A few days ago was the 5 year anniversary of my wedding. Months ago, we decided how we would spend it: on the beach in Hawaii. We planned a whole trip for the extended family, grandparents, aunts, and cousins....
Yesterday my husband did something fantastic for me. My one thing too many. My personal un-doable task. That may look different for different people, but for me it was my personal laundry. This might seem like a small silly...
This post is part of our Women's Health Editorial Series, brought to you by Caduceus Medical Group, Facial Aesthetic Concepts, and Zammex. We hope these pieces provide you with helpful information, encouragement, and insight about your health. Sex.  Moms still...
  Mom Guilt. Two little words that often linger in a mother's head and cause undue suffering. If you're a mother, and I'm going to guess if you're reading this you certainly are (or soon-to-be), this is a feeling you've...
Full disclosure, this post is based on stereotypical gender roles. Also, I should mention that my husband and I have a pretty egalitarian relationship whereby we each do almost exactly half of the kid and house responsibilities. He is...
I was hoping a follow up to my first Grieving While Being a Parent post would not need to come so soon after the first, but here I am.  I'm both dreading and feeling compelled to write this second post...

When your stepchild hates you and there's nothing you can do but take it - it hurts.  I have four children.  One of them is not mine biologically.  But whenever anyone asks how many children I have, I generally say...
Who doesn't love some lemonade? Especially with a little lavender and vodka...and maybe a little mint...oh! The post. Right...sorry I got distracted. So anyhoo... I had an idea the other night to turn a not-so-pleasant parenting experience into a more...
You're a Stepmom, not a Real Mom. You can't possibly understand because you don't actually have your own children. Mother's Day isn't for you. I am a stepmom and I've heard it all.  I've believed it all.  And there are times when...
Yup, I just said sex. We are going there. Dad, stop reading right about...now. This post isn’t just meant to be scandalous, it’s meant to be informative too. As some of you know, my specialization area in my work as...
My McDreamy

My McDreamy

Grey's Anatomy likes to give nicknames to their doctors, McDreamy, McSteamy, McVet etc.  And I'd say that I've definitely got myself a McDreamy, for more reasons than one. See, there comes a point in everyone's life when you realize you've...
