    on Jun 26, 2014 in Uncategorized
    At the pool, Evan encounters a Japanese-speaking toddler. They approach each other and stare. A pause. The little Japanese boy looks at Evan and makes a raspberry sound with his mouth. He grins. Evan grins. They stare at each other for a moment. Then...

    This isn’t a mommy blog. Really, it’s not. And I don’t intend to make it one. But this is the place where I write what I write, and what I write is often a reflection of what I’m doing and thinking about. Having had a baby nea...

    on Nov 14, 2012 in thoughts
    Faint stirrings, a whimper, a frown that seems to melt your entire face like wax dripping down a candle, a frown that threatens to morph into a full-blown yowl. You turn restlessly to and fro, and I try to determine whether you’re about to cry...
