I am raising two Mama’s Boys… and proud of it!

What comes to mind when you hear the term “mama’s boy”? Is it a sissy still clinging to an apron string? Maybe it conjures up an image of a crybaby on the ball field? Well, I’m raising two mama’s boys and I’d like to explain why that’s a GOOD thing. For starters, who better to…

From Rock n’ Roll to Rock Bottom: A Story of “ya’ never know”

I have friends from all walks of life… Including… duh duh duuuuuhhhh CONSERVATIVES. If you’re at all familiar with my point of view, you’ve probably noticed that I’m not. That’s not to say that I’m purely left, bleeding heart, liberal either. I lean a bit to the right on a number of issues. Publicly poor…

Up In Smoke: Confessions of a Pot Smoking Mom

There’s a stigma attached to the use of marijuana. It’s different than it was say, 20 years ago but it’s still not widely accepted as “no big deal”… Like it should be. The image of dirty hippies in a field climbing out of their psychedelic school bus, with their naked children and daisy chains. The…

The Disney Dichotomy

It’s the happiest place on earth! Happiest place…. Happiest…. I need to find my happy place. Disney is an anomaly to me. People go, they spend a ton of money, they sometimes do it every year and some go (gasp!) more than once a year!!! I cannot fathom the motivation behind that, but I digress….

I love my kids more than you love yours… And other lies

Let me begin, by saying that I completely respect the choice to stay home with your children. Likewise, I respect a mother who’s chosen to work outside of the home. Further, I understand that sometimes there is no choice in the matter. Possibly the work you do doesn’t pay enough to warrant the cost of…

A fairytale in size medium

Once upon a time, in a land far far away there were a million tiny princesses. Each one was exactly like the other and the world was…. Incredibly boring. I’ve recently learned of a store called Brandy Melville, in which everything they sell comes in one, very tiny, very exclusive, very “me but not you”,…

An Open Letter to Fox News and “The Five”

Dear Fox News and “The Five”, I’d like to take a moment to conjure up the image of Kimberly Guilfoyle holding her head in her hands asking “Why did they ruin my thing?”. Indeed, gentlemen (and I use that term loosely), why did you ruin her thing? In fact, why did you think that it…

A PSA to creepy clowns from Mama Bears everywhere…

Lately there have been a number of “funny” situations involving terrifyingly evil looking clowns. In the news, people have reported sightings of these clowns in the middle of the night in lonely streets and parking lots. Those incidents took place in Wasco, California and from what I understand, is a husband and wife photo project….

Type A and the perpetually late

It’s not my desire to man bash with this post. Men and women are different in obvious and necessary ways… In fact, let me back up. This doesn’t apply only to men, I am sure that there are many husbands who hold shit down for their wives… I just don’t know them. So, instead of…

The Divided States Of America

If “We the people” know anything, it’s that we are NOT The UNITED States of America. Quite the contrary, we are The DIVIDED States of America. Our leaders, corporate influences, special interest groups and egos have made that a certainty. They have made two sides of every argument and with the help of social media,…
