What Every Jewish Girl Learns From Her Mother

A Thousand Small Heart Attacks

athousandsmallheartattacks.com — Visiting a girlfriend in the hospital yesterday I was momentarily jealous that she gets to spend a week without kids, packing lunches, doing laundry and the endless demands placed on every mom ever.

athousandsmallheartattacks.com — Hang the "good" ones on a designated wall in your home dubbed The Gallery. When the art gets stale, there's an overflow in The Gallery, or the seasons change and that snowman no longer makes sense on your wall in July, snap some photos of the pieces you actually still like looking at and then put every last piece of scribble and glue in the recycling bin.
