  • Motherhood 101: Teenage Drama

    By Ilana Angel

    November 25, 2013 | 7:56 am

    This is a typical conversation with my child:

    Me: Hi. How was your day?

    Him: Good

    Me: What happened at school?

    Him: Nothing.

    Me: Anything exciting going on?

    Him: Nope.

    Me: What did you learn today?

    Him: Stuff.

    Me: Great. Tell me about it.

    Him: Nothing to tell...

  • I’m Past All That

    By Teresa Strasser

    May 9, 2012 | 1:59 pm

    There is some unwritten statute of limitations on how long one can whine about a crappy childhood, a negligent parent, a few too many chicken pot pies, summers with the grandparents, days spent on Greyhound buses and with dubious caregivers and creepy neighbors. There is just a...

  • Three Jewish Mothers

    By Ilana Angel

    May 6, 2012 | 3:20 pm

    In speaking with both my mother, and the mother of my Englishman this weekend, I was struck by how similar these women are.  Not only to each other, but to me.  The three of us are all Jewish mothers, living in three different countries, but all with the same hopes and dreams for...

  • Mothers, Sons & Lessons in Love

    By Ilana Angel

    My heart has been broken.  When my father died it broke in a way that it will never recover from.  There is the heartbreak of loss and sorrow, and the heartbreak of love.  Both take your breath away and you are certain you will never recover.  While my heart will never be the same...

  • The Real Housewives of Orange County are Over

    By Ilana Angel

    February 16, 2012 | 4:27 pm

    I watched last weeks premier of RHOC and it took me 3 hours because I was so bored I stopped several times. These women are not interesting and have become a cliché.  Between the nipped bodies, plumped up faces, bleached hair, and fake friendships, I am done.  This is my one and...

  • Divorce & the Single Mother

    By Ilana Angel

    September 5, 2011 | 11:28 pm

    I have two friends, both with young children, who are currently going through divorces.  It is sad for the kids, and sad for my friends.  I met with one of these friends for dinner on Sunday night and we talked about all the things she is going through.  It was a trip down memory...

  • Sex, Drugs & Driving:  Surviving the Teenage Years

    By Ilana Angel

    When my son was a baby I could not wait for him to walk, now I wish he would just sit still.  I could not wait for him to talk, now I wish he would be quiet sometimes.  I could not wait for him to drive, and now I find myself praying he will fail his permit test and not be allowed to...

  • The Real Housewives of O.C. Are Back!

    By Julia Bendis

    I am ecstatic to say that the Real Housewives of Orange County are back on television!  Of course when I say ecstatic, I mean that in every sarcastic way possible…  Can’t you just feel me rolling my eyes when I write this?  Not only are they back for a brand new season, but this time...
