One of the most-asked questions I field via Instagram is how I dress my children so nicely in the face of all of the laundering, stain removal, and ironing it must entail

The truth is that my children also wear a lot of easy-to-care-for cotton separates like peter pan collar dresses from Busy Bees and Luigi for Emory and jeans with long-sleeved polos and printed turtlenecks for Hill, but I do spend a lot of time tending to their dressier clothes.

Often when faced with a challenge, I think back to my childhood in Brooklyn. When I was little, my grandma didn’t have a washer or drier. Although she could have used my mom’s washer or the laundromat at the corner, Grandma wanted no part of that. She did her laundry by hand with a washboard in her big double sink.

My Latest Snag: Fabric Face Masks

What an odd time in our lives, but I have been shopping for reusable fabric face masks for my family as New Yorkers are now required to wear them in public when social distancing is not possible.
