Not Enough

I have a child who has “quirks” as I tend to call them. I don’t often say disabilities because labels suck, but more so, we’ve been through about 8 diagnoses, only a few of which have stuck. Who knows where we’ll be a year from now. I was fortunate because in my job, I work […]

Confession: I’m A Horrible Patient

A few weeks ago, I had a partial hysterectomy and it was glorious.  I mean, there was pain, and that wasn’t great, but they gave me sleepy drugs and I’ve had the best sleep I’ve had since my last surgery.  And then the pain meds, so I both do not remember much of being in […]

The End-O my Endo

I have endometriosis and it is no walk in the park, ladies. Short story long, in high school, I was the girl that always had to go to the nurse to get meds (nevermind the ones I kept in my purse so I could double up) when I was on my period and would beg […]

Our NICU Story

November is always a strange month, full of emotion for me.  It is the month that our twins were born prematurely and had to spend 20 days in the NICU.  Celebrating a joyous occasion, the birth of a child (OR TWO!) can turn into a heart-wrenching, tear-filled, and terrifying time when your babies are born […]

Mom confession: I Dislike Halloween

I do.  I said it.  Don’t like it.  Happy to do away with it.  I loved it as a kid, and didn’t mind it so much when my kids were little; probably because I could choose their costumes, they didn’t demand to do a million activities and they couldn’t eat all the candy!  Now that […]

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 […]

This Beautiful Mess

Lives are busy.  Every mom knows just how overwhelming things can get.  While thinking of all of the things I had to do: (which kid needed goldfish and which needed juice boxes for a class donation thing?  I know one of them has a day this week that they should look nice but was that […]
