Week 3 of What to Expect When You Are Expecting, Again

This week is super emosh. If this is your first pregnancy it may not have crossed your mind yet that you could be pregnant. If this is your second pregnancy you might have a tingling sense that you might want to grab a test the next time you are at the grocery store. If this […]

Friday the 13th/Father’s Day

In honor of Father’s Day, I’m dedicating this post to the firefighter.   Friday evening the firefighter called to me to join him outside. He was so excited to share something. I rushed out to find him gazing at the moon rising. The moon was gianormous and red. Blood red. We could hear a pack […]

Adventures in Being an Introvert

I have mentioned before that I am an introvert. And someday I might write a poignant post all about the angst, the depth, and the beauty of introverted people. But not today. Today let’s just bask in the awkwardness, shall we? Situation 1: I have a friend (that is noteworthy for an introvert) who is […]

Mommy Wars

Dear friend, I am sorry for the incident that happened at church yesterday. You were walking out of a meeting and passed me and jokingly (also quietly) said something about how Eva T’s legs were positioned properly as I was wearing her, to which I bellowed after you, “Yeah, we don’t do that crotch dangling […]

Spanx, But No Spanx

I was invited to attend a meeting as a “mover and shaker” in the realm of social media. I was so honored/terrified. In addition to never finishing my degree, I have also never had a real job. Yes, I know, motherhood is a total real job. My mom pointed out that I am in charge […]
