Found at last!

Here I am, 20 months old. Thankfully, the photographer had the wherewithal to pose me so my Dumbo ears were not noticeable, because heaven knows my hair was taking its sweet time to grow.It’s her! It’s her! It’s her!As most of you know, I’m rarely speechless. Almost never without a smart remark to widely share.But I am tonight.I can’t think straight except to know I finally found my birth mother, Patricia Clark. A…See More

Jammin' in my Jammies

It’s true I’m trying a resolution or two in 2013, but one thing will certainly not change: I will continue to embarrass Catherine (recognizing that this is often an innate talent of mine. No effort required).And there’s no better time than the present.We offered a special Pajama Party Jazzercise class today at the Jazzercise Center of Southwestern Connecticut — a fun way to get people started off…See More

Looking back on a year full of laughs

We started 2012 with a walk at the beach and a promise to breathe and keep things in balance.It was the last time that happened all year.Like many of you, we had a year full of ups and downs, challenges, setbacks, milestones and, well, you name it. Through it all, we tried — very hard — to keep laughing. Here are some of the highlights; click the links to read the full stories.Keep reading at…See More

Blow Santa one last kiss...

Sixteen years ago, we took Catherine to visit this very anemic Santa at the mall. The shutter caught her expression just before the tears started. …Catherine and I took deep breaths, swallowed hard and made a commando raid on the mall today, getting in and out before all the crazy people took over. Somehow we managed it with some of our sanity intact.Even though he’s been…See More

In search of confirmation, validation … and myself

Here I am, 20 months old. Thankfully, the photographer had the wherewithal to pose me so my Dumbo ears were not noticeable, because heaven knows my hair was taking its sweet time to grow.Life doesn’t turn out how you plan — if you can plan at all.I’m reminded of this today, because I’ve reached a tremendous milestone and it doesn’t feel a thing like I…See More

Hey Santa: I’m still wishin’ and hopin’ you’ll deliver

Dear Santa:I can only presume that my letter of last year did not reach you. I’m not sure whether to blame the U.S. Postal Service or some Internet bug, but I was sorely disappointed to reach all the way down to the toe of my stocking — down where I once would find a Bonne Bell watermelon lip gloss or other smallish treat — and find last year’s wishes hadn’t been granted.Maybe I wasn’t good enough, although heaven knows I try. Once again this year, I have fed my family nutritious meals, cleaned…See More

Help! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Anyone else look at the calendar this past week and realize just how close Christmas is?I haven’t stopped hyperventilating since I noticed.Not that it should be a surprise. Christmas comes every year after all.And it’s not like there weren’t clues: Even before everyone had their power and cable restored following Superstorm Sandy, the stores were quickly changing the merchandise. And as the…See More
