Destination Maternity Leave

It was my understanding that everyone was pretty much on the same page that maternity leave in the U.S. is hard. It’s basically Mom Boot Camp, and just when things start improving- you’ve gotten the hang of breastfeeding, your baby is smiling at you (like, really happy to see you, not passing gas), and you’re […]

How to Create a Killer DIY Writing Retreat

Have you ever dreamed of attending a fancy writing retreat, where huge carafes of coffee and a selection of herbal teas are available all day long? You’re surrounded by woods, or maybe water, but definitely other writers. Also, there would be fruit bowls and trays of fresh scones and muffins. You’d have deleted Facebook from your phone […]

I thought I was done with dating…

I’m up on Scary Mommy today talking about the grief (and the occasional joy) that come with finding a sitter. I hope you’ll join me over there… Is it just me or is it a jungle out there? I’d love to hear your success/horror stories in the comments! For many moms, the prospect of leaving […]

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’m Guest Posting at Scary Mommy Today

I am thrilled to be guest posting at Scary Mommy today. Here is an excerpt of the post… Fat talk has been my vernacular since before I got my braces off. Though, somehow I deluded myself into thinking I would break the habit once I became a mother. For years, it was not unusual for […]
