  • When I Was Your Age…
    Tweet Ever since I wrote that post on Mother’s Day I have been thinking of my mom and home. In fact even writing this post makes me all queasy inside. Of course that may have something to do with the fact that I woke up at 4am with 2 hours of sleep peppered with mommy duty interruptions to take a flight. Or maybe not. In between playing mom taxi to therapy, errands...

  • Are You Getting The Full Picture?
    Tweet You may have noticed that things around here don’t seem as busy as usual. That has nothing to do with having nothing to share with you but more about a mixture of timing and focus.

  • A Chat With John Leguizamo About Ice Age: Continental Drift, And More!

  • My thoughts on Brave, The Disney/Pixar movie!
    Tweet So by now you would have watched the movie Brave and if you have not, what are you waiting for? I have to admit I am a sucker for movies and if it is kid-friendly then all the better because it means I can share the big theater experience with my family. Movies beyond their age is relegated to watch-on-the-small-screen section. Needless to say I am a huge fan of...
