one really striking piece than decking yourself out with hundreds of dollars worth of average stuff. So I’m already figuring out excuses to buy myself some of the inspired baubles from JacQueline Sanchez.Read More
Check my daughter’s wall shelves and you will find her books stacked in impractically haphazard piles. Why? If they tilt even 5 degrees in their upright positions, they knock the bookends over. Um, can you say design flaw?Read More
I am guilty of committing gross cruelty to sunglasses. I stick them on my head when they’re not in use, I dump them in my bag without a case, I leave them on the coffee table where my daughter can paw at them with sticky hands.Read More
I’m a journal whore. I cannot have enough blank books in every room of my house, just waiting for me to jot down inspired nuggets of brilliance, poetic stanzas, novel starters, effervescent bon mots. Or a shopping list that identifies that that I’m out of Pledge.Read More
Yes, I do plan to eat that. And that. And THAT. I’m pregnant and hungry, and I’m also grumpy enough to sit on you if you get between me and my food.

Like many dutiful first time mothers, I took pictures of my growing belly (and unfortunately, thighs and butt) every month until I had my daughter. But what exactly are you supposed to do with those photos? And don’t say "screen saver."Read More
Baby announcements aren’t really intended to announce the baby, nor are they a solicitation of gifts. Let’s be honest, baby announcements are meant solely to knock the socks off your friends and family.Read More
The trouble with baby art is that it’s generally not for the baby. Sorry kiddos, we love you, but you have hopelessly pathetic eyesight. Those sweet pastels? More for us than for you.Read More
I’m proud to say I speak Spanish. I’m not fluent or anything, but I can handle basic conversations. OK, OK, I’ll admit it: All the Spanish I know I learned from episodes of Sesame Street. But I can count to veinte quite convincingly and order a Corona.Read More
