Dear Mr. Ice Cream Man. Now that I live in an idyllic suburban community, you’re part of my summer family life. So I’ll make a deal with you.
During a decade of train, subway, and bus commutes, I saw enough to know that riding the T while pregnant might not be the best of experiences.

Here in beautiful metro Boston, there’s a 75% chance any day between November 1 and May 5 will be a snow day. Days without structure are really hard for our family, so I’ve put together a schedule for our snow days. You’ll see I like to keep my goals realistic and achievable. Feel free to […]
