“IT’S GOOD TO BE KING” is a common refrain in my home, and it’s always in reference to my 5-year-old son, who, we joke, gets the royal treatment. My husband and I strive to teach him daily to make his bed and pick out his own clothes (and preferably put them on in less time than it takes to bake a loaf of bread), but naturally he needs a lot of help. He’s little and learning, so as parents we cook for him, clean for him, and make sure he’s filling up on fruits and vegetables, and forgoing too much sugar and screen time. We see to it that he gets to bed early, and rises to a healthy breakfast and enough runway to land a (relatively) stress-free, on-time arrival…

ON THE ROAD NO SKIS NEEDED Imagine zooming over a pristine, powdery crevasse at up to 28 miles per hour without clicking into a single boot or binding.

objects of affection

SO MANY POEMS, PLAYS, AND SONGS have been written about Valentine’s Day. Geoffrey Chaucer connected the day to the mating of birds in early spring. Shakespeare referenced it in Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. And in the 18th century, the nursery rhyme “The Valentine” was first published in Gammer Gurton’s Garland, inspiring endless variations on its opening lines: “The rose is red, the violet’s blue, the honey’s sweet, and so are you.” For me, the day has always been an opportunity to express love and close friendship. I craft homemade presents for those dearest to me, and send cards to friends and relatives—and even a few flirtatious ones for a little fun. This year, I gave something extra-special to my grandson, Truman; my granddaughter, Jude; my daughter, Alexis; and my…

The Beats Go On What makes these hearts so awesome? They have two chambers of surprise treats inside! Fill a pair of reusable Easter eggs with mini toys or candy. Stick them together with a dot of hot glue, wrap crepe paper around them a few times, and tuck a V of rolled-up crepe paper into the bottom for the point.
