IT’S HERE! The season that never stops giving is finally here. No, not the holiday season, cold and flu season! Our cold and flu season kicked off with the longest bout of congestion one could imagine followed up by a ruptured ear drum that bled and pussed and oozed golden wax for five days straight. […]

This morning while I was on my way out of the door, my three-year old grabbed a tangerine off of the tabletop and took it to my husband. I was busy putting the last items in my bag, ready to say my goodbyes and walk out the door when I heard my husband say, “Go […]

Am I the only one who feels like I’ve been celebrating Halloween for at least three weeks now? The boys’ Halloween parties, costume parade and trick-or-trunk are this afternoon and I would rather go to the dentist at this point than deal with my children and their Halloween costumes.

Awesome. For those who are unfamiliar, the test is supposed to identify your personal talents, the areas where […]

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 […]
