Little Lovebirds

November 15, 2010

They met at the gym.  Kindergym, to be exact.  And it was love at first sight.   And now, my three year-old has a girlfriend. This is legit.  Starry-eyed, hand-holding, I want to tickle you, completely crazy love. The girl is great.  We love her.   In fact, if they manage to avoid cooties and grow...

Like Mother Like Son

September 11, 2010

Hayden has always loved music, and now he has found a love for creating his own.  While he prefers to be on vocals, lately he’s been giving Mommy’s drums a beating.  He’s a natural, don’t you think?  Even if he does have a short attention span.

Touching Rays

July 27, 2010
Touching Rays

A quick update on the carpet saga.  The relatives are all up in a tizzy.  I’ve got my mother calling four times in one day, telling me what to do (You should take this up with your landlord. You should…).  I’ve got my aunt scaring the be-Jeebuz out of me with her talk of...

A Beard Story

May 20, 2010
A Beard Story

It was a nice day, so Hayden and I were at the park.  We went for a run, rode the train, and were enjoying the sunshine.  Hayden in his aviators, I in my grocery-store-favorites.  I was doing a little stretching while Hayden played in the grass when I noticed a man woman, about 20...

Noah’s Ark at the Skirball

February 17, 2010
Noah’s Ark at the Skirball

The hype is well-deserved.  Noah’s Ark at the Skirball is remarkable.  What doesn’t impress your child will certainly impress you, from the beautiful, clean architecture and grounds of the Skirball Center, to the clever use of materials in the construction and presentation of the exhibit. Noah’s Ark is an interactive world, offering ropes to...

Let’s Drive!

February 15, 2010
Let’s Drive!

Hayden’s new favorite activity (besides watching Calliou) is driving Daddy’s car.  Not a day goes by that he doesn’t ask me, “Wanna get in daddy’s car?” Interpreted: “I want to get in Daddy’s car.” I try to engage him in something else, such as playing with LEGOS, going for a walk, helping me cook...

With the winter holidays in the distant past and spring still a light-year away, I have had to go back to planning cool kid-friendly activities (other than taking Hayden to Costco, which he loves).  Here you will find a list of some great places around Los Angeles.  If you live elsewhere, consider this list...

Rainy Day Activities

January 27, 2010

“Cook” Something at Home A rainy day is a great opportunity for you to cook something together at home, like a warm pot of soup or a baked treat.  Little kids love to get in on the action with tasks like placing items in a bowl, helping to stir, or adding something to the...
