Accidentally Boujie

I heard a joke a while back from a comedian that when they were little, the family couldn’t afford for them to be asthmatic or lactose intolerant. I cannot pretend this isn’t true for me. I recently had my food allergies tested and found that I am ✨sensitive✨ to most of the foods I ate. […]

Geriatric School

I had the bright idea 2 months ago to go back to school and get my AA and then a teaching degree. Have I had a stroke? No. Not that I know of. I’m just a glutton for doing things the hard way. 45 and paying someone to teach me math. Math that I failed […]

Teen Parenting

This shit is not for the weak. When I had little babies I remember parents of teens commenting on how they’d love to switch places with me and my toddler. Sometimes even mid-grocery-store tantrum. I would just look at them like, “WTF are you saying to me right now?! Your teen can wipe his own […]

Vacay All Day

I am writing from La La Land, y’all! In May I bought tickets to the Live Nightmare Before Christmas show for this weekend. I am beyond excited to be doing that, but I booked it anticipating being able to take my daughter. She’s my travel buddy at this point. I expected to be able to […]

Forking Forks

I started seeing a naturopath. We checked my food allergies because I was having to take a daily heartburn medication to prevent awful acid reflux day and night. Turns out I’m allergic to 90% of the food I was eating! Cow milk, egg yolks, peanuts, almonds, oats, wheat, gluten (duh) , cheddar cheese. So now […]

Here for the stress

Don’t mind me, I’m just here parenting through the stress. No big whoop. With the Pandemic Pandemonium in full swing, everything else is either amplified or pales in comparison. I find this Covid pandemic puts things into really clear perspective…. mostly. For instance, having drama at your job right now is a luxury. It means […]

Just GO Already!

Vacations, amiright?! We have a little tiny getaway spot near the ocean in the Pacific Northwest. I say this to paint a picture not of soft, warm, sunny sandy beaches but of overcast, cold, small town coast line with alternating cold sand, pebbles, and driftwood. We love it. It is, in fact, a getaway. It […]

Seething Soapbox

Scrolling through Netflix the other night, I landed on an interesting looking documentary called, “Pray Away”. Being a parent of a gay teen and a Catholic School “Survivor” myself, this piqued my interest. Let me just say this in advance; If you are easily triggered by unfair representation or agenda regarding the LGBTQ community, save […]

Mom Limbo

Mimbo. This is where I’m at right now. I’m in between. I have a 15 year old and a 10 year old. Life is no longer a day to day mission to make it to bedtime. I no longer have to manage naps and bottles and snack time and preschool or kindergarten. I am not […]

Aging Painfully

This is one of those gripey posts, so just move along if you aren’t interested. You know that saying that only the lucky have the privilege of aging? All due respect, I call bullshit. In the past two weeks, my privileged aging body has been defeated by the most simple of obstacles: 1. Bug Bites: […]
