I’m a vegetarian and have been since February of 2007, except for a few torrid affairs with Zaxby’s chicken. I co-slept with my kid for a LONG time. I didn’t cloth diaper, though I think it’s noble of those who do. I have a lot of political opinions but I rarely share them because I believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion… even if it’s stupid and clearly wrong. (yours, not mine.)
I work hard when I’m at work, but I leave it at the office because being a lawyer is tough, but it doesn’t hold a candle to being J’s mom. Hardest. Gig. Ever. So I’m a full time lawyer, a full time mom, a part time crazy lady, and a semi-superhero. In April of 2011, my husband announced that our marriage was over, so I’ve been a single mom ever since, trying to balance the needs of myself alongside the needs of my son. And it’s a dangerously precarious balance. Dating was hard enough when there was only one of me to worry about!
I write to maintain my sanity so if I’m happy, it’s happy. If I’m sad, it might get a little “depths of despair.” But it will always be 100% me.
So, you know… take off your shoes and sit a spell. But be on your best behavior, okay? I don’t tolerate haters in my home.
