Tantrums & Grief in the Grocery: More Than Meets the Eye

I don't realize my son is tense, bothered, quiet. I don't realize it until later, after the urge to strangle him had subsided. One of the special racks, at the end of the fourth or fifth aisle, is stacked with boxes of muesli bars. "Can we get some of these please Mum?" I barely even glance at him. "We can, but not from here. When we get around to where they usually are, where there's lots of them to choose from, we'll get them then." Those of you who spend time in the company of small children know how this next bit goes.

Dear Bill Nye, You Don't Get to Tell My Kids What to Believe

Dear Bill Nye, Growing up, watching Bill Nye the Science Guy was a treat. I learned a lot. It was cool. It was fun. It was educational. Just this past year, I was reminded of the awesomeness that was Bill Nye the Science Guy. I got excited. My little boys were almost old enough to watch! Probably just a year or two more before they can start really enjoying this show. Well, Bill, it's not gonna happen. You see, this mama just can't get behind you anymore....more

BlogHer 13 Buddy System: tell me what you think of this idea!

Hi, my name is Linda. I have many fine qualities. I'm a good wife and mother, I'm good at my job, I sometimes write some pretty hilarious stuff, and I am a fabulous online networker.  But put me, face-to-face, in a room of people I don't know, and I'm riddled with social anxiety.  This is what happened to me when I previously attended a BlogHer conference. ...more
