It was about a year and a half ago. And I never wrote about it because I felt so awful and embarrassed. But with a little distance, it feels more like a parental rite of passage. Everyone has at least one story.
Coughing and Sneezing in Mexico
All last week, I was feeling great. New York was freezing, but we were gearing up for spring break vacation.
My Kids Don’t Know about School Shootings Yet
