tapping into my inner Karen

I’ve always been a weenie. A people pleaser. I apologize to servers when they mess up my order. My most common phrase in public is probably “I’m Sorry…”. As a grown-up woman, three years shy of 40, I’m ashamed of my timidity. There’s a fine line between being assertive and being a bitch, but I’mContinue reading “tapping into my inner Karen”

over-sharing

A few days ago I saw a headline on people.com, “Kristen Bell’s 5 year-old is Still in Diapers”. Very quickly many thoughts went through my head. First- judgement. I can admit it. 5 seems really old to be in diapers. Then, secondly- solidarity. My 5 year old daughter is still in diapers overnight. Her pediatricianContinue reading “over-sharing”

the boredom curve

I’m going to admit something that is going to make me sound like an inattentive mother. I’ve gotten exceptionally talented at ignoring my kids. No, no, hear me out.

Why do we do this? Since I’ve deactivated my Facebook account I’ve not had to worry aboutContinue reading “Online Debates & Social Media”

Creeping of Christmas

I just stood in line 20 minutes for a cheap red plastic cup. It was free. It has a major corporate logo on the side, and if I use it after 2pm between now and January 7, 2019, I will receive fifty cents off every $5 “Holiday” drink. If you are in the know, youContinue reading “Creeping of Christmas”

Struggles of the Student Mom

My blog is two years old! It’s amazing to think about where I was two years ago, when I started this blog as an outlet and break up of time, to where I am today. Two years ago I was snuggling newborn baby H and deep into that newborn bliss. I can say without hesitationContinue reading “Struggles of the Student Mom”
