I’ve always loved to laugh, especially at the expense of others. I guess this doesn’t put me at the head of the list for the Nobel Peace Prize, but at least I’m honest about it. I was always a bigger fan of America’s Funniest Home Videos than I was of Gray’s Anatomy. Sometime during adulthood, […]
This may have actually been the longest month ever. That’s why it’s been a month since Five Things Friday was last on the blog. Because all the days are just melding into one and I’m pretty sure this month is never going to end. It’s an interesting thing, blogging. Those of you who’ve been around from the beginning […]
As I look into the mirror and examine myself at too-close a distance, I can’t help but see the small changes that have been slowly taking over my body. Sometimes, I can fool myself into believing that I’m the same woman I was 20 years ago. Most of the time, though, those tiny changes scream […]
I’m lucky enough to do this whole writing thing as a day job, and one of my favourite places to write for these days is Romper.

I have, in the past, made my feelings known about Caillou. This is not exactly an unpopular opinion, amongst parents. Most people agree that the little fucker is whiny, demanding and sets a pretty awful example for our kids. Hell, the Fournado learned the word “stupid” from watching the show. Thanks, Caillou. I’m not here today […]
It can be really hard to find time to write here, these days, because of all of my other writing gigs. Y’know, the ones that actually pay. Did you know I write for Romper, a fantastic site for Millennial moms, 3 days a week? If you’re thinking to yourself, “Wow, I didn’t know she was […]
I’m not a winter person. I’m even LESS of a winter person when I’m struggling with pneumonia. Being a parent with all of these things happening can suck.
