Momma Friends

I think I’ve said it before but being a mom is like being a member of a secret society.  You can find kindred spirits almost anywhere. You know them by the worn circles under their eyes, the exasperated sighs on their lips.  You recognize the ketchup stains on their shirt and the dried snot on […]

Rough Morning.

I dropped my kid off at daycare today.  I didn’t want to do it.  He has a broken arm and an ear infection.  I shouldn’t have to take my kid to daycare when he has a broken arm and an ear infection.  It didn’t help that he cried and reached for me when I left.  […]

Having Kids Changes Everything…

Today, something atrocious happened. And it’s something that hasn’t happened to me since… well, since I was just a little girl.  And it got me thinking about all the other things that have happened lately that never used to happen.  This year has been crazy already and I have a feeling it’s going to get […]

Ten Reasons being a mom rocks (even when it doesn’t)

I need a pick me up this morning.  We’re in week five billion and seventy-three of J being sick, plus he’s in a cast, plus it’s coming up on the end of the month and I need to be billing more and instead I’m at home with my feverish child who thinks throwing blocks at […]

Living in HD

Tonight I sat in the living room of my tiny apartment and watched How I Met Your Mother on our new 40 inch television.  Just as the credits started to roll, Husband turned away from his computer for a moment, flipped up his headphones and said “You know you can watch that in high definition, […]

The Red Dress Club

This week’s prompt: Write a piece – 600 word limit – about finding a forgotten item of clothing in the back of a drawer or closet. Let us know how the item was found, what it is, and why it’s so meaningful to you or your character. “Is this drawer yours or hers?” I asked […]


J has a broken arm and I have a broken spirit.  But we’re both repairing… slowly.  If you missed the firestorm that was my twitter stream last night, let me recap: 5:00- I got home from work, ready to enjoy my first night to myself all week. Husband and I had decided to send J […]

I’m Common Sense challenged

I broke my hair brush. This is fairly significant in a lot of ways. First, without a hairbrush, I traditionally sport what can only be called a Medusa Bouffant. There are curls, but they do not resemble pretty curls. They’re more like the sort of curls you might see on a homeless woman who has […]

Something’s Got to Give…

I don’t know how to help my son. Tonight he felt warm so I took his temperature and it registered at 102.1.  This marks the fourth week out of the seven weeks so far in 2011 that he has spiked a fever over 101. And over 101 means no daycare. Which means either Husband or […]

The Red Dress Club – Friday Prompt

I decided to join up with the fantastic writers of The Red Dress Club in an effort to shake myself out of my writing funk and maybe remember what it means to actually… I don’t know, write? So the prompt this week was this… in 600 words or less write a piece that begins with […]
