The Epic Search For Your Child’s Favorite

It’s approaching your baby’s bedtime. Before the confetti drops and you and your husband kick back to watch one of the many shows you’re probably seasons behind on, you need to get that kid to sleep. So Operation Subdue The Spawn commences. You get him fed, changed and dress him in his favorite fuzzy PJs. […]

Why is it so hard to keep clothes on my kid?

I’ve entered a new era with my 3 year old daughter. She thinks running around naked is hysterical. No, not just at home. At dance, during her Little Gym class and sometimes at other people’s homes. I’ve been successful thus far at keeping her clothed at most other public places. Although, I did see her […]

What’s in my diaper bag

For longer than I care to admit, I was a tabloid junkie.  I would stand in the line for the cashier at the grocery store and peruse for the most attention-grabbing headline regarding whichever celebrity’s divorce or pregnancy or affair or nervous breakdown or freshly bleached bunghole.  I would read about it being news that […]

Closing Time

Ah, chores. Is there anything worse than realizing you got the kids to bed but your day isn’t over yet. In fact, you’re just starting the closing procedures. Like that of a restaurant turning it’s open sign to closed for the night. You look at the house and it’s like a toy explosion met a […]

Breaking from the 9 to 5

For much of my adolescence, I spent weeknight dinners and weekends with my mother, father, and sister. It gave a feeling of consistency and solidity knowing most nights the whole family would be home, gathered around the table, talking about how the kid next door is a future criminal or how the assistant principal is […]

Pregnancy after prematurity

My first pregnancy, I made it to 32 weeks and 4 days before everything unraveled.  A normal day gave way to seizures, dangerously high blood pressure, extremely low blood platelets, and the premature delivery of my son nearly 8 weeks early with little to no memory of what happened.   With an invaluable amount of therapy […]

When Your Friend Is Pregnant With Her First Child And Is “Totally Prepared”

You sit down with your friend who’s 7 months pregnant. She’s glowing and beautiful wearing clean clothes, beautiful hair that’s neatly arranged and makeup perfectly on. You can’t help but think she’s the “before” picture and you are most certainly the “after” picture. You glance down at your tank top that’s covered in, well actually, […]

I Can Now Say I’ve Walked Through Hell and Survived.  

My daughter just had diarrhea while wearing undies and pants and didn’t tell me.  She then took off her pants and undies and got it all over her legs, arms and hands.  Not to mention all over the floor. At first I started to run away because…well obviously I don’t need to explain why I […]

The Common Cold: A Horror Story

I’m a huge fan of horror movies but I am quick to discount ones that just use blood and gore to cause fear. The good ones?  They are the ones that build a sense of dread you can feel deep down in the pit of your stomach. What rivals that particular brand of dread?  The […]

The Day I Called 911 On The Moon

I was 9 months pregnant, and besides being insanely uncomfortable, I was also in the midst of the absent-minded last few weeks of my pregnancy.   That night, I went to bed early.  I took my contacts out and put on my horribly “out-of-date prescription” glasses on.  As I laid down and tried to uncomfortably […]
