Reading Material and Some Big Stuff

April 17, 2014
updated-reading-material

Each week, I compile a small collection of stuff I wrote, read, tried, watched, tasted, fell asleep on ( last two are mostly a joke). If you’ve been following the news this week, you’ve seen that airlines have featured heavily for various reasons. A video of one flight attendant went viral, and I wrote about […]

Common scene when Lola comes to visit: [Lola enters. Lola greets the girls with great enthusiasm. Lola hugs Jack. Lola puts the kettle on for tea. Lola makes a sandwich, eats it, washes the plate, reads the comments section on CNN.com, knits an afghan, files her taxes, contemplates world peace, then greets me.] “Cute sweater, […]

A Well-Oiled Machine (Maybe Someday)

Kids

I am not turning into Captain Von Trapp, but I’m a little bit turning into Captain Von Trapp. Not that I’m blowing a whistle and expecting my kids to come, but I’ve realized that a few things really help our household run a little bit more smoothly, especially at the times of the day that […]

The Parenting/Relationship/Happiness Correlation Survey Results

The Parenting/Relationship/Happiness Correlation Survey

Last fall I wrote a post called The Parenting/Relationship/Happiness Correlation, mostly discussing.. well.. the correlation between parenting, relational health, and personal happiness. I took some really interesting (and outrageous) quotes and stats about how parents feel. Some of you were shocked, some of you totally understood, and many of you wanted to keep the conversation […]

This is How I Feel, Volume 50

50. Fifty! Craaaaazyyyyy. It all started with this post. I did a follow up a little while later, then turned it into a monthly feature. We’ve been doing it once a week for awhile now, and after every single week I go “That’s it. I’ve run out of GIFs and I’ve run out of captions. […]

Minnie’s Birth Story

April 9, 2014
lola-and-minnie

Thirty minutes after midnight, my third daughter turned two years old. If the words ‘birth’ and ‘story’ make you feel wildly uncomfortable, I kindly suggest that you check out another post. Like yesterday’s cartoon! Or Friday’s TIHIF. This post is a little graphic, and I’m a little bit nudey in the video. My tank top […]

PSA: It Might Just Be Cranky Resting Face

April 8, 2014
Cranky Resting Face

At the conference in Orlando last month, I approached a friend who was standing inside a room, and she looked mad. I walked up to her and was like, “Hey, what’s wrong?” She told me nothing was wrong, and I gave her a look and I’m all “No really, are you okay?” because we’re friends […]

Each week, I compile a small collection of stuff I wrote, read, tried, watched, tasted, fell asleep on ( last two are mostly a joke). After a survey in Brazil revealed that a shocking 65% of those surveyed at least partially agreed with the statement “If women knew how to behave, there would be less rape,” […]
