1972… Today, 44 years later… There’s no other way to describe how I’m doing today other than to say I’m struggling. Over the weekend, the biggest terror attack inside the U.S. since 9/11 AND the deadliest hate crime against a gay target in American history, rolled into one, took place. Orlando, my heart, my prayers, my […]

The last two days around here have been pretty eventful and by “eventful” I mean mostly in mom ways. Monday evening Abbott started developing a cough – it was dry and infrequent so I sort of chalked it up to…being a baby and developing immunities? He slept okay – not his best – but he still […]

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 […]

Like the overly eager parent I am, I peer pressured Seth into letting us take the boys to the Henry Doorly Zoo on Monday.

I’ve often found myself wondering why both of my kids are boys. Not that I don’t love having two boys but I’m one of those super annoying people who believes everything happens for a reason, and so I find myself wondering (more than you’d think) why I had boys. During my first pregnancy I really, […]

I have a comondrum (that’s obviously what a conundrum on a Monday is called) and I’m not an idiot, I get that science is actually really awesome but also, seriously, what is up with science’s obsession with breakfast? As we all know, you’re NEVER supposed to skip breakfast if you don’t want to be fat. That’s […]
