How to Survive a Day Trip With Kids Solo

Some days I feel like a walking contradiction. I want my girls to make friends but the homebody in me is happy to avoid play dates and going to the park. When my husband, Chris, works late, I panic because it means I’ll be alone for that much longer with my girls. Oh, and the idea of […]

#Too Female? Too Awesome! Women on TV

The Disney Jr Drinking Game

Being a mom of three little ones means I get to watch lots of children’s television. More than I ever expected, honestly. I mean. I knew my kids would watch shows, but I thought I would stay oblivious as Sesame Street was on as I did other things. How wrong I was! I soon discovered […]

Why I Write

Write. I just want to write. As I close my eyes to go to sleep, ideas flood my brain. Words hover over me and I write some brilliant shit in my head. Sometimes I fall asleep with the words still circulating; other times, I have to sit up and make notes in a journal or […]

Throwback Thursday Link Party #8

Oh my! What a week! Beng a mom of three littles means staying busy even when you don’t want to be. That is my life this past week. My attempts to read all 24 link ups and comment on them last week failed! At least, I read 90%, right? Hopefully, life will settle down and […]
