  2. Anti-anxiety Pill

    Sunday, Jun 03rd, 2012 at 5:18pm

    My two kids and I are visiting my parents back east in New York City, where I grew up. Taking my five-year-old son, Sage, and nearly-two-year-old daughter, Annie, on the plane is no easy task. Their father had to stay home and work. Five and a half hours is a long time for them to sit in their seats. When we finally arrive and I put them to bed in my old room, I realize that single parenting is heroic. And it seems to me, untenable in the long run. My patience is wearing thin and my aging parents are less helpful than I imagined they’d be.
