the way life should be

so as all parents know, vacation with a toddler isn't really a relaxing break. it's kinda like life lived in extremes. you get the very very good—seeing best friends! going to the beach! lobster and steamers and whoopie pie! four square! fun wedding!—alongside the very very bad—off schedule! sleeping in odd places! subsequent screaming fits!

i have to give the litle man credit, he really mostly kicked ass. there was just one really bad day with much wailing and lamenting. and unfortunately with me, this day landed on the day that we were spending with my in-laws. sigh.

i'm kinda braindead from the 95˚ and the hunidity, so i'll just hit you with the highlights:

Four square was huge in my elementary school. Beautiful beach!

I am a reporter for amNewYork newspaper profiling Clinton Hill. I'm looking for someone to talk to about the quality of schools in the neighborhood. Are they improving, etc?

Please contact me for an interview or put me in touch with the right person (a community group/active parent, etc.). I'm trying to get in touch with someone today or this weekend if possible.
