I was sitting in my backyard with my girlfriend today, watching my kids swim, and I noticed my husband working his butt off. We ladies were sitting in the shade, drinking iced coffee, on padded adirondack chairs, girl-talking, and enjoying … Continue reading A Letter To Myself- For The Next Time I’m Mad At My Husband
What I really want for Mother’s Day. (But know will never, ever happen.) 1) I want my house to stay clean for more than 24 hours after I clean it. Last week, being the smart ass that I am, I … Continue reading A List of Unrealistic Things To Ask For On Mother’s Day

I found a way in my budget and schedule to bring my kid to you over … Continue reading A Letter To My Son’s Therapist: Sorry, Not Sorry
