Parenthood is JUST like “The Walking Dead”

2010 was a big year for me. I became a mom and just a month later,  “The Walking Dead” premiered. Coincidence? I think not. Because once I became a mother my life changed in ways tantamount to a zombie apocalypse. If you think I’m exaggerating, either you’re not a parent or are just have your sh#t waaay more together than I do. Over the past seven years of my son’s life AND seven seasons of the show, the similarities have […]

Why does Christmas come so DAMN EARLY? A RANT!

Christmas in October?=Christmas too early! When I was a kid I looked forward to the change in the seasons. I enjoyed decorating for each holiday. My kids LOVE putting up decorations now too, but I’ve grown bitter, because every time I head into the store to buy something that reflects the given season, well – it’s out of stock, replaced with merchandise that I have absolutely no use for in a given season. Have you been in this position? Replace […]

It really needed to be done.” My first thought, was “Wow, you’re welcome?” I didn’t realize my lack of cleanliness was affecting his personal style. Then, I realized if it’s affecting […]

When a Mom is “Alone” with her Thoughts

Once upon a time, a mom was alone with her thoughts… We all know that’s a fairy tale. There’s a running monologue in my head 24/7, that is often both nonsensical and disorganized. If I were an internet browser, I’d have too many tabs open at once and quite a few webpages would be crashing. No matter how many lists, apps, and calendars I have,  it’s hard to keep track. Life stuff. Work stuff. Kid stuff. Love stuff. Health stuff. […]

A Married Mom’s Message to Single Moms | Being a Single Mom is Hard

No matter what you think, being a married mom is nothing like being a single mom. I’m married with two kids and a husband who travels most of the time. I’ve heard other married women in my situation say they feel, “just like a single mom.” And while I get feeling like you are doing it all on your own, feeling like you are doing it on your own is not the same as actually doing it on your own.
