There I was at the usual place, usual time, and usual day of the week, doing the usual while watching the most unusual spectacle.  I was at Target shopping for superfluous items on my... read on

  • Alpha And Omega and A Four Year Old’s Opinion

    By Mihal Levy

    September 27, 2010 | 10:35 am

    What better way to know if a movie is child-worthy than to hear it from a child?  My son reviewed the movie Alpha and Omega as we left the theatre ten minutes early for a refill on popcorn that was clearly more interesting than the movie itself.  I will let my four year old son’s... read on

  • Stuff My Son Said…This Week

    By Mihal Levy

    September 26, 2010 | 11:00 am

    With each passing day, my son astounds me more and more.  Where does he come up with the things he says?  I used to write it all down, as I am sure every mom has at one point or another, usually during the child’s first year when everything is so exciting.  “He smiled.”... read on

  • Lions and Tigers and Bees, Oh My

    By Mihal Levy

    I feel like a bad mother.  I put my son in harm’s way.  I took him to the L.A. Zoo.  I know the animals are caged, but what about the bees?  Bees at the zoo?  Who knew?

    According to the warning sign at the entrance of the zoo, there were bees.  “Stinging bees.”  And for some... read on

    I think I am ready to tell my Vegas story now.  What happens in Vegas truly stays in Vegas…on the bathroom door of the hotel room, apparently, which was the start of my Rosh Hashanah/birthday week in Vegas.

    I headed to Las Vegas with my mother, husband and son last week to ring in... read on

  • Death and Netflix

    By Mihal Levy

    September 14, 2010 | 12:15 pm

    Once in a while my son will stump me with a question that I don’t have answers to or don’t quite know how to answer.  It usually can be resolved by a quick Google search, trip to the library or strategic distraction (which is usually not that difficult when you are dealing with a... read on

  • A New Year

    By Mihal Levy

    September 7, 2010 | 11:00 am

    September marks the new year for the Jews and double for me since it is also my birthday.  But September really should mark a new year for everyone, don’t you think?

    Literally when September 1st hits, there is something in the air.  A feeling that things are beginning to slow down a... read on

  • At Least Noah Had Fair Warning

    By Mihal Levy

    September 1, 2010 | 11:30 am

    Imagine waking up in a wading pool that is ankle-deep in your own bedroom.  Then, finding out that the water you are stepping in is sewage.  This is what I had to deal with almost two weeks ago, and the ordeal is still far from over.

    I didn’t even have fair warning to grab two of... read on
