F* It

What are the guidelines on emotional support pets? Because this has my head spinning. Like, is that a thing? And how, exactly, does it work? You bought an airplane ticket for your peacock. I’m not an ornithologist but I don’t think a peacock is going to fit in one airplane seat. Jesus, I can barely […]

I am basically paralyzed by the thoughts of preparing for the future. Not necessarily my future – because, well, let’s get real – but my kids’ future. The running list of questions and considerations I have created is beyond manageable. In fact, it’s fucking absurd. But every item on the list feels completely necessary and […]

Right after I had Abbott, 18 months to the day after Matty was born, I knew I had to do something before I became the crazy baby lady. Of course, at six weeks postpartum, it would have been nice if there was something my husband could do to temporarily prevent him from being able to […]

It’s Monday and I have so many things I want to write about but everything pales in comparison to last night’s Golden Globes. I’m not a movie buff and I’m really not that big into celebrities or stars (unless they’re Beyonce or, thanks for reminding me Golden Globes, Oprah), so I wasn’t even going to […]

It’s finally December! Seth and I have been busy preparing for what is expected to be our most exciting Christmas with the boys yet. With a basically-two-year old and a full-fledged threenager, Santa has been a hot topic around here and you better believe Seth’s been taking full advantage of Santa’s ‘existence’ each night at […]

This morning we all woke up 30 minutes before we needed to leave the house to be on time to work – me by foot, Seth dropping off the kids in between home and work. In an ideal world, 30 minutes would have been plenty of time for all of us to get ready, dressed […]

It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving if I didn’t take a minute to acknowledge what I’m grateful for, at least once. So, let’s just cut to it because I’ve got a lot to be thankful for. I know, 2017 was a rough one for most of us but still, guys, we have a lot to be thankful […]
