But in just three days, I’m the lady in charge of the turkey. And guess what? I’ve never cooked a turkey in my life. If you’ve been a long-time follower here, you know that I literally created a series called, “Slacker Mom.”  Up until now, I’ve been able to get […]

How To Get Boys To Pee Standing Up

I have been a parent for almost four years, and so far the experience is a never-ending process of working on something. Working on sleep training, working on potty training, working on NOT telling Grandma “I hate you and I wish you would go back to Florida”. (Any tips on that last one are more than welcome. That’s why there’s a comments section below.) But I never thought I’d lose sleep Googling, “how to get boys to pee standing up.” […]

Karen Finally Got Some Alone Time… and Missed her Son

I finally got some much-longed for alone time. But it didn’t turn out how I expected. “Ok buddy, I’ll see you Friday okay? Love you!” My son barely took his eyes off the tablet screen to say good bye to me. Apparently watching a jet-plane take off is far more interesting than saying goodbye to your mother when you’re three-years- old. I mean, let’s face it, he doesn’t completely understand what I’m talking about and he has minimal concept of […]

On Halloween, This Mom was Hung Like a Dino

I used to be sexy on Halloween. Not Basic Sexy, like “sexy nurse” or “sexy mouse”, but Creative Sexy. At least I thought so. Instead of Little Orphan Annie I would be Little WHOREphan Annie, showing a lot of leg and whatever cleavage I could muster. One year I was White Trash, dressed in a short tight white dress with white garbage like tissues and styrofoam cups and un-used tampons pasted all over it. You get the idea: something clever […]

Mommy Confession: 10 Real Reasons Why I’m Staying Home

I was talking to a friend. She was telling me how she needed to find a way to tell someone she was going to cancel their meetup because she just didn’t want to be bothered.
