Jessie Van Arman  LA. NY. Places in between. City dweller. Yoga lover. Party starter. Event marketer @facebook. Admirer of things that shine. Mama to #AveryBear.

There is an alternative, subterranean universe in which parents must endure hours of buses & trains, small children may drive oversize vehicles & none of us are safe. This place exists in Brooklyn, NY.

Darius, Avery & I have discussed & we believe you're a superlative embodiment of fatherhood. You have been making terrible dad jokes since the beginning of time. You're a natural with Legos. And you are above average in sneaking an assortment of things you shouldn't when mom's not looking (but really she's *always* looking & no one should forget that). Basically, you were born for this. We love you dearly. Happy father's day to our one & only, @dariusjagjag.

I've done the calculations & figured out that I need to endure 2 giant poops, at least 3 public meltdowns, & several days of objections to anything reasonable in order to get one brief moment like this. Seems like fair math. #averybear #brooklynbaby

We're not really the go somewhere fancy for Memorial Day weekend type people. But we make our own fun. #averybear #brooklynbaby .

Being 2 people's favorite human--in addition to having a full time job, household duties, & the general responsibility of adulting--is not an insignificant burden. But Darius carries the weight of our adoration with grace. Happy birthday to our one & only favorite everything. We love you. xo * Jessie & Avery

That awkward Saturday I let my husband & son leave the house dressed like twin 4th of July fanatics. #averybear #brooklynbaby #usa

This boy & music class: the greatest love story ever told. #averybear #brooklynbaby @songsforseeds_clintonhill

The US is in fine hands with this team. #facebookfacetoface

Circumstances kept me home on Friday, partner's been gone all weekend, & I've had the most spectacular 3 days together with my boo. #somuchpeekaboo #toddlergonewild #averybear #brooklynbaby #clintonhill

Despite the overwhelming evidence of frowns all around, these are indeed my funny Valentines. #averybear #brooklynbaby @thecoopschool

These legends came to visit me for lunch today. And eating with legends is always better than eating alone. (Disclaimer: one of the legends is the author of this post's husband & so assessment of his legend status may be biased.) #lunchbreak #bringyourhusbandtoworkday

Before I put the jingle part of this musical instrument back in my mouth and run around stealing toys like I own the place, I'll pause so you can capture this photo of me looking, for a moment, like we are both calm & under control.
