The Kid-dish: Not this week, guys


I’m sorry to tell  you that our trusty Kid-dish author Molly Tolsky is busy sunning herself in Florida (also known as being on vacation). In her stead it is my responsibility to bring you all the Jewish parenting gossip you never wanted to know. But after 30 minutes of googling things like “Is Elsay Pataky Jewish?” I’m giving up.

So, if your’re wondering what DIY project Tori Spelling’s kids are doing this week or what Sarah Jessica Parker’s twins are wearing to school, check back next week when our Jewish celeb expert has her tuchus back in the office.
