It’s the long weekend, here in Canada. Victoria Day weekend, or May 2-4. Yay! This means two things for us, here: we are getting mighty close to my birthday (sometimes my birthday actually falls on this weekend, which is kind of awesome), so cake and parties are a big topic of conversation; and it’s generally […]
Wednesdays are generally a special day for the Husband and Threenager. They go to this outdoor education program called the p.i.n.e. project, which emphasizes stewardship of nature and the environment, while learning about and experiencing the outdoors, for both children and adults. The Husband feels passionately about going, and it’s been incredible to see the […]
Baby C is getting closer and closer to hitting his first birthday. I can’t believe it, and because I know this is my last child, I’m feeling a little bittersweet. There are plenty of things I know I will not miss about the baby stage, but when I stop to think about them, I have […]

I have been MIA compared to my normal posting schedule, haven’t I? Apologies, ladies and gents, but it’s for good reason. I have had two big posts go live on Scary Mommy this week! I’m so excited, as the first one has gone viral (almost 90K shares) and the second one has a message that […]
Hey guys! I’m so excited to announce a few sites that are publishing some original stories of mine this week! The first one is at xoJane and is kind of a story about the reason I named my blog what I did. It’s called “Why I Refer to My Children as Little Assholes.” Please go […]
When I refer to my kids as little assholes, I have always kind of excluded baby C, for the most part. He is, after all a baby. Most of the things he does that are aggravating (like shitty breastfeeding, for example) are not his fault. He’s just doing his baby thing in the best way […]
