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 […]

On Sunday Bev finally decided to speak her truth about something near and dear to her, a touchy subject for a […]

I have a comondrum (that’s obviously what a conundrum on a Monday is called) and this one is legit. I actually need your help. There is one major goal of parenting and, as simple and maybe stupid as it may sound, that is to keep my kids alive. I would say that’s the bottom tier of […]

So, it’s FINALLY actually Friday. And I could not be happier! I saw something this morning that will definitely be the best thing you see all day and probably the best thing you’ll see all weekend. I laughed so hard. NeverEnding Story fans, we are forever indebted to Spotify for this artistic behind-the-scenes gem. Of […]

A couple weeks back, after much prodding on my part, our house become a device-free zone between the hours of 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm. We could use our phones to take photos or videos but we couldn’t filter/caption/share them until after 8pm. Other than that, no devices were allowed. In the beginning, the first night was not hard.

Tidbit – tid·bit – noun – A small and particularly interesting item of gossip or information. My Babe is Talking This week my 21 month old, AKA my 1.5 year old, started talking. And I’m not talking about words, I’m talking about conversations, understanding what I’m saying and formulating appropriate (and fucking adorable) responses. I’ve never spent much time […]
