This morning Matty refused to wear the red striped shirt because he wanted to wear a shark shirt – a shark shirt?! Dude. How does he know that somewhere in our house there is a shark shirt? Is there a shark shirt? Which shark shirt? Sharks. Sharks?! Where did my baby go? 5 minutes later he refused to […]

As you know, Father’s Day is this weekend and I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank all the dads, but specifically the ones who didn’t have to be. Don’t get me wrong, I am 100% thankful for ALL the dads out there but my first-hand experience isn’t that of a daughter born to a man who […]

This morning Matty woke up with an unidentified rash and – turns out – he has strep. So we’re home today – eating dino nuggets, watching Minions and trying to stay cool (aka keep our collective sanity). While it stinks that Matty’s sick, I think it’s sort of a blessing in disguise because we don’t get a lot […]

Buzzed buddies was a weekly series where I hand over the reigns to Seth, he or a guest gets comfortably inebriated and write a guest post on any chosen topic. Seth loves whiskey, short walks to the park, our boys, his friends and cinema (his wording not mine). His opinions are his own and I’m not allowed to edit […]

1972… Today, 44 years later… There’s no other way to describe how I’m doing today other than to say I’m struggling.

Ok, so I was going back and forth on whether all of my rage and disappointment in society stemming from Brock “Dickhole” Turner’s rape case was worth writing about because I’m guessing everyone else has covered my thoughts. But then I read this really cute letter to the judge from his friend Leslie Rasmussen and I […]

Yesterday I had a revelation that I’m scared shitless of the car repair shop – mainly because I’m so inept when it comes to mechanics, it’s like being teleported to a different planet. I had this revelation as I was standing in a shop, 8 inches from a mechanic named Randy. Randy was, as most […]

Like the overly eager parent I am, I peer pressured Seth into letting us take the boys to the Henry Doorly Zoo on Monday. In case you’re wondering, the weather was beautiful (it was definitely a beach day). And in case you don’t remember, it was Memorial Day. So, no, it wasn’t busy at all (HAHAHAHAHA). The […]
