I’m Still Here, Friend

You called me a week ago and I still haven’t called you back. You texted to see if I could grab an early dinner, but my kids had soccer and baseball practice on the same night. When you planned a girls trip, I had a sick baby and had to pass. The gang was headed […]

Am I a Bad Mom?

Am I a bad mom? I wonder as I pop open the fifth Gogurt of the afternoon to appease teary eyes and get a moment of silence. I push aside the plate of veggies I gave my kids (knowing full well they wouldn’t eat them) and wonder how many daily servings of mac & cheese […]

Why I Want to Run for Office.

I am running for office. I can’t believe I just typed those words. This isn’t a post to promote myself. I won’t mention what office or county or city. Instead, I want to talk about the most important reason I am running for office. My daughters. When I became pregnant with my first baby, I […]

I’m currently feeling uninspired. I’ve written and deleted and rewritten ten different starts to an article in the past twelve hours, trying to find something meaningful to say. Do you ever feel like that? Even though the world is spinning, and things are happening, it’s like I can’t say or think anything that’s original or […]

Maybe You Shouldn’t “Join My Team”: An Honest Mom’s Guide to MLMs

If you’re a mom … or a living, breathing human with a social media account … you probably know someone who has found an amazing, life-changing product that you need to buy, like, now. That’s cool.

Tell Me You Love Me

I can’t get enough of Demi Lovato’s song, “Tell Me You Love Me”. In an age where music is available at the swipe of a finger on our phones, I could count on one hand how many times I’ve gone to the store to buy a CD. The first time I heard this song was […]
