The Girl With Moxie
Pretend Boyfriends

About a month ago Deena and I had one of our marathon phone chats. These started when we were teenagers and our parents would yell about astronomical charges on the bill. Over the years, our conversations have run the gamut from … Continue reading

Keeping the Romance Alive with “Date Night”

Keeping the Romance Alive with “Date Night”

For date night on Saturday, me and my old man went to Bed Bath & Beyond. Got new sheets and finally, FINALLY, a Keurig coffee machine. Waiting so long allowed us to invest in the brand new Keurig 2.0 (cue oooohs and ahhhhs). Drinking first coffee with it this morning. Tully’s Hawaiian Blend. Brought...

Arlo explains how to please a baby at bedtime

Arlo explains how to please a baby at bedtime

Hey, mom. Arlo here. I feel I’ve been pretty clear on this topic, but there appears to be some confusion still, which I can only assume is a result of a profound slow-mindedness on your part, which is cool, I guess. Little disappointing that my genes were plucked from your pool, but hey. Water...

Dating Advice: One weird tip

Dating Advice: One weird tip

I totally hooked you in with that title. My dating advice isn’t actually weird. It’s pretty simple actually. Maybe that makes it weird. Dating is frustrating. I know. I did it for 20 years before I got married. I watched friend after friend and relative after relative walk down the aisle. Here’s my dating...

Friday’s Hot Tip: Slow Cooker Chicken Curry

Confession: I tend to make the same dishes over and over again, especially in my slow cooker. It’s usually chili, a bean dish, or I’m cooking dried beans so I can freeze them for later use. While I have a … Continue reading

America, please stop raising assholes

America, please stop raising assholes

Hey America. I know you’re busy. But if you have a minute, I have a really important request: Please stop raising assholes. I know. You’re just so good at it. It’s your jam. But seriously. It’s not complicated. It’s not even that deep. STOP RAISING HUMANS WHO ARE DICKS TO OTHER HUMANS. Sorry for...

I learned a few things in 2014

I learned a few things in 2014

In 2014 I learned that pregnancy doesn’t get any shorter even the 4th time you do it, and the last month is still actually 349 days and the weight you gain isn’t like special, allowable fancy weight even though it feels like special, allowable, fancy weight that will just fall off. And I learned...

Not Your Grandma’s Resolutions

Not Your Grandma’s Resolutions

You know what day it is, right? This is the day that the whole world comes together and says, “I wish I’d worked more”. No, wait. That’s what people say on their death bed. Or rather, what people never say on their death bed. Also? The green squigglies are telling me that “deathbed” is...

Things I’m supposed to care about but don’t, Christmas Edition

Things I’m supposed to care about but don’t, Christmas Edition

Motherhood is continually urging me to give a shit about things I couldn’t care less about. Actually wait. No. Not motherhood. The hype surrounding motherhood. Websites, magazines, television, my damn Facebook feed. It expects me to care about things like Elf on the Shelf, for example. Nope. Don’t care. I think it’s weird and a lot...
