The Great Lunch Divide

By Mihal Levy

February 19, 2010 | 2:07 pm

In the midst of a great picnic at the park with my son the other day, a feeling of gloom engulfed me.  I realized my son is doomed…if his future relies on my lunch-packing skills (and we... read on

  • A Groupie After All

    By Mihal Levy

    February 15, 2010 | 12:28 pm

    I never thought I would do it.  Join a group?  Not me.  Even a group such as Holistic Moms that goes against the grain (no pun intended) is still a group.  And groups are, well, just not my thing.  Once someone joins a group, there is no end in sight.  Then there are twelve steps,... read on

    It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and you know what that means.  Overpriced chocolates and flowers?  Yes.  But even more so – yet another Jewish dilemma.  (Another one?  Of course.)  To celebrate or not to celebrate…that is the question.  And I have the answer…well sort of.

  • The Blinded Voyeur

    I can’t believe my next door neighbor finally put up blinds.  What was she thinking?  Who would look in anyway at her spotless counter tops, orchid centerpiece-clad dining room table and awesome bright green mixer that I’m sure actually holds eight cups of flour when making challah... read on

  • Mom’s Apology

    By Mihal Levy

    February 4, 2010 | 3:12 pm

    I feel that I owe my son an apology for yesterday.  Although I didn’t do anything major as far as things go that merit apologies, I still feel I owe him one.  (Yes, I will read it to him.)  So here it goes:

  • Becoming Mom

    February 3, 2010 | 3:05 pm

    I do not believe that you become a mom just because you have a child.  The same way you do not become a grandparent becaue you have grandkids or an aunt or uncle because you have nieces or nephews.  One must earn their title.

    February 1, 2010 | 2:45 pm

    As the wife of a professional musician, the future of the music industry is pretty important, as you can imagine.  For creative reasons…and for our family’s livelihood, of course.  But, after the Grammy Awards last night, I think we may both have to pick up a couple of day jobs or my... read on

  • Post-Traumatic Makeup Counter Disorder

    By Mihal Levy

    January 27, 2010 | 2:38 pm

    What is it with the carts in the mall that want me to try their dead sea products, hair-straightening irons and switch my cell phone provider over to theirs?  How come I can get their attention, but I am not worthy of the new fragrance spritz in the cosmetic section of a department... read on
