(Potty) Mouth Wide Open

“Take it easy there, Sailor,” my husband will say to me when I start swearing. He says this, that is, unless (a) our daughter is present or (b) he’s not feeling very generous with me, which is most of the time honestly. He doesn’t like my potty mouth. He doesn’t even like me to euphemistically curse, which I find really funny.“I can’t say Fudge around Emmy?” I’ll ask, smirking. “But, it’s not even a bad word.”“It is if that’s your intention for saying it,” he’ll respond. “Tone is powerful. Words are powerful.”“Seriously? Then what the fuck am I supposed to say?”...more

"Me Bad Parent:" The Do's and Don't of Parenting

I was online searching for images of parenting, and I came across these old-school photos of baby care "do's" and "don'ts." I think they are super-helpful and should definitely be left on bedside tables in maternity wards for new moms and dads who are clueless. I mean, I almost washed my baby with a power hose, but if I had seen this, I would have known better:...more

The Mommy Rodeo: How Do We Survive the Ride?

Inner peace. What the heck is that?! So let's call this a hypothetical situation: You are working in a job that you have a love/hate relationship with. Your hours on the clock are filled with constant buzzing sounds. People are always coming up to you with questions that you must find answers in a reasonable amount of time. Breaks are almost non-existent and eating lunch at 3:00pm is the norm. Oh, and let's just say 30 minutes to eat is maybe 10 minutes most days. ...more

Although well meaning, many seasoned mothers and grandmothers give out unsolicited advice and although it may have worked for their child, it may not necessarily be right for yours.  2....more

Stop the Negative Self-Talk, Moms

The other day, I read a Facebook post that has resonated with me. It basically stated that we, as mothers, do not often notice we are beautiful. In fact, we do the opposite. Often, we say to ourselves and out loud to those around us, that we are not beautiful. We point out all of our physical deficits, or perceived deficits. How many times has someone complimented you, for you to only refute what they've said? ...more
I myself am practicing this as well.  I find it easiest to do my positive self-talk in the front ...more
