Eight-year-old swallows magnets and steel balls

Carmel isn't family friendly

Not that we were planning on leaving San Francisco anyway, but if we did, we surely wouldn't be moving to Carmel, Indiana. Why not, you ask? Because it's not "family friendly". Earlier this week, the Carmel City Council voted 5-2 not to adopt a resol...

Traveling for the holidays

Ah, December. It's a month I look forward to in a way, one that should be filled with evenings of hot chocolate by the fireside and sugarplum fairies. It should be filled with snow-covered trees and wrapping up in warm blankets with the rest of the...

Split families and the holidays

With whom do you spend your holidays? Do you rotate them between your and your spouse's families? Do you hot one set for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas/Hanukkah? What about when divorce is involved? With our families, the holidays become a lit...

[Have baby: Will travel chronicles one new family's roadtrip adventure from New York to the South...and back.] Wow. I've been without consistent (or any) Internet access since I last wrote, and all I can say is: wow. I never realized how dependen...

Have baby: Will travel...things I've learned

In no particular order: Because I don't own a car, driving is an adventure, especially when you're surrounded by careening semis. Also, basically no one seems to know how to drive (including us). My husband can put together the pack and play i...

Have baby: Will travel...pictures (finally)

No road trip is worth documenting without pictures. Pictures make anything more personal, and now I finally have mine to share with you so I can leave the good folks over at everystockphoto.com to their own devices. The pictures so far are of the...

Have baby: Will travel...around town

This morning I am officially exhausted, and too tired to be witty and funny like I want to be. I am so out of it that I didn't even realize, until someone told me at 10:00 that night, that yesterday was July 1st. That phenomenon is what I love best...
