    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - I'm Retiring Two Body Parts

    I’m Retiring Two Body Parts

    Another body part is retiring. Well, 2 actually.

    I have made no secret about the fact that I am in a state of simultaneous mourning / elation this year. 2014: the first time in 6 years that I will not be pregnant or nursing — because we have decided to retire my uterus and declare that 3 kids in 5 years is probably enough kids. READ MORE

    I Love Breasts.

    Breasts. Big ones. And small, perky ones too. I love them—other women’s and my own. I love the way they feel in my hands and under my tongue. I like to lick, suck, bite them. I could play with them...Read More

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - So Long, It's Been Good To Know You

    So Long, It’s Been Good To Know You.

    I’m a good mother.

    I’m not a perfect mother. I could easily fill up 100 pages with mistakes I made just this weekend.

    But unlike the deep bouts of doubt I once had over whether I was a good actor or singer, or the doubts I can have today over whether I’m a good writer, blogger, gardener, or even friend, I don’t have too many over my ability as a mother.

    Motherhood fits my personal skills really well. I’m a natural born nurturer. The years I spent on a therapist’s couch working on myself have given me a fair amount of patience, and my love of theater and art have always gelled well with kids. READ MORE
