This school year was supposed to be easier, but it’s not

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’m a socially awkward mom

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 let my three-year-old have candy and soda for breakfast

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!

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

Being a stay-at-home parent has me missing work (almost)

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)

Mom-venting: It Just Feels Better

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

Is Your Child’s Daycare/Day Camp Safe?

I just read this story on Scary Mommy about a child who lost her life at a summer camp, and what her parents wish they had known/thought of beforehand. While the story was tragic, terrifying, and incredibly sad, it highlights some VERY important truths you may not realize about camps (and daycare facilities, really). You…… Continue reading Is Your Child’s Daycare/Day Camp Safe?
