    Tonight is Rosh Hashanah. Oh the pressure. ‘Cause if it’s not enough to deal with lots of baking, cooking and cleaning, organizing, and shopping, primping, and dealing, (look at me I sound like a pimp) you gotta also take inventory and face your own guilt, misconducts,... read on

    Call me a hysterical over protective mother, but I still insist that my seven-year old son use the “women’s” public bathroom with his mother. I will do anything to avoid him entering the men’s bathroom alone. Pretty much, there isn’t a single bathroom break where Meir has... read on

    My 7 year old:  “Mommy, my birthday is in sixteen days! I am so excited!

    Me:  “I know sweety, what would you like for your birthday this year?
