Baby Warmie Offers the #1 Diaper Bag on the Market

I had my last baby eight years ago! Feels like a lifetime when I see how far the baby products have come since then. The diaper bag I had was a brown satchel that wasn't just small, it hardly had any storage space. It cost a fortune and almost went through more trauma than I …

Dear Kim, This is About Kanye

Hey Kim, You don't know me but I'm just a writer mom therapist woman from California who watches your show, who is also fascinated by the "come up" you had, mind boggled by y'all's ability to take opportunity by the muthafuckin' horns and also enamored by just how incredibly smart you are in making gobs …

Confessions of an Intoxicated Mom in Quarantine

First off, I'd like to say I'm only on my third glass of wine for the night. In normal life, that would be excessive, but in quarantine life, it sounds about right. Let me just say that I, in no way am condoning drinking as a coping mechanism to get through quarantine, because that's not …

It’s Coming: Your Moment in the Sun

I've been moving through phases like the moon. I aspire to be full, only to get caught back in the dark and remerge as New. Not quite whole, I struggle to deal with the demons I can't slay. I continue on course emerging as the crescent, allowing the light in to stay. The hope to …

Forward

The first time I saw this picture of my son, I thought, “Boy, don’t you ever lose your innocence or your will to fight for what you believe in.” This was taken two months ago, and as the days move forward, so does my frame of thought. I’ve become more progressive, more aware, more reflective, …

When the Kids Leave

Ok, so here's the honest to goodness truth, divorce sucks. I know, shocker. The process is horrific, painful and gut-wrenching. Sharing custody of your children can really suck, too. But it can also give you, as a parent, the break you never knew you needed. I can't tell you the last time (before my divorce) …

Don’t Tell Me Halloween is Just One Day Out of the Year

If you're a parent, you're hyper-aware that Halloween isn't just one day out of the year. No. We WISH it was, but no. Halloween isn't just a tutu, a mask, or a simple costume, no. It's practically its own goddamn season. Halloween begins at least 4 weeks before October 31st. If you're really festive, maybe …

The Great Expectations of Motherhood: Getting Out of Our Own Way

I'm not ashamed to say that motherhood has been by far the hardest thing I've ever done. The day to day struggle of taking care of little ones while trying to take care of myself, it's an exhaustion no one could have prepared me for. Late nights, early mornings, midnight surprises, the physical strain is …

Moms, We’re Under Attack

Becoming a mother gave me a new perspective on every mother there ever was. The mother who had 10 kids, 5 kids, 2 kids, 1 kid. The mother who had a miscarriage, or several. The mother who was never able to have children, but yearned to. The aunt who never had her own, so she …

I Found ‘My People’ in a Closed Facebook Group

I have a handful of close "mom friends" in my real life, and I use the term "close" loosely. I might speak to them a few times a month, but that doesn't quite feel like I'm meeting the quota. So I tried to find a label that would define me, and my odd repulsive feelings …
