Up to the moon and stars

Once upon a Cambridge spring, The stars did a dance and the moon began to sing. “She’s here,” crooned the wind, the sky gathered around her. “The best mommy’s been born! She’s here! We have found her!” You see, everyone thinks that when babies arrive They’re the most sacred things born from the sky. But the stars and the moon knew ...

Septembers past

Over the weekend, as we gathered around my parents' table for dinner, my kids, Kenny, mom, and dad decided to play a new mealtime game: Let's make fun of Becca!!!!! (is the working title, I believe). I have anxiety, and anxiety + pandemic + virtual school + the impending election + 2020 = MAJOR ANXIETY My kids have taken ...

Dear babies

Dear babies, First off, I know that you are not babies.  But, I also know that when I feel one of you reach for me in the middle of the night, or smile as you greet me with sleepy, almond-eyes first thing in the morning, or kiss your eyelids as you slumber, it's just like you are my little babies all over again. It ...

Not enough

The photo above was taken last month at Ludlow House, on the Lower East Side, for my sister's pub day party. It shows a little bit of sparkle. And makeup. And the cool updo. And glitter. Gotta get my glitter back.  *** I couldn’t have scripted this any better. This morning, I woke up and I lingered in ...

I got a little sad

I have had a lot of blog posts formulating in my head. I want to share so much with you. I have wanted to share what I have been up to; some cool updates. I have wanted to share with you some fun or helpful or pretty new finds so that you can enjoy them like I have. I thought that ...

Cake Smash

On October 24, my son--my precious, strong boy--turned three. I am so proud of the little person he has become. My son knows what he wants in this world and he fights for it (even if that is the entire box of MOREOS! NOW!) He is incredibly kind and he loves his family deeply... but no one compares to his big ...

All the feelings.

It has been a little too long since I've last written, and that is because I have started and stopped this post (in my head, on paper and on this keyboard) time and time again, but unable to get it out of my heart and onto the page or screen or full consciousness. This past week ...

Brighter than the sun

Yesterday, I posted a photo collage on Instagram with pictures of my daughter as she went off to have her Kindergarten school pictures taken. I could not believe that she was doing something so grown up; that she looked so mature; that she is so beautiful. I know that it is a thing that people say, but it ...

Be My Baby

Last week, in my post about my emotional day, I wrote the following: "I had at least a handful of moments where I would catch eyes with my son and smile and he would beam back at me with his grin that is becoming more toothy by the day. I think there is a small part of ...

My Nanny

I have written on this site, since it's inception, about my Nanny. My Nanny was my grandmother on my dad's side. She was incredibly special to me, and I lost her when I was 13 years old after a furious 6 month battle with cancer. She is why I have a thing for feathers and lucky pennies. She ...
