I love my kid. Love him in a profound way that makes me marvel at the blessings I have been given in being the mother of this remarkable human being. My son is smart, funny, kind, gentle, aware, talented, compassionate, fair, open, handsome, and delicious. I marvel at who he has...

As those of us in Los Angeles are painfully aware, the 405 freeway is going to be closed this coming weekend. For a city where people drive across the street instead of walking, it shall be hell on earth. I plan to stay within 4 miles of my home over the weekend, in addition to not...

1. Why Oh why do people insist on asking how you are doing, when they don’t plan on listening to the answer? Just say “Hello” and keep walking! But don’t ask people how they are, and then interrupt them mid-sentence to tell them how late you are and need to run!
2. Why is it that...

Lately I’ve been thinking about the many jobs I have had, all through my teenage years and adulthood. The reason I started thinking about them is simple: every time my children talk about what they want to do when they grow up, and it changes daily, I usually have a funny anecdote...

As much as I love to participate in any and all civic duties, being chosen for Jury Duty just wasn’t going to happen. Believe it or not, this was the first time I had ever received a notification requiring me to fulfill my civil duty. As I opened the letter, immediately I started...

What started out as a surprise of a lifetime, quickly turned into a XXX porn show for many children and one particular fifth-grader.
I like to think that I am a pretty fun parent, but when my husband and I surprised our eleven-year-old with tickets to Thirty Seconds to Mars concert,...

My son and I were spending last Sunday together, just the two of us. We ran some errands, bought him things for school, and went to lunch. As we were driving past a Petsmart store, we saw a sign for an organization that adopts out dogs. Knowing my son, I tried to avert the car so...

I am a big quitter, and I come from a long line of quitters. My whole family is that way, we get excited to start something, but rarely do we actually finish or go through with it. We always have the best excuses to quit something, not only does it make sense for us to quit...

I started on an endless journey to find a new house. Everyone knows how incredibly daunting and frustrating that can be, but throw in a few plumbing issues in the house that we are currently in, and it makes for a very urgent matter… For days now, my husband and I have been going...

- When people say that they are only 5 minutes away, they are really 20 minutes away.
- If your Doctor’s appointment is at 3 p.m., show up at 3:15 to skip sitting in the waiting room. It works like a charm!
- When your kid is going on and on about something, and the story doesn’t...

The other key to enjoying this city is, of course, your car. When I moved out West, I was a timid, passive driver. Now I’m aggressive, confident and, most importantly, mostly safe. Follow my tips and you’ll feel confident behind the wheel ... and you won’t even have to lift a finger, let alone “the finger.”

On May 7, exactly 16 years minus 5 1/2 hours after his birth, my son, Gabe, took his driving test at the Winnetka Department of Motor Vehicles office.
"Are you nervous?" the test instructor asked.
"Yes," Gabe answered.
"Don't be, or we'll both be dead."
I, too, was nervous....
