Happy, Who’s Happy? Family / Huffington Post

A recent report has suggested that family “fun” is anything but, indicating that finding personal happiness through the act of having children is a tad… overrated, and concluding that in fact children can bring the level of “happy” down, not increase it. I don’t really think this will come to a surprise to many people — oh, sure there are some great times to be...

Birth Order Basics Family / Huffington Post

Recently there has been a lot of research published on the significance that the birth order of children, the number of children, and the sex of the siblings have on forming who we and our children turn out to be. Is it really that predetermined? Stereotypically, the oldest child is likely to be more academic, less of a risk taker, a perfectionist, more driven, and...

Sitting in my hotel’s dining room this morning in Bordeaux, France, watching residents drink impossibly small espressos, I likely gave an audible sigh of relief when my server offered me a large coffee. I’m not sure if it was my North American accent that tipped her off to the fact that a) I had no idea how to operate the complicated looking coffee machine that...

Medoc Marathon: Wine, French Bread and… Fishnet Stockings? Family / Huffington Post

The 27th annual Medoc Marathon was run last weekend, through the beautiful countryside of France. For those who haven’t heard of it, this is in fact a real marathon, with real runners. I was invited to participate, as press, not as a runner (I only run if someone is chasing me), an assignment I took on faster than a Beverley Hills Housewife takes on a...
