  • Motherhood & Housekeeping

    By Ilana Angel

    2 weeks ago

    My son is an actor. He is an amazing performer, insanely handsome, crazy funny, and talented in a way I sometimes can’t wrap my head around. He is magic and not because I'm his mom and said so, but because he simply is. This week, while performing in a comedy improve show, he...

  • My son wears dresses, and I have no problem with it

    July 18, 2014 | 9:40 am

    Every morning my four-year-old daughter, Sydney, drags a chair into her closet and plucks a dress off of the rack.  I try to lean her in other directions—“Why don’t we try shorts today?”—but Sydney’s stubborn.  And I think she deserves the freedom to choose what she wants to wear. ...

  • What Does Love Look Like?

    By Ilana Angel

    November 26, 2013 | 7:06 am

    I think about love often. I am blessed to know love in my family, child, friends, and faith. I have been held hostage by the way love is presented by Hollywood, and bought into the romance sold to me by writers of great love stories. I have dreams and fantasies about how I want...

    This is a typical conversation with my child:

    Me: Hi. How was your day?

    Me: Anything exciting going on?

    Him: Nope.

    In honor of Mother’s Day, I am submitting my mother's blog and would like to give 17 reasons as to why my Mother is the best, on account of the fact that is how many Mother’s Days she has had.

  • Leaving Home or Going Home?

    By Ilana Angel

    August 9, 2012 | 12:23 am

    I am heading home to Canada today.  It is the first time I am going home to see my family in 2 years.  My mother has been here to see me, but I’ve not been to see my siblings, nieces or nephews.  I love them all very much and this is too long to not see them.  Not only am I going...

  • A son and his Jewish mother

    July 31, 2012 | 10:00 am

    A pervasive Jewish mythology has always idealized the mother-son relationship.  But Proust knew better.  Shortly after his mother’s death, he wrote an article in Le Figaro about a man who bludgeoned his mother to death and attempted to speculate what might have ignited this man’s...

  • Sex, Drugs & Driving:  Surviving the Teenage Years

    By Ilana Angel

    August 17, 2011 | 1:06 pm

    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 Son Will Come Out Tomorrow!

    July 31, 2011 | 3:08 pm

    The sun’ll come out
    Tomorrow
    Bet your bottom dollar
    That tomorrow
    There’ll be SON!

    After 31 days my son will be home tomorrow.  I have missed him more than I thought I would, and I thought it would be a lot.  On one hand I feel like the time has been passing slowly, and on the...

    By Julia Bendis

    July 29, 2011 | 9:48 pm

    The teenager in me is at it again!  Every time I pass a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, I have to stop, look at it, examine it and maybe even take a picture for my “wish list” of things I want on my future bike.  Sometimes I’ll even talk to the owner of the bike to get more details on...

    When Adam Nimoy was growing up, he felt alienated from his famous father.

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    October 5, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Add family drama plus FBI action, and the sum equals CBS's hit drama, "Numb3rs." The show, which just started its third season, is as much about fathers and sons as it is about using mathematics to solve crimes. Alan Eppes (Judd Hirsch) is the widowed patriarch to two disparate...

  • ‘Steins’ Skewers Simcha Rivalry

    By Tom Tugend

    April 27, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    "Keeping Up With the Steins" proves that you don't have to be Jewish to make a funny, insider Jewish film, or that if you grow up in the Bronx or went to school in North Hollywood, you become a Jew by osmosis.

    Case in point is the son-father team of Scott and Garry Marshall, with the...
