If you’ve been on the internet today, you’ve probably read the shocking news about Donald and Melania sleeping in separate rooms. It’s everywhere right now: NO PILLOW TALK FOR PRESIDENT! His marriage must be hanging by a thread! Well, maybe it is and maybe it isn’t.

My daughter Brontë recently started attending preschool. It was high time for her to go (she really wants to make friends with other children), but for me, it was bittersweet. It’s the end of an era: the World of Just Mommy and Brontë. It means she won’t stay a little girl forever. Someday she will […]Read More What’s Up With All the Peanut Allergies?
Bridget can now sit up all by herself and is really having fun with it. She lays on her back and pops up repeatedly like a little prairie dog. She must have killer abs.
