Dr. Mommy’s Magic Butt Paste

Every once in a while, being a pediatrician mom comes in handy. I’m not talking about those times when the other mothers are worried about the sugar content of infant formula, and you’re like puleeze, forget sugar! I’m more worried about neuroblastoma, histiocytosis X, and rheumatoid arthritis! My pediatric background ratchets up the worry meter […]


Little Girl’s Baptism

I know that you all have wondered whether I dropped off the face of the earth last week. “What happened with the baptism,” friends queried via e-mail. Yet I was waiting to post…waiting until the magnificent Sarah Bloom finished working on the pictures she took for me of the ceremony and reception. And when you […]

So I Went To Order A Cake…

I know that there is some etiquette written for this situation somewhere, but tonight I was just lost. I went to the bakery to order a sheet cake for the reception after Zizi’s baptism. No one was on duty. You were supposed to fill out the cake order form with all the details and leave […]

The Saddest Passport Photo Ever

Today I took Ms. Zizi to Sears to have her passport picture taken. Though she was singing and playing in the stroller on the way to the portrait studio, somehow after she arrived and had to sit like a big girl on the stool and face the camera, she became quite unhappy. Look at this […]


Tell Me About Yourself

I don’t know how many of you are regular readers of Salon, but last week there was a letter to Cary Tennis in his Since You Asked column that really caught my attention. I get grossed out when I hear, “I’m a mom!” I’m about to be a mom, actually, but I don’t want to […]


Wedged In The Car Seat

That would be Zara. OK, I overstate. She can move her arms. She can kick her legs. There is just not that much room between the side of the seat and her body. She also gets royally pissed whenever I place her into the seat. I know that I mentioned it a little while ago, […]
