Acting Like A Child With A Child on the Way

0 Written by: | Friday, Apr 18, 2014 12:00pm

Dear Whit,

This whole situation is driving me crazy! My husband and I have two kids and are expecting a third —all of the same gender. When we found out about the gender of the new one, my husband was disappointed and stopped being excited about the pregnancy. Before that he was always making sure that I was comfortable and well rested, etc. But now he doesn’t seem to care about me, or the expected baby. He even told me that he feels “less of a man” now that we know what the gender is going to be. Can you believe that? I don’t have the slightest idea about how to deal with this because it is so completely ridiculous! What do you think I should do?

Can’t Deal

Dear Can’t:

You can tell him that feeling like “less of a man” makes sense given how he’s acting. Tell him he looks and sounds like the little birthday boy at his party who pouts when he discovers that he didn’t get the present he wanted. Read More →

catch of the day fish (2)It seems like only yesterday we were cheering the Ravens on to a Super Bowl victory and parading in the streets for weeks afterward, celebrating our city’s triumph. Since then, another football season has come and gone, but our pride and love for the Ravens is, of course, always there. This weekend, you can get a little football fix at the Spring Football Festival being held at McHenry Row this Saturday afternoon. Read More →

catch of the day fish (2)World Book Night Pre-Party at Atomic Books

Those book worms over at Atomic Books in Hampden really know how to party. As participants in World Book Night 2014, they’re hosting a pre-World Book Night  party this evening, to celebrate this latest tradition that helps to spread the joy of reading. World Book Night gets some of the best new books off of the shelves and into the hands of people who usually have little access to books because of means or geography. And with great folks like those at Atomic Books getting on board and hosting the festivities, reading couldn’t look more appealing. Read More →

That Nature Show

Dandelions: From Nuisance in Your Garden to Meal On Your Plate

Dandelion Greens - Don't they look delicious?

Dandelion Greens – Don’t they look delicious?

This column, That Nature Show, is about the nature right under your nose: in our backyards, playgrounds and parks!  Stop and look around, you’ll be amazed at what surrounds you.

The Shake Shack  is opening here in 2015. I’m as excited as the next kid. I had a Shake Burger on the Upper West Side of Manhattan where my sister lives, where it is Breederville. It’s all moms with the $3 million strollers, and kids in Vuitton, but the playing field was leveled: we were eating the same greasy burgers!  And I felt proud that I was going home to Maryland where  day care costs more than college.  At least back at home I can forage for dandelion greens in my backyard to save money.  Read More →

What I learned from Miley Cyrus

Teen girl fans at the Miley Cyrus concert in DC

Jane and Lily

Last week I saw Miley Cyrus in concert at the Verizon Center in DC and what a crash course in modern culture it was. Wake up, Marion Winik, it is 2014 and WE ARE GOING ALL IN!

Having begun my own concert-going career in the 1970s, when a show consisted of a bunch of guys in blue jeans and t-shirts playing guitars under flashing purple lights, and not having kept up closely with the pop extravaganza developments of Gaga & Co., I spent much of the evening with my jaw literally hanging open. Though I doubt I can come up with any better phrase than did Washington Post music critic Chris Richards — “Twerk du Soleil” — let me tell you about my night with the lovely and talented badass, Ms. Destiny Hope Cyrus, aka Miley. (Billy Ray, what were you thinking?) Read More →
