Sh*t My Seven Year Old Says: Part 4

Hi. It’s me, Eden’s mom. Have you missed us? Eden’s been busy turning 7, learning all the lyrics to Hamilton the musical by heart and faking sick at school 2-3 times a week so I’ll come pick her up. She’s just a normal girl trying to lead a normal life and not let her Internet celebrity go to her head.

I kid. I kid. Her ego couldn’t possibly be any bigger and it’s one of my favorite things about her.

Without further ado…. READ MORE

    Prepping For Re-Entry

    In every space movie I’ve ever seen, the most dangerous part of the trip is always re-entry. Hurtling back to Earth at high speed, searing heat and vibration threatening to break the ship apart. Gasps of relief when the heroes make it...

    Kid-Friendly Pumpkin Spice Frappe!

    This is a great way to kick off the Fall season. A pumpkin spice frappe. Yum! It's less than 100 calories and approximately 2 grams of fat. Since I'm lactose-intolerant, I used almond milk. You can also omit the coffee so the little ones...

    The Number One Thing All Moms Want

    There are some answers here that at first gander, you might think are the real answer, such as:

    To pee alone. Sure, I’d love to pee alone. I would adore going to Walmart without having to schlep a child in the stall with me and tell another one to stand outside the stall door and look at the floor. I have boys. One is seven and one is two. It’s dangerous to let the oldest go to the restroom by himself. I’ve let him twice and the fact that I ducked my head in and out of the door repeatedly, and the looks that I got from the men coming out, told me that we’re not ready for that step yet. We’re just not. READ MORE

    Paranoia: How The Fear Of Another Miscarriage Haunts My Every Thought

    I’ve turned into a paranoid mess.  And, I hate it.
