A conversation with Baby Sideburns and Moms Who Drink And Swear

Here on ChicagoNow, we have some talented motherfuckers, like me. Smug much? Hells yes. Blogging is the one thing I do well. But I digress. I try to read as many ChicagoNow blogs as I can. I want to support my community, sure, but really my reason for reading so many blogs is selfish. The... Read more »

An Open Letter to The Voices

I was thinking about my own blog and I do believe that some of my old posts could be construed as oddly formatted open letters. Were some of my open letter-type posts obvious to others, even if I didn’t see them as such? For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about or... Read more »

Win a copy of the new book - Moms Who Drink And Swear: True Tales of Loving My Kids While Losing My Mind

It’s all fun and games until it’s not all fun and games. Do you see where I’m going with this? No? Do you look like this right now? Let me explain. It’s my way of saying that writing a blog and peeling off pithy, off color rants on Facebook and Twitter (I am @queenofcussin and... Read more »

You win some, you lose some

This is me this morning. I has a big saaaaaaaaad face to go with the glob of toothpaste on my chin (that is not doing anything to help dry up the PILES of acne clusters popping up all around my wrinkly face). Sad? Yes. Sad. I. have. failed. Muchos sickos has been the theme here... Read more »

This blog has no title because it's a hot mess of random emotional weirdness

A Spoonful of Hyperbole helps the guilt go away

The photo below is proof that I should try harder to accept the reality that I can no longer go without wearing an over the shoulder boulder holder when I go out in public. It’s a good thing my chubby tummy made a nice shelf for my boobies, because it was raining and I wasn’t... Read more »

Don't slaughter the messenger: Moms (and dad) bloggers discuss having it all

For some people, name dropping is saying things like, “So the other day, me and Beyonce were laughing about….” OR “Oh, so I forgot to tell you that I bumped into Michelle Obama when I was at The White House and….” OR “When I was at Whole Foods the yesterday buying organic lemon grass juice...

Agree to Disagree - even if you'd rather punch the person in the throat

My mother turns 70 today. YES! Yes, yes, yes! I love that I am lucky enough to still have a parent living. And this idea makes me say, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO – there is just no WAY- my mom can be 70! If she is 70, how can I still be in my 20’s with my whole... Read more »

Mommy Blogger? I've been called worse.

Why didn’t you post a blog on Mother’s Day? I received emails and messages asking why I didn’t post on the day of all days for the Mom Blogger. And a few messages apologized for calling me a “Mommy Blogger.” WHAT THE WHAT? I’ve been called a lot of things that I don’t like, but... Read more »
