Slummy Mummy: We thought we could have it all. Now we just want to poop alone.

Introducing Slummy Mummy, a web series. Have you ever felt that you were failing at everything? That no matter how much you planned for parenthood, no matter how much you KNEW your life would change, you are still overwhelmed with the smallest daily tasks?

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?

During a very professorial if somewhat dry explanation about South Korea on the BBC, his interview was hilariously interrupted by first a toddler, then a baby in a walker, and then a panicked wife/mom trying to corral them away. The departure of the toddler knocks over some books stacked on a bed, which […]

Working Mom Guilt | Guest Post for ScaryMommy.com

Working Mom Guilt. It’s a pain in the arse. I was psyched to write this post which was featured on the always awesome ScaryMommy.com.
