Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Sometimes My Kid Says Inappropriate Things And I Laugh At Her Instead of Reprimand

Sometimes My Kid Says Inappropriate Things And I Laugh At Her Instead of Reprimand

Remember that time I told you I have 5 kids? That was completely true. What I didn’t tell you is they’re amazing and crazy and they make me feel amazing, but mostly just crazy.

I didn’t realize just how different kids from the same family could be till I had 5 of them and every single one of them is completely different. Especially my youngest, Eden.

Eden just turned 5 years old, but she has a very old soul. She was born middle aged. After 5 kids she manages to make me feel like a rookie in parenting. READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - that one thing that happened that you dont want to remember
    Christina Antus

    That Thing That Happened. The One You Don’t Want to Remember. Ever.

    This all took place several weeks ago. It’s just been too painful to discuss. Or even think about, really.

    It was the start of a peaceful end to a chaotic week.

    Five days earlier, both of my kids got a cold. Then a fever. Then a cough. Then no one slept. So, by the time this day rolled around I was an aspiring sleep-aid commercial.

    My one-year old was asleep for an afternoon nap. My two-year old and I had just settled on the couch with a puzzle. READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - This is Thirty: Tinder

    This is 30: Tinder

    Ladies, let’s talk about online dating real quick.

    I’ve been divorced for some time but I just recently got out of a relationship (if you can even call it that) with a man I’d been seeing for over a year and a half. I’m not even remotely close to being emotionally ready to jump back on the dating wagon but last weekend when I found myself child-free and 4 bottles into a 6-pack of hard cider I downloaded a dating app on my iPhone called Tinder where you basically judge people on their physical appearance to determine if you have a connection.

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - I'm Not A Cokehead, Just Pregnant!

    I Swear I’m Not A Cokehead – Just Pregnant

    This time around, pregnancy has given me nosebleeds with all that extra blood I’m pumping and a stuffy nose. So, here I am with the constant sniffles but I want to put a sign on my shirt that says “I swear I’m not a cokehead. Just pregnant!”

    The only thing I’ve been snorting are Vicks fumes so I can breathe. I even got one of those stick inhalers that I carry around with me so I won’t be as obvious but who am I kidding. I’ll be in the makeup aisle at Target, looking to make sure nobody is around, and I start huffing on my Vicks stick. That doesn’t look strange at all.

    Yesterday morning, I had quite the party in my pants but unfortunately, not that kind. READ MORE
