Pretty Little Liars by Jane Buckingham

My daughter has the sweetest face. Butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth. In fact, prior to her last first grade parent conference she was asked to write down three goals. Here’s what they were:


1)    ‘Get betr at reeding’

(Great, though might have suggested spelling…

Moonfrye Family: Pancakes by Elizabeth Flora Ross

I’m going to be honest; I was dreading summer.


With my daughter in preschool a couple of days a week, I had time for myself. To write. To relax. To go to the bathroom alone.


After three years of intensive parenting, it was a nice change of pace.


Now that has to be put…

Behind the scenes at the Today Show

So I got a call from my friends at Today Show asking me to come and visit them this morning. I must say that this group of people are some of the warmest and kindest I know in NYC. You walk on stage and it is electrifying. The energy is positive and they always have amazing people doing music…

Moonfrye Family: The Graduate by Katie Hurley

Sleep eluded her the night before. 


She shut her eyes tight, willing her exhaustion to win the battle.  But her worries just wouldn’t give up the fight.


“Will I go back to my preschool next year, Mommy?  Will I see my teachers again?”


“Next year you get…

Moonfrye Family: Greetings and Farewells by Julie Cole

I’ve spoken before about how I think it’s important to always look happy when you see your children. Whether the kids are walking in from school or I’m picking them up from Cubs, I try to look ridiculously excited to see them. Sometimes I have to fake…

What to do when you are in a hotel room alone and miss your family. A photo shoot of course.

I spend so much of my time traveling and I love it. I love the balance of both being a mom and having a career that I am truly passionate about. I feel blessed. So much of my work feels like play. I get to be surrounded by incredible people that inspire me daily. Sometimes when I am on the road in the late night hours, I miss my family. Even if I am only away for 24 hours. So being the silly girl that I am, I like to do photo shoots. I just can't help myself. It keeps it fun light and the…

Moonfrye Family: The Motherhood Test by Mary Lauren Weimer

The first time I got the call from daycare I was in between clients at the Counseling Center. He'd felt fine that morning but his breakfast made a repeat appearance before nap time.

I steadied my voice, said I'd be there as soon as possible. But inside I was anything but steady.

This was a test, taking care of a stomach-sick child, and I was on my own because my husband was gone overnight.

It was a motherhood test.

I passed. That day I walked across the…

Moonfrye Family: Bug Girl by Elizabeth Flora Ross

My three-year-old daughter is fascinated with bugs. She loves to read about them and look at pictures. Watch bug-themed movies. Observe insects outdoors (except when they bite her delicate skin).


She knows all kinds of interesting facts about insects, depending on your perspective. And whenever we…

Moonfrye Family: "Boys Will Be Boys" and Other Annoying Assumptions by Julie Cole

Last week I told my tween girls that I’d got them a subscription to a magazine. I thought they’d be excited, but instead they responded with “We don’t want it mom – we don’t want to read about lip gloss”. Interesting. They already know what they’re being fed and don’t like…

Moonfrye Family: The Big Work of Motherhood by Mary Lauren Weimer

We sat cross-legged on the bedroom floor, the four of us, and counted ceiling stars. They were plastic, glow-in-the-dark, the kind you buy in packs at the drug store. By then, entire constellations had gone the way of single LEGO blocks: down the vents or in between couch cushions, or into the slobbery mouths of our dogs. But a handful remained, stuck onto the plaster with putty wads.

We named them, listened to the sounds as they echoed through make-believe…

Moonfrye Family: Learning to Swim by Elizabeth Flora Ross

Our three-year-old daughter loves water. After two years of group classes at a local YMCA that didn’t really yield results, we have signed her up for private instruction with a swimming coach this summer.


I wish we’d done so sooner. She is making incredibly progress.


Last weekend we…
