Okay, I’m going out on a limb here.
I’m a middle-aged mom and I love Facebook. And no, I’m not playing games like FarmVille, Kingdoms of Camelot or Mafia Wars. I love it for networking. So when “Saturday Night Live” recently aired a fake ad/… Read full post »
It's the question I dread most. You know. The get-acquainted conversational gambit: "What do you do?"
"I'm a writer," I mumble, and try to change the topic.
Too late. I've learned from sad experience what people always say next. And what I'd like (but don't dare… Read full post »
She was meant to be a companion for our cat Dizzy. She looked identical. The same kohl-rimmed eyes. The same silky, silver fur. The same sweet face. She was Dizzy’s Doppelganger.
A heart of darkness.
Last week I was privileged to attend a luncheon at Ladies Home Journalin honor of the Golden Hat Foundation, founded by actress Kate Winslet, who appears on the cover of the current issue of the magazine.

Maybe it starts when you realize rock concerts give you a headache. Or that you're offering to cut up other people's food. Or that you catch yourself ending a discussion with, "Because I'm the mother, that's why." You've reached a new level of
The blogosphere has been buzzing in outrage recently over controversial author James Frey's newest publishing venture, Full Fathom Five, a fiction factory that pays a stable of young writers just $250 for commercially viable young-adult novels, and offers them an exploitative, nonnegoti… Read full post »

The first thing we decided when we found out I was pregnant was to wait until the third month before we told anyone.
Ten minutes later, I was combing through my address book, calling everyone from our realtor to my sixth grade teacher.… Read full post »
“We’re trying new medication for Jake,” my friend Lauren tells me. Her son, like mine, has autism and seizures.
“We saw bad side effects on that one,” I warn.
“I know. The doctor told me Jake might even have hallucinations. So I s… Read full post »
"Your child has autism."
It's a devastating diagnosis for a parent to hear. But it's a one-two punch when your insurance company then refuses to cover the critical, medically necessary therapies your child desperately needs.
When our then-2-year-old son was diagnosed with a developmental disa… Read full post »
1. Take your kids.
2. (Okay, forget number one.)
3. Rent a vacation house from people who don't have kids and don't like kids. Rent a house from people who are fond of model ships in bottles, glass sculptures, and white, wall-to-wall carpeting.
4. Pull your kid out… Read full post »

I have an embarrassing confession.
Last week I was invited to a Tupperware Party. That's not the embarrassing part.
The embarrassing part is that I went.
It was an

On April 2, we will celebrate the third annual World Autism Awareness Day. But there is a war raging within the autism community.
Parents are still pitted against each other over the vaccine issue, despite the fact that numerous well designed scientific studies have failed to show any c… Read full post »
“If you could be anything in the world and talent and money weren’t an issue, would you still be doing what you do, or something else?"
My husband posed this question in an attempt to liven up a rather staid Upper East Side party one night. The gathered Wall Street… Read full post »
I am a perfume slut.
I can’t be faithful to just one fragrance. I have serial love affairs; no signature scent for me. This morning, I own thirty-something bottles of perfume and 103 sample vials on a dedicated closet shelf. And that doesn’t include the bottles… Read full post »
My husband and I had grown increasingly uneasy about our second child Mickey. Though a warm, engaging baby, he showed no interest in playing Peek-a-boo, How Big is the Baby, or waving bye-bye. At monthly visits the pediatrician assured us that all was well. But by 18 months, Mickey had only… Read full post »
