Why My Husband is Great–And Why Yours Should Be, Too

Hello, Ladies and Gents. Look at this handsome man: That’s my husband. I know what you’re thinking– who is that good looking woman next to him? Just kidding. I know everyone’s thinking how amazingly attractive he is. Not to rub it in, but he’s an even more amazing father and husband. You see, my husband…

Things Not To Say To A Mom

I was having a long, wonderful conversation with my friend, writer of Raw Uncensored Mom  , (someone you should totally follow, by the way) about the ridiculously crazy things people think it’s okay to say to a mom. Let’s discuss: 1. When’s number two (or three, or whatever number you’re on) going to be here? Stop. Asking….

Sharing the Holidays

Sharing the Holidays:
“We compromise without resentment. We go in knowing that we may be sacrificing time with our loved ones, but we’re gaining times with other loved ones. “

A Letter To My Friends Without Kids

Know that I love you. Yes, my stories of the babe chasing cats may get old to you or her growing a tooth or waking up at 2:00 a.m. can get annoying, but hearing you say, “Man, that sucks” means the world to me. 

Throwing Your Child’s First Birthday

We just celebrated my daughter’s first birthday! I cannot believe it. She’s one. What a whirlwind of a year. From horrible experiences at daycare to awesome daycare experiences, difficulties breastfeeding to fights on social media, it’s been a fantastic year with my darling daughter. We just threw her first birthday and it was amazing, tiresome, and…

Raising a Daughter in a Slut-Shaming Society

Here’s I’m a Horrible Mom, jumping on the bandwagon and talking about what’s heavy in the news. You know what, though? It needs to be talked about. When I was in school, I had a friend who disclosed to us that she had had sex with her boyfriend. One time.  This was not super rare– a…

Competitive Moms vs Moms Who Just Want to Do Their Own Thing

The beauty of belonging to a mom’s group or having friends who are moms is that they feel your pain. Oh, you can’t go out for brunch like y’all had planned because your little angel is throwing a tantrum, pooped all over themselves, and needs a bath? No worries, Ma. I got you covered. We’ll…

Moms vs Social Media

Recently, my sister purchased a bear onesie for my daughter. When I say a bear onesie, I mean she becomes a bear. I didn’t know I had the ability to feel such unadulterated elation. Before I had a child, I always said, “I will never dress her in real clothes. I will put her in…

Staying at Home vs Working

When I first had my baby, I was lucky enough to receive a pretty good (though not perfect) maternity leave. I always knew I would go back to work, but there was a side of me who thought, maybe I’ll stay home after I go back for the semester (I’m a teacher). So, I had…

Moms vs Dads

It’s happening. It’s that time of the morning where it really could go either way– the baby could either continue sleeping, thus letting you sleep in the tiniest bit, or she actually gets up, thus you pretend to be asleep until your partner gets up. Almost inevitably, she wakes up. Now, the games have really…
