Tell Me, What Do People Thank You For?

Jun 21, 2016

I’m a huge believer in gratitude. It’s actually had a huge, transformative impact on my life in the last several years, and gratitude makes its way into my writing with great frequency. Every morning I practice rituals – savoring a cup of coffee quietly, listening to the birds outside; setting silent intentions for the...

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

I’m Just Feeling Sad Today

Jun 13, 2016

I couldn’t get out of bed this morning. It wasn’t because it’s my first official day of vacation, or because I stayed up too late last night – my days of all nighters are long gone, to be sure. The air was cool, the mockingbirds were announcing the dawn, and I knew my children...

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...
