Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - You Can't Always Get What You Want

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,”...Read More

    Accidental Vagina

    My daughter had a great idea: she wanted to start a book club! She decided the first book would be Junie B. Jones, 1st Grader: Aloha-ha-ha, perfect book to read the summer before heading into 1st grade.

How difficult could that be? I’d simply use the Wonder Mold we already owned— you know, the one you use to make the dress and stick the doll torso in the top? Only we’d stick sparklers in the top, frost it with chocolate, get some molten lava flowing down its sides and boom, done. Right? READ MORE

    10 Signs You Are Living With A Little Girl

    Back To School Advice For My Daughter

    Well here we are… it’s back to school time again. This is our 11th first day of school and we have 6 more to go before we’re completely done. I love the first day of school more than I love the first day of the new year but not why you think. To me (and most moms) this day is really the start of the new year. We have fresh new day-timers, pencils, notebooks and a chance to make a good great first impression. READ MORE

    Heard too many times in Rome: “Oh, is that your daughter? That your son? Are you one of those women who couldn’t get pregnant so you adopted and then you had a miracle pregnancy?” READ MORE
