My son was accepted to Juilliard!
This is my son on registration day at Juilliard. We are so excited. But not surprised. That's what happens when you work this hard. You are not surprised. I am told it's rare for a kid to get into Juilliard on the first try. Kids audition for three, ...

My startup is imploding. I mean pivoting.
Last week my older son took the SAT subject test for biology. He was supposed to take the AP test for biology but I didn't realize that you have to start registering a homeschooler for AP tests around the time a NYC parent would start registering the...

What it's like to audition at Juilliard. When you're 11.
The first round of auditions for Juilliard's pre-college program is by video. From December to March my son practiced for three hours a day to prepare. At the end of March we recorded him playing Cello Concerto in A minor by Saint-Saens, and we sent ...

Get outside input to identify your patterns
The only way I can write this is to tell myself I won't publish it. I don't even know how to write it. I know it's convoluted because the only person who could understand it on the first try is the criminal lawyer. When I moved to Pennsylvania with t...

Our happiness depends on the stories we tell ourselves

Is it okay if I don't want kids?
I see how it feels so easy to just say no to kids. Having kids is irrational. They do not make us happier. They disrupt the halcyon days of early marriage. And they cost a lot of money. Pretty much every twentysomething says, at some point, that they...

Meet the people who are best at meeting goals
I tell my husband tidbits about the kids because part of my strategy to get him to relocate to Swarthmore is to keep him feeling close to us. I tell him my younger son is winning more on his video game than ever before because the Internet we get fro...
