Minutes before we lit the candles: "Mom, if you were named Mary and I got born in a manger, would people call me Little Lord Teddy?" 😂😂 Happy Chanukah!!
On one of my favorite podcasts today....which we recorded two weeks early, in prime #thefifthtrimester style, because the cohost Sarah is due any second with her third 👶! 💛

How incredibly timely! Lauren Smith Brody, author of @thefifthtrimester is our guest on today’s podcast - all about maternity leave and the return to work! This was a much-requested topic and so timely for me as my leave starts next Monday ... at the latest depending on baby #3’s whims 😛👶. .
Lauren was so great to talk to and I am so looking forward to reading her book when I’m gearing up to return to work (in March!). Listen and definitely send in more follow up questions - I think we will do another leave/returning episode this spring! @lvanderkam @the_shubox

TFW you get teary when you're on stage doing an event with women who are true friends as well as colleagues so then you go stand in front of some wheat for a photo op. I met @devilandegg when we shared a cubicle wall at Glamour (and she "whispered" on the phone about being pregnant). The incomparably talented and kind @lizegan3 has squeezed my hand through all of the ups and downs of book publishing this year. And @bzalaznick is the woman I want to be one day -- she pulled us all together to talk books, babies, brisket, and bad dogs (totally stealing that from you, Caroline!).
Once a year, we get to buy this sweetheart a $38 tuxedo on Amazon Prime and steal his salad course. 💛💛💛
This text just in from the babysitter: my boy and his sweet buddy in the school library. Swooning as I sit working in the grown-up @nysoclib library across town. 💛📚👬💛
Tonight, a special 11pm thank you to my mom, for this hand-me-down 80's belt which is solving everything for my day tomorrow of: NY Women's Bar Association #thefifthtrimester breakfast talk, jury duty, a big magazine story deadline, and fancy dinner out with my in-laws. Thank you also, Mom, for the wherewithal to take the damn the thing out an inch (and a half) because my waist will never be as small as yours. 😘 cc: @susansmith0224
So this just happened! 😃😃😃☺️ Thank you, @sarahluxlee !!!
Thinking of giving #thefifthtrimester as a holiday gift? Now 'til Dec 22: DM me a screenshot of your order/receipt and I'll mail you a personalized stick-on nameplate. 💛💛💛
🎉🎉🎉 book-a-day giveaway over at @doubledaybooks. This Jewish girl has always loved an advent calendar, but one with free books?! I swoon.

Baby's first plane ride six Thanksgivings ago. (This time around he complained about the "too loud" baby in front of us! Rude!)
