Seth: "Kyle, come here! You've got to see this! I'm getting underarm hair!"
Kyle, examining Seth's hairless and pale underarms. "I don't see anything there."
Seth: "No, there's a hair! Really! It's awesome!"
I'm Diane, the mom of three boys, living in a New York City apartment that's too small to contain all the energy of our five family members. Mick, my sweetie pie husband, and I spend many, many hours trying to understand who our kids are and what they need, with variable degrees of success. In between, we work, pay bills, read semi-voraciously, plan playdates and work on our money pit of a beach shack--where something is always falling apart, much to our surprise.
