Single Parent Superhero

Single Parent Superhero
Last week I had the pleasure of being all alone. For an entire week. With a two year old. Yeah, I know. I had you there for a minute. All jealous and shit. My partner went on a fishing trip to Canada with his buddies. My girlfriends and I made the joke that I was... Read more »

A tribute to Robin Williams from a once depressed mom

A tribute to Robin Williams from a once depressed mom
Another tribute. I know. You’ve read a million. Mine isn’t any different. Robin Williams dead at 63. Suicide. My heart breaks. I read something yesterday on Facebook that truly upset me. An acquaintance of a friend wrote “It’s amazing how someone with so much could off himself. If you are depressed get help. You have... Read more »

Hands down, hand me downs rock!

Hands down, hand me downs rock!
When I was a kid, I hated “hand me downs”. You know, the clothes and toys you received from an older sibling or family member. Stuff they grew out of. Stuff they were no longer playing with. Used stuff. Although my mom bought us new clothes when we needed them, we were always given my... Read more »

Facebook, we need a break

Facebook, we need a break
I’m thinking it’s time. Time for a break. Not necessarily a break up. But a break. Like Ross and Rachel. Facebook, we need a break. It’s not that I don’t love you. But I’m tired. Tired of the crap.

The day I received a hate letter

The day I received a hate letter
Long before I started blogging I was already receiving hate mail. They say you’ve made it into the blogging world when you piss someone off enough to receive hateful emails, Facebook responses, and Tweets. But what happens when you are just a regular person who had a baby and receive a hate letter? You cry.... Read more »

Can we please stop talking about breastfeeding

Can we please stop talking about breastfeeding
I’m going to just get right down to it. Breastfeed, don’t breastfeed, but for heaven’s sake can we please stop talking about breastfeeding? And blaming things on breastfeeding? It seems the whole world is talking about it. Little known fact, breastfeeding has been going on for centuries. It’s not new. Not even a little. Why... Read more »

Let's take an infant to a concert and other selfish parenting moves

Let's take an infant to a concert and other selfish parenting moves
First off, none of us are perfect parents. None. Of. Us. Nope, not you. Not me. Really, you’re not. Stop acting. But, we are all taught a level of common sense. We are born with a brain. They are made to think, to process. So, when it comes to our kids, why aren’t we using... Read more »
