Aerin’s Eczema Treatments (Part Deux)

Aerin was only 4 months old when I first wrote about her eczema. We had been hoping that she would grow out of the condition by 6 months old, or even 1 year old, but that has not been the case. 🙁 However, we have tried new products and changed her skin routine somewhat, so I […]

Calvin and Hobbes Search Engine!

You guys, I discovered the best thing today… A Calvin and Hobbes search engine!!! Calvin and Hobbes remains my favorite comic strip despite the fact that it is no longer published. And as I have written in the past, one of my all-time favorite gifts from J is the Calvin and Hobbes Boxed Set. I can’t […]

Drinking in LA vs. Drinking in NYC

What do you guys think? Pretty accurate? I can’t remember the last time I drank drank in LA (as in go out to a bar/lounge, not just have a beer or two with dinner…or get tipsy at a wedding 😉 ), but what I do remember are the early last calls and the relatively cheaper drinks. Oh, […]

Claire’s First Lie

A few days ago, Claire told her first lie. She and Aerin were playing together when Claire got angry over something, grabbed the toy in Aerin’s hand, and threw it. And when J approached her to remind her that she shouldn’t throw things, she outright told him that it was Aerin who threw the toy! […]

A Visual Timeline of the Future (As Per Famous Novels)

Books and infographics. How could I resist? Designed by Italian artist Giorgia Lupi, this timeline of future events as predicted by famous novels was originally published in the Sunday supplement of Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera. She generously created an English version for the site Brain Pickings, and I can’t help but be mesmerized! The resulting visualization is predictably HUGE, […]

The Baby of the Family

Ever since Aerin got sick last week, she has been super SUPER clingy to me. Before her illness, she was a pretty independent little girl. Now she needs to be held all the time — only by me, no less, and starts screaming her head off if she can’t see me. Even her two favorite […]

Because I’m Sure I Can’t Be the Only One

There are some things I find weird about myself (sometimes, in conjunction with others in my life) but I know there must be others out there who do the same…right? I occasionally weigh myself before and after pooping just to see if there’s a difference. (It’s never as much as I expect or hope.) Every few […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope all my readers have plenty to be thankful for this year! (image source) As for me, I will be headed to two Thanksgiving dinners tonight. My mouth is already watering as I think about all the turkey + kimchi I will consume… (Yes, I eat them together and yes, it’s a rockin’ combo!) […]

What Are the Chances?!?!!!

Yesterday was a cool yet pleasant day. With temperatures in the low 50s and the sun shining overhead, I decided to take Aerin for a walk despite my lingering cold. (Claire was with her grandparents.) We walked the 22 blocks to my favorite children’s park and I sat Aerin down on a swing. She hadn’t […]
