Pilgrims, pumpkins and holly jolly. For that brief moment, the first snow stopped meaning wet shoes, messy floors and runny noses and instead I allowed myself to see it through my children's eyes. To the kids the first snow meant surprise, smiles, imagination and bright-eyed wonder.

One sunny August afternoon, my younger son and I walked to the post office and mailed out 200 bar mitzvah invitations.

Naturally, this new relationship is causing me to think of all sorts of questions: "What are things that my daughter will say and do that will crack me up? What challenges will she face in life? Will I have any chance of keeping it together when she becomes bat mitzvah?"

Call Parents 'Mom' or 'Dad.' Period.

It's time to get rid of phrases such as, "stay-at-home dad" and "working mother." As gender roles have expanded, these expressions, and the ideas behind them, confine, more than define, the complex lives of today's parents. The words mom and dad -- or variations thereof -- are all we need.

Just over a month ago, my oldest child left home for his freshman year of college. My husband drove him the four and a half hours it takes to get to Boston from our house. Since I had already visited the university twice -- and knew I'd find it tough to keep my emotions in check-- I didn't go. Instead, I cried.
