Motherhood is Hard. It’s Okay to Say So.

A friend of mine often jokes that, as moms, we’re invisible. We’re at the grocery store. We’re at home making dinner. We’re in the office at school turning in forms. We’re at work, toting breast pumps and brushing off an applesauce stain on our dress. We aren’t turning any heads. We’re barely getting noticed. We […]

Nominating Myself for Mom-of-the-Year

Almost 2 years have passed since my daughter, Charlotte, broke her leg. The accident isn’t something I like to talk about, but I’m reminded of it daily. The hot pink cast went all the way up to her thigh and got remarks of sympathy and awe everywhere we went. It’s like the scarlet letter she wore, […]

The F Words of (Step) Parenting

My step-son just left from spending his Winter break with us. Two and half weeks away from his school in Arizona and it was its typical roller coaster. We had the “Who are you again?” phase, which climbed quickly into the “How much can I get away with?” phase. It eventually evened out to be […]

Today, I Should Have Been Fired

I should’ve been fired today. To start with, I woke up late because I’ve gotten in the habit of hitting the snooze button. My three-year-old is convinced that there’s monsters in her room, and likes to inform of us of their whereabouts every 2-3 hours throughout the night. This meant that I was five-snooze-buttons-tired, rather […]

Business Travel and Single Parenting: How Not To Lose Your Mind

Working mom, check. Two young children, check. Little dog, check. Involved and helpful co-parent, check. Except for, you know, two weeks a month.  I am part of the lucky crew of moms whose partner, in this case my husband, travels regularly for work.

Going against the Grain: Saying No to Social Media

Full disclaimer: I’m a glutton for social media. I have been since I started using Facebook my freshman year of college (gasp! 12 years ago!). I am guilty of posting selfies, pictures of my food, many, many pictures of my dog, and the mundane tasks of my life. Each of these areas (and then some) […]
