Back to School… For Us All

August 15, 2013

Thus begins the ritual of starting off the new school year with pretty clothes that aren’t quite faded yet, bookbags free of the mid-year foot smell and goldfish crumbs, and legitimately clean and styled hair. Because what else do I have to do at 6am? Certainly not body slam three kids into the bed so […]

Children are like Poltergeist

July 17, 2013

Bedtime is a crap time for me. I’ve mentioned this before, but I experienced a traumatic event when I was a little girl in which I woke up to find a man cutting through my window screen with a knife. That basically ruined the whole sweet dreams situation for me, and led to an elevated […]

Andy. Hero.

July 6, 2013

Andy and I have been sitting on the couches of our living room staring at a tv that is not on, in complete silence, for about 10 minutes. Aside from my tear filled “thank you,” in the center of the restaurant, we haven’t spoken since 12:o5pm Eastern Time. And I only know that because in […]

June 11, 2013

Today I joined New York Magazine, Esquire and CNet to chat about what’s hot this Father’s Day. I, of course, made bondage jokes and served as comic relief.

Toothless Kid Problems

May 29, 2013

A few weeks ago, Jude lost his front teeth. It was very dramatic, in that, he wouldn’t pull them out and insisted that no one touch them whilst they hang there by a single vein making us all collectively barf our faces off every time he spoke to us. Then they fell out and I […]

Grown Men Make the Best Kids

May 24, 2013

Thanks Mara for this hysterical find! And if, like me, you love grown ass adults pretending to be children, I highly suggested the hysterical folks at Kid History. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Parenting on TV

May 21, 2013

If you asked me seven years ago what kind of parents we’d grow up to be, I’d have told you hopefully a mix of Lucy & Ricky Ricardo and Jo & Sam McGuire. A touch of retro glam and good ‘ol fashioned husband and wife scheming to keep things lively? Check. Quirky young parents who […]
