I’ll tell you a little something and some of you might be like, “LOL, WHUT. You are insane.” Well. Maybe most of you will say that. It sorta feels insane. Even I can admit that. Or maybe you’ll be like, “No, that makes perfect sense.” It sorta feels that way, too.

As we parents tend to do this time of year, I took the kids shopping for Halloween costumes. The boys weren’t set on what they wanted to be, but my daughter confidently said she wanted to be “Doc McStuffins.” In case you don’t have little people in your life or you’re one of those amazing parents whose never exposed your...

When you sit with a therapist for an hour every week, you have to find things to talk about. I’m seeing a new one so we’re in the “getting-to-know-you” phase and this week’s topic was all about the trauma I faced in my first and second births.

Alright, listen. All of my plans to say smart things on the internet are being trashed to shit right now because I am still living The Dental Nightmare From Hell, which is on its fourth or fifth low-budget sequel at this point.

I’m going to experiment with posting smaller, quicker posts on the days that I just can’t spend time writing out the elaborate posts that are floating around in my head. So here are three things that I wanted to mention right now in no particular order of significance. 1. I got a part-time job as a research assistant to a...
