California Drought: 10 Ways to Save Water

California Drought: 10 Ways to Save Water

The fight is real, but mommy wars are not

You know what else I’m done with? “Mommy wars.” But not in the way you think. Oh, yes, we should all “support” each other. We should all “stop judging.” Support! Fuck support. Well, wait. Not really.

I’m supposed to be at an ashram.

Fuck the lie that we can have it all

Fuck the lie that we can have it all

My husband was called to work out of town and I’m fucking pissed. Sometimes I resent the shit out of this motherhood good, the way it goes down for me. Yeah, I said it. Sometimes I don’t want to be the one on whom the KIDS ALWAYS FALL. Sometimes I don’t want to be...
