Rebecca is a wife and mother of four (bli ayin hara). She holds an MA in Applied Anthropology and taught six
years in L.A. elementary schools. When she realized her salary was
just about paying for the nanny and a lot of kosher
take-out, she abandoned both roles to be a full-time
homemaker. When not folding laundry, cooking, playing tea party, or
wiping tushies, Rebecca dabbles at writing. Her first book is
A Dozen Daisies for Raizy (Hachai 2008), and she has
also penned stories for local (L.A.) magazines Jewish Life and
CitySpirit. Rebecca's fiction has appeared in Mishpacha Junior and Aim magazines.

Sometimes even Mommies
have bad days

If you have ever read the book Alexander and the Terrible,
Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day
, you may remember the page.
Alexander finally adjourns to bed at the end of his terrible,
horrible, no-good, very bad day. He sounds resigned, yet also
comforted. Why? Because his mother has just informed him that “some
days are just like that.”

Go with the Flow
When planning outings for your children, you can be sure that at
least one thing will not go as planned. Usually, it’s something
small: a sippy cup left on the kitchen table, one too few diapers
in the diaper bag, a cellphone forgotten at home. These
misadventures—and how you handle them—can teach your children more
