  Written by Marianne Riess Some destinations never grow old. For me, that destination is France. I am always happy to go back. In October of 2014, my husband and I took a trip to Paris and Normandy. We arrived and spent four days in Paris, visiting the familiar and the new. My desire was a small boutique hotel on the Left Bank - Hotel Montelambert was perfect. The Louvre, Notre Dame, Musee d’Orsay, the Tuileries Gardens, and...

Jean Kinkead Martine (Remy's Grandmother, Anne’s mother) Anyone who has ever been involved in going from a large, unwieldy ménage to something more in keeping with a diminished household knows there is a surfeit of opinion on the subject and little consensus. Then, once the move is actually made, there is ongoing commentary. Last week I received a letter from a distant classmate who had caught up with our news through the grapevine. “I do hope,...

  As Mom of the Week in July 2013, Anitra felt her greatest asset was her voice. She loved to sing, read dramatically and do voice-over commercials. She enjoyed providing vocal percussion while her 5-year old son Zafran made up songs about his toys. Music was a driving force in her life, but she had just had a second baby. She was busy caring for her children, doing private vocal coaching and writing songs. By December 2014,...

  On the spectrum of helicopter parents, I hover somewhere in the middle of all the hovering. I've been known to hand feed my 6-year-old daughter bites of broccoli if she's too distracted to get the job done. I hold myself back from adding activities to our calendar, restricting my kids to a mere "too many." I won't comment on how many bottoms I'm wiping on any given week.
