No, Kids Are Not “Colorblind” Nor Should They Be

DocMcStuffins

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 child to television, I’ll tell you that Doc McStuffins is an African American cartoon portraying a compassionate veterinarian who heals sick stuffed animals. She is...

This Week in Videos (October 21, 2014)

IMG_6423

Too much to catch you up on, too little time. I know things on the interwebs move fast so here’s a little snapshot with images and videos from the haps as of late. 1. I’m dying of humility mixed with feelings of awesomeness when my new (best-selling) client compliments me to her fanbase. I’m working for her as a Research...

The Shame of Not Knowing…

DSC01086

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. The therapist’s job is to try to get to the bottom of my...

The Denture Saga…

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’ve done some complaining on my facebook page about it so if you’re really interested, follow me there....

Three Things Right Now.

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...

The Abortion She Should Have Had…

In case you’re new here (or to feminism in general) I ought to inform you that I am ardently pro-choice. Pro-choice to my very bones. I will probably spend the rest of my life fighting and advocating for women to keep ownership over their bodies no matter what may have taken up residency in their uterus. To me, abortion is...

“Talk to Your Doctor About Adding Abilify…”

abilify-square

***Trigger Warning*** (By the way, I hate saying “Trigger Warning” on my own posts. It just seems so self-important, like, “Oh, I’m going to feed you a real sob story now. Brace yourselves.” But out of respect for others struggling, I know it’s a necessary disclaimer. I just don’t want anyone thinking that I think what I’m about to say...

5 Things You Don’t Know About Me…

old-famo

Well, you may not know these things. I don’t know what you know but I don’t think I’ve mentioned them much here so perhaps not. Let’s see… 1. The name of my first band was Emil Muzz. I scored the gig as lead singer in that band one fateful night while tagging along on a babysitting job. It was Christmas...
