  • Is Your Toddler Speaking English Yet?

    No parent likes to admit her child is behind developmentally. While I’ve spent months crowing about The Bees’ physical agility I have been noticeably subdued on the topic of speaking. It's not that she hasn't been talking. Vying for airtime with her parents, her observations become...

  • Weird Lyrics to Lullabies

    I mentioned earlier that I enjoy singing to The Bees throughout the day but particularly before bedtime. For lullabies I rely on an old book my mother used called “Lullabies and Night Songs”. The illustrations were done by Maurice Sendak, so you can imagine the whimsy in the beasts and the...

  • Jekyll and Hyde

    I have borne a monster into this world. Not a terrible one, but one that has two distinct behaviors, angelic and demonic, that turn on a dime. One minute The Bees will be laughing and jolly playing with her Dad and then she sees me and collapses at my feet whining and scowling, crying to be held and...

  • Singing: Entertainment or Torture?

    My mother rocked her three babies to sleep with lullabies. We grew up singing songs around the piano as she banged away. I sang in every chorus and choir in school, and yodeled away in coffeehouses and talent shows. I was paid to sing, both in college and in Japan. At the pinnacle of success I sang at...

  • Wrangling With The Car Seat

    Seems like I frequently write about fighting with child apparatus. It can't be any sort of deficiency on my part. It's got to be that this equipment is simply poorly designed, malfunctioning and created to vex me. Two weeks ago I noticed The Bees' knees were bent in order to fit into her...

  • Bullied by the Diaper Genie

    All diaper genies are not created equal. There are the Glorious Saviors and there are the Evil Bullies. Do yourself and your whole family and all your friends a favor. Don't buy a Diaper Genie. Buy the Diaper Genie II, or anything else under the sun including just the plain old trash pail. It's...

  • My Baby is Better Than Yours

    We all like to compare our children. I suppose some need to boast that their child is smarter, quicker, and more agile than her peers. Well I know for a fact that The Bees is. But some of my friends also fear that their child might in some way be lagging developmentally so they thrive on quizzing me...

  • Murphy's Law of Napping

    Its Murphy's Law that on the day when you have two doctor appointments for yourself that you've skillfully scheduled in between her nap hours you cannot seem to get your baby to nap. You know you are going to pay for it big time when exactly 15 minutes before you are due to appear in your doctor's...

  • Addendum to the Piece About The Bees' Father

    CB would like me to add an addendum to the piece about him. First, it's INDIE ROCK he likes, not alternative (what do I know?). Also he doesn't always empty the candy dish into his pocket. Sometimes he only takes 10 or 11 mints. To be fair, too, I must herewith state what an excellent father...

  • Hats of all Kinds

    Lately The Bees has been obsessed with hats. Although she always tries to yank off whatever is atop her own head she beams and calls out "Hat hat" when I put one myself on to walk the dog. She rejoices in a bonnet on her doll, and the rain hat on Paddington bear. She notes that her small plastic...
