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 …

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 …

It makes me …

Once you have kids, going out with your gal pals takes a back seat to everything else. But for your sanity, it’s important to make it a point to get together with your friends for some adult conversation.

When you become a Mother, your life becomes one continuous inner struggle. The day I brought my first child home from the hospital, I found my mind constantly being pulled in two directions, which I suppose I should have seen coming. I knew for nine months that I would be caring for another human life in addition to my own; it’s …
