This morning was a rough one in our house, not really because anything big happened but simply because we’re in a particularly inconsistent phase of our lives. With a baby and an almost-two-year-old toddler, mornings can be especially challenging because nights can be especially terrifying. Last night was one of those nights. Matty is prone to night terrors and […]

It’s Friday. The weather (here) is perfect. We’ve got new music from Justin (the Justin). Life is pretty good, right? So, make the most out of your weekend – make it count. Have a really great Mother’s Day – if you’re a mom, I hope you’re spoiled (or you take time to spoil yourself). If you’re […]

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and all I can think about is how grateful I am to be one. I know the holiday is about moms and that my kids don’t really have a choice to keep me — because they’re stuck with me — but I’m so grateful. Regardless of how much work it is […]

I once got into a huge fight with Seth when I was pregnant with Matty about whether or not Matty (who in this hypothetical situation was a Lebron-level basketball player) would go to college or go straight into the NBA. I, of course, said there was no way he would ever skip college. Seth, of […]

There was an essay written at the start of the year, published here, and it’s sparked a bunch of individuals from all over the country to write their own mini essays recalling the moments they became adults. I’ve read plenty of them and have yet to determine whether or not I consider myself an adult. […]

Long ago, in a time far away from now my much cooler self created a playlist as an ode to Summer. This morning I played that playlist and this (song?) came on. It’s Thursday so it seemed appropriate to share but also, being much wiser now, I can attest that it’s still pretty sound advice. Flashback to the […]

Yesterday morning while I was getting ready I had the Today Show on in the background. They had a small segment on mom-shaming and, of course, I had to know what they were talking about. It wasn’t anything I haven’t already talked about (here or here) but the topic was getting a little attention after the internet […]

As promised yesterday, I’m going to be the good Beyoncé fan I am and talk about Lemonade. First things first. HOLY FUCK. That visual album was a complete mind fuck. Was it beautiful? Yes. Was it artistic? Yup. Is Bey still a BAMF? Obviously. Was it what I was expecting to see? Absolutely not. NO. Just, […]

I don’t have a comondrum to unload today because, in all honesty, I don’t have much going on today at all – mentally or emotionally. I actually woke up this morning relieved that it was Monday. (I know.) This weekend was one of those weekends but not because it was particularly packed with activities and I couldn’t catch […]

Music. Man, yesterday was rough. We lost a musical icon, a one-of-a-kind, a there-will-never-be-another. As the news broke yesterday and I secretly hoped it was someone else, I was sad but mostly in shock. We’ve lost so many legends in so little time. It didn’t really hit me until I picked the boys up from school, I was […]
