Practically Perfect in Every Way….

I am a perfectionist. I’ve tried REALLY hard not to be for most of my life, but the fact of the matter is, I want things to be perfect. I don’t want to lose a case, I don’t want to have a dirty house, I don’t want to miss my television shows, I want to […]

Juggling Act

I do not know how to juggle. And I mean that literally. I find juggling pretty fascinating but the idea of actually trying to throw things in a semi-circle while keeping at least one item in the air at all times is absolutely terrifying for me. Maybe it stems from my fear of heights, who […]

MommyGate

I have a high-need son. And right now, his need is MOMMY. It’s borderline ridiculous and would be annoying if he weren’t so absolutely adorable. He is perfectly fine in daycare. He has fun, he plays, he enjoys his time with his fabulous teacher. But then, from the moment I pick him up until he […]

Post-Baby Body

Having a baby, no matter how you go about it, changes you. Sure, it changes your life, but I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about how it actually, physically changes you. I have never been tiny. I’m not obese, but I usually see about ten to fifteen pounds more than I’d like to when […]

Sleep Working

I have been up since 3 am. Somehow I am still sitting at work, dressed in a suit, and billing time. I don’t actually remember getting here or really even getting out of bed, but I’m certain I’m awake because if I were dreaming, I’d be at work in my pjs… or naked, but that’s […]

Poops and Teething

My son is one talented pooper. Seriously. I’ve never seen anything like the fiasco I witnessed this morning. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had poop on the sheets, poop all over the changing table, and my personal favorite, poop on mommy. But this morning I was truly impressed. I could smell him from a mile […]

Monday, Monday

Every week it’s the same. I hate Mondays. I know that everyone hates Mondays, but I think it’s harder when you have to leave a child behind and go to a place you don’t particularly like. Don’t get me wrong, I love the people I work with… I just hate being a lawyer. Maybe that’s […]

To all you other moms out there…

First, and because no one says it enough, you are seriously amazing! You are, no doubt, doing the very best you can at every second of the day and that is a feat to be proud of. I often find myself in awe of the moms I see out and about who seem to be […]

Saturdays

I love Saturday mornings. Even this morning, when Mother Nature decided to mock me with my apparent over-fertility. (I mean, really? How can I go back to being on a regular cycle when I’m breast feeding?!?!) Saturday mornings mean that when J wakes up we can lie in bed and look at each other for […]

It’s Friday!

I don’t have much to say this morning. I have a lot to vent about, but I’m headed to Savannah this morning for a lunch meeting and deposition. Okay…. it’s not a lunch meeting. It’s a fun lunch with a law school friend. But it is a deposition. I’ll post my angry thoughts about equitable […]
