Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Beach Day With Kids

The Beach: People With Kids VS. People Without Kids

I have two boys.  They require a crap ton of preparation before heading to the beach. As much as I adore summer and the time I get with them I find myself sometimes longing for the days when all it took...Read More

  • Felicitations: What I Hope I Don’t Repeat in 2013

    Happy New Year! I always feel as if the New Year really starts in September. I am not sure what went into the decision to make it January 1st, probably really smart people have tons 0f irrefutable evidence about why January makes more sense...

  • Back To The Mat: Week 2

    As I looked into the rear view mirror, I was blown away by both the blood-orange sky and my totally relaxed state of mind. It had been a rough week – but I was ready to roll out my mat. I had not yet arrived at the studio. If being alone ...

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Dear Bladder
    Deva Dalporto

    Dear Bladder

    Dear Bladder,

    OK, we have to talk. You have become extremely high maintenance. I can’t take you to the bathroom every 20 minutes. I’ve got better things to do. Like take my preschooler to the bathroom every 20 minutes.

    Your persistent need to be emptied is cramping my style. I’d like to be able to “hold it” like the good old days. Remember them? I’d like to not leak when I laugh or cough or smile too widely. I’d like to be able to go out and not stress about whether there will be a bathroom nearby. I get seriously anxious when I’m at the park and there’s no John in sight because I know you’re going to start whining, “I gotta go! I gotta goooooo! Empty me ooooout!” You’re worse than a toddler.

  • You Can’t Always Get What You Want

    I’ve spent the last 45 days, give or take, complaining. Bitching. Griping. Moping. In a serious wave of funk. And it’s time to stop. Since my friends are far too kind to tell me to “Get over yourself, you idiot,” I am forced to take...

  • I Don’t Love My Baby

    “I don’t love my baby”, she said to me nonchalantly and with such a straight face that I laughed because I thought she was joking. Still laughing, I asked, “You’re joking, right?” and then I saw it in her eyes, glassy from tears...

    Is Easter The New Christmas?

    Standing in line at Walmart on Sunday I couldn’t help but notice the types of loot parents are now putting in their kid’s Easter baskets. Handheld gaming consoles, video games, tablet computers, MP3 players, Furbies…expensive electronics and toys. I even saw one mom buying an electric scooter! How big is that child’s basket, woman?!?!

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - What Not To Say To Parents Of Daughters

    What Not To Say To Parents of Daughters

    When you’re a parent, you get lots of advice.  And if you know me, you know that I hate unsolicited advice. I hated it when I was single and people told me how to find a husband. I hated it when I was pregnant and people told me how I should take care of myself. I hated it when my kids were small and people told me how to discipline them. Unless I walk up to you and say “Excuse me, random stranger – could you please tell me your thoughts on ____________ ” I really don’t want to hear your advice. READ MORE
