It’s Halloween weekend! We’ve spent most of our nights this week after the boys have gone to bed finishing our costumes but there are still a few finishing pieces I still have to put together. We’re doing a family costume and I’d tell you what it is but that would just spoil the surprise. We’re […]

Today, Abbott woke me and Seth up at 5am demanding we give him a banana. I wish I could say this is the first time he’s done this but the truth is we’re really on an early-morning, banana-demanding streak. For the past two months (at least), he’s been waking up anywhere between the hours of […]

Last week I wrote a piece that I later, after a lot of deliberation, decided not to publish. It was based on an argument Seth and I got into last week over a news story about ESPN’s sports analyst Sam Ponder and ESPN’s new partner, Barstool Sports. For those who don’t know, Sam Ponder – up […]

Today has already been one of those days, and it’s hardly even begun. I’ve been up for, like, an entire day already. And I realize for some people waking up at 3:45am might be typical but the only times I’ve ever been up at 4am are child related, travel related or party related. I think […]

Being a dedicated mom is work. Before reading any further, please note the period. As I prepare to return to the working world, contemplating how I will “account” for the six-month hole in my resume, I find myself struggling with the notion that somehow, somefuckinghow, being a mom isn’t enough. Everyone knows it’s considered highly […]

Well, it finally happened. I’m going back to work next week. I’m excited to get back into a routine that is steady but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t already overwhelmed with the changes. It’s funny how life works, I suppose; just when I was beginning to realize how much I enjoyed spending […]

Last week I was checking my Abbott and June emails (which I hardly ever do) and saw I had missed an email from a girl at some social media startup platform. The email said she had come across Abbott and June’s Instagram account, thought it looked like a great fit for their beta and was […]

Does anyone know the odds of a one-year old getting possessed by a demon? It seems like the odds would be pretty low but based on my experience with Abbott last night, I’m wondering if maybe it’s more common than I think. Last night at about 11:30 we heard screaming come from the boys’ room. […]
