Surviving, not thriving

About two years ago, I was on my lunch break at work, driving down a fairly busy road to grab some fast food when a tiny toddler shoe came flying out of the car ahead of me and hit the hood of my Super Sexy Soccer Mom Minivan (TM pending). I just stared for a […]

In Defense of the Kiddie Leash

Once upon a time we were all women who probably thought we’d raise children better than the mom in front of us line with the screaming toddler who NEEEEEEDED that candy bar and if she didn’t get that candy bar RIGHT NOW she was going to fall on the floor or maybe kick a stranger […]

When Life Gives You…Lice

I have gotten the call at least 5 times now. FIVE. TIMES. “Um, Lindsay? We need you to come pick up (insert name of one of three children) here. (Child) has nits/lice.” The first time, I was naive. I googled a bit, went to the store and bought some RID and was prepared to be […]
