Netflix and Chill – I’m Down With a Low-Key Valentine’s Day

My last Valentine’s Day was filled with Netflix and chill. Literally. I’m talking about Netflix and chill as in eating Hamburger Helper on the couch and binge watching Parenthood. Ten years ago I would have felt slightly gypped having a low-key unexciting Valentine’s Day. However, at this stage in my life I’m one hundred percent […]

If Moms Wrote Honest Christmas Cards

It’s the time of year when holiday cards and the annual family letters start flooding my mailbox.  I love seeing the happy smiling faces on the cards and reading the cute letters about what my friends and family have been up to.

I Check My Phone But I’m Not A Bad Mom

Scrolling through Facebook the other day, a photo caught my eye.  It was a photo which showcased a letter that a daycare worker had taped up to one of their windows.  The letter basically not so nicely demanded that parents stop their “appalling” behavior of being on their phones while picking up their children. I get it.  I understand what the daycare […]

Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Mean Kids

My daughter has experienced her fair share of mean girls in her short 7-and-a-half years of life.  (When you’re seven, the half is of the utmost importance.) On the most horrifying and memorable occasion, my daughter had a little girl at school exclude her from playing with her group of friends.  The little girl then went on to scream hateful […]
