Teaching My Son to Not Be Like the New President
Yesterday, as I drove Oren and Erez to daycare, I had NPR on

My Happiest Baby is the One I Have Had the Least to Do With
When Erez was born back in February, I was a little worried.

Oren's Birth Story
On Tuesday we celebrated Oren's first birthday. I
can't believe that Oren has been a part of my life, and a part
of our family, for ONLY one year. One year ago, I was still pregnant five
days after Oren's expected birthdate. I had been hoping for the
