  • Lisa Miller: We all need some magic in our lives

    A year ago, my 4-year-old daughter, Allie, was obsessed with trains. Now, she clomps around the house in plastic high heels every day, usually wearing a satiny pink skirt and matching top, white gloves and a tiny pink hair clip stuck arbitrarily on top of her head.

  • Culling keepsakes to move on

    I was cleaning out closets and drawers, in search of items for this weekend’s Grand & Glorious Garage Sale. Allie’s nursery school needed donations, and I was sure I could come up with plenty of things we no longer needed and didn’t want.

    We are snuggled up in the Dora bed, deciding on a bedtime story. "How about your special book?" Allie asks. It's late and the story is long, but I can't say no.

  • The Heelys craze calls for balance

    There is no way I could walk a mile in my daughter’s shoes. Like millions of kids around the world, she is addicted to Heelys, the hybrid skate-sneakers with a removable wheel in each heel.
