The Felafel Seller’s Surprise for My Daughter

Today my 16-year-old daughter was buying felafel in Tel Aviv’s Carmel Market when the seller said, “Oh, you finally came back!” And then he reached behind him and handed her a bag. “You were here in July, and forgot this!” Inside the bag were a beach volleyball, 2 pairs of goggles, 2 sun hats and lots of sand, forgotten souvenirs from one of Moriah’s many trips to the beach this past summer. When I heard this story, I smiled. How amazing to live in a country that, so often, feels like a small town. And my...

When Your Child is Struggling: Changing Your Paradigm by Rabbi YY Jacobson

This is a short yet incredibly powerful excerpt from a class given at a shabbaton for parents of kids on their own derech. The entire class was 2 hours long and despite it’s length, I listened to it non-stop, completely mesmerized. 2 hours of heart-felt chizuk for parents like me, of kids marching to the beat of their own drums, a reminder of the special privileged shlichut Hashem has given us.

Being Sick Doesn’t Mean I have to be Miserable

This meme has been the story of my last week and a half. My home has been a revolving door of this “SAFEK” epidemic circling the globe: one sick family member gets healthy only to be replaced by another healthy family member getting sick, and so on and so forth. Today and yesterday I was the one down. My symptoms were minor relative to what the rest of my family went through, and I’m feeling mostly over it now. But there was a big difference between my first day and my second day sick. And in case you are in...

The Supermarket’s Surprising Delivery

[This post is an oldie but goodie from 6 years ago] Yesterday morning I did a big shopping trip at the supermarket, and then I came home and waited for it to be delivered. I’ve done many deliveries over the years, and I’ve seen with my own eyes many of the things that can go wrong. Exploded cottage cheeses. Shattered grape juice bottles. Leaky fabric softener. Missing refrigeration bags. Receiving the wrong delivery. But I like this specific grocery store since their delivery service is excellent. Nothing broken. No mix-ups or mishaps. So...

This is How I DON’T Juggle Everything by Goldie Tenenbaum Grossbaum

Of all the things I’ve discovered in the past 11 years of motherhood, I’ve reluctantly come to terms with the fact that I cannot micromanage every corner of my house or everything my kids are doing. Actually, I cannot micromanage anything. PJ’s end up in the middle of the playroom and don’t necessarily get put in the hamper. Wet towels pile up on the floor of the bathroom after shower time. I don’t always know if everyone washed their hands before supper. It can take a few days until I get wind of a particular project going on in one...
