Once upon a time, I spent three hours in the emergency room, with my infant daughter, all because of a strand of hair. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, because I said it out loud, myself, AT LEAST six times while in the waiting area: How the hell did this happen? That evening, we were…… Continue reading A Strand of Hair Sent My Infant to the ER
My little girl is just two months old. Fair-skinned, deep blue eyes, and sometimes curly hair that I’m certain is turning a shade of strawberry blonde. She has chubby cheeks and pouty lips, and a birthmark that covers one eyelid almost entirely. She. Is. Stunning. I know every inch of her little face. Every crease…… Continue reading She Just Cries Harder
Today, I spent the better part of my morning making a meal plan and grocery list. It took a couple hours. Yes, hours. I start by checking which coupons, sales, and rebates are currently available. Then, I start making my lists, based on the best deals of the week. If it’s not an absolute necessity…… Continue reading Is it me, or is life expensive?
Today, to me, there is nothing political about this. This isn’t even about science. I don’t want to argue. I’m not here to moderate debates. It’s true – Somewhere in the back of my mind, I hold opinions too. They’re currently being stored in a file, under the name: “What’s It Matter, Anyway?” I. Am.…… Continue reading This school year was supposed to be easier, but it’s not
I like to think I’m an easy-going, friendly, maybe even charismatic person. I picture myself the life of the party: hair always on point, outgoing…an assertive trendsetter. Oh, and witty AF. I command a room. Truth be told – this is just me in my own brain. The way I see myself crushing it in…… Continue reading I’m a socially awkward mom
It’s 9am and my three-year-old just proudly finished a Milky Way and a cup of orange soda. I know, right? Mom. Of. The. YEAR! That kind of morning leniency usually only happens on Easter or the day after Halloween. But, hey, it’s a Friday and I’m fresh out of fucks for the week. Monday was…… Continue reading I let my three-year-old have candy and soda for breakfast
Dear 2021-2022 School Year, Please, don’t suck. OK, I know that’s a pretty broad request, and, let’s face it, 2020 didn’t set the bar real high. So, allow me to explain myself… First of all – our kids NEED to interact with other kids. Summer has been good and all…sports came back, so there was…… Continue reading Dear 2021-2022 School Year
I miss going to work. Ugh. There’s a statement I never thought I’d ever think, let alone say out loud. But, alas – it’s true. OK, I don’t miss having a job and all the bullshit that comes with being a working parent. The days of rushing to get the kids fed, dressed, and semi-happy…… Continue reading Being a stay-at-home parent has me missing work (almost)
I need to vent. I need to mom-vent. Is that a thing? A phrase people use? If they don’t, they totally should. Here’s the basic jist if what I consider a mom-vent: The people you love most are bound to drive you bat shit crazy sometimes. Airing that laundry just feels better. I LOVE MY…… Continue reading Mom-venting: It Just Feels Better
It’s 10am and I’m still in bed. I have a pillow between myself and the headboard, supporting my lower back. My legs are crossed underneath sheets that have been twisted every which way from a night spent tossing and turning. There’s a U-shaped pillow resting on top of my legs. It fits perfectly around my…… Continue reading Baby Number Four: What’s One More?
