Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Sock Threads and Rain Boots
Jenny Hills

Sacrificing My Sanity to Get Out of the House

“The threads”, yells Bug in a blood curdling scream.

“The threads, they’re hurting my toes!”

Here we are: another rainy day rushing out of the house and another fight with Bug over which socks are the most comfortable with his rain boots. Tomorrow it will be which socks go with his gym sneakers and I’ll get to hear “the threads, the threads” all over again. READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Why Turning 30 Doesn't Have To Suck

    Turning 30 Doesn't Have To Suck

    Warning: This post is Rated PG13 for containing colorful language, and may not be suitable for people who do not have a sense of humor. If this offends you, please read no further, I promise it won’t hurt my feelings

    Let’s be honest, as far as birthdays are concerned, after 21, it’s all downhill.

    I don’t mean to be so cynical about it, but it’s true. I mean, I have literally never in my life heard someone exclaim with joy, “Guess what guys, I turn 30 next week. I am SO excited!” have you? I didn’t think so. So yeah, that’s where I am in life, turning 30, the big 3-OH, or dirty 30, whatever they are calling it these days. READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Little White Lies, Bluffs, and One Direction
    Kristen Daukas

    White Lies, Bluffs, and One Direction

    Remember the day when your kids were little and you could throw out little bluffs to them? You know the ones… “you keep your room clean for 2 weeks and you can get that puppy” or “if you don’t hit your brother the entire day, you can have 2 desserts”. You know they’ll never hit the mark, so it’s a pretty safe bet, right?

    You know it’s not right (especially while you’re teaching them not to tell stories) but we’ve all done it. The problem with this scenario is that kids get older and wiser at some point – they’re not going to only call your bluff but show that their hand is a full house when all you have is dead man walking.

    Case in point – my house last week. READ MORE

    If I Were 22: Embrace Your Inner Newbie

    When I meet people, they often end up asking me for advice. Sometimes I get this question from students, other times it’s from young people starting out in their careers. They ask me, “If you could do it all over again, what would you do differently?” And that brings back a flood of memories and all the hard-earned life lessons I’ve learned. READ MORE
