Be ye not so stupid

Mon, 22 May 2017 21:30:11 +0000

This morning Marlo woke up with a headache, fever, stomachache and a sore throat. I’m sorry, forgive me if I am mistaken, but wasn’t the tonsillectomy was supposed to cure that last symptom—if not cure it then at least make it a less frequent occurrence...

Books People Send Me, Installment Two

Fri, 19 May 2017 20:29:53 +0000

A couple of days ago I went completely off the rails about the panic attack I had at the world’s biggest Costco— apparently I used all of the f-words left in the world in that post, and this upset certain people who think I need...

A Costco-sized tangent that even I didn’t see coming

Wed, 17 May 2017 19:51:46 +0000

I’ve mentioned that when we moved we downsized by 75%, and about a month ago while walking through Costco I stopped dead in the paper towel aisle—BY THE WAY, my Costco, the Costco I attend, it is the biggest Costco in the world. Full stop....

“Questioning our lives during late night talks”

Tue, 16 May 2017 15:09:34 +0000

This year school teachers and friends stood in as a coparent for Mother’s Day to remind my kids that they should do something, anything, maybe even just wake up on the morning of and muse, “You know, things aren’t always awful, Mother Figure.” Leta wrote...

This Is How Marlo Does It

Fri, 12 May 2017 20:19:48 +0000

Remember when I told you that Marlo only reads fiction—or at least at night before she goes to sleep she’s finding out all sorts of things about Nancy and Zuzu and Emma in her books, all made-up characters who never want to frame each other...

Je m’appelle le croissant

Wed, 10 May 2017 18:52:05 +0000

In this photo Marlo is holding my Mother’s Day present, something called a SONNENGLAS, a mason jar with a solar panel lid containing LEDs that you can light up when the sun goes down. It was developed in South Africa as source of light for...

Siblings: An unscientific study in DNA

Mon, 08 May 2017 20:04:10 +0000

For the last six months I have been actively trying to foster a love of reading in Marlo that has up until this point been as absent as anything with color in Leta’s diet. It’s true, Leta’s menu hasn’t changed much from the four staples that...

Taking the crazy out of Coco

Thu, 04 May 2017 17:03:29 +0000

When I launched the redesign of this site I alluded to a slew of changes going in my life, a revamped brand that is easier on the eyes just one among many. A ton of change. Bunches of it. A move across town? Sure. A...

Their age difference is beneficial to at least one of them

Tue, 02 May 2017 16:57:40 +0000

The front of the new house faces west—I know you are squinting and trying to figure out what is going on with Marlo’s mouth in this photo but hold on a second, Hannah—and after one of the many recent rainstorms we’ve had the setting sun...

Mother’s Day 2017

Mon, 01 May 2017 11:55:25 +0000

I’m spending three days this week in San Francisco with the team at Every Mother Counts who see Mother’s Day as one of the best vehicles to try and raise money for the incredible work that they do around the globe. One of their current...
