Dear Vera & Jules: Think of Me as Every Place

Dear Vera & Jules, It’s Christmas afternoon in Los Angeles, warm and sunny, and there is still sand between my toes from our walk on the beach today. You both woke up promptly at 6AM, excited to see what Santa brought for you, and if he liked the cookies you made for him, and Vera Read more…

Dear Girls: On Being Brave

Dear Girls, Last week I took you for a check up at the doctor’s office and you both got a few shots. Picture me sitting on the exam table one of you in each of my arms, clinging to me, hot and sweaty with tears and quaking sobs. My heart both breaks and swells into Read more…

Notes from Ohio

Hello from Ohio! As I write this a winter storm is raging softly outside the windows. Juliette is napping, Vera is drawing, and my mother-in-law is reheating last night’s Christmas meal. We head home tomorrow (snow permitting) after a solid ten days in the midwest. It’s been such a nice trip, catching up with old Read more…

Notes from Chicago

Hello from Chicago! It’s cold here. But it feels oh-so warm and lovely to be seeing old friends and family. We spent yesterday afternoon and evening at Greg’s sister’s house and Vera could not have been more thrilled to be reunited with her cousins. I can’t even tell you how happy it makes me to Read more…

Dear Girls: We Went to Australia!

Dear Girls, It’s late in the evening as I write this, and you’re both asleep in our little home in Santa Monica. We returned home from Australia three days ago and you’re both settling back into your routines like nothing’s changed. But something has changed, little ones.

Back from Oz

I’m back from Australia. Whew, that was quite a trip! I have much, much, much to say but we’re all pretty jet lagged and swamped with unpacking and whatnot. Greg is off to NYC tomorrow morning for work and I’m trying to batten down the hatches for dealing with both girls on my own while Read more…

Notes from Melbourne

Hi from Melbourne! It’s 7am here and I’ve been up for two and a half hours, thanks to a crying Juliette and the fact that we’re all still trying to figure out the time change. It’s the third day in a row that we’ve all been up by 5am and unfortunately for us, nothing in Read more…

Dear Girls: On Stepping Out Into the World

Dear Girls, We’re  leaving tonight for Australia. There’s a good chance that twenty years from now you’ll be sitting in the office of a therapist complaining about how your crazy mother dragged you around the world and on weird adventures. Your therapist will clasp her hands and nod gently and probe a little deeper. You’ll Read more…

What’s Keeping Me Up at Night

Both girls were up at 4:30AM this morning. First Vera woke with a nightmare (something about me being on a stage with her best friend Zoe) and only wanted me, not Greg, to lay down with her. I was sleeping with the baby, who of course woke up the moment I departed our bed for Read more…

Countdown to Australia!

Well, it’s official: me and my little family are headed to Australia in a month. I guess this trip has been official for some time, but only until now have I been able to release my the full details of my itinerary. Anyway, I can’t even tell you how excited we all are to go Read more…
