I am a mother, not a shadow of my former self, and I will not apologize

I am a mother, not a shadow of my former self, and I will not apologize

We have got to talk. We have got to talk about the way motherhood is so often depicted as this sanctimonious martyrdom of hell in which formerly interesting and intellectual humans are reduced to snot and cereal. This is the situation, partly. There are phases, particularly when children are in their infancy, when life seems to...

Do you ever wonder what your kids will remember?

Do you ever wonder what your kids will remember?

I am often the mom who forgets whatever it is I was supposed to do. The activity. The paperwork. The change in regular scheduling. The thing the kid was supposed to bring to school: a stuffed animal, for example. This is not because I’m a “hot mess mom.” I don’t even know exactly what...

Sometimes, I am the asshole

Sometimes, I am the asshole

One of my goals in life is to not let my decision to have children ruin anybody’s life. I talk a lot about asshole, entitled parents producing tiny asshole children, and I work really, really hard not to do that. It’s kind of my claim to fame. It’s not. I’m not famous, or even...

In December 2014, I ran my first online writing workshop. That was possibly the most boring first sentence I’ve ever written in my life. Stay with me here. It may get better. Anyway, my business manager and family had been encouraging me to launch a class for a long time, but I didn’t, because...

Gender-neutral bathrooms are a parent’s dream

Gender-neutral bathrooms are a parent’s dream

So, people are concerned that male pedophiles are going to prey on girls in female bathrooms. UMMMMMMMM geniuses. These flesh-eating-bacteria-scum were formerly sharing the bathrooms with your boys. How were you not concerned about that? And if you are so concerned about the safety of your children, why the hell aren’t you super freaking...
