ten years

Today, my oldest child turns ten years old. While this milestone is a big deal for kids, I feel like it’s an even bigger milestone for their mothers. Of course, it marks your child’s tenth year on this planet, but when it’s your first child, it also marks the tenth anniversary of you becoming a Mom. Perhaps I’ll get myself …

birthday parties

When I was a kid, birthday parties were nothing but a group of your friends coming over to your house to play, eat some food, sing “Happy Birthday,” and have some cake. Then, somewhere over the following two decades, something happened. Birthday parties became big events, with themes, where you have to invite every person you’ve ever met, and every …

grocery shopping

I. Hate. Grocery shopping. I’ve written about how much I loathe it before, and my feelings have not changed in the slightest. It’s crowded, there are annoying displays in all the aisles, and they’re always changing the layout to try and trick us into buying stuff we usually don’t. I typically go grocery shopping on Fridays, as that’s when the new …

dogs

When I was a new mother, I had several people make comments to me comparing their new puppy to my newborn human, person. This never made me angry, as it does some people, but it certainly made me a little “eye-rolly.” While I have never owned any dogs, at the time I had been around them enough to know that …

school pictures

It’s that time of year again (at least, here in the U.S.). Time for parents to complain about having to shell out their hard-earned money for some head shots of their little cherubs, but eventually do it anyway. That’s right! It’s time for school pictures! I’ll admit that I used to purchase the cheapest package of school pictures they had …

please come back

Dear School Year, Please come back! I know what I said before, but I swear I didn’t mean any of it! I wasn’t in my right mind! I was in a stupor from chaperoning too many field trips, and I didn’t know what I was saying!!! Please, please come back! I don’t know if I can take any more of the arguing, the …
