Today, when I drag two kids, a stroller, various backpacks and tote bags, water bottles, smooshy overripe bananas and Pirate’s Booty into my local Jewish Community Center for an afternoon of swimming and basketball, I will try not to feel as harried and disheveled as I know I appear.Instead, I will try to channel Natalie Portman, who also, it turns out, takes her offspring to the JCC. The Israeli-born actress was spotted on Monday at the Jewish Community Center in Los Feliz  with 22-month-old son Aleph, looking like just like regular moms everywhere. Just, well, a lot better.
