Defending moms who drink (and swear)

Leslie Garrett’s article on Salon (read by clicking HERE) makes some great points. The jokes mothers make about drinking because their kids cry or drinking to numb their anxieties and frustrations about parenting most likely conceal something serious in many cases. Not all, but when it is ever the case that one opinion or observation... Read more »

Are you stupid smart?

There are far too many people on this planet who are unable to approach things with an open mind. These people are either unable or unwilling, (I haven’t figured out if it’s one or the other, or both) to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes. And by walking in someone else’s shoes, I don’t...

Will you take the ultimate parenting challenge?

Despite my brick of snot brain, I could have written a Blogapalooza post last night about facing challenges, but earlier in the day when I told my son about Blogapalooza, he was intrigued and so uncharacteristically interested in writing, I couldn’t resist letting him run with it.

Why I think Pinkwashing is bullsh*t

The video above is me talking shit about this “Pinkwashing” nonsense while wearing my pink nightmare jambes, (that’s what I call ’em) and my Gryffindor hat. Fuck yeah, Harry Potter. However, I have to be honest here. When I took the sorting quiz on Pottermore, I was sorted into Ravenclaw, but I don’t have a... Read more »

Growing up and liking it - Talking with your daughter about boobs and pubes

This pamphlet was in a box of keepsakes that my mom put away for me. Growing up and liking it – the pamphlet that launched a thousand more questions, because what the ‘eff? It contains a bunch of letters, a few diagrams, and a glossary. Piece of shit if you ask me, but it’s sure... Read more »
