I’m officially another year older! And for being such a boring number, I’m really excited about 34. 33 was a weird year. I think I’ll mostly remember it for all of the aging that occurred. You should see the grays I have to show for it; now, that would be a ‘before and after’ to […]

When we had our boys, my husband and I weren’t married, we had no plans of getting married and I had ZERO desire to ever change my name. To be honest, I have never – at any stage in my life – looked ahead and envisioned myself ever changing my name. It just wasn’t something, […]

This week my brain has been B U S Y and on topics across the emotional spectrum. Doritos. Everyone was talking about it, one of my friends was really into them but quieter, smaller bags of Doritos for women? IS IT JUST ME OR DOES THAT SEEM COUNTERPRODUCTIVE TO WHAT WE’RE TRYING TO DO HERE, […]

I have a comondrum (that’s obviously what a conundrum on a Monday is called). Every now and then my kids will walk into a room where I am or they’ll pop up next to me on the couch or resurface from the far corners of Target with their dad and I’ll say, “Hey, girl!” It’s […]

You guys, is being a middle-aged mom weird or is it just me? I’m being completely serious. I’m somewhere between coming to terms with my constantly unhappy body (aka age) and my terrible sleep “patterns” (aka parenthood) and wishing I could just have one more moment to relish in the freedom that is (was) being […]

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 […]
