Why We Chose Montessori

I am the mother of a moment maker. I use to grumble at this title. I was constantly giving up moments to his teachers for various issues he had during the day. I never thought that I would one day accept my moment maker for what he is – perfect. Through the years, my moment […]

Who Are We To Judge Jerry Seinfeld?

Every now and then I get up on a soap box, this is going to be one of those moments. Last week Jerry Seinfeld disclosed to NBC News Brian Williams, “I think–and on a very drawn out scale–I think I’m on the spectrum. You’re never paying attention to the right things.
