Hey, who can blame her? Sometimes when you get home from a long day at preschool, you just want to plop on the couch and watch Netflix with a glass of wine. Wait. That’s how it goes, right?  READ MORE

    Should Age Really Matter in a Relationship?

    I’ve been thinking about age lately especially when it comes to relationships.

    Men date younger women all the time and it’s no big deal, right? Is that because these women are fertile, can still have kids and generally look better the younger they are whereas men “age better” (though most of the guys I seem to know are all bald or balding, but let’s assume this is generally true)?

    An Open Letter To My Uterus

    Dear Uterus,

    Let’s face it.  You and I have never really gotten along.  From the start you’ve been unruly, tilting the wrong way, bleeding profusely and being a literal pain in the ass.

    Each month your shenanigans cause me inordinate amounts of grief and I’ve had it.  The pain is more than I can bear, the cramps make me homicidal and the bloat–don’t even make me go there.  Not to mention the fatigue and that little stunt you pulled when I was twelve.  (Seriously.  Hemorrhaging in the middle of science class?  I’m still recovering from the embarrassment.)

    27 Fall Activities and Crafts For Kids That Are Actually Doable

    I love scouring Pinterest, looking at all of the beautiful, time consuming crafts and activities for kids.

    Yeah, my kids aren’t about to last 30 minutes while I continuously stir homemade play dough on the stove. I need quick, cute, fun, not too messy, easy clean up, good for kids all of ages, and things that the kids will actually enjoy. Looking for that too? READ MORE
