Face Value

I was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy right after Lady Bug was born. So, on top of having a fussy newborn, I had a jacked up face, and everything that goes along with that. It ended up being a hard year. I’ve always thought the worse an experience, the better fodder it is for your writing. […]

The Perfect (re)Treat

“You need to come here and get a break. Everything is optional. You could just sit in your room the whole time if you wanted to. There’s a hot tub and a sauna there.” The prospect of a hot tub was tempting. My dear college friend lives and works at the Shoshoni yoga ashram, which is […]

A Happy Anniversary

Each year, Dan and I take turns planning our anniversary. Last year it was his turn to plan, which was good, considering I was four days postpartum and in no position to plan… anything. We did it lower than low key, at home, while my mom took Sweet Pea out to dinner. We were “alone” […]

I’m on Huffington Post!

I was all set to sit down at my computer during this Very Special Time and write a blog post about Hannukah. The Very Special Time of which I speak the Haley’s comet of my week when both of my girls are napping at the same time. Not just in their rooms at the same […]

Lies I Told Myself About Baby #2… Guest Posting at In the Powder Room!

I know one thing about babies: They are mysterious. I learned this when my two-year-old was a baby, but I buried this nugget of truth in the recesses of my brain, which is disorganized to begin with. I can barely remember where I put my phone. I sailed through my second pregnancy, blissfully unaware of what was […]

Maria Kang is Not Judging You.

When I first saw Maria Kang’s “What’s your excuse” image, I thought, “You Go Girl!” And then I saw the shit storm that broke out over the interwebs. People are like “It’s fat shaming!” “I have a disease, I can’t look like her!” “I have bad genes, I’ll never look like that!” and “How dare […]

Home is where the Mom is

I started this a couple of weeks ago. My mom had stayed with us for a long weekend. She came in to see the Listen To Your Mother Show.  I stepped out from the car onto the pavement of the “Departures” area and peeked at Sweet Pea, who was content to play with her bee […]

True Story: I Met My Husband At a Bar

On this day five years ago, I lived with two roommates I found on Craigslist. I had packed my Jetta and driven cross country, alone, except for the company of my GPS just two weeks prior. I was thousands of miles from home. I had no job, no man, and practically no friends in Boulder. […]

What if they say my duck is wet because it’s wet?

I’ve been thinking about an offhand comment my cousin made about my blog. I don’t get to see this cousin as often as I’d like, due to geographical issues. She checks up on me via my ramblings on Whatevs… Which I love. Having never been to any meeting that ends in the word “Anonymous,” I […]
