Can I Be An 80s Mom For A Day?

So I thought I knew what parenthood would be like. Because I was a kid once, who had parents. And since that is all I knew, I figured… yeah, it will be a lot like that. Maybe a little different, but not too much. READ MORE

    I Would Do Anything for Love, but I Won’t Do That

    Am I a good wife? I like to think so. I take care of the house and kids while my husband works hard at the office. We’re a good team. We work well together. If he needs me to pick up his dry cleaning, I got it. If he wants steak for d...

    Little Girls Don’t Wear Red: AKA Why I Hate Shopping

    I hate shopping!

    It is true. I am not your stereotypical female. I do not like shopping, and never really have.

    There are a few exceptions though. I don’t mind grocery stores, garage sales, antique shops, and quirky, fun stores or even tourist trap shops. However, I am not one who can wander around for hours looking at every little thing. I am one who knows at a glance if I like anything. If I don’t, I move on. READ MORE

    9 Items Moms Need An Advanced Degree To Purchase

    Many moons ago, I had to flash an ID for beer.  I’ve now decided that the grocery store should also make it mandatory for shoppers to provide proof of procurement expertise when purchasing certain products.  I’ve made this decision based on my own inability to accurately select from the 17,000+ options provided for each product, without thorough study and careful contemplation.  Surely if we all had some kind of advanced grocery-getting degrees, the shopping experience would be better for everyone.

    Suck It Cupid: Valentine’s Day During Childhood VS Adulthood

    With Valentine’s Day only a few days away, I can’t help but reminisce about the V-days of yore (ah, yore, such a wonderful time!). I remember when this day evoked all kinds of emotions….mainly fear, fear that the Punky Brewster valentines I was handing out would be met with zero reciprocation.

    Now, it’s a day that evokes worry: What will we do? Where will we find a sitter? Can we get a reservation? Why am I even thinking about all this when I know that we won’t leave the house because Dateline is on? READ MORE
