I blog at When Did I Get Like This? and have been at it, more or less, since 2007.  I'm the author of WHEN DID I GET LIKE THIS? (HarperCollins, 2010) and MOTHER LOAD, a one-woman show that I toured with to sixteen cities after its off-Broadway run. I directed the 2012 and 2013 LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER productions in New York City. I've served as a contributor to Parenting and babytalk magazines, and have also written for other magazines and websites including Redbook, American Baby, Huffington Post, and CNN.com.  I also act on TV and on stage. I'm the mother of three, a recovering perfectionist, and lover of Twizzlers.
