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...
Hold on to your potato launchers. This is going to get silly! I just finished reading another Erma Bombeck book so, I must share what I've learned. Plus, I read it around Independence Day, so the lesson is fitting! The...
I recently found myself yelling at my kid. I know you have probably yelled at your kid. Frankly, I’ve done it more times than I’d like to admit.  But about a month ago I yelled like I have never yelled...
As moms, we all know that date night is something that probably doesn't happen as often as it should.  Date Night is not something to take lightly, which is why we are so excited to bring you some of...

My youngest little boy is 4, and one of the funniest kids you'll ever meet. But only if he lets you into his world. You see, Arlo is autistic. I'd like to tell you Arlo's story; about his autism,...
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...

Dear Husband, Please don't touch me for the next 3-5 years.  I know, it seems like a long time, but I promise it's not you, it's me. Let me explain. Since having our children I have constantly had my space invaded.  I...
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

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...
I have been blessed with 3 children, all extraordinary and crazy-making in their own special ways.  My first born daughter is 7, and I'm pretty sure she's smarter than I am.  I wouldn't call her a genius; she doesn't...
