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 …

The Climb: Why I Believe in Divorce

  Believe it or not,  my divorce has been the most spiritually rising experience of my life. Who'd of thought, huh?

Far from Free

  Why, at times, does it feel like the hardest thing we'll ever do, is live this life for ourselves? Take narcissists out of the equation, and it seems kind of backwards, doesn't it? We come into this life as a single, whole person. We start whole, because we know no different. As we grow, …

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, …

Hello Grief, We Meet Again

I’ve spent the good part of a year in a state called “Grief.” My grief is not unique to others. My grief is not a new kind that’s never been felt before. My grief is not deeper than someone else’s.  My grief is not different at all. My grief is the same kind you feel. …

The Unexpected Joy of My Divorce

I was sitting on a secret for almost a week before I decided to call my father. He had noticed I was distant the past few months but I didn't let on that it was anything more than stress at work, stress with the kids or the usual busyness of life. I could tell he …

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) …
