10 Things I would have never said before becoming a parent

Parenthood has been full of surprises, and I surely never would have never imagined some of the wonders it held until I actually became a Mother. There were emotions I had never felt, things I’d never dreamed of doing, oh, and then the things I never would have thought I’d hear myself say….Head over to […]

7 of the Worst Fall Fashions of 2011

It looks as though she may have caught bird flu from the pigeon that appears to be impaled on her head. Poor girl.

Yesterday I was standing in line at the grocery store and I saw something sticking out of the back of the woman’s hair in front of me.  At first glance I thought it was a long piece of fuzz.  I got her attention and thoughtfully told her she had something in her hair, and I […]

10 Signs you might be the parent of a toddler

Don't let her sweet exterior fool you, Nature made the toddler cute for a reason. My daughter, my third and final toddler, is giving me a run for my money (and sanity).

Last month all three kids celebrated their birthdays.  Joey, my oldest, is now six years old and is eager (for the time being) to get back to school and start first grade.  Jake, who turned four over the weekend, is finally out of the dreaded toddler stage (for the most part).  And Cecilia, dear, sweet, […]

So I had a conversation with a friend about a baby shower we’re attending.  Both of us being slackers, we of course waited to buy gifts and now we have three choices left on the registry: a $600.00 Glider for the nursery or buy her socks and baby soap and look like douche bags.  So […]

5 Unconventional Sex-Ed Methods

I promise this is her last appearance *fingers crossed*

A few weeks ago, after reading an article on Babble that featured a birthing doll, many of you had the same reaction I did…WTF?  Not surprisingly, however, I got some feedback from a few of my free spirited Mom readers who were raving about this crocheted nightmare.  It really got me thinking though…what was I […]

The truth hurts. This is especially try when the truths I speak of are about what my body is now like after three kids and rapidly closing in on my 33rd birthday. Sure I could exercise, but I could also just as easily sit on my couch whining about my girth while shoveling down a […]

Be afraid, be very afraid


A phobia is defined as an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something.  Key words there being extreme and irrational. I’ve always been prone to make a big deal out of things, and a fair adjective to describe me would be dramatic.  So when I say there are things in this world that […]

Coolest Boobs on the Block

Well, I’m enjoying yet another Mid-Atlantic Sprummer where we seemed to have skipped over the moderate and median temperatures associated with Spring, and have gone from our frigid winter weather right into sweltering heat and oppressive humidity.  In fact, as I sit here in my living room with the blinds closed, a tall glass of […]

6 Things to do for the Rapture

I posted this on Facebook and asked if it was too formal. Apparently, it's WAY too formal for a Rapture.

As always, it’s last minute preparations for me.  Driving down the road just this week, I noticed a billboard indicating that the Rapture was happening this Saturday, May 21st, and as usual, I have nothing to wear!  For some reason my mind must have been on the Mayan Calendar, and I thought I had a […]

10 Bad Father’s Day Gifts

Kleen Stride Shoes for the douche Dad that bought you "Mop Slippers" for Mother's Day

Well, after the Horrible Holiday Gift Guide and Bad Mother’s Day Gifts, it seems only fitting that I found some equally awful gifts for the Dads in your life.  This, of course, is especially true if you actually received any of the products from either of those lists.  So if you’re looking to get back […]
