Moms Who Drink And Swear™ is not a blog about parenting or drinking or swearing. Well, maybe a little bit. My blog is complicatedly simple. I offer unapologetic, dazzling, chaotic words and ideas delivered in a profanity laced, grammatically incorrect blob of deep and feely common sense.
My name is Nikki. I swear a lot and drink a little. I am lactose intolerant. I love rules. I am a clinical psychotherapist/writer and gerontologist. I use bad words to share good ideas. You can trust me because I am a professional. I am the creator, content curator, and primary writer of this blog and the Moms Who Drink And Swear Facebook page. I also co-write a blog on ChicagoNow, called Cradle to Grave Caregiving.
Some of the subjects and a LOT of the language here on my blog might make you feel uncomfortable and I'm comfortable with that. As a rule, one of the goals of this blog is to get you comfortable with being uncomfortable, because that's how humans grow and learn and keep from becoming ignorant, narrow-minded butt sniffers, and maybe it's selfish, but I want the world I live in a world where I don't have to have to worry about having some dumb asses nose all up in my cheeks. AMIRIGHT?
I am gently and consistently offensive, but tenderhearted! I mean no harm, but that doesn't mean you won't be harmed by something I write, however, since I'm only responsible for what I write, not what you understand or how you interpret what I write, harm is a subjective term, so you could feel harmed, even though I told you that I mean no harm.
That is as close as I'll ever get to apologizing for anything you find on this blog or on any of my social media platforms.
In 2008, I created a misfit Facebook group Moms Who Drink And Swear. And then I started a blog. And then I wrote a book based on the blog. I told you that already right? But maybe you forgot so... Moms Who Drink And Swear: True Tales of Loving My Kids Whle Losing My Mind, which was published by Penguin (NAL) in 2013. You should totally buy it. It's a best seller!
NO! I don't accept sponsored posts or advertising on this blog.
NO! I don't accept free stuff in exchange for writing about it.
NO! I don't accept unsolicited offers to guest post on my blog.
YES! I DO so LOVE a good personal email, you know, when people reach out to say, "Sup?" You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
OMG YOU HAVE TO BUY MY BOOK. THANK YOU.
